3D-Printing Collaboration Project 3DTY - UEF funder logo

The project is funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The project is implemented by University of Oulu (coordinator), Lapland Education Centre REDU, University of Eastern Finland, Savonia University of Applied Sciences, LUT University, Tampere University of Applied Sciences and DIMECC Oy ecosystems FAMN and FAME.


The project strives to modernize the industry by bringing together actors in research, development and innovation (RDI) throughout Finland that develop and disseminate the use of large-scale 3D printing technology. The aim is to improve the local and national impact of these activities by combining close domestic cooperation with the best of global expertise. In practice, this means new business and business-driven renewal based on the development of skills and innovation. The project will achieve these objectives and contribute to the digitalization of manufacturing by supporting the transition to 3D printing as one of the digital manufacturing methods, the adoption of which will also contribute to the digitalization of other manufacturing methods. Moreover, the project will also contribute to the ”green transition” by enabling energy-efficient manufacturing with less waste. The nationwide character of the project is emphasized by the fact that the project partners and related stakeholders represent the regions of Northern Finland (University of Oulu, Rovaniemi Education Group / REDU), Eastern Finland (University of Eastern Finland, Savonia University of Applied Sciences), Southern Finland (LUT University) and Western Finland (Tampere University of Applied Sciences). Ensuring business impact are the innovation platform DIMECC Oy’s ecosystems FAMN (Finnish Advanced Manufacturing Network) and FAME (Finnish Additive Manufacturing Ecosystem).
