Makers Lab

Makers Lab is a technological laboratory where you can share your knowledge, your free time, your desire to do and to design in a non-formal learning context. It is a shared space, self-managed by the community of participants and supervised by a staff responsible for the laboratory.

It aims to work on initiatives, projects and the creation of networks with stakeholders interested in researching creativity, with a particular focus on social inclusion projects, promoting youth entrepreneurship and developing new skills and professionalism.

The laboratory encourages the development and exchange of skills according to horizontal interaction models, where those who teach and those who learn can experiment with a different approach to training.

In fact, it intends to increase motivation, experiences and meeting opportunities through the organization of thematic workshops, shared design moments, courses and events dedicated to new technologies and their interaction with daily life.
