Report from Advisory Council Meeting

[is-login]On January 31st and February 1st, the Advisory Board met for the first time for a two-day meeting at the representative office at Marienpark Berlin. After a short update from the office as well as latest board meeting, the aim of these days was to discuss the further strategic orientation of the network and to collect recommendations on the activities for 2019 from our experts. At its core, Mobility goes Additive will continue to link industries and support members in establishing contacts, to drive the topic of industrial additive manufacturing in new specialist markets (e.g. medical, industrial goods, “white goods”, construction machinery) while focusing its commitment primarily on Europe, while regularly gathering developments and impulses at international congresses.
We are especially proud of our new, fresher claim “We boost AM”, which will support our efforts to integrate additional target groups and markets into our network portfolio in future
Thanks to all involved for the productive brainstorming and this great result. Let’s go and boost AM![/is-login]

Cooperation booth EMO Hannover
