Innovation Challenge: Additive Manufacturing

The NCCR DFAB and the innovation promoter IBAM jointly held the first part of a two-day workshop on additive manufacturing in construction on 7 September. On the first day of the Innovation Challenge, participants from academia and the construction industry worked out challenges for which solutions will be found on the second day. The best proposed solutions will be funded with up to CHF 25,000 to implement them as prototypes and then develop them further into an InnoSuisse project. For the first time, the Innovation Booster had extended the topic of additive manufacturing to the construction industry and the participants from architecture and the construction industry very much appreciated the committed exchange and are looking forward to the second part on 16.11. in Empa's NEST building.
