Advanced Manufacturing techniques such as additive manufacturing, nanomanufacturing, biohybridisation, integrated artificial intelligence or robotics, is evolving fast, even in times of deep crisis. It is therefore crucial for European industry to renew itself.
Unfortunately, the adoption of such "decisive" technologies remains underdeveloped due to multiple technological and commercial limitations.
The DeepInc network aims to create an appropriate ecosystem able to address, in a dynamic and collaborative way, many of these limitations.
To achieve this goal the event of DeepInc associates 3 renowned academic partners: Arts & Metiers Institute of Technology (France), Politecnico di Torino & I3P (Italy), University College Dublin (Ireland). All partners benefit from a rich innovation and entrepreneurial environment, reuniting incubators, technological clusters and both national and European technological platforms.
In this perspective, from 19 to 24 October, the Politecnico di Torino and I3P will host a 5-day virtual training on New Business Models, economic, managerial and organization consequences, and a 3D Hackathon on Additive Technologies.
