Seminars at Ångström

The Additive manufacturing initiative at the Ångström laboratory organises 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. Attendees are offered to join seminars in person (free sandwich for lunch is provided upon registration) and we are also broadcasting lectures on Zoom for those who cannot join us on-campus. Registration is required.

Seminars will be announced in our calendar as well as on LinkedIn channel of AM4Life Competence Centre.
