Networks, Clusters and Events

There are several AM networks in Germany that provide great opportunity for exchange between member companies, help in identifying research partners as well as representing common interests to policymakers.

Clusters and Networks

The Mobility/Medical Goes Additive (MGA) network based in Berlin is the largest AM network with more than 140 international member companies and scientific institutions. To enhance the development of an AM ecosystem in Berlin, the Berlin Senate has established the AMBER (Additive Manufacturing Berlin-Brandenburg) regional cluster and the association “Verband 3D Druck e.V.” is also located in Berlin.

The Agent3D network in Dresden has more than 100 members, including leading research institutes, industry as well as small and medium sized companies.

Representatives of AUDI AG, EOS, GE Additive, Linde, MTU Aero Engines, Oerlikonm and Siemens as well as TUM have agreed to found the "Bavarian AM Cluster" (BAMC) as a non-profit association in 2023. The "Additive Manufacturing Coordination Office" at Bayern Innovativ acts as a hub to network all competence providers and newcomers in additive manufacturing and to further develop the Bavarian AM ecosystem. In the north of Germany investors find networks like Additive Manufacturing Nordwest e.V. or 3D-Druck Nord. 

Trade Shows & Conferences

Trade shows and conferences are also an essential part of successful networking to find new clients and business partners. 

Germany also hosts formnext, the leading trade show for additive manufacturing worldwide (800 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors). 

The AM Forum in Berlin and the AM Medical Days attract around 2,000 guests annually. There are also several smaller events like the Rapid Prototyping Symposium in Hamburg, Fraunhofer DDMC in Berlin as well as research institutes like IAPT in Hamburg and ACAM in Aachen who organize smaller events.
