Since 2014 the Makerspace has been a meeting point for creative minds, designers, inventors and coders from the maker scene at re:publica. Anyone interested in digital fabrication, laser cutting, tinkering or soldering is very welcome at the Makerspace!

Together with you, we want to create a space for creativity and the exchange of knowledge. Join other participants and create something new for our digital future. We develop robots together, make a statement flag or a paper GIF, work on a sustainable biotech future with medical open source devices or design boats out of plastic waste.

The Makerspace is curated and coordinated by our friends of  Global Innovation Gathering e.V. and with support from our membership in the Distributed Design Market Platform, co-funded by the framework programme “Creative Europe '' of the European Union. In addition, we are supported this year by xHain, network of open workshops Brandenburg and the machBar from Potsdam <3.

This year the Makerspace is being presented by the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (Bundesinstitut für Berufsbildung / BIBB):

An opportunity to actively present model projects from VET for sustainable development, InnoVET and examples from the regulatory department. How is vocational education and training in Germany currently positioning itself, what answers is vocational education and training finding to megatrends such as digitalisation and the challenges of socio-ecological change? With experiments and interactive stations at large tables, the participants get to talk.
Acting independently, getting things done, overcoming difficulties and seizing opportunities with heart, hand and mind....any way the wind blows. And that is precisely why Vocational Education 2022 is in the right place here at the Makerspace.
