Annual Review Meeting 2020
29 January 2021, Online Meeting
Advanced Manufacturing is one of the Strategic Focus Areas (SFA) in the strategic planning of the ETH Board. The SFA Advanced Manufacturing aims to enable fundamental research in engineering science in areas where missing knowledge or technical problems are hindering Swiss companies to use advanced manufacturing technologies.
Goal of the Meeting
At the Annual Review Meetings, the Steering Committee of the Strategic Focus Area Advanced Manufacturing (SFA-AM) reviews the progress and results of the research projects as well as the measures taken by the participating institutions of the ETH Domain to build up capacity and to establish new technology platforms in the field of advanced manufacturing.
In addition, the event gives the scientific and technical community in advanced manufacturing insight into the projects and activities funded by the SFA-AM. Interested representatives from academia and industry are invited to attend the meeting to learn more about the research activities of the SFA-AM and to foster the exchange and collaboration inside the advanced manufacturing community.
The program of the Annual Review Meeting 2020 is divided into four blocks. In the first three blocks, related to the five Technical Focus Areas (TFA) of the SFA-AM, the leaders of the research projects present the results that had been achieved since the project start in 2017 and 2018, respectively. In the fourth block, the representatives of the participating ETH institutions present the planned or already realized measures to build up capacities and to establish new technology platforms in advanced manufacturing.
