Tai­wan in­sti­tutes col­lab­o­rate for 3D print­ing pro­gramme

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - ACADEMICS NEWS -

Tai­wan’s Na­tional Ap­plied Re­search Labs (NAR Labs) and China Med­i­cal Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal (CMUH) have come to­gether to es­tab­lish a strate­gic part­ner­ship with the Na­tional Ad­di­tive Man­u­fac­tur­ing In­no­va­tion Clus­ter (NAMIC) in Singapore. An in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion sign­ing cer­e­mony was held re­cently where the par­ties jointly an­nounced that they will col­lab­o­rate on a range of 3D print­ing ini­tia­tives fo­cused on bio-med­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions. Singapore had an­nounced plans in 2013 to in­vest S$500 mil­lion ($380 mil­lion) in 3D print­ing un­der a Fu­ture of Man­u­fac­tur­ing scheme. NAMIC is a na­tional pro­gramme ini­tia­tive in Singapore, led by NTUi­tive, the In­no­va­tion and En­ter­prise Com­pany of Nanyang Tech­no­log­i­cal Uni­ver­sity (NTU), to trans­late up­stream 3D print­ing re­search in uni­ver­si­ties and In­sti­tute of Higher Learn­ings (IHLs) into down­stream com­mer­cial ap­pli­ca­tions, as well as lower bar­ri­ers for com­pa­nies to in­cor­po­rate ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nolo­gies into their core busi­nesses.
