13th – 17th of November 2023


The 3d.FAB Academy is a project initiated by the innovative 3d.FAB technological platform in 2020 to promote access to training in the field of additive manufacturing used in many market sectors such as health, transport, building or luxury.

Who: for professionals in the private or public sector, regardless of their area of ​​competence, who wish to acquire or enrich their knowledge and know-how on advanced technologies in 3D bio-printing.

What: 1 full week structured around one main theme, Bio-Printing. The content includes a full-fledged training organized in theoretical courses and practical work on the latest generation equipments.

Objectives: to understand and learn different 3D bio-printing technologies, master the softwares, recognize biomaterial issues and develop expertise and reflection on the potential applications of 3D bio-printing.
