Responsible Design for AM
Responsible Design is an essential and emerging field that covers a range of multidisciplinary themes. This free one day event focuses on the Responsible Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) and will explore current perspectives from the wider 3D printing community, from grass roots to large scale initiatives. The event will showcase the positive impact AM is having on our world and provide a forum to strategise the future agenda of Responsible DfAM.
This EPSRC Design for Additive Manufacturing Network event brings together Theme Leaders from Loughborough University (UK) and the Western University (Canada) to host a programme of talks from academic, industry and maker community speakers, highlighting areas in sustainability, open source innovation, equality and inclusion, and socially responsible DfAM.
The event will be held online and will host a variety of talks as well targeted interactive sessions.
