The need for input and guidance from academics, industrialists and policymakers has led us to create an ‘advisory network’ for the project.
A first meeting involving members of this network was held in December at the Institute for Manufacturing, including representatives from the BSI, the Centre for Science and Policy, Dyson, the IET and Nesta. Participants contributed their perspectives on the specific challenges that we should investigate within our overall project plan.
Those with an active professional interest in the impacts of 3D printing are invited to contact the research team and join this growing community.
