MAX (Makers’ eXchange) project is a pilot policy project, co-funded by the European Union, that aims to define and test policies and actions supporting the mobility and exchanges of experience between the cultural and creative industries, creative hubs, maker-spaces, fab-labs and formal and non-formal learning and skills development systems in a cross-sectoral way and embed makers’ mobility schemes for skills development and inclusion into mainstream CCIs support programmes, policies and ecosystems across Europe.

“I would define maker culture as an emerging cultural movement that, following the open and sharing spirit of the science Ethos, and using the potential of Internet, has contributed to one of the greatest transfers of knowledge in the history of civilizations.”


Alexandre Rousselet, Vulca

“Maker Culture”, which could also be called “Do-It-Yourself culture”, is a movement to share very informal skills, especially through distributed networks.


Hyper Global/ Hyper Local Open Call

Hyper Global x Hyper Local, an open call that is inviting makers to explore what it means to be both connected physically to local contexts and digitally at a global scale when travel and physical exchanges are not possible. The call addresses makers in the broadest sense of this term, including creative professionals who produce work and projects using technology and/or traditional tools and methods, artists, craftspeople, sculptors and textile designers.


Thierry M’Baye, m.e.u.h/Lab

“We need to think about deployment with the actors, rather than offering readymade solutions. We need to co-build an “Erasmus for makers”.


Call2Call Workshop

The Call2Call workshop, was an open session that took place on the 19th of November and aimed to co-design the open call of the first mobility pilot.

“The foundations of our maker culture is a joint symbiosis of humanities, social, formal, natural and applied sciences. “
