Project Aladdin11 January 2021
The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), has become part of an EU consortium for a H2020 Erasmus+ grant called ALADDIN. This is an ERASMUS + project tackling the integration of additive manufacturing in the health sector.
ALADDIN aims to contribute to the integration of Additive Manufacturing (AM) by developing a specific training programme on AM in Hospitals for two key players identified in the European value chain on AM medical devices AS health professionals working in hospitals (doctors, surgeons, etc.) and engineering students for their future incorporation into the health sector.
The main outputs of the project will be a training methodology and teaching guide, training contents, E-learning platform, and pilot training activities.
This project brings together six European organisations led by AIMPLAS (Technological Institute of Plastics, Spain) and includes the AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, UK), ITEMAS (Medical technology Innovation Platform-Spain) HIHI (Health Innovation Hub Ireland), HOPE (European Hospital and Healthcare Federation) and Jobs@skills (Belgian organisation specialised in training programs creation).
