DREAM Summer School
Metal Additive manufacturing for real industrial applications: from the lab to the product

DREAM Summer School focuses on:

- The potential improvement of AM in real manufacturing conditions in terms of productivity, quality and reliability, also using a LCA approach;
- The competitiveness at all steps of the AM supply chain to bring it to a significant step further towards larger industrial scale.

3 June 2019 - 7 June 2019
Maranello (MO), Italy

The DREAM project, funded by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 Factories of the Future initiative, organizes a Summer School in the Motor Valley between Modena and Maranello from 3rd to 7th June 2019 entitled "Metal Additive manufacturing for real industrial applications: from the lab to the product". The school is aimed at researchers, scientists and professionals interested in the latest additive manufacturing and 3D printing trends.
DREAM Summer School aims to show how important international companies use the additive manufacturing technique for the realization of some of their products, guaranteeing optimized performances with respect to normal standards.

Participants will then have the opportunity to visit the Ferrari Museum in Maranello and the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena to better understand how to use the additive metal printing technology in the automotive sector; they will also visit the laboratories of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia to see the researchers at work. Moreover, it will be possible to visit the headquarters of R.B. in Mirandola, a company specialized in the design, research and development and manufacture of high precision molds. In addition to the research activity and the results obtained from the DREAM project, ample space will also be dedicated to the presentation of the work carried out by other funded projects in the field of additive manufacturing in the European Research Framework Programme Horizon 2020.

The Summer School aims to discuss what are the future trends of Additive Manufacturing for its widespread adoption in the industrial sector, and also to think about where funding should be allocated in the next decade.

DREAM collaborates with the key EU projects HYPROCELL, BIONICAIRCRAFT, ENCOMPASS & LASIMM, PARADDISE, AMOS, MMTECH, HIPERLAM, motivated by a mutual interest in the field of Additive Manufacturing (AM) and driven to promote the benefits of European Strategic Actions for AM, under the patronage of the Common Dissemination Booster.

The school accepts a maximum of 35 participants. The registration fee includes: transfer from Bologna airport, accommodation for 4 nights in full board at the Maranello Village, teaching material, free wi-fi, guided tours and Gala Dinner.


until 21st April 2019 EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION (870 euro) all inclusive
from the 22nd of April 2019 (980 euro) all inclusive
