Pitch your idea and I-Form, the SFI Research Centre for Advanced Manufacturing, will turn the winning idea for sustainability into 3D printed reality.
Shape the Future is a competition open to all who have an idea to help build a sustainable future. The competition is looking for makers to show how 3D printing can help the planet. Whether it’s an idea for a new
product, a new use for an old product, or simply replacing a missing a part to an engine, vintage car or old piece of kit. How can 3D printing help us reduce waste, and find new uses for old materials?
The competition is open to anyone resident in the Republic of Ireland who has an idea to help create a more sustainable future. Entries can be from individuals or teams. ( However people working in or studying 3D printing full time are excluded from entering.)
Each shortlisted entrant will be teamed up with an I-Form researcher and their idea will be quizzed and voted on by Irish school students and the public. Then I-Form, the SFI Research Centre for Advanced Manufacturing, will turn the winning idea for sustainability into 3D printed reality.
Entries close Monday 30th September at 5pm. For more visit the link below.
