Live Panels (Thursday and Friday, 10.00AM)

How can Fablabs have an impact on traditional education models in the Asia region? The launching panel, The role of the Fablabs in STEAM Education, will see experts from the network discuss their experiences and propose new modes for the future of education.

In the second panel, “Post Covid-19 Fab Life” we will talk about the ways the pandemic changed us and try to imagine how Fablabs can be at the forefront of this new era.

Fablab Updates (Thursday, 1:30PM)

What have we been up to in the last couple of years? How did we evolve, what new projects have we been working on, what interesting experiences happened to us? Let’s hear it from the network! Several Fablabs in the Asia Region will make a short presentation to give us an update of their recent activities.

Workshops and Talks (Thursday from 3:00PM / Friday from 1:30PM)

It’s been a while since we have seen each other, and here is the time to share new inspiring activities. Talks and Workshops will be organised by several friends of the Fablab Network, spanning from United Nations SDGs to Medical 3D print, to Jewellery.

We will have several ZOOM rooms, opening in parallel, choose the one you prefer or jump around. Each activity will be recorded and available for watching in the following days.

FAN7 Discussion (Friday, 11:15)

We know it is not easy to commit to be the next host of the FAN conference in such a troubled time, nevertheless we will have a discussion open to Fablabs who would like to be candidates or trying to think together about the future format of the conference.

Closing Party (Friday, 4:00PM)

We are going to have a closing ceremony and a party to celebrate the Asia network, meet old friends and have some “virtual” fun. How To Party Almost Anywhere Online! Just join the main conference room, turn on camera and speaker and have fun! You can bring your own drink and wear a funny hat!


Most of you who voted for Shanghai to host FAN6 were very excited to be able to visit our wonderful city… We want to share with you some videos from Shanghai, its hidden secrets and the tourist spots, just tune in the Main Conference during the break time and take a stroll downtown!

We hope you enjoyed the Conference
