About AMagine

AMagine is an EIT Manufacturing-funded project that aims to boost additive manufacturing use in Europe by offering targeted professional education to designers and managers in the manufacturing sector. We offer professional education in the form of physical or virtual workshops and online content.

Unlike other additive manufacturing professional education offerings on the market, our workshops target specific identified needs on regional level. We achieve this by conducting interview studies with manufacturing stakeholders of the region that include the OEMs, subcontractors, additive manufacturing service providers, and additive manufacturing machinery producers. We then use state-of-the-art quantitative content analysis techniques to reliably identify the knowledge gaps that need to be filled for the companies in the region to easily implement additive manufacturing.

Our pilot countries for 2021 are Finland and Austria with more countries joining in the following years.

AMagine educational offerings

AMagine offers companies two avenues for upskilling and reskilling their employees in additive manufacturing: workshops and digital content.

The content of the workshops concerns product design and value chain aspects associated with additive manufacturing. The exact content is defined on a region-by-region basis based on the identified knowledge gaps in that region. The workshops are organized by local partners in Finland and Austria and special attention is given to their accessibility: the workshops are held in the preferred language of the region and use software that is specifically designed to be intuitive to learn.

The digital content of AMagine supports learners in getting the most out of the workshops. Because our workshops are targeted at a specific knowledge gap, a certain level of expertise is required to follow them with ease. The digital content gives the learners the necessary background information. The content is in the form of short, easy-to-absorb learning modules on the EIT Manufacturing Guided Learning Platform.


AMagine will be present at the Austrian 3D Printing Forum!

AMagine will be present at the Austrian 3D Printing Forum on 15.6.2021 together with the EIT Manufacturing project AddManu.

Please join us at the booth and see the program.
