Innovation space: Karlskrona Makerspace

There is only make!

The Karlskrona Makerspace is a research, education, and collaboration environment initiated and hosted by BTH and the Department of Mechanical Engineering. 

The Karlskrona Makerspace is creating a platform to embrace and foster creativity among different disciplines and backgrounds. It is open learning environment where people can co-learn and co-create innovative and emergent solutions to some of today’s problems by the use of maker culture.

The space is situated in H-building (outside the library) and consists of a space with maker tools.

For events and news, follow Karlskrona Makerspace on Facebook.

Makerspace events and examples

Build, fail, and build again... to learn!

We believe that by providing a space for students, businesses, innovators and entrepreneurs to partake in the design phases of inspiration-ideation-implementation we can help them realise their ideas and prototype products and services which could form the basis of new ventures and employment. 

We are passionate about educating people to find solutions for themselves instead of being only consumers. Our platform not only supports the community to focused more on the needs they are trying to satisfy, but also fosters an environment which enables them to satisfy those needs and co-create solutions which bring value to both themselves and their community at large.

“Fail often to succeed sooner"

Never print on a Monday 😉

Gear, gear, gear…

It is not about the gear, but about what thoughts that pops up, and what you can do, and think, assisted by “the gear".

Below is some of the stuff present in our makerspace. Besides this we have access to some heavy machinery for milling, metal/wood works etc. but that is restricted for educated engineers/students only du to hazards. Of course we have prototyping material and printing filaments etc..   

Cyber Physical Factory - Festo Industry 4.0
