The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2012. Julien Bicrel also graduated from the Rennes Institute of Political Studies, and was admissible to the ENA - French elite public service school. He also worked in the private sector, as a consultant in local public services, for Deloitte, and as a project manager for insertion and social business at Bouygues-Habitat Social.

Fab Labs are small workshops equiped with machine tools allowing personal fabrication and prototyping of a variety of objects. The first Fab Lab was created within the (Massachussets Institute of Technology) MIT in the early 2000s and today, Fab Labs are part of a world network. The promise of Fab Labs is rich, encompassing innovation together with the development of Southern countries or sustainability, and Fab Labs definitely challenge the contemporary productive model.
