Urban M, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and led by the Institute of Creative Innovation, addresses urban manufacturing by supporting and developing collaborative maker spaces where people from different disciplines work together to produce new products and services.
Based on our work around STEAMhouse, Birmingham City University are the lead partners on this forward-thinking European project.
The objective of the Urban Manufacturing Project is to ensure that collaborative makerspaces thrive.
We achieve this through identifying best practice, testing policy approaches and supporting our cities/regions in creating receptive conditions.
Our hope is that we will demonstrate the impact that cooperative facilities can have on innovation and establish a European network of advocates.
