GE Additive’s education programme open to funding applications

January 9, 2017

GE has announced that it is now accepting applications from educational establishments for the GE Additive Education Programme (AEP). GE has previously stated that it plans to invest $10 million over the next five years in two educational programmes, with the aim of developing pipelines of future talent in Additive Manufacturing.

The company hopes that enabling educational institutions to provide access to AM technology will help accelerate the adoption of Additive Manufacturing worldwide. “We want to build an ecosystem for Additive Manufacturing across multiple industries,” stated Mohammad Ehteshami, Vice President of GE Additive. “GE is committed to this technology for the long-term.”

GE plans to invest $2 million over two years to subsidise desktop polymer printers for primary and secondary schools around the world. It will also invest $8 million over five years to subsidise up to 50 metal AM machines for colleges and universities around the world. Priority will be given to institutions with curriculum and/or research underway in the area of Additive Manufacturing.

Applications for initial selections in both programmes will be accepted until February 28, 2017. It was stated that further applications will be accepted in 2018.
