About the mAkE project

mAkE is African-European wide consortium project focusing on makerspaces as key drivers for local digital innovation. It aims at establishing mutual relationships and sustainable networks between African and European Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs)

The core concept of mAkE is to equip African and European hardware makerspaces and their members with relevant skills, infrastructures and regulation in order to support local businesses in implementing local digital innovation.
The goal is to help them to collaborate and scale up to become financially sustainable.

The Internet of Production Alliance is contributing towards this goal by enabling decentralized , local manufacturing to create new local value chains and business models.
