Meet the founders of the firsts Fab City Hubs on-the-making in Europe!

 

Fab City Hub Voices is a series of webinars to learn about the challenges involved in activating productive and creative hubs, but also to understand all the opportunities they open up for the local innovation ecosystem.

 

After getting to know some of the references in Europe, we continue with new sessions with which we aim to improve understanding of what a Fab City Hub is, and how it could be implemented. To do this we will talk directly with the protagonists of the nine pilot projects being implemented in nine cities as part of the European consortium CENTRINNO.

 

Through these meetings we aim to highlight the difficulties and challenges faced by the promoters of these spaces, but also the progress they propose for the territorial ecosystem along 5 main lines: Circular Economy, Social Inclusion, Vocational Training and Heritage.
