Con un po’ di ritardo (il servizio è andato in onda lunedì 18 agosto, l’inaugurazione è avvenuta martedì 12 agosto) pubblichiamo la registrazione di questo servizio, trasmesso durante l’edizione delle 14:00 del Telegiornale Regionale (purtroppo l’edizione delle 19:40, nella quale si è potuto vedere un montaggio differente di immagini ed interviste, non è stata resa disponibile integralmente negli archivi web della RAI).
Nelle diverse edizioni del TGR del Friuli Venezia Giulia del giorno 1 Settembre 2014 è stato trasmesso un breve servizio che descrive le finalità del progetto “3D Printing in Regenerative Medicine” ospitato presso il nostro SciFabLab, ecco due registrazioni:

The Science Dissemination Unit of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) is pleased to invite you to the opening ceremony of the
ICTP Scientific FabLab
Tuesday 12 August 2014 2:30 pm
The first FabLab being established in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, the new ICTP Scientific Fabrication Laboratory aims to play a significant role as a hub to support the creative work of scientists and scholars from the region.
It will host projects in the fields of science, education and sustainable development, with the availability of modern and versatile computer- controlled rapid prototyping tools, such as 3D printers, 3D scanners, laser engraving and cutting machines.
The ICTP ScifabLab will also welcome guest projects, offering free access to the local community of Makers in the evenings/weekends.
The SciFabLab will be operative from the first days of August, in the meantime we invite all interested Makers to submit a proposal for a Guest Project.
At this early stage, we plan to open the SciFabLab for Guest Projects two evenings per week, from 18:00 to 21:00, on a trial basis. More details will be posted soon.
“How to Make (Almost) Anything”
The experimental space, known as a “fabrication laboratory” (or FabLab), provides small-scale manufacturing equipment such as laser cutters, low-cost 3D printers and printed circuit board milling machines for making “almost anything”, and is considered a key asset for developing new technological ideas and prototypes.
ICTP’s FabLab will play a significant role as a focal point to support the creative work of scientists and scholars. This Scientific FabLab is to be devoted to creativity, invention and research, and it will be open to all ICTP scientists and external subscribers interested in science for the benefit of the whole society.
We foresee that ICTP’s Scientific FabLab will be exported to the developing world, specially across the ICTP’s research networks, and extended to empower scholars, scientists, and individuals there. Such FabLabs will help them in designing, discussing and creating innovative low-cost devices, such as inter-linked tiny sensors to gather data from multiple places with the use of Arduino microcontrollers. The field of interaction between man and machine is also of special research interest within FabLabs.
