AM@Å - seminars

Open seminar series organised by the initiative

AM@Å lunch seminars

The Additive manufacturing initiative at the Ångström laboratory torganises a series of lunch seminars together with U-PRINT and the AM4Life Competence Centre. This series goes under the name of Additive Manufacturing @ Uppsala University (AM@UU), and aim to broaden knowledge of Additive Manufacturing (AM) applications from life science to metallurgy, and to let audience to learn more about AM from both academic and industrial perspectives.

These seminars are held at the Ångström Laboratory and are open to all interested. During the Covid19 pandemic thse seminars have been held digitally via zoom. We anticipate that we will return to an on-campus format, but with the possibility to listen in on a live streaming via zoom.

Seminars will be announced in the schedule provided below and in our calendar, as well as on LinkedIn channel. If you want to receive e-mails about the seminars, please subscribe
