The Third Issue of the 3DLife Newsletter

The third Issue of the 3DLife biannual electronic Newsletter is now available for download! Issue #3 as well as all other issues of the newsletter can be found at the 3DLife website.

The Newsletter is an instrument for regular exchange of information among the 3DLife Network of Excellence (NoE) members and the research community at large.

The Newsletter is a biannual electronic publication but will be also printed and disseminated in the various 3DLife project events. Website users have the possibility to subscribe to the Newsletter and automatically receive each issue in their mailbox.
