Fablab Mobile: on the way to an innovative region for all young people in Brussels

Innoviris is joining the personal fabrication movement and launching a call to all organisations that want to develop a mobile Fab Lab to create awareness of technology and innovation among young people in Brussels. Do you have an original idea and do you want to roam Brussels with a mobile space in which young people can experiment freely and learn in a playful manner? Then read on.

In its Regional Innovation Plan, the Government of the Brussels Capital Region wants to provide an answer to the growing demand for qualified personnel in the RDI sector. This strategy includes awareness campaigns and training to create awareness of the digital sector among young people in Brussels. 

The digital revolution controls young people's daily lives. Even so, only few people proactively participate in the personal fabrication movement, for instance by actually going to local Fab Labs.

The personal fabrication approach, which deals with problems from a multidisciplinary perspective, is a way to make STEM more concrete and relevant for pupils.

That is why Innoviris is launching a call for projects to set up a mobile Fab Lab in order to convert young people in Brussels into tomorrow's creators.

The Fablab Mobile project will visit schools and community centres, but it will also be present at scientific events, so as to offer all young people in the Brussels Region the opportunity to use the resources of a Fab Lab.

 
Why do we need your help?

In order to make this project a reality, we are looking for companies, non-profit organisations and research institutions that are willing to join forces to develop a concept for Fablab Mobile.

 

What do you need to do? 

Take a look on our Fablab Mobile page and submit a proposal by 16 August at the latest!
