Workshop: Accelerating NSF Research in Additive Manufacturing toward Industrial Applications

August 17-18, 2017 Pittsburgh, PA

Objective

To provide an interaction venue for NSF supported researchers in additive manufacturing (AM) and representatives of relevant industries. This workshop is a means by which attendees from industry are exposed to the most recent results of basic additive manufacturing (AM) research, while basic researchers have the unique opportunity to hear application-oriented perspectives and challenges.  Targeted dissemination of NSF-funded research results to the most likely beneficiaries in industry will enable forging new academia-industry collaborations.
