The 3D Pioneers Challenge is looking for the pioneers and innovators who are resiliently shaping a sustainable tomorrow. Pushing boundaries.
The 3DPC was announced for the eighth time as part of the Rapid.Tech 3D, the trendsetting trade-fair event of the AM scene and creative meeting place for start-ups as well as experts and industry leaders in additive manufacturing.
Advanced Technologies to enable a sustainable tomorrow.
Epic challenges surround us demanding social, ecological, economic and personal change. In those times it’s creative pioneers who take a conscious, deep breath to rethink the status quo. Driven by a mindset that reflects, settles, and sorts everything, they focus on holistic solutions for a better now and tomorrow. Let’s be pioneers. Be resilient.
We do need to converge and generate bridges focusing a sustainable transfer of that approach. Advanced technologies such as digital tools and additive manufacturing are key roles that enable transformation and innovation.
The 3DPC2023 invites pioneers of all generations with this mindset to use the platform. Present your concepts, projects or new business models to push the boundaries.
