The conference was arranged by the research and innovation
project +Project, supported by the EU Regional Development Fund.
The project is led by Sliperiet at Umeå University in collaboration
with other research and industry partners. The focus is on showing
the possibilities of digital production and 3D printing of
biomaterials, with the aim of achieving a sustainable production of
future homes. Within the project, which is now in its final phase,
small businesses, entrepreneurs and innovators have been given the
opportunity to experiment, discuss and develop ideas and business
plans together with researchers in the above-mentioned areas.
