Innovation Symposium: Additive Manufacturing

Patient-customized medical technology offers unique advantages compared to mass-produced items. The Innovation Symposium at Swiss Medtech Expo in Lucerne is where you will learn how additive manufacturing processes find increasing application in medical technology.

The Innovation Symposium conveys expert knowledge – gained from practice for use in practice. On Tuesday, 10 September 2019 experts will be speaking from 10:00 to 11:30 am about the background and projects currently underway in the field of "Patient-specific, additive manufactured products".
