Zoom-Meeting

Already for the 7th time, Klaus Brisch and Marco Müller-ter Jung, Deloitte Legal, together with Prof. Dr. Gerd Witt, Chair of Manufacturing Technology at the University of Duisburg-Essen, invite you to the "Forum 3D Printing and Law". Due to the well-known pandemic circumstances, the forum will for the first time take place as an online video conference, but - as usual - with the support of outstanding experts in additive manufacturing and digitization.

The first six forums “3D Printing and Law” were dedicated to specific legal issues of additive manufacturing, the factual, economic and legal requirements for business models of innovative companies in the context of this innovative technology, issues of quality assurance, know-how protection and IT security as well as liability and best practices in the context of the industrialization of 3D printing.

Central topic of this year's event, which will take place on April 22, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., is the aspect of digital transformation in the context of 3D printing. The Digital Transformation affects all industry sectors and especially manufacturers.

The 7th 3D Printing and Law Forum will explore the question of how the path to digital, intelligent AM production can succeed. Our experts will show how digitally integrated production processes can be implemented in the context of decentralized production in additive manufacturing, which economic benefits data and its analysis play, and how artificial intelligence can be meaningfully linked with additive manufacturing processes, particularly in automotive manufacturing. In addition, the changes to conventional supply and production chains in the digital transformation towards the development of so-called "smart manufacturing ecosystems" will be investigated. In this context, it is also a question of securing IP and know-how by establishing a trust chain, which involves changes to the control software of the 3D printers or to the communication network with the plant. The need to secure IP rights in additive manufacturing leads to consideration of how to meet the requirements from a legal perspective for increasing the technical protection of IP rights and maximizing digital business assets. The event will conclude by shedding light on potential solutions for addressing the challenges of serialization of 3D printing.

Please find below the program of the 7th Forum 3D Printing and Law. After each presentation, there will be ample opportunity for your questions and discussion. Feel free to send us your questions on the presentation topics in advance upon your registration or during the event, usingthe Q&A function.
