Makerstown 2018 | Think Young

Updated: Jun 5, 2020

Over 2’000 makers, start-ups, inventors, European top policy makers, business leaders, high school teachers and children met in a unique fair to discover and debate what the Town of the Future will look like. Makerstown’s goal is that of shaking up Brussels by showcasing the Town of the Future and what needs to be done in terms of policy, private investment and education to ensure the Town of the Future can become a reality. Makers had the opportunity to exhibit their innovative ideas and products, and during the Makers conference, highly interactive panels hosted top EU leaders to discuss how they have been putting entrepreneurship at the heart of the European agenda.
