Additive manufacturing initiative at the Ångström laboratory
unites the different research efforts, and the education connected to additive manufacturing at the faculty of science and technology at Uppsala university.

Research projects

There are AM-related research at the departments for chemistry, engineering sciences, and physics. These range from materials design to devlopment of new cutting edge AM equipment, and have applications ranging from life sciences to the metal industry.

The research is funded from several sources, and present projects include the Vinnova comptence centre "AddLife - additive manufacturing for life sciences", and "Additive manufacturing – development of processes and materials" financed by the Swedish foundation for strategic research (SSF)

Research projects in AM

Education in AM

A new international masterprogramme in additive manufacturing is being created at Uppsala university, and will accept first students autumn 2020. First application deadline is january 15th  2020, and then annualy after that. More information on the central university web: Master's Programme in Additive Manufacturing 2020/2021

Additive manufacturing is also being integrated into courses at other undergraduate study programmes, particularly our programmes in materials science and materials chemistry.

During autumn 2019 a graduate course for PhD students is also given in "3D printing for biomedical materials". This course will be given in the future as well, contact Wei Xia for more information on this course.


The initative organises seminars on AM-related topics, which are open for all interested.
