The 3D Pioneers Challenge is looking for the pioneers and innovators who are resiliently shaping a sustainable tomorrow. Pushing boundaries.
It will be announced for the eighth time as part of Rapid.Tech 3D , (Messe Erfurt, 9-11 May 2023).
Advanced Technologies to enable a sustainable tomorrow.
Epic challenges surround us demanding social, ecological, economic and personal change. In those times it’s creative pioneers who take a conscious, deep breath to rethink the status quo. Driven by a mindset that reflects, settles, and sorts everything, they focus on holistic solutions for a better now and tomorrow. Let’s be pioneers. Be resilient.
We do need to converge and generate bridges focusing a sustainable transfer of that approach. Advanced technologies such as digital tools and additive manufacturing are key roles that enable transformation and innovation.
The 3DPC2023 invites pioneers of all generations with this mindset to use the platform. Present your concepts, projects or new business models to push the boundaries.
Prize money of EUR 35.000 kindly supported by the Thuringian Ministry of Economic Affairs Science and Digital Society .
