>New Fab Labs in Ireland

I was lucky to have the opportunity of visiting Belfast last week. The purpose of this trip was to explore the possibility of launching two new FabLabs in Northern Ireland. Pat Colgan, an old friend who serves as the Chief Executive of SEUPB (Special European Union Programmes Body) invited me and M.I.T. Professor Neil Gershenfeld to explore with local partners the possibility of applying innovation to bring divided communities together. They think that our Fab Lab in Bermeo can be an inspiring example for implementing peace building programmes innovatively.

If we succeed in bulding an strong proposal, DenokInn will be in charge of training the managers of the new labs in methodologies for identifying new social innovation opportunities. I will keep you posted.
