About the European AM Observatory

Welcome to the European AM Observatory.

The AM Observatory is putting in practice a methodology for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth of the Additive Manufacturing Sector in Europe. We provide updated information on AM skills needs shortages and mismatches and on technological trends. We monitor a broader scope of AM related initiatives, which are in demand by the labour market within the European and National landscapes.
