As previously reported, 34 submissions across a wide range of disciplines were received in response to our call for feasibility study proposals. Following a rigorous review process, we are delighted to announce that the following four studies have been selected for funding:
- Investigating the Impact of CAD Data Transfer Standards for 3DP-RDM – Dr Eujin Pei, Brunel University
- OPTIMOS PRIME: Organising Production Technology Into MOst Responsive States – 3D PRInt Machine Enabled Networks – Prof. Duncan McFarlane, University of Cambridge, and Edinburgh University
- The enabling role of 3DP in redistributed manufacturing: A total cost model – Dr Martin Baumers, University of Nottingham, and University of Oxford
- Redistributing Material Supply Chains for 3D printing – Dr Matthias Holweg, University of Oxford
Congratulations go to the teams that submitted these proposals. We’ll provide more information on the blog about each of these projects in due course.
We’re disappointed that we couldn’t fund more than these four projects. However we will be running a second feasibility study competition in 2016 and hope to receive further high quality proposals.
