Association AGENT-3D

According to Prof. Christoph Leyens, the coordinator of the project named “AGENT-3D: Additive Manufacturing – Print new worlds”, the foundation of AGENT-3D e.V. on February 24, 2015, was an important step to ensure the optimal management and strategic orientation of this strong research alliance. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports the project within the research program “Zwanzig20 – partnership for innovation” with funding of up to 45 million euros.

The association also coordinates so-called “basic” projects and technology projects, administrative management and public relations. The focus is on the acquisition and integration of new partners, with the association serving as an important network platform.

At present the strategic alliance for research, innovation and growth in additive manufacturing is made up of 110 industrial and research partners. The chairman, Prof. Leyens, is supported by two deputies, Dr. Janny Lindemann from GfE-FREMAT, Freiberg, and Mr. Martin Schäfer from Siemens AG, Berlin. The association’s constitution foresees an extended Board of Directors of up to 10 members, a majority of whom will be from industry. This highlights AGENT-3D’s primary aim of fostering innovation for industrial applications.
