The European Maker Week Is an initiative promoted by European Commission and implemented by Maker Faire Rome in collaboration with Startup Europe, aim to draw European citizens to the “Maker world” and the FabLab, Makerspaces, Hackersapce and the Hardware Startups Environment.
The aims of European Maker Week are two folds:
- To create awareness about the importance of the maker culture to foster an education of creativity and innovation in all schools across Europe.
- To build bridges between local authorities and media and the main players of their own local makers ecosystems.
We particularly want to reach out to new players (e.g. Schools) who have never organized a maker event before.
