Since 2017

Digital Fabrication & Networking

Our Story:

The technological revolution has changed the face of the world, and transformed the life style. Access to scientific and technological knowledge and the ability to exploit it are becoming increasingly strategic and decisive for the economic performance of countries and regions in the competitive globalized economy.

A country’s ability to solve problems and initiate and sustain economic growth depends partly on its capabilities in science, technology, and innovation. The simplest definition of innovation is the generation, development and implementation of ideas that result in new products, processes, or services. While the definition of innovation is simple, the process is complex and multi- faceted (Young Arab leaders Forum, 2007:2).

Born in the context of the growing Fab Lab movement in the arab world, We are a group of Young people across the Arab Region, interested in Digital fabrication, innovation and making a change.

Fab Arab Network:

The Fab Arab Network is an organization, made up of members of the Fab Lab movement in the Arab World ’s Special Interest Group, which seeks to build a participatory space where, through different platforms, tools and communication channels, young arab people can exchange knowledge about technology, sustainability, education and entrepreneurship.
