Up to 7 persons open the lab every month coordinating by one fabmanager : Tina.

In five years, we got different ways of financing our Fablab : - Private donations in 2017 - Municipality in 2020 - Finance act in 2022

We are still looking for our stable economic model and always look for new partners to support us.
