Looking for ideas for products “made in Hamburg”.
I.As part of the Fab City initiative, Hamburg is running a competition to find ideas for products “made in Hamburg”. Fab City’s goal is to produce as many products locally as possible in the Hansiatic city based on the principle of the circular economy, EconomicS Senator Michael Westgeman (Independent) said at the presentation of the “Maker Challenge” concept competition on Tuesday. At the town hall.
The so-called Fab Labs are available for this purpose, equipped with easy-to-use digital production machines and related development software such as 3D printers and milling machines, almost all of which can be manufactured at home. “We have a lot of knowledge of labs and machines in Fab City Hamburg. However, what we do not have are the right products for the advancement of the Fab City concept – and we want to identify, develop and build these with citizens,” said Manuel Moritz, project coordinator at Helmut Schmidt University.
Those interested can submit proposals until May 15. A sketch, a photo or a concept drawing and a brief description of the concept were enough. It addresses individuals or groups – from students to retirees. The main prize is the realization of the project and the construction of a prototype.
