BLOXHUB Mornings event 28/10: Fablabs, sharing and local production
Next BLOXHUB Mornings event takes place on October 28th, 8-10AM
Meet our colleague and co-founder of UNDERBROEN, Mikkel Christian Knudsen Holst, to a talk about how open innovation, hardware and digital tools foster new modes of local and urban production.
More about the event
In recent decades we have seen massive outsourcing of production and manufacturing to countries like China and India. As a result many businesses in Denmark and elsewhere have shifted their focus towards only keeping development and innovation activities local. Today, however, we see an emerging shift. The wave of new technologies such as 3D printing and other digital manufacturing technologies, as well as undercurrents such as open source, sharing economy and co-creation, empowers innovators such as architects, designers and makers to manufacture locally through these new shared resources. Are these new currents just another buzz, or is it truly a manufacturing revolution as it is often labelled? And, what is the unique Danish take on it?
