AB16 brings together members of the international Fab Lab Network, as well as government representatives, academic researchers and experts in the field of digital fabrication, to present, envision, discuss, and create community around digital fabrication, manufacturing, technology and innovation.
This meeting includes several events for the manufacturing community and for the general public. The community component includes a symposium with conferences about Fab Labs, digital manufacturing methods, innovative and ecological approaches, digital fabrication workshops given by the fabber community, and a Super Fab Lab, large innovative space intended for manufacturing prototypes and workshops.
