EDIH Title

European Digital Innovation Hub Boosting Additive Manufacturing through Digital Services

Geographical scope

Region of Västra Götaland



AM-EDIH is a European Digital Innovation Hub providing world-class services for boosting industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing ("AM") through digitalisation and thereby increasing sustainability and competitiveness of European manufacturing industry. The target clients of AM-EDIH, to which digital AM services will be provided, are 1) SMEs and small mid-caps being i) manufacturers, ii) product developers and iii) solution providers for the new value chains connected to the rapid digitalization of industry, among large enterprises and 2) Public healthcare sector and particularly university hospitals where advanced healthcare services are offered using AM. AM-EDIH has its basis in Western Sweden (Region of VästraGötaland, "RVG") where manufacturing industry constitutes almost half of the region's economy and where research and innovation, e.g. at Chalmers University of Technology ("Chalmers") and Research Institutes of Sweden ("RISE"), is heavily focused on digital manufacturing, and specifically so on digital AM. Moreover, the region's University Hospital (Sahlgrenska) is one of Sweden’s largest hospitals and a hub for strong innovation and clinic research activities, also in AM, in close and broad cooperation with academia, industry and patients. AM-EDIH will focus on developing RVG into a world-leading region for digital AM that can inspire and support other regions in Europe to adopt digital AM to increase sustainability and competitiveness. Through the Swedish regional network of 21 Industrial Development Centres it will also reach the target groups nation-wide. For AM-EDIH it will be very important to network with other EDIHs and EEN to reach other European regions and clients and exchange knowledge, competence, and good practises of digitalisation and thereby contribute to the digital transformation of the European manufacturing industry. RVG, being the 11th most innovative region in Europe (2021), has excellent conditions for achieving this.
