The new digital manufacturing entities in the relationship with the territory. Opportunities and challenges
As a result of spontaneous movements of aggregation that are taking place with the aim of reacting to the economic stagnation and expressing innovative ideas through the “ancient” attitude of doing, a map of people and places is being naturally established within the region that, starting from the use of new digital technologies, could provide an alternative hypothesis to the traditional ways of production and organization of work.
The Mak-ER network aims to systematize the best energies and aspirations that are emerging here, combining the organizational flexibility of individual members together with a critical mass able to making them identifiable, believable towards the production environment and able to participate in large-scale strategic projects.
The workshop aims to present practical case studies of digital fabrication stories, starting from Mak-ER network members, and to launch a reflection on the opportunities for interaction between these places and the other regional stakeholder: public administrations, companies, schools and research centers.
