Sliperiet holds prototyping workshops equipped with digital production technologies

The Sliperiet environment is based on open innovation and a culture of sharing knowledge and experience. Our workshops are resources for education and applied research at Umeå University and is an arena for collaboration. They are also available to entrepreneurs, creatives and businesses, and are frequently used by the tenants at Sliperiet.

Autumn 2018 a rebuilding of Sliperiet begins, which will last for about a year. During the construction period, parts of our workshops will temporarily be moved to FabLab is entered from Tullmagasinet's basement, at Västra Strandgatan 9 ( the entrance opposite the small red brick building, the electrical substation, at Skeppsbron's parking lot), in central Umeå. When the rebuilding of Sliperiet is completed, we will move back again., in central Umeå. Once the rebuilding is completed, we will be able to offer more extensive workshops and an even more developed environment for curiosity and learning of science and technology for all ages.

The adaptation of the premises is the first step in merging and developing Sliperiet's and Umevatoriet's organisations. Together we will take advantage of the potential of combining Sliperiet's innovation, research and collaboration environment and Umevatoriet's educational environment.
