Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Summer School and Training related to Consumer Best Practices and Societal impact for circularity of materials, scheduled by the 14th and 15th July 2020, has been postpone for next summer 2021 (dates to be confirmed). Repair3D Project will organise this year instead a Webinar on the 14th July (11:00 14:00 CET).
The Webinar will include a number of lectures from academic and industrial experts, related to plastic circularity and recycling, manufacturing of plastics composites using 3D Printing Technology, and the use of plastics in packaging. Specific time will be devoted to participants’ questions and for an open discussion session.
Young researchers from industry and academia, undergraduate students, and post-graduate students (Masters and Ph.D. students) are encouraged to apply. The participation is free of charge and all participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
Several Repair3D Partners will attend the largest composites-focused trade show, JEC World 2021 held on 9-11 March at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre in Paris, France. NTUA, ITENE, IRES, IRT Jules Verne, BIOG3D, EURECAT will have exhibition booths at this event.
At November 6th, 2019, NTUA was invited to participate at the first DECOAT project workshop to present Repair3D project. The workshop was organized at ECOMONDO, at International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) boot, in Rimini, Italy. After initial session regarding DECOAT project, clustering session for ‘Circular Plastics’ followed. Crowdhelix initiative, Plastics Circularity Multiplier and linked projects have been presented, namely: React, MultiCycle and Repair3D. Afterwards, the networking session followed were participants have a technical discussion on recycling of plastics, coated plastics and textiles and benefits of clustering.
On Thursday, November 7th, 2019, NTUA participated with SMARTFAN, Repair3D and DECOAT projects at the Plastics Circularity Multiplier meeting held during the ECOMONDO fair. The meeting took place at the Savoia Hotel Rimini. Representatives from participating projects had an open discussion regarding the updates of current activities, planning next actions, Website, Infographics, the first year Core event and structure for the future.
On 3 June 2019, Repair3D participated together with other twelve ongoing European Projects on Plastics Circularity to explore possible synergies in a meeting organized by Demeto project and held at the EuPC offices in Brussels. During the workshop, the participants were invited to make a brief presentation of their projects, before focusing on the common regulatory and scale-up challenges. Keti Medarova-Bergstrom, Project adviser H2020 Eco-innovation-EASME, was also present at the meeting and provided valuable input for future collaboration and synergies.
The 6th Researcher’s Night took place on Friday, September 27, 2019 at the Historical Complex of NTUA. Researcher’s Night was celebrated in more than 370 European cities with at least 1.5 million visitors. At the National Technical University of Athens, the Researcher’s Night was celebrated with the participation of more than 13,000 citizens of Athens, focusing on young people, students and students, in co-operation with the Technical Chamber of Greece and with the support of the European Commission Delegation in Greece. This year the Researchers’ Night at NTUA has been harmonized with the European Sport Week, with a special tribute on “Sport: Heritage – Innovation”.
In a one of the exhibition halls R-Nano Lab had a booth, where Repair3D leaflets were shared. Moreover, since this year’s theme was sport, one of the Repair3D demonstrators model – ski boots – where demonstrated. The 3D printed ski-boots were included in the Treasure game that took place.
