The IMS Project Clustering Platform facilitates on-going projects to share knowledge, provide broader solutions in less time, reduce research costs, and expand networks through building international coalitions to combine and coordinate project research activities. IMS selects a member region to lead each cluster, and the European Union volunteered to shepherd the Additive Manufacturing Project Cluster. Held in conjunction with the IMS World Manufacturing Forum, the workshop took place 2 May 2016 in Barcelona, Spain.

To start the process, the European Commission found seventeen on-going projects willing to share exploitable results with other IMS regions at a workshop. IMS searched its network to find twenty two projects and industrial partners from Mexico (8), South Africa (10), and the United States (4) that expressed interest in the programme and would also offer exploitable results to share. Due to the high level of interest, the Additive Manufacturing theme divided into three subthemes; metals, polymer-ceramics-biomaterials, and generic technologies. Through the IMS network, the thirty nine projects shared their exploitable results and respective TRL levels with each other. Six clusters were formed as a result of the workshop collaborative process. Three were formed in the metals session, one in the polymers session, and two in the generic technologies session. One outcome of the workshop was to promote continued follow up meetings of the individual clusters by the appointed cluster champions. The Oxigen project has continued interest with the metals clustering activity.
