SCHUMPETER LABORATORY FOR INNOVATION
On an area of more than 800 m², the Schumpeter Laboratory for Innovation provides a platform for the information exchange of students, researchers, start-ups, SMEs and established industrial companies.
It offers access to the most modern infrastructure — digital production machines, extensive multimedia and communication systems – in order to support the cooperation of involved actors and the resulting product and business model development in the best possible way. Based on the development and implementation of new cooperation models, new strategies for targeted cooperation of the relevant key players are researched and derived. This hotspot for innovation regularly hosts various programs such as makerthons, innovation weeks, training programs and much more.
The new Schumpeter Laboratory for Innovation offers opportunities to teach practical skills and applying them creatively. Therefore, it encourages students to freely invent and prototype as in the course “Design Thinking and Rapid Prototyping”. By providing access to powerful tools of production within shared spaces and actively connecting the individuals involved, a significant boost in their commitment can be expected. Hands-on training concepts with learning by doing experiences represent an alternative to traditional teaching methods.
The construction work for the additional floor at Inffeldgasse 11 started in July 2017. In September 2018 we got the finished but empty building to create our new academic Makerspace which is now home of the working group Innovation. The interior work was completed by November 2018. The official opening of the laboratory took place on April, 25th 2019.
The Schumpeter Laboratory for Innovation is divided into different areas including the Fabrication Laboratory I & II (FabLab I & II), the Lobby, the Office Area, meeting rooms (Schumpeter & Tesla) and the DesignLab.
