The Ångström Initiative on Additive Manufacturing

The Ångström initiative on additive manufacturing unites the different research efforts, and the education connected to additive manufacturing at the faculty of science and technology at Uppsala university. The initiative aims to contribute with research, education and competence for academia, industry and society in order to reach the full potential of additive manufacturing


The initative organises seminars on AM-related topics, which are open for all interested.

Planned and past seminars

Research projects

There are AM-related research at the departments for chemistry, engineering sciences, and physics. These range from materials design to devlopment of new cutting edge AM equipment, and have applications ranging from life sciences to the metal industry.

The research is funded from several sources, and present projects include the Vinnova comptence centre "AddLife - additive manufacturing for life sciences", and "Additive manufacturing – development of processes and materials" financed by the Swedish foundation for strategic research (SSF)
