Final event and presentation of the results of '3D Jail': a broader look at 3D printing technology
Fundación Cibervoluntarios is coordinating the final multiplier event of the project "3D Jail: printing the future", funded by the Erasmus+ Program, in which the results obtained will be presented, with a specific focus on Spain. This final multiplier event is open to participation and will be held on 29 July, between 10.00 and 12.00 hours.
The objective of this workspace is to share the results of 3D Jail, a programme that continues to grow with the aim of developing specialised laboratories in 3D production and manufacturing inside and outside European penitentiary institutions, in order to favour the rapid creation of prototypes. 3D Jail engages the prison population in one of the most innovative phenomena of 3D printing, focusing on the skills needed to set up and use a 3D printer, as well as the identification of different types of materials.
The agenda of the closing event will feature César García, co-founder of MakeSpace Madrid, a collaborating entity of the project, as well as disseminator and creator of La Hora Maker, who will address the potential of this technology among the Maker community. The Director of European Projects and manager of 3D Jail on behalf of the Fundación Cibervoluntarios, Ester Maestro, will also take part, as well as the manager of projects and cybervolunteers of the foundation, Jacqueline Carvalho, who will be in charge of the presentation of the project, as well as detailing its objectives and partners.
The event will have a final space for debate, will be open to participation, prior registration, and will be held in Spanish through the Zoom platform.
3D printing is currently one of the most relevant techniques in creative and productive processes in small and medium-sized companies around the world. This project develops methodologies and specific training modules on 3D printing technology, replicable in Europe, in prisons and through distance learning.
Along with Fundación Cibervoluntarios, the partners of the '3D Jail' project also include La Bottega Solidale (Italy), which coordinates the project, Asturia vzw (Belgium), M2C Institute for Applied Media Technology & Culture (Germany), É.F.A. Équipe di Formatori Associati (Italy), Universo Cooperativa Sociale (Italy), European Institute for Education and Learning (Greece) and Anadolu University (Turkey).
