  This month, we are excited about the inauguration of Corsica's first Fab Lab, a community center located in Ajaccio, France.

Fab Lab Connect has been integral to the initiation, bringing together a public and private partnership, planning, staffing, equipping, and opening Fab Lab Ajaccio. We are happy to share our first-hand experience and best practices with you all. It has been a wonderful journey with the support of the Fab Network and a creative local team.

As President of the not-for-profit Fab Lab Ajaccio Association, I invite you to learn more about Fab Lab Ajaccio and its workshops – and perhaps visit when you are in Europe!

Thank you,
- Simone Amber, Fab Lab Connect Co-Founder
