The difference is a smarter way of working

 Insights into new and exciting 2D & 3D print technologies, and their introduction into HE institutions. Plus selective supplier exhibition.

New and emerging technologies, such as 3D printers and storefronts, are flooding the HE creative and print marketplace. It’s an exciting time to be involved in print, but as Manchester Metropolitan knows the hard way, there’s far more to introducing whizzy technologies than simply procuring the hardware and software or jumping on board with external commercial partners that promise the moon on a stick.

Time, effort and money can disappear down the plughole if you don’t know exactly how your institution will benefit from this new technology and you don’t nail down the details before purchase and implementation.

On the flip side, new technologies can open new markets, allow you to provide a wider range of services to better support teaching, learning and research, and streamline the way you do business – a smarter way of working.

Our Technology Day will be geared around learning – focusing on how we can help each other to make informed decisions.

Key presentation

Ed Keefe – MMU 3D Manager

Ed will share our partnership experience and look at the importance of:

  • developing a rationale for the use of the new technology
  • building ownership among the key participants
  • examining all budgetary considerations
