      • which file formats are most promising with respect to user acceptance and extensibility
      • which formats enable connectivity to adjacent stages
    • Connectivity of AM machines
      • which connections do AM machines need to connect to industrial shop floor environments
      • which requirements does additive manufacturing
      • which protocols need to be implemented to integrate AM machines into production environments
  • Skills and Education for AM processes (AM-Motion)
    • which results from the AM Motion surveys can be used to drive future skills development, a strategic vision for AM
    • which level of education needs to be addressed today to avoid shortages in skilled personnel in the near future, skills in AMable, ADMIRE and CLLAIM
