3D today. And tomorrow.
The association AGENT-3D e.V. is founded
On February 24, 2015 an association with the memorable name “AGENT-3D e.V.” was founded. This association is linked to the project of the same name “AGENT-3D: Additive Manufacturing – the 3D revolution of production in digital age”, which is part of the research program “Zwanzig20 – partnership for innovation” supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
At present, 86 partners from industry and science make up a strategic alliance for research, innovation and growth in additive manufacturing. Prof. Christoph Leyens, who coordinates the research initiative, explains: “The founding of this association represents an important step in the management and strategic orientation of the powerful research alliance.” Prof. Leyens, serving as Chair, is supported by two deputies, Dr. Janny Lindemann from GfE-FREMAT, Freiberg, and Mr. Martin Schäfer from Siemens AG, Berlin. Dr. Lindemann pointed out that: “The association’s constitution foresees an extended board of directors with a majority of industrial members. This underlines AGENT-3D’s focus on innovation for industry.” The association is also responsible for coordination, administrative management and public relations. Furthermore, it functions as a vital networking platform for members of the major research project.
