Summer School on Additive Manufacturing 2024.

The Summer School on Additive Manufacturing by CAM² is delivered to about 30 PhD students and company representatives each year. In the 2024 edition, the Summer School was supported by the WISE Graduate School. Conducted across three sessions, it was hosted by each of the participating members of the WISE Additive Research and Technology Platform.


  • Session 1 – June 11–12, 2024: Printed Electronics. Linköping University (room K4 Kåkenhus at Campus Norrköping)
  • Session 2 – June 18–19, 2024: Polymer printing and AM of ceramics. Uppsala University (house 10 at the Ångström laboratory)
  • Session 3 – June 25–26, 2024: Metal AM Technologies. Chalmers University of Technology (Virtual Development Laboratory, Campus Johanneberg)

About the Summer School

Additive manufacturing (AM) is a manufacturing technology where a three-dimensional object is built based on 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing and formative manufacturing methodologies.

The aim of the school is to establish a basic understanding regarding AM, both as a method for novel material development and as an industrial technology for prototyping and manufacturing of advanced components across diverse sectors. The course covers an overview of seven additive manufacturing technology groups as well as a general overview of the AM manufacturing chain.
