Additive Manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing has been identified as a critical element of Australia’s economic development and a driver of future jobs growth.

The Monash Technology Precinct has an important capacity in this area. There is significant potential to grow additive manufacturing and jobs as part of a major activity to build manufacturing capabilities and local supply chains in Australia.

During this event, the participants will have the opportunity to hear from industry and research leaders about some of the key digital aspects related to additive manufacturing and how capabilities and solutions are being developed and offered across multiple sectors.

Participating in this event is a must for people wanting to learn from an innovative and creative panel of invited speakers, and also to ask questions and engage with the community in the additive manufacturing sector within the Monash Technology Precinct..
