MAKE-IT Final Event

The Final Event

After two years of work, the MAKE-IT project has now reached its end. During these two years, the MAKE-IT partners produced several deliverables, scientific publications, software, online contents and much more, and presented and discussed the project in several workshops, meetings and events. It is now time to discuss with stakeholders the final results of the project and talk about their future in a final event!

On January 18th 2018 we will meet in Brussels for the MAKE-IT final event, where we will discuss the results of the project, the future of the Maker movement and launch the book that summarizes the MAKE-IT project and that will be available online on this website.


During the event MAKE-IT partners and external stakeholders will discuss not only the results of the project, but will also discuss the Maker movement in general, how it is disruptive and how to bring more participants to it, and especially stakeholders who are not makers. There will be also posters and networking sessions. Here below the schedule with the confirmed speakers:
