About this GitBook

A working document that build the Fab City Hubs toolkit within the CENTRINNO project
CENTRINNO is a Horizon 2020 project that aims to develop strategies, approaches, and solutions for the regeneration of neglected industrial historic sites and areas into locally productive, sustainable, and inclusive hubs. It proposes to explore, implement and support the emergence of a new type of hubs named Fab City Hubs (FCHs), in the nine pilot cities (Amsterdam, Barcelona, Blönduós, Copenhagen, Geneva, Milan, Paris, Tallinn, Zagreb) as testbeds for sustainable manufacturing in urban environments.
This Fab City Hubs (FCH) Toolkit aims to be a practical and living resource to understand and document the process and the fundamental steps that need to be undertaken to conceive, set up, and run FCHs. It is developed along with three iterations during the lifespan of CENTRINNO project and engages pilot cities in its co-design, in order to merge theoretical assumptions with real-world experimentation.

Main sections of the Toolkit

The first section of this document is a Glossary section that provides definitions of the main terms used in this Toolkit.
The core part of the FCH Toolkit is organised according to 3 main sections :
  • An introductory section about the role of the FCH Toolkit in supporting the emergence of Fab City Hubs
  • A section dedicated to providing answers and guiding principles about what a Fab City Hub is. In particular, you can have direct access to a list of FAQ about Fab City Hubs. And you can also have a preview about 10 guiding principles for setting up your local Fab City Hub.
  • A practical, hands-on section about How to set up a Fab City Hub, containing a step-by-step roadmap with the tools and strategies that will help you to set up your Fab City Hub. In this section, you will have the possibility to search tools according to 2 different ways.
Finally, this Toolkit concludes with 2 additional sections. The first one, How can I contribute to this Toolkit, have been created to collect input on how to improve this document. The last page - References - gathers all the resources and efforts that have contributed to writing this Toolkit.

Acknowledgements : This GitBook have been developed by Volumes but it has been possible thanks to all the insightful contributions coming from all CENTRINNO partners, the WP3 partners and the other WPs leaders and the 9 Fab City Hubs local teams. In particular, some fundamental pages of this Toolkit have been co-developed in collaboration with the Fab City Foundation, the METABOLIC Institute, the Reinwardt Academy (AHK), Onl'fait, and all the 9 CENTRINNO FCHs pilot teams that have contributed to the section Stories.
