From Big Science to Big Business

Big Science refers to fundamental and groundbreaking research that is carried out in an international context. For this research, extensive facilities are required. The construction of these facilities requires large investments and is carried out with the help of high-tech industry in the participating countries. The maintenance and operation of the research facilities also offers opportunities for large companies, but also for and small and medium-sized companies to participate. Assignments are announced via Calls for Tender, and financed from the contribution of the participating countries.


Additive Manufacturing area

3D printing from the 1990s has rapidly evolved into a full-fledged production technology for finished products. In particular, additive manufacturing technologies in metals and high-tech materials such as technical ceramics are finding concrete applications in today's precision technology. An additional theme square has been set up at the Precision Fair where suppliers of AM technology will present their applications. In the lecture programme, an entire track is dedicated to these additive technologies deployed for the manufacture of end products.
