Meet the speaker: Stefanie Brickwede


As Managing Director of Deutsche Bahn's AM division, Stefanie Brickwede set up the international "Mobility goes Additive" network in 2016 with the aim of pushing industrial 3D printing into series production.

In 2019 a second branch, "Medical goes Additive", was launched. It assists Hospitals, companies and institutions throughout the medical sector to extend the use of Additive Manufacturing. Now, MGA has close to 20 working and focus groups in place hosting more than 70 meetings a year.

After graduating as an economist from the Technical University of Hanover, Stefanie started her career in the mobility sector and has since held various management and project management positions at Deutsche Bahn AG. Since 2015, Stefanie has also headed corporate-level 3D Printing at DB and is responsible for the successful introduction of Additive Manufacturing throughout the DB group. This gives her a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges users have to face.

In addition, Ms. Brickwede is the initiator of the “Women in AM” network and actively promotes women in the AM industry.
