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.
On Thursdays, we convene from 18:00 onwards at Fabriken, a space in the Stapelbäddsparken building.
It is also possible to use the space 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/or collaborate. A hackerspace can be viewed as an open community lab incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops and/or studios where hackers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.
The factory is located at Stapelbäddsparken 3. Thursdays. A walk-right-in space, shared with many other groups. Here you may find people chatting or even playing a boardgame. Some scrap materials can be used.
We write down things in our wiki at wiki.forskningsavd.se. You can find out 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 given Thursday at 18:00, or 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.
