On the road for the production of tomorrow. We want to bring digital production technology to life in the Hamburg metropolitan region! Starting in spring 2023, we will be on the road in the region with a mobile, open workspace. The OpenLab Mobile gives many people access to machines and knowledge.
We are developing a digital infrastructure that enables fab cities and regions to bundle the knowledge generated in global knowledge networks in the sense of commons-based peer production, and not only to produce locally in line with demand.
In order to bundle and expand startup support for startups from science in a structured manner, universities and research institutions from the Hamburg metropolitan region have joined forces with institutions from business and politics in the project "Startup Port - Knowledge-based Entrepreneurship in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region".
The main objective of the Digital4jobs project and related research activities is to empirically investigate how the concepts of Open Labs and Open Source Appropriate Technologies [OSAT] can contribute to technological empowerment of local people and bottom-up development of the economy.
