Dreams and Seeds: Kollaboratoriet – An Experimental Space for Collaboration

In 2018 Kollaboratoriet will continue to develop as a pilot within Uppsala University’s project for meeting spaces. Kollaboratoriet is coordinated by CEMUS. The space and concept will develop through the activities and ideas it stimulates and hosts.

During its first year (2017) Kollaboratoriet was developed as a pilot within the Live Baltic Campus Project. The aim of the pilot was to develop new ideas for how University campuses around the Baltic should promote creativity, innovation and sustainability, by using participatory methods and design thinking to develop new plans and visions for campuses. Throughout the year, it became clear that the space and its activities was of grate value and interest. The space held around 150 activities during 2017, even though the official opening was in April.
