What is a Fab Lab?

A FabLab (Fabrication Laboratory) is an open prototyping platform where knowledge sharing is essential. Tools such as 3D printers, CNC milling machines, laser cutter or a vynil cutter as well as technical and logistical assistance are available to facilitate invention but equal emphasis is put on fostering a multidisciplinary and intergenerational dynamic between startups, artists, designers, architects, engineers, hobbyists, researchers, students and so on.

Located within the Technoport in Belval (business incubator and coworking place), Fab Lab Luxembourg is part of a global network of fab labs that attracts individuals, enterprises and academic institutions to stimulate people’s creativity.
