Let’s talk about open innovation at Fab City Hub Voices

In the last couple of years I’ve been working on CENTRINNO, an EU-funded project which we kicked-off at BASE. Since then we’ve been organising action on the Milan pilot with the aim of establishing an open manufacturing programme that will increase the cross-fertilization between makers, designers, artisans, SMEs and institutions with the objective to support digital innovation processes.

The idea behind the pilot is to create a new culture of manufacturing focused on shorter product cycles, as well as providing new assets, resources and circular economy networks mainly in the area of fashion and design.

During Milan Design Week 2021 we experimented the local use of left-overs of plastic filament (PLA) from 3d printing processes together with a local digital manufacturing and design lab called Superforma and a designer in residence Vicente Varella.

We then presented the action during Fab City Hub Voices, a series of webinars to learn about the challenges involved in activating such projects, but also to understand all the opportunities they open up for the local innovation ecosystem.

In the video I’m with Mattia and Vicente to share the details of the experience!
