The 4th edition of the 3D Bioprinting Conference will take place on January 31, 2017, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.
The previous edition of the conference was held on January 26th, 2016, at MECC Maastricht, in The Netherlands.
The 3D Bioprinting Conference was part of the 3D Medical Expo. The event included a two-day exhibition and three other conferences besides the 3D Bioprinting:
The event was successful, attracting over 700 international attendees, speakers, exhibitors and visitors, providing great intellectual and social interaction for the participants.
International leading speakers from renowned companies and institutions such as Cartilage Engineering + Regeneration Laboratory, ETH Zürich, Heriot Watt University, BioBots, University of Nottingham, University of Lyon, Lützeler Klümper Rechtsanwälte,Ourobotics, University of Liège, Regemat3D and CANTER – Center for Applied Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine shared their knowledge and views on 3D Bioprinting topics.

Fast facts about the importance of 3D Bioprinting
3D printing is becoming increasingly implemented in the operating room, with surgeons turning to the technology to create tailor-made implants for their patients. Several uses of the technology are already generating revenue as viable medical businesses, like dental applications, prosthetics and hearing devices.
The most disruptive application of 3D printing in the medical world might be bioprinting – the production of human organs for transplant or for body on a chip use. The technology involves the creation of replacement tissues and organs that are printed layer-by-layer into a three-dimensional structure.
This rapidly developing market raises many questions. Which technologies are developed yet? What are the costs of the production of bioprinted tissues and organs? Which effects does tissue engineering cause? Which markets are influenced by the innovative 3D printing technologies? And how quickly can those customized products be manufactured? The 3D Bioprinting Conference gives answers to these kinds of questions.
