The transformative power of co-creation observed through the lens of Additive Manufacturing – Presented by Kristel Van den Bergh, Materialise, at the 3D Medtech Printing Conference, February 01, 2017, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Additive manufacturing presents many exciting opportunities for the Medtech and wearables space, from rapid prototyping to final certified production. However, this raises questions with regards to product development:

  • How can we make the most of 3DP opportunities to create the greatest value?
  • How to ensure companies build innovations that are relevant for its customers and welcomed by the stakeholders in the ecosystem?
  • How do these innovations transform the way professionals interact with their customers?
  • How will supply chains for digitally manufactured applications change?

Through practical case studies from the medical and wearables industries, we will demonstrate the value of open innovation thinking where meaningful applications emerge through a guided co-collaborative process.
