The University of Bordeaux has just opened its first #FabLab in the Institute of Technology.
This open object design and prototyping platform makes its machine tools and digital equipment, including its 3D printers, available to everyone: students, researchers, project leaders and companies.
“We opened the place in January and we already have 10 hosted projects and soon even a company created”, says the Head of the Institute of Technology Frédéric Bos.
This tool aims to decompartmentalise skills and foster an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit among young people.
