For those who stay — it’s worth it! Because there is a lot offered!
The fol­low­ing is an open and excit­ing pro­gram with many oppor­tu­ni­ties to net­work and get to know our new mem­bers.

We track all atten­dees about the net­work top­ics and suc­cess­es. The work­ing group lead­ers present their results and are open for dis­cus­sion.

What’s the news? That”s what report­ed by our speak­ers from var­i­ous indus­tries:
Christoph Hansen, Sauber Engi­neer­ing / For­mu­la 1 rac­ing team
Prof. Dr. Sabi­na Jeschke, Chief Tech­nol­o­gy and Dig­i­ti­za­tion Offi­cer DB AG
State Sec­re­tary Rick­erts, Sen­ate Berlin, with his vision of a 3D print­ing cap­i­tal

And you will be there when Mobil­i­ty goes Addi­tive opens the new premis­es of its office in the Berlin 3D Print­ing Hub!

Atten­tion — for the Annu­al Meet­ing: First come, first serve!

EU Par­lia­ment wants to face legal chal­lenges of 3D print­ing with new leg­is­la­tion
The Euro­pean Par­lia­ment has recent­ly adopt­ed a deci­sion on 3D print­ing and the chal­lenges it pos­es to intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty and civ­il lia­bil­i­ty and pub­lished a report on this (2017/2007(INI)).
More about this from our advi­so­ry coun­cel­lor Dr. Andreas Leupold LL.M under the fol­low­ing link.

On July 9, 2018, the kick-off meet­ing of our new Mate­ri­als work­ing group took place above the roofs of the city at Berlin’s main sta­tion. We would like to thank every­one who made this start a suc­cess. Derived from the par­tic­i­pants’ areas of inter­est, the event ini­tial­ly iden­ti­fied six focus groups with the fol­low­ing work­ing titles:

  • High Per­for­mance Poly­mers
  • Elas­tomer Prinit­ing
  • met­al devel­op­ment
  • Spec­i­fi­ca­tion, Qual­i­fi­ca­tion, Guide­lines
  • Mar­ket Needs
  • Test­ing Method Stan­dards

There will be a sta­tus report at the Annu­al Meet­ing 2018.
