Presentation

The medialab Makery is the space for experimentation of the Makery media. It allows to gather, to give visibility and to publish innovative projects and actions of the media: events, media partnerships, forums and big interviews; data-journalism web applications and software and hardware tools; trainings and workshops.

The medialab Makery thus offers a space for continuous reinvention of the media form through the simultaneous production and dissemination of scientific knowledge, innovative tools and original data.

The medialab Makery is aimed at a public of makers, amateurs, innovative companies, information professionals and scientists, for whom it will develop in particular an API allowing access to open and original data, data visualization applications, or networking between researchers and information specialists thanks to data.

The R&D activity and the editorial project specific to medialab Makery are structured around three complementary areas: an “IMAGINE” area, a “MAKE” area, and a “TRANSMIT” area. These spaces are respectively dedicated to scientific and societal reflection and debate, to experimentation and the realization of innovative projects, and finally to training in new technologies.

The Makery medialab explores three main themes on which Makery already has expertise: connected health, green techs, and the resilient city (or Fabcity).
