Our partner, the European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting (EWF), organizes the webinar ‘Across the AM Industry: the Required Skills-set by the Different Sectors’, that will take place online, on October 22 at 10:00 CEST. Gualtiero Fantoni, ASSETs+ project coordinator from the University of Pisa, will be one of the speakers.
The substantial growth of Additive Manufacturing is partly attributed to the fact that AM is being utilised across various sectors, which include Transportation, Medical and Health, Energy, Industry equipment and tooling, Construction among others.
In this context, there are different AM requirements across various industrial sectors, impacting the skills requirements and qualifications for professionals from the different sectors.
To foster the uptake of AM in various sectors, the involvement of different sectorial stakeholders in the identification and validation of necessary skills/qualifications is crucial as well as the engagement with different sectorial organizations to allow a sectorial view on skills and qualifications for AM.
The webinar will address the perspectives from different sectors towards a detailed understanding of their challenges and needs in AM. The results from Blueprints projects in the automotive, defence, maritime and construction sectors and their linkage with AM will be showcased.
Each speaker will present Blueprint project achievements, and specifically address their experience with Additive Manufacturing: challenges in using AM in their sector, specific requirements, the impact of using AM in workers’ qualification and training and other interesting implications.
