Fab labs, the ever-evolving inventories of digital fabrication tools, is a global network of local Fab Labs with core capabilities that allow people to make (almost) anything. They’re available as community resources, where “makers” have an open access to make, and share, their awesome projects.
Such a global network comes together every year, where international leaders in the fields of science and technology, major international manufacturing companies and members of the more than 1,200 worldwide Fabs Labs gather to share, discuss, collaborate and create communities around the different local and global interests regarding digital manufacturing, innovation, and technology.
And on the 5th of August, 2017, Egypt (represented by Fab Lab Egypt and Fab Lab New Cairo) has won the Fab’13th pitch in Chile, against Canada, UAE, and China, to host the international conference Fab’15 in 2019. The event has been running for 14 years, hosted previously in South Africa, USA, India, Holland, Peru, New Zealand, Japan, China, Chile, and this year (2018) in France.
