EU Parliament wants to face legal challenges of 3D printing with new legislation
The European Parliament has recently adopted a decision on 3D printing and the challenges it poses to intellectual property and civil liability and published a report on this (2017/2007(INI)).
More about this from our advisory councellor Dr. Andreas Leupold LL.M under the following link.

On July 9, 2018, the kick-off meeting of our new Materials working group took place above the roofs of the city at Berlin’s main station. We would like to thank everyone who made this start a success. Derived from the participants’ areas of interest, the event initially identified six focus groups with the following working titles:

  • High Performance Polymers
  • Elastomer Priniting
  • metal development
  • Specification, Qualification, Guidelines
  • Market Needs
  • Testing Method Standards

There will be a status report at the Annual Meeting 2018.
