Additive Manufacturing in Austria - Past, Present and Future
Austria was and still is an excellent breeding ground for additive manufacturing. The combination of innovation, world class science and excellent engineers has led to Austria not only being a pioneer and trailblazer in this field, but also being world market leader in some areas. Various clusters and thematic focuses have formed and various initiatives have also been launched. Thus, not only a roadmap has been developed, but also an association (www.am-austria.com) has been founded, which aims to develop Austria into one of the world's most innovative pioneers in the field of additive manufacturing, in order to leverage the enormous potential of this technology for the Austrian economy.
