The Digital Encyclopaedia of European Sociability (DIGIT.EN.S) project will produce the first open access digital encyclopedia on sociability in Europe in the long Eighteenth Century. The aim of the DIGIT.EN.S project is twofold:

1. to develop the field of research on British sociability in the long eighteenth century,

2. to link British models of sociability to other European and colonial models of sociability and to examine how models and forms circulated from one society to another, how they were appropriated and modified, leading to the diffusion and construction of new models of sociability in Europe.

Inspired by the FabLab digital fabrication model, UBO Open Factory is a 300 m² multidisciplinary innovation laboratory. Open to all UBO students and staff and to people and organizations outside the university, it is equipped with traditional tools and digitally controlled machines (e.g. 3D printers and laser cutters) for rapid prototyping. Managers offer innovation training and support for project leaders. Conferences or creative marathons are just two types of events organized to create links. Students from different disciplines meet to brainstorm current societal issues (sustainable development, disability, cities in transition, culture, etc.).
