Make Event - Smart Prototyping
PXL Hogeschool, Zuyd Hogeschool and Fachhochschule Aachen are happy to invite you to their ‘Make Event’ focusing on ‘Smart prototyping’. The event is organised within the framework of Earlytech, a Euregional technology transfer project. With this event they aim to bring various players in the ‘Make Value Chain’ together in the crossborder Euregio-HYPEREGIO around the topic of ‘Smart Prototyping’.
Therefore they composed a varied program. First of all they invited four inspiring speakers. Secondly you can get acquainted with a maker ecosystem of companies and organizations. Fifteen of them get the opportunity to present themselves with a micro-booth and a short pitch to facilitate the networking. And finally, since real examples tell more than words, two Labs can be visited. The Makerspace itself with its prototyping equipment/service and the Make Lab with Augmented Reality and Cobotics applications. They hope to engage companies and researchers from the Euregio Meuse-Rhine working on topics related to Smart Prototyping, and to promote a dialogue across the borders.
