European Patent Office to release new study on trends in AM

July 9, 2020

The European Patent Office (EPO), headquartered in Munich, Germany, will host an online launch for its new study ‘Patents and Additive Manufacturing – Trends in 3D printing technologies’ on July 13, 2020, at 09:00 AM BST (10:00 AM CET).

The launch will be preceded by a panel discussion between António Campinos, president of the EPO, and Christian Archambeau, Executive Director of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), followed by a presentation of the study by Yann Ménière, the EPO’s Chief Economist.

Additive Manufacturing is one of the most dynamic technologies reshaping traditional manufacturing and opening up new possibilities across all sectors, especially in the field of medical technologies to support COVID-19 patients, explains the EPO. Its study charts the latest trends, revealing a surge of innovation in AM across multiple industry areas, and identifies emerging leaders in this field. It is also reported to show that Europe is currently a global hub for innovation in Additive Manufacturing.

The study forms part of a four-day digital conference organised jointly by the EPO and the EUIPO on Addiitve Manufacturing and its impact on intellectual property, which takes place online from July 13–16, 2020. 

Further information and registration details are available via the event website.
