International Summer School
New Advances in Materials
for Additive Manufacturing
5th-9th September 2022 - Brescia, Italy
Organized by University of Brescia and supported by University of Brescia Fund International Activities
Aims and scope
The summer school focuses on the latest advances in materials used and developed for additive manufacturing, involving both polymeric and metallic materials. The program will include frontal lectures given by the School Coordinators and Guest Speakers. Practical training sessions are also organized during the School. Hands-on activities will support the application of the acquired knowledge and will provide the possibility to try in person these tools and understand which one better fits the specific needs for scientific research. Innovative teaching strategies involving theatre activities are proposed as precious tool to improve communicating skills.
3D and 4D printing of polymeric materials for biomedical and robotics field
Design of innovative metallic alloys tailored for additive manufacturing processes
Powders production and characterization
Innovative post-processing routes
