Automotive Research & Innovation community need to gain insight into key European projects being conducted within the context of Factories-of-the-Future PPP and the results of which could be exploited in the Automotive Industry.
EU Industry Day is an event organised by the European Commission in Brussels on February 22nd and 23rd which objective is to update stakeholders on the Commission's strategic approach to industrial policy and actions to further develop industrial competitiveness in Europe.
As part of the Industry Days, an exhibition displaying EU-funded research and innovation projects has been organized by the European Commission in the same location, and KRAKEN is one of the showcased projects in relation to additive manufacturing.
The BARBARA project aims to develop new bio-based materials with innovative functionalities through the incorporation of additives coming from bio-mass so that, by means of Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), - the most widely spread technology for 3D printing (or additive manufacturing) - prototypes with industrial applications can be obtained.
Berta Gonzalvo (R&D Director) and Guillermo Vicente (3D printing area responsible) have participated in CEPprint3D conference with a lecture named “Innovative materials: specific requirements and printing strategies”.
