FABLAB IN OULU AND ABROAD
FabLab is a global concept which originated at the university of MIT in 2001. The first FabLab to be set up outside MIT was in India in 2002. Today, the FabLab network includes approx. 3000 labs worldwide. Currently there are 12 labs in Finland of which half are located in Oulu. Oulu’s first and Finland’s second lab was FabLab Oulu at the University of Oulu. BusinessAsema FabLab adheres to the rules of the Fab Charter proposed by the Fab Foundation.
In 2023, Oulu joined the global Fab City network as the first Finnish city and the first big city in the Nordics. The goal of this network is to accomplish more sustainable and innovative entrepreneurship, develop circular economy, enable lifetime learning for all civic groups, and strive towards a carbon-neutral future.
