FabLab Genk

The project ‘Fablabs in the border region’ wants to stimulate the collaboration between students and researches from universities and university colleges with industry and social economy. Furthermore, it wants to encourage entrepreneurship among young people by giving them a chance in realising a first small series of products. A FabLab (Fabrication or Fabulous Laboratory) offers ‘open source hardware’ to create an affordable prototype. The creation of FabLab Genk is an important part of the project.
