The 1st Advanced Materials for Additive Manufacturing (AMAM-1) consortium has been launched on 21st November 2018 in Barcelona by the Centre for Business Innovation Ltd (www.cfbi.com) in order to provide the consortium members a unique insight into use of advanced materials in additive manufacturing, development of additive manufacturing technologies for various applications, and to facilitate the commercial uptake and bring together potential users with a shared interest to address commercialisation challenges. The consortium leader Dr Bojan Boskovic, from Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology Ltd (www.cnt-ltd.co.uk), is an expert in advanced materials commercialisation including nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes and graphene. He is also a leader of Nano-Carbon Enhanced Materials (NCEM) consortium related to commercialisation of nano-carbon materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes, that after five successful consortium series (NCEM-1, NCEM-2, NCEM-3, NCEM-4 and NCEM-5, with total of 25 meetings in Europe and USA is now in the 6th year (NCEM-6).
The AMAM consortium provides an opportunity to engage with leading companies in the supply chain and also with leading world class experts in a commercialisation pathfinder programme for a small fraction of time and total costs of alternatives such as consultancy, meetings, workshops and conferences. It could be used to develop additive manufacturing commercialisation strategy and supply chain through an active technology watch programme with a unique insight into state-of-the art of use of advanced materials in additive manufacturing and key player strategies and also to secure IP and develop additive manufacturing technologies through participations in collaborative R&D programmes and direct commercialisation partnerships with the NCEM members and presenting organisations.
The AMAM consortium is controlled by its members who are suggesting the topics of interest and additional members. This is an interactive process, with members explicitly discussing the scope, focus and location of future meetings at the conclusion of each meeting.
The AMAM consortium will be meeting together 5 times per year, usually at one of its members’ sites or hosted at a leading research institution. World class experts are invited to join and participate at the specific meetings related to their field of expertise.
