Repair 3D - Kick off meeting

The REPAIR3D Kick-off Meeting took place in Bologna on the 12th and 13th February 2019, at the UNAHOTELS Bologna Fiera (Project Title: Recycling and Repurposing of Plastic Waste for Advanced 3D Printing Applications, call identifier: H2020-NMBP-ST-IND-2018, Grant Agreement: n° 814588).

The project, which has 18 partners from 6 EU countries, is coordinated by Isella Vicini, Director of the European Funding Division of Warrant Hub S.p.A., Prof. Costas Charitidis from the National Technical University of Athens is in charge of the scientific coordination and Dr. Bojan Boskovic from Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology Ltd. is in charge of the project exploitation.

The Project Officer, Dr Achilleas Stalios, from the European Commission was present at the Kick-off Meeting.

The objective of the project, which will have a duration of 49 months and an EU contribution of 5.998.832 €, is the development of innovative reclamation and repurposing routes for end-of-life plastic and carbon fibre reinforced polymer components. This will be achieved by employing advanced nanotechnology solutions, Additive Manufacturing and recycled resources, to produce high added value 3D printed products with advanced functionalities.
