3rd Campaign “What opportunities does additive manufacturing offer in the field of HealthTech?”

This campaign enables interested parties from industry, research and society to create, test and validate promising applications and product ideas based on existing and new technologies and materials. Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies offer huge potential for many sectors of the economy and related applications. In order to profit from these advantages for innovative products, production process chains must be simplified, and made cheaper.

On the ideation platform, participants can formulate their needs and ideas in order to subsequently identify potential for optimized solutions. Participants can team up and work together on solutions to present them to our experts. The best and most promising concepts receive a grant amount of between CHF 10,000.- up to CHF 25,000.-.

Campaign Timeline & Requirements

In cooperation with NTN User-Centred HealthTech, the possibilities of additive manufacturing for HealthTech applications were discussed. The potential in these applications and the research results already achieved led to the launch of the third campaign in this area.
