In collaboration with OBOS and SINTEF, we are inviting you to an idea competition that seeks to explore new ways of using additive manufacturing in making construction processes more efficient, reducing emissions and improving the quality of living. The three winning submissions will be awarded a cash prize, as well as advisory and showcase opportunities at Oslo Innovation Week!
The construction and real estate industries account for 15 per cent of total greenhouse gas emissions in Norway. Industry productivity growth is also stagnating across a wide range of sub-sectors. Additive manufacturing provides new opportunities for producing components, modules and materials, and can contribute to significantly improving industry efficiency and reducing emissions. Do you accept the challenge, and develop a solution that could make a difference for the future of construction?
How to participate
Sign up in the form below! We accept submissions from both engineers, architects, contractors, scientists, designers and others with an interest in 3D printing. Both organisations and students from abroad can participate, but the project leader needs to represent a Norwegian organisation or educational institution. The deadline for submission is 15 September, and the winners will be announced on 30 September 2021.
Please get in touch with project managers Karine Storaker Braaten (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Nathalie Labonnote (email@example.com) if you have any questions!
The winners will be awarded cash prizes of NOK 150 000 and 80 000 respectively, while the winning student submission will be awarded NOK 20 000. All awarded submissions will also receive advisory from leading experts at SINTEF. Selected models will be showcased at our Oslo Innovation Week event at OBOS Living Lab.
