The Distributed Design Market Platform (DDMP) is a Creative Europe project that aims to foster the development and recognition of emerging European Maker and Design culture by supporting makers, their mobility, and circulation of their work, providing them with international opportunities and highlighting the most outstanding talent.
DDMP will improve the connections among makers, designers, and the market, providing thus tools, strategies, guides, contents, education, events, networks in order to enable them to commercialise their creations. This project aims at promoting and improving the connection of makers and designers with the market (Maker-to-Market) by strengthening the creative community of Fablabs.io, the online social network of the international Fab Lab community with more than 13,000 registered users located in more than 40 countries and in more than 1,200 Fab Labs. Alongside partners like Re: Publica (Berlin), POLIfactory (Milan), Ars Longa (Paris), Copenhagen Maker and Dansk Design Centre (Copenhagen), Fab Lab Berlin, Fab Lab Budapeste, Fred & Company (London), Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (Barcalona), Innovation Center Iceland (Reykjavík), Happylab (Vienna), and P2P Lab, Pakhuis de Zwijger will be joining DDMP, fostering mobility and development within creative disciplines dealing with Design and the Maker movement: creative players, makers, designers, artists, architects, scientists, students and others.
