Each year members of the more than 1,600 worldwide Fab Labs gather to share, discuss, collaborate and create communities around the different local and global interests regarding digital manufacturing, innovation and technology. This international event gathers both field practitioners and laboratory researchers for a week of panels, talks, hands-on workshops on the principles and applications of digital fabrication.
Henk Buursen of Fablab Amsterdam will attend Fab15 on behalf of Waag this year.
