OD&M Knowledge Alliance in Shanghai (16-20 October 2017)

A group of 19 OD&M consortium participants attended the “Shanghai Learning Mobility Action” between October 16th and 20th to learn how the situation in China is related to the Maker movement and compare it to the European context.

It was a very interesting mobility action in which the consortium experimented with Chinese culture and was able to learn from the Open approach that they have regarding technology.

During those days the group visited the Fablab Shanghai, the Makerspaces Mushroom Cloud Shanghai and XinChenJian Lab, the Sci-tech City with its institutes, universities and business innovation centres, the Hangzhou Dianzi University Information Engineering School, and in particular a number of labs such as FischerTechnik Machine Innovation Laboratory, Machine Vision Laboratory, CNC Central Laboratory and Mechatronics Laboratory, the XJTLU – Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University, etc.

In the same way, the OD&M Alliance attended a conference organized by the Hackerspace Union of Hangzhou where some partners presented the project.
