Digital Manufacturing is changing the way the world has seen manufacturing. Some consider this as “the next industrial revolution”. A group of Sri Lankan Social Scientists from Sri Lanka, Europe and United States has been conducting a project to explore the opportunities for digital manufacturing in post -conflict economic development in Sri Lanka. The group has been collaborating over the internet in setting up of a Fabrication Laboratory (FabLaB) for empowerment of a rural community in Sri Lanka. This session will discuss the objectives, process and challenges faced in this project. It is expected to conduct a panel discussion with the participation of project members in the session physically and members joining from Sri Lanka, Europe and U.S connected via Google Hangout. It is also expected to webcast the session live.
