Implementation: Organizational and Business Aspects
In this work package we conduct research and explore issues concerning implementation of 3D printed applications in healthcare and life sciences. We focus on different aspects that could either hinder or facilitate implementation such as organizational aspects, individual aspects, system level aspects, and societal aspects. Our studies cover different clinical areas such as dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopedics, and cardiology and life science industry in general (medical devices and medicines). Both Swedish and global context is addressed. We are also interested to understand how complex new collaborations to promote 3D printing that we label as multisectoral partnerships emerge and evolve. Although the focus is on life sciences we are also interested to compare 3D printing in life sciences to other areas where 3D printing is being adopter in order to receive a more complete understanding of 3D printing in life sciences.
