The platformshowcases the work of Makers and designers, and tags their organizations as part of networks like research alliances or membership bodies. DSI4EU also aims to map and identify fundings across Europe, along with other potential partners and collaborators for digital social innovators.
On May 16th, DSI4EU will share their approach to policy, funding, and public service partnerships with policymakers, investors and practitioners in London. The event will take place at Nesta headquarters (58 Victoria Embankment, London, EC4Y 0DS) and is open to everyone (free registration).
Topics discussed will include: lessons about growth and impact from the innovators themselves, building capacity in the non-profit, funding, investment and sustainable business models, as well as emerging city-based strategic approaches to digital social innovation.
Then on May 17th, participants will be able to join fellow practitioners, policymakers, and civil society groups from Europe on a tour of London’s most exciting digitial social innovation venues, while gaining an overview on some amazing projects that are delivering real social impact. Each organization will host for an hour and offer a short workshop with opportunities for networking, conversation, and knowledge exchange.
The annual Salone del Mobile–which will be taking place in Milan from April 4th-9th–is a world-renowned, weeklong furniture design event with 2,500 exhibitors and 300,000-plus visitors from 160 countries.
Over the years, Arduino has become a common tool amongst interactive designers looking to bring their installations to life, and Salone del Mobile is a great place to witness these various applications of the board firsthand. After browsing the show floor, don’t forget to visit our booth inside Pavilion 22, Stand G26, Workspace 3.0!
There, attendees will have a chance to play games, participate in giveaways, and learn more about our latest products. Moreover, be sure to get a glimpse of the great “Bridge” project from the Accademia di Architettura of Mendrisio, Switzerland–a fantastic demonstration of how Arduino can be used in architecture.
As Arduino Day quickly approaches, we are blown away by the tremendous support of the Arduino community with more than 480 events from all around the world.
Arduino Day Turin will feature talks by Massimo Banzi, Federico Musto, and other Arduino members, which will be streamed live on the Arduino Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels. The streaming will begin at 3pm CET. A final program of presentations will be posted as soon as possible at this link. Starting at 11am CET at Toolbox Turin, the agenda will include: two workshops for children in collaboration with Fablab for Kids (registration here and here), a basic and an advanced workshop for adults in coordination with the Casa Jasmina crew (registration here and here), as well as a young Maker activity corner supported by Codemotion Kids. Everything will be free of charge.
Arduino Day Malmö festivities (full program here) will consist of an Arduino project showcase, a panel of discussions with David Cuartielles and local Makers, in addition to a pair of free activities for kids (registration is not necessary). Starting at 5pm, there will also be a live streaming of the talks from Arduino Day Turin.
Last but not least, the Arduino team will be hosting a third official event in San Jose, CA (register here). The program will kick offwith a demonstration of Arduino projects, followed by a live video exchange with Arduino Day Toronto. This is a great opportunity for Arduino enthusiasts in America to socialize with one another, exhibit their latest creations, and even learn more about Arduino in the classroom. Everyone is welcome to attend!
We cannot wait to celebrate with our community this Saturday! Until then, continue sharing your plans and inviting your friends to join Arduino Day via social media using the hashtag #ArduinoD17.
Arduino Day is now less than three weeks away, and we cannot wait to celebrate with everyone on April 1st. So far, we’ve received hundreds of submission from all across the world and are constantly updating our map with new events — which by the way, if yours has been approved, do not forget to add the agenda!
