HEI MAKERS consortium meeting #2

This time INVENTYA is hosting the HEI MAKERS project meeting, aimed to discuss the progress made in half a year and decide on further steps. One of the key elements of the meeting is to finalise the guidelines on how higher education institutions should increase the scope of collaboration with maker spaces, and make their study programmes more engaging, more relevant, more wanted by students. A special guest from Liverpool John Moores University will present student accelerator „Idealab“ and the partners will try to knock on the doors of Makers Quarters in Manchester.
