Made@EU Project’s Residencies and Workshops

Made@EU is a project, co-funded by the EU that aims to bridge the digital divide that currently hinders the widespread use of digital fabrication knowledge and technologies in the European cultural and creative sectors, especially in the fields of design, arts and crafts.

Made@EU Ι


Residency programmes for the development of projects that explore 3D digital fabrication systems. The participants are tasked with the development of a project that represents their background.

The workshops are designed to foster and curate the creation of projects representing the spirit of Made@EU. They include training by experts on digital fabrication tools (3D printing, Vinyl cutting, 3D scanning etc.).


Explore the integration of digital fabrication systems into the processes of design and production.


The development of digital fabrication tools has been described as the third industrial revolution in as much as it is expected to radically change the production and distribution status quo, and strongly influence society as a whole, from a cultural, social and economic platform.
