The workshop relates to the project, which aims to create a personalized, 3D printed palm called myhand, designed in line with open source assumptions, a circular economy and social business principles.

During the workshop we will develop a business model for the potential users of myhand (that do not have a hand). It will be based on the principles of:

  • a social business - whereby maintenance and management of the project is not driven by the goal of maximizing profits
  • a circular economy, which aims to eliminate the carbon footprint and create a closed circulation of materials that the product consists of.

At the workshops we will work in groups, analyzing the problems of the community of people using prostheses - prospective myhand users.

Workshops are for people from various backgrounds, no specific education is required. When applying, please provide information, why you want to participate and how you can contribute. Participants of the workshop are invited to attend the lecture „Interdisciplinary project process – myhand" during the introduction to the workshop.
