Regional co- investment in 3DP demo case

Friday, December 22, 2017

University of Bologna and Alfred Nobel Science Park are pleased to announce the launch of a joint research and development package under the umbrella of the Vanguard Initiative in the area of additive manufacturing and development of hybrid components. The demo case is made possible through regional co-investment by the two Vanguard-regions Emilia Romagna and Örebro County. 
  
On the 1st of December, University of Bologna and Alfred Nobel Science Park launched a joint research and development package within the Vanguard Initiative 3DP pilot project. The aims of the cooperation include development of additive manufacturing methods for metal and carbon fibre composite components, their testing and characterization, and developing the technology for industrialization that is relevant to many sectors, including automotive and aerospace. Partners involved in the initiative research are Örebro University (Prof.Lars Pejryd, www.oru.se), LaserTech (www.lasertech.se) and Bofors Test Centre (www.testcentre.se) in Sweden, and from Italy MIND (www.mindresources.it) and Nextema (www.nextema.com).

The demo case is made possible through regional co-investment by the two Vanguard-regions Emilia Romagna and Örebro County. In Region Örebro County, the research and analysis will be conducted by Örebro university (OrU) and the test articles and test services will be provided by the Alfred Nobel Science Park (ANSP). The demo case is funded by Örebro University, the department for regional growth in Region Örebro County, Bologna University and involved industrial companies for access to industrial facilities and knowhow.
