A Working Lab is Akademiska Hus’ national concept for co-working, makerspace, short contracts, Learning Lab and other flexible meeting places. It is our tool for developing campus-based environments where it is easy for students, researchers, the business community and other members of the community to meet under new flexible conditions.
A Working Lab is under development in collaboration with those who occupy our premises, with the building itself as a test bed. Here companies, businesses and people with a variety of backgrounds can rent space for the time they need and gain access to services and physical environments based on their specific needs. Conferences, meetings, trainings and workshops are held here.
A Working Lab is a concept for developing together with our customers, and it is also the common name for our new meeting places and services that are being formed around the country. The first example was A Working Lab – Johanneberg Science Park in Gothenburg, which opened in the autumn of 2019. Our concept permeates the entire building there, but it can just as well be implemented in our existing environments and as part of a building.
In the spring of 2020, we opened A Working Lab Universum in the middle of the Umeå campus and A Working Lab Innomedicum on the Solna Campus.
A Working Lab is under constant development in close collaboration with our partners and based on the needs of our users. We are proud partners with an array of participators connected to the universities where we are located.
