Technology development is complex and time-consuming. It requires many years of continuous research, interdisciplinary skills and specialised infrastructure. Something that no research institution can afford by itself. SATW’s Advanced Manufacturing priority programme connects researchers from all over Switzerland – particularly young researchers. This promotes cooperation in the development of future manufacturing processes.

Through its activities and platforms, SATW gives science and industry in Switzerland an opportunity to engage in dialogue and learn from each other, launch new cooperative ventures and, as a result, shape our future together. We have been using this opportunity within the Advanced Manufacturing Research Alliance for many years and are very grateful for it.

SATW Advanced Manufacturing Research Alliance

The future of production technology lies in advanced manufacturing. However, the complex nature of this specialist field demands close cooperation between different research organisations. This is why SATW set up its Advanced Manufacturing Research Alliance. The Alliance promotes cooperation between existing research organisations, focusing particularly on additive manufacturing processes and Industry 4.0.
