It is our pleasure to inform you that the Institute of Entrepreneurial Education and Innovation, represented by Zrinka Valetić, held an online introductory meeting with Mr. Piet Grymonprez, co-founder and director of MyMachine Global, and with the professional help of Roberto Vdović, president of FabLab NGO, and presence of FabLab’s representatives Iva Valenčić and Tin Valetić.
Although the contact had been established many years ago with this meeting all the hard work for launching MyMachine Hrvatska is again being renewed.
For the second time in a row, the non-governmental organization FabLab from Zagreb managed to organize MakerFaire Zagreb on Saturday, October 3rd, 2020, in front of the Nikola Tesla Technical Museum, respecting all epidemiological measures.
The Institute had the opportunity to participate as an exhibitor and present the “Together and Responsible for the Environmental Benefit” project. The project was presented to those interested in the device purchased with the financial support of the U.S. Embassy in Zagreb. The device consists of a granulator and an injector. Pieces of discarded plastic (e.g. bottle caps) are inserted into the granulator and crushed. Crushed pieces of plastic are inserted into an injector where they melt at high temperatures then extruded into the prepared desired shapes.
We thank the FabLab team for the effort they have put into the organization for this significant event and we hope we will see you at the next MakerFaire 2021.
