Fab Labs

Description / Objectives

Digital fabrication to encourage citizen social innovation.

Fab Labs are places to learn, collaborate in different projects and form part of the city's social development. They are a public service concerning technology and the science of digital production. Anyone and everyone can enjoy the spaces, tools and public resources and propose projects to improve their surroundings.

Fab Labs are open to everyone and the "price" paid to use them is known as contraprestació, a system of social reinvestment for the support received in the lab in exchange for the time, talent, involvement and participation of people to benefit the community. All without any money changing hands.
