What is the Hive?

The Hive is a residency dedicated to collaborative creation, in order to develop concrete solutions applied to the challenges of our world. It is part of an international ecosystem of professionals from private, public, academic and artistic sectors.

How does it work?

  1. You will have both a working space and a living place with all the resources you need to invent our future (maker labs, peers, mentors, sports amenities, a private room, great food and a grant.
  2. You will collectively decide what major projects you will work on and design the best teams to achieve objectives you will set.
  3. In the meantime, you will also be asked to contribute to other campers' issues, ranging from exchanging ideas to prototyping.
  4. You will acquire a network and competences for your own projects. And we might even be able to help you realize them!
