The project for lifelong learning in additive manufacturing (LILIAM) is a project within the Vanguard Initiative’s demo-case on Tooling, Machinery and Complex Shapes. LILIAM aims to give a European frame to training programs that specialise in adapting workers to additive manufacturing techniques, such as advanced 3D printing. The project has now received funding through EIT-KIC Calls and is expected to last 2 years, beginning in January 2019.
The LILIAM project was initiated after a Vanguard plenary meeting on the demo-case for Tooling, Machinery and Complex Shapes, since project members and participants in the meeting had specified a new need for training in additive manufacturing.
The project is lead by Politecnico di Milano and has several partners from the aforementioned demo-case on machinery and tooling, such as Tampere and Trentino.LILIAM further aims to give an European frame to dedicated training programs to specialise different categories of workers (operators, designers, and engineers) towards the control of additive manufacturing techniques.
