The Maker Economy


The RWTH Aachen Chair of Technology and Innovation Management, headed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Frank Piller, invites interested individuals to attend the symposium The Maker Economy.


The focus of the conference is on the effects and possibilities of the fourth industiral revolution: consumers today do not wait for the newest developments from established companies, but rather use the possibilities of new systems and create, for example, three dimensional products based on individual desire through fab labs. Consumers become entrepreneuerial and create new structures. In the future, known rules for successful economies may be less valid. As a part of the conference, backgrounds, examples, challenges, and chances for established companies will be discussed.
