How do we cultivate a resilient and responsive distributed design community?

From August 23rd to October 17th Fab Lab Barcelona as a partner of the Reservist project is hosting a weekly online chat series, where guests share their personal experiences of responding to moments of crisis. The aim is to collaboratively work on a shared vision, align values, and develop best practices.

On September 13th from 16:00 – 17:00, Ohad Meyuhas will chat with us. Ohad is an Architect with expertise in research, design, innovative product management and implementation and mentoring of digital fabrication solutions (3D printing specifically). Has extensive experience defining product roadmaps for new innovations, end-to-end project execution, and establishment of global partnerships in both academia and industry.
While at Stratasys, a 3D printing company, Ohad held leading positions, and currently holds the position, Director of Sustainability Innovation and Solutions. Over the years, he has developed the first 3D printing curriculum that has been implemented in universities around the world and created the first Certification for Additive Manufacturing. He has also developed unique research tools and products for academia and industry and headed up multiple corporate social responsibility initiatives.
Ohad is also a lecturer both master’s and bachelor programs at Reichman University (IDC Herzliya), Shenkar College of Engineering, Design, and Art. His focus is on product design, tangible user interfaces (TUIs), digital fabrication, and parametric design. His background includes establishing and running the Israeli FabLab network, design and open labs around the world and teaching the global digital fabrication diploma course as part of the Fab Academy Diploma since 2011.
He continues to investigate the relationship between digital fabrication, education, and social impact, and how new technologies shape our daily lives by creating a new symphony. Ohad holds a Master’s in advanced architecture (MAA) from the Institute for Advanced Architecture Catalonia (Iaac); B.Arch. from Bezalel, and Fab Academy Diploma from Fab Foundation.
Ohad established and runs the Israeli FabLab network and is an instructor at the global Fab Academy Diploma course for Digital Fabrication since 2011.
His research projects include exploring the relationship between digital fabrication, education, and social impact, and checking how those new technologies can shape our daily life and the way we manufacture today as well as the relation between personal fabrication, collective composition, and the factories of tomorrow.

The Resilient Makers Stories will be facilitated by Jean Luc Pierite, as part of the MDEF Residency Program. They are part of the European project Reservist that aims to establish a network of ‘reservist cells’, resilient networks that can be activated within 48hrs to switch to manufacturing medical products and services that are spiking in demand. Reservist has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 101016041.
