EOS Academia program promotes 3D printing at universities and research institutions
Leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, EOS, is expanding its Academia program to promote powder-based 3D printing at universities and research institutions. After registering, participating institutions can benefit from exclusive access to regular updates from the Additive Manufacturing world, such as sample applications, white papers, and various activities specially designed for the academic field. They will also get an exclusive access to three new packages. The combination of specialized training with the practical use of their own 3D printing systems will enable both researchers and lecturers to experience firsthand the host of possibilities this technology offers. As such they can actively teach their knowledge to others. At the same time, universities can increase their appeal as centers of education by utilizing the expertise they have gained to offer a corresponding range of courses on key 3D printing technology topics.
Dr. Adrian Keppler, CEO and speaker of the Corporate Management at EOS GmbH, says, “As a technology and market leader, it is essential for us to prepare the scientists and students of today for the professional requirements of tomorrow. For this reason, with our Academia program we are specifically promoting universities and research institutions by providing them with the best possible and state-of-the-art equipment.”
For more than 20 years, EOS has successfully supported researchers and academics with its Academia program and enabled them to purchase EOS systems at favorable conditions. Over 300 EOS systems are already in use at various universities and research institutions worldwide. These include the Technical University of Munich, the University of Wolverhampton (UK), the California Polytechnic State University (San Luis Obispo, USA) and the Incheon PolyTech (Seoul, South Korea).
