Building a community of makers and manufacturers

OpenMaker is an accelerator programme, that will help promote Local Enabling Spaces (LES) across Europe, by taking a unified approach to innovation and development.

Each LES will have people with skills in community management, to foster community building and participation for manufacturers and makers, as well as citizens and other stakeholders. Our plan is to firmly establish partnerships and cooperation between manufacturers and makers.

Through OpenMaker we will offer various incentives and opportunities, including seminars, special events and a prize competition. We will also build communities, contacts and associations, which our previous work in this area shows is a huge benefit of participating in a group programme.
