· Discover how we’re already working with a broad cross-section of our local communities so they can better help themselves and each other; harnessing the power sharing ideas openly, distributed manufacturing and digital fabrication in a heady mix of cutting-edge-experimentation and practical solutions to immediate needs.
· Find out how we’re exporting local ingenuity and expertise to help address one of the great global challenges of our times…whilst at the same time attracting inward investment to create new opportunities in the local economy.
