IDEA Consult develops solutions to address some COVID-19 related challenges

IDEA Consult is actively co-developing solutions to address some Covid-19 related industrial challenges.

Together with key partners, we have created and launched an EU-wide online environment where healthcare organisations (or other companies) experiencing supply chain problems are able to find 3D printing production facilities that can address their needs!

Already more than 40 3DP-production centres have registered.

You can find more information about the tool and the project on

3DP PAN EU is an EU-wide web-based matchmaking tool connecting supply and demand in the field of 3D printing. The current health crisis caused by the Covid-19 virus leads a number of companies and organisations – medical and other – to experience supply chain problems while searching for specific parts or components. 3DP PAN EU is here to offer its support and open up the platform.

3DP PAN EU is a platform originally designed to map 3DP test and demonstration facilities in the EU, describing in detail the equipment and services that are available for use by third parties. This transparent offer is promoted towards European SMEs, in order to facilitate a matchmaking resulting in collaborative projects bringing 3DP innovation faster to the market.

3DP PAN EU now extends its scope to allow a matchmaking between 3DP production facilities and companies/organisations in need.

The project consortium consists of Brainport Development, IDEA Consult, ART-ER, CIVITTA and Asterion Europe. 3DP PAN EU is a European Parliament pilot action managed by the European Commission.
