The Global Innovation Gathering (GIG), a sub conference developed by re:publica, brings together innovation hub managers, makers, hackers and entrepreneurs from across the world. In the last three years GIG has become a central part of the conference programme, showcasing tech innovation and maker projects from Asia, Africa and Latin America. The GIG members have formed a strong community, exchanging information and expertise on innovation and maker issues throughout the year.

GIG will be coming together for its 4th annual gathering and its members are taking over the #rpTEN stages on numerous occasions during the three re:publica days. Like last year, GIG will also host the Makerspace at re:publica TEN.

For its event programme, GIG will be presenting another set of exciting projects, such the Nepalese Communitiere hub, which connects development aid and aid focused startups with people on the ground. The programme will also cover current and global political developments in the world-wide maker scenes and discuss issues such as the high import taxes on hardware in Ethiopia and Brazil. Outside of re:publica, the GIG network is a leading forum to discuss hub-related issues, from inclusive community management to business models to sustainability, with other network members.
