ThinkYoung, partner of the EU STEM Coalition, in collaboration with Wilfried Martens Centre kicked off the European Maker Week with MakersTown on May 24.
The Makers are a new wave of entrepreneurs and Do-It-Yourself experts empowered by Web 3.0 tools, technology and crowdfunding. MakersTown is the first event of its kind in Brussels bringing together Makers, business leaders and European policy-makers to showcase, share and succeed. It is also a conference. European Commissioners Jyrki Katainen (Jobs, Growth and Investment and Competitiveness) and Carlos Moedas (Research, Science and Innovation) will participate in the panels.
