When: 23rd November at 13.00 CET
CENTRINNO is launching a Focus Group series to external stakeholders to present and discuss our approaches to specific thematic challenges. The initiative has the twofold objective of engaging with important actors to receive feedback on the validation of our concept and tools, but also it aims to be an inspiration window where external stakeholders can reflect on the possible uptake or adoption of similar approaches in different contexts.
An opportunity to exchange views and discover innovative approaches on themes that are common to our jobs and professional challenges. Even more interestingly, the CENTRINNO Focus Group activities aim to be the base room to create new synergies on specific topics, or even new networks of collaboration and future project opportunities.

Circular innovation processes need physical and hybrid spaces in which productive activities are experimented from the bottom-up, based on the collaboration between different stakeholders and a democratic access to technology and knowledge. Emerging from the Fab City Global Initiative, the Fab City Hub represents an evolution of the Fab Lab, towards CENTRINNO Focus Group
Thus, the space can vary between centralized or distributed (Circumscribed space, neighbourhood or city level). It aims to implement new ways of working, living and playing in our cities driven by a critical application of design and making skills to produce energy, food and materials. It draws on the power of community to co-design situated responses to local needs and ignites global knowledge exchange at distance via networks of like-minded actors.
