Sector Skills Strategy in Additive Manufacturing


Project description

Strengthening education-research-industry partnerships in Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) has been highlighted as a key enabler for sustaining economic growth, driving competitiveness and creating long-term jobs. SAM is a European Commission funded sector skills alliance developed to strengthen education-research-industry partnerships and to encourage creativity in companies and relevant educational and scientific institutions. The outcome of SAM is to establish a recognised International Qualifications System for Additive Manufacturing that will educate, prepare and upskill the workforce for the Additive Manufacturing sector. 

The SAM Consortium comprises of 16 European Partners and 32 Associated Partners covering different roles, including Social Actors, Industry Representatives and Education and Training Providers. The Project is being coordinated by the European Welding Federation (EWF). Dr Eujin Pei leads the project within Brunel University and work commenced from January 2019.
