Continuous fiber 3D printing company Anisoprint has announced an interesting partnership with Bremen-based Jacobs University. Founded in 2001, Jacobs University is a private, English-language campus university which is part of the global Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT) ecosystem. Together, both organizations will foster research, education and ensure technology transfer via the establishment of an on-campus composite 3D printing ecosystem.
There is a lot to learn about the proprietary Continuous Fiber Coextrusion (CFC) technology, and a research environment centered around this proprietary technology will not only benefit engineers who are currently being trained at Jacobs University, it will also benefit the Anisoprint team that will benefit from the expertise of academics.
This means that the Luxembourg based hardware start-up will relocate its research and development (R&D) team to Bremen in order to set up a lab with dedicated equipment on the campus of Jacobs University.
Remember, as said in a conversation between 3D ADEPT Media and Boeing’s Melissa Orme, “it’s important that academicians are tied into the equation so that the research they perform drives toward a solution to a problem encountered by the end user”.
“This agreement marks the beginning of a long-term collaboration in research, teaching, and knowledge transfer in a highly innovative and disruptive technology environment”, said Jacobs University President Professor Fabio Pammolli. “It is a milestone in the path of Jacobs University in its ambition to become one of the Top 15 global young universities with a focus in key areas such as Data Science for Business, Quantum Computing and Technologies, Advanced Materials, and Modeling of Complex Systems. Additionally to the educational benefits, it brings great value to the whole economic area of Bremen.”
The collaboration will facilitate cross-learning, knowledge sharing, and best practice exchange in multiple research fields. Jacobs University and SIT students will get the opportunity to explore educational resources, participate in training programs and experiment with cutting edge 3D printing technology through access to the lab. With Anisoprint hosting different thesis projects and internships, students will also benefit from new career opportunities within a fast growing technology area, a press release from Anisoprint confirms.
Commenting on the agreement, Fedor Antonov, CEO at Anisoprint, said: “Our goal has always been to bring the cutting edge of research to the market. The City of Bremen is a globally well-known hotspot for aerospace and polymer science. We’re at the right place and the right time. Becoming a part of Jacobs University`s excellent research ecosystem will catalyze our future research activities.”
