Fab Lab Sant Cugat, will open soon on the Sant Cugat ESADE campus. It is a crucible for innovation which brings digital fabrication technologies to Businesses, Start-ups, students, and the community.
Fab Lab Sant Cugat's primary vocation is innovation, and we plan to achieve innovation through diversity. Our challenge will be to source our users beyond the scope of business and entrepreneurs. I am sincerely convinced that true innovation has a better chance to flourish through diversity. With diversity being a fertilizer for innovation, we will intend to make this place an attractive place for the community, the researchers, and the entrepreneurs. The community encompasses anyone living in the area. The Lab is responsible for educating the community by providing training and informative sessions to anyone that can be interested and counts with the support of the board of education of the city of Sant Cugat as well as universities and education centers. The researchers are key to the success of the lab. They are anyone between age 5 and 105 (but not limited to that age group) that shows a particular curiosity in learning and discovering new things. They are hackers of the conventional and acquire skills that can take them the extra mile required to resolve a problem. University students in arts, science, or engineering, professors, professionals, craftsmen are needed to build up the base of researchers. The business community will both submit ideas and market needs and team with other talents to help take an invention to the level of innovation.
