Additive manufacturing, bringing the maker revolution to Belgium

"Additive manufacturing" or "3D printing" is a process of manufacturing real objects, by using a 3D-printer. The 3D-printer “prints” or builds materials like plastics, metals or ceramics by spraying very small layers on top of each other with a laser.

This new technique will not only affect our society in many different ways, it will also have a profound, maybe even shattering effect on Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and their role in business models.

3D-printing will revolutionize end-product design, by handing over control of the design to the user, who will also be the manufacturer. Anybody, will be able to design their own product and to print it immediately : sunglasses, shoes, jewelry, ….

Come and discover this new technology and get ideas for web applications or for new businesses.

You will able to watch demos from 3D printers!


Speakers:1/ Joren De Wachter is a specialized professional, uniquely positioned in providing advise on integrating Technology, Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and business models. 2/ Martijn Joris, co-founder of Twikit, a web application which combines 3Dprinting, online and 3D creation .
3/ TBD

Who Should Come: Tech Entrepreneurs & people who are curious about this new technology.

Price: Free (please book you free ticket above.)
