CEN Workshop on 'Processes for ink-based mono and multi-material fabrication of additive manufactured implants'

This workshop is motivated by the currently ongoing Horizon 2020 INKplant project (INK-BASED HYBRID MULTIMATERIAL FABRICATION OF NEXT GENERATION IMPLANTS), whose general objective is the future incorporation of additive manufactured scaffolds into the daily routine of medical practice, so that the whole society benefits from personalized regenerative therapies.

For this global aim INKplant sets the following overall objectives:

to develop innovative manufacturing technologies for affordable patient-specific scaffolds; to create a workflow for the design optimization of 3D printed scaffolds; to demonstrate the INKplant approach in two different Use Cases (weight-bearing joints and dental implants & oral pathologies); to assure the future translation of the technology to clinical application, via European regulatory approval and commercialisation.


The workshop will create three CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreements (CWAs) with the proposed titles:

  1. CWA 1. Library of scaffolds and samples
  2. CWA 2. Workflow from medical images towards optimal personalized scaffolds
  3. CWA 3. Methods for the process control of high-resolution mono- and multimaterial additive manufacturing.


The secretariat is held by UNE, the Spanish Standardization Body, Ms Ana Benedicto Cordoba.


The kick-off meeting will be held on Tuesday, 5th December 2023, from 08:30 – 11:00 CET as a virtual meeting.


The Workshop participation will be open to all interested parties. Interested parties are kindly requested to submit comments on the draft Project Plan via the 'Commenting form' (see below) until 30 November 2023 and to register to the workshop by completing the 'registration form' (see below) and sending it by an email to the workshop secretary Ms Ana Benedicto Cordoba.
