Join us to learn more about Royce national facilities in Biofabrication and 3D Printing, as well as to find out more about opportunities for access and collaboration.

Why you should attend:

During this showcase event we will set out Royce’s national facilities in Biofabrication and 3D Printing alongside opportunities to access our equipment.

Our speakers will also present the future opportunities and key challenges in order for the UK to lead in Biofabrication and 3D Printing applications for healthcare. The event will connect experts and share and advance knowledge, expertise and best practice across the UK. Above all we are seeking to foster collaboration across the industrial, academic and clinical communities for future challenges in biomedical materials research, translation and regulation.

We do hope you can join us in progressing the opportunities for these exciting technologies for applications in medicine and healthcare.
