Successfully closing the first year of the XaRFA with the publication of the 2023 Report

Barcelona, January 31, 2024.

The XaRFA, under the coordination of CIM UPC (technological center of reference in advanced manufacturing), presents the results and progress achieved in the first year of activity in the Annual Report 2023. With 28 research groups from 14 Catalan entities, the XaRFA has established itself as a key player in the promotion of additive manufacturing in Catalonia.

Granted by Agaur with the Aid for R+D+I networks 2021 to carry out valorisation and transfer programs of research results in 3D printing in the Catalan fabric; the XaRFA is an instrument from which collaboration is promoted between various research groups and with companies from economic sectors, which, due to the themes of their research, have common challenges and objectives of economic and social interest.

Its program of actions is based, during the first 3 years, on improving and promoting the valorization, transfer and internationalization of research around additive manufacturing in the production system with the main objective of incubating the creation of up to 12 technological spin-offs.

From the beginning, the XaRFA and CIM UPC have been institutionally committed to the valorization and technological transfer. This commitment over time is reflected in this report through the results obtained during the first year of activity.
