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
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.
