SpaceUp France and Open Space Makers are happy to announce a new SpaceUp Unconference hold in Toulouse on June 23rd, 2018, focused on the Federation initiative.
The Federation initiative
The Federation initiative was officially launched by CNES in June 2017 during the International Paris Air Show. It aims at opening space infrastructure to citizens and developing a Space disruption ecosystem able to produce open knowledge and open source space hardware in a collaborative and responsible way.
Federation is addressed to fablabs, makerspaces, hackerspaces and other open places where collaborative manufacturing tools are available, as well as to the citizens wishing to invest their energy in designing and building the future world, to meet societal challenges such as the protection of our planet, to allow mankind to live one day in space or simply to achieve their dreams.
This unconference contribute to the Toulouse Space Show Off events with the purpose to celebrate the first year of the Federation initiative.
