We create conditions that make Stockholm a global centre for societal innovations improving quality of life.
More about OpenLab
We are more than happy to announce the launch of our platform for collaborative, societal innovation, Utveckla Din Stad(swedish for Develop Your City). The purpose is to collect societal challanges from citizens, companies and organizations, allow creative minds contribute with solutions (or iterations of solutions) and finally make the solution available to anyone.
Create an account today and be a part of the solution!
Since February Openlab has been establishing a whole new work scene in Stockholm. We’ve created an environment which is not just a workplace, but also a network providing opportunities to find new assignments and build your future for a more sustainable society.
In addition to an open coworking space designed for collaboration and creativity, our members have access to our makerspace situated on the ground floor. All setup for 3D printing, prototyping and hands-on workshops.
At the Open Café, you can try out a variety of multicultural inspired dishes, all prepared from organic produce, and served in a inspiring environment designed for discussions and creativity.
You can book a room for conferences, seminars or dinners. If you would like us to tailor something specifically for your organization or venture, we can do that too.
Get a room!
For one semester Openlab's master's course students have worked in interdisciplinary teams in order to solve complex societal challenges for the Stockholm region. In October they presented a range of ideas and concepts to solve the challenges handed to them by the City och Stockholm, the Stockholm County Council and the County Administrative Board.
Now they are down to one final concept, which will be presented on January 12 at Openlab. Join us for this inspiring event!
