What is FabLab Asia Network?
In the Asian region, the first FabLab was born in India. Since that time, it has expanded to more than 15 sites in 7 countries.
During the International Conference of FabLab administrators held in Japan in August of 2013 (FAB9), it was discussed and agreed that there is a need to share knowledge and collaborate on certain issues in Asia. Therefore, collaboration is necessary and the FabLab Asia Network was proposed.
The following are the aims for the Asian region identified at the international conference:
- To increase the FabLabs in Asia;
- To improve the FabLab Technology in Asia;
- To promote common use of local Asian materials in FabLab;
- To solve common Asian problems and promote collaborations among Asian FabLabs;
