3D printing, a supercomputer and hydrogen: three examples of how research in Germany is achieving new dimensions.
Bayreuth is world-famous for its Wagner Festival, but is also outstanding in the area of research. In 2020, the university of this city in the Franconian region became home to a research centre that is unique in Germany: the Campus Additive.Innovationen (CA.I) pursues interdisciplinary research into 3D printing.
The materials, technologies, business models and applications of additive manufacturing are explored from a variety of perspectives, and the technology’s impact on society – also on an international level – is studied. Researchers from 26 of the university’s departments and from four non-university research institutions are working together on innovative solutions.
