Workshop Fab Lab
The Fab Lab workshop will allow teams to start planning and building their prototype. FabLab managers will be present to guide you through the process. The Workshop takes place on October 7, 8 and 9, 2021.
For the composition of the teams the following elements are taken into consideration when evaluating the proposals:
- Minimum 4 people
- The participation of at least one person with a disability or illness related to your subject is mandatory.
- Multidisciplinarity (technical, social, health, economic, etc.) and diversity (gender, age, education) of the team are mandatory.
- A parent or other person may accompany a person with a disability, if necessary. The latter will then be an integral part of the team members
- If your idea indirectly concerns people with a disability, i.e. the final user will be for example a caregiver and not a person with a disability, then it is possible to deviate from the rule. You must justify your decision.
