    DOC-3D-Ceram is an innovative training network that consists of 6 academic, 1 non-profit association and 7 industry (Large companies and SME) participants focused on CERAMICS 3D PRINTING or Ceramics Additive manufacturing applied on medical and aerospace fields. The penetration of 3D-printing processes in the ceramics industry remains low. Technology achievements remain to be done, but research activities remain low. Indeed the additive manufacturing community addresses mostly metallic or polymeric materials, and the ceramics industry lacks skilled researchers likely to exploit academic proofs of concepts to innovations. Thus training is a key challenge to support innovation in the ceramics industry and for the European competitiveness. That is why a European Training Network is the most relevant to the challenge. The training programme created for this project will be sustained after the project by associative networking. Certification and qualification evaluation of early stage researcher on this topic will be created by the consortium with the methodologies developed by NPO partner. The research methodology will be based on multi-disciplinary and inter-sectorial collaborations among the project participants. The work packages will solve each VALUE CHAIN needs: (i) Feedstock, (ii) Printer, (iii) Product, (iv) Standardisation. The expected innovations are: (i) Multi-structured and tailored materials feedstocks (ii) Printer specially designed for ceramics (iii) innovative-design ceramics products (iv) standardisation actions. From the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) point of view DOC-3D-Ceram will bridges “the Valley of death” (TRL 3 to 7) from science TRL to commercial TRL. The expected successful outcomes require a joint effort from academic and industry facilitated by the synergetic work plan proposed.

    Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies and overall numerical fabrication methods have been recognized by stakeholders as the next industrial revolution bringing customers’ needs and suppliers’ offers closer. It cannot be dissociated to the present trends in increased virtualization, cloud approaches and collaborative developments (i.e. sharing of resources). AM is likely to be one good option paving the way to Europe re-industrialization and increased competitiveness. AMITIE will reinforce European capacities in the AM field applied to ceramic-based products. Through its extensive programme of transnational and intersectoral secondments, AMITIE will promote fast technology transfer and enable as well training of AM experts from upstream research down to more technical issues. This will provide Europe with specialists of generic skills having a great potential of knowledge-based careers considering present growing needs for AM industry development. To do that, AMITIE brings together leading academic and industrial European players in the fields of materials science/processes, materials characterizations, AM technologies and associated numerical simulations, applied to the fabrication of functional and/or structural ceramic-based materials for energy/transport, and ICTs applications, as well as biomaterials. Those players will develop a new concept of smart factory for the future based on 3D AM technologies (i.e. powder bed methods, robocasting, inkjet printing, stereolithography, etc.) and their possible hybridization together or with subtractive technologies (e.g. laser machining). It will allow for the production of parts whose dimensions, shapes, functionality and assembly strategies may be tailored to address today’s key technological issues of the fabrication of high added value objects following a fully-combinatorial route. This is expected to lead to a new paradigm for production of multiscale, multimaterial and multifunctional components and systems
