Selected Research Projects
In the intial program of the SFA Advanced Manufacturing, the Steering Committee selected the seven most attractive and promising projects out of the submitted 18 proposals. Four projects address key challenges in the Technical Focus Area (TFA) 1 - Precision Free-Form Manufacturing, one project aims to develop new technologies and devices in Printed Electronics (TFA 2) and two projects will explore new approaches in the TFA 3 - Sustainable Digital Manufacturing and Design. The start of the selected projects and research activities is planned for the second quarter of 2017.
TFA 1 - Precision Free-Form Manufacturing
TFA 2 - Printed Electronics
TFA 3 - Sustainable Digital Manufacturing and Design
Mid 2017, the ETH Board approved an expansion of the program of the SFA Advanced Manufacturing. Two additional and complementory Technical Focus Areas (TFA) were defined: TFA 4 - Sensing Technologies and TFA 5 - Intelligent Systems and Advanced Automation. End of 2017, the Steering Committee selected four further research projects that address key challenges in these two new areas. The start of the research activities in these four projects is planned for spring 2018.
TFA 4 - Sensing Technologies
TFA 5 - Intelligent Systems and Advanced Automation
