What is Forskningsavdelningen?

Forskningsavdelningen (Swedish: “Research Department”) is a hackerspace in Malmö, a non-profit interest group which is open to everyone and advocates “learning by doing”, DIY culture and knowledge sharing with a focus on technology – computers, programming, mechanics, communication, electronics and art.

We’ve forked again!

On Tuesdays some of us meet at Kontraforsken from 19.00. It’s located at Norra Grängesbergsgatan 26, in Kontrapunkts workshop building, Malmø.

On Thursdays some of us meet at fbrkn/stpln from 19.00. It’s located in the basement at Stapelbäddsparken 3, close to the skate arena, Malmoe.

It is also possible to use the first two spaces on other days, and at other times of day – if you want to work on your projects. We call this “extra Forsk”.

What is a hackerspace?

A hackerspace (also referred to as a hacklab, makerspace or creative space) is a physical location where people with common interests, usually in computers, technology, or digital or electronic art can meet, socialise and collaborate. A hackerspace can be viewed as an open community lab incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops or studios where hackers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.

We maintain a wiki at wiki.forskningsavd.se. Learn about projects, equipment, events and even get to know a few of the members that have edited their profiles there.

If you’d like to come, just show up on any of the given days. Check out the Contact page if you want to know more. Or, if you have a geeky friend that should know about this, tell them.
