Title The making of a maker-space for open innovation, knowledge sharing and peer-to-peer learning

English abstract
This short paper presents the initial steps in the establishment of Fabriken (the Factory) which is an open maker-space, and lab space for creating and experimenting with technologies. The space also provides a platform for peer-to-peer learning, and networked learning that goes on beyond the physical walls of the lab space. From a research perspective the development of Fabriken is a research intervention exploring how platforms for learning and innovation can be co-designed, and established in collaboration with the users. The aim of this paper is to present strategies behind this co-design process. To position Fabriken in a societal and cultural context some words are also said about the theoretical assumptions guiding this work, that is, socio-cultural theories on human action and learning.
