Project DIGINOVA: Biomedical Applications for Digital Fabrication Event

On Wednesday 6th November 2013 at CPI’s National Printable Electronics Centre, CPI will be running an event focused around Project DIGINOVA: Biomedical Applications for Digital Fabrication.

Attendees will include project partners from across Europe covering academia, research institutes and industry. Participants will have the opportunity to gain innovative insights on digital fabrication in Europe and its potential applications in the biomedical field. Delegates will have an opportunity to see demonstrators of the technology and to tour CPI’s National Printable Electronics Centre.

The purpose of the DIGINOVA project is to determine the current status of Digital Fabrication in Europe and assess and promote its potential for the future of materials research and manufacturing. The project is mapping key material innovation and application domains, as well as identifying key technology challenges and new business opportunities. DIGINOVA identifies and connects main stakeholders through the establishment of innovation networks and identifies feasible routes to commercialisation.
