Verona FabLab counts on 3 people who run the social enterprise, and on a strong, well anchored and reliable network of experts who provide knowledge and skills on a multitude of thematic areas.
Our main sectors are:
- youth education and training for teachers&trainers;
- adult education & lifelong-learning;
- digital protyping&consultancy;
- projects on social innovation and environmental sustainability.
Our main centre is located in Grezzana, 15 km from Verona, but starting from 2021 we’ll run our fablab inside our first school (thanks to FabSchool project) and 6 innovation centres in all the Verona province.
Verona FabLab was born from the idea of creating a place where people could meet and share ideas, developing innovative projects thanks to avant-garde machines like 3D printers, CNC mills and laser- cutters.
Founded in 2014 as private, no profit cultural association, Verona FabLab developed in the years and in 2020 it became a social enterprise.
Verona FabLab’s strength relies in its capacity of providing formal and non-formal education, bringing youth and adults closer to technology with the scope to make them “conscious producers” and not “passive consumers”.
Verona FabLab promotes digital literacy and the development of computational thinking through the acquisition of: digital skills (programming, prototyping), cognitive skills (problem solving, critical thinking) and transversal competences (creativity and team working).
Verona FabLab has always been attentive towards environmental sustainability and besides Repair Cafès, it has started developing “green projects”.
