Maastricht University School of Business and Economics invites alumni, business professionals, SBE students and staff for an interactive workshop on the topic of hosted by 3D Maastricht BV. This workshop is one of the activities organised during the International Case Competition @ Maastricht (ICC@M).

3D printing is a disruptive technology that destructs and reshapes the business context for many companies. 3D printing is therefore an enabling technology for innovation in the manufacturing industry and for business model innovation. It is expected that 3D will shake up almost all branches of the manufacturing industry and consumer markets. Every week new designs open up new markets and more industries embrace 3D technology. In this workshop we shall address potential areas that will be affected by 3D printing technologies and how the local industrial community of the Maastricht area more in particular will be affected by it.
In this interactive workshop we shall deal with issues at both the strategic and the tactical level of these developments. For instance:

  • how valorisation opportunities of 3D technologies can be seized, what is required in terms of business climate
  • how the symbiosis of technological and business innovation will change the level playing field
  • which product-market combinations and business models will be in the front seat (and why)
  • who in retail business will be serving as game changers and how will they use their product portfolio

Interested to find out more about the changing business context resulting from 3D printing in the Maastricht region and to brainstorm with others on these developments? Then register now for this unique workshop.
