Experts in the field of tech development gathered at the annual forum, Katara-tech, in Doha recently, discussing the latest updates in 3D printing and its uses in different industries.

Katara – the Cultural Village general manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti opened the forum and honoured the participants, as well as the Qatari inventors who won 14 medals in the 11th international inventions exhibition in the Middle East in Kuwait, held in January.

Several tech specialists and technicians from Hamad Medical Corp, Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU), Ibtikar for tech solutions and Q 3D Print company introduced the best uses of such technology in education, and research and development.

Dr Younis Ait Moo, researcher at the Faculty of Science and Engineering at HBKU and a programme consultant at the European Innovation Academy, presented “Research aspects of 3D printing technology and design strategies” at the forum, explaining how they use this technology to find better methods of learning through simulations.

Dr Guillame Lanier from HMC discussed the challenges and benefits of 3D printing in prehospital care and how HMC is introducing this technology, especially in the ambulance department, to be effective and practical for the benefit of patients.

The forum aims to spread awareness on digital technologies on a large scale and make it available to all “as a key factor in the development of creative and knowledge capabilities.”

The event also serves as an avenue to learn about the latest developments in the world of information and communication technology.
