The Labs Portal
Labs are the physical container for machines and the workspaces for people and projects.

The list below is user / community generated and maintained. If you don't see your lab listed here, it's because you haven't added it yet! You do not need permissions to add your lab to the list or to edit an entry. This is the place to add (coming) labs or labs that you might wonder if counts as a fablab.

Please indicate the status of your lab:

This rating is based on the Conditions for Fab Lab label

If your lab does not have a suitable website, you can generate an entry. Please use Category:Labs for any lab entries.

You are welcome AND ENCOURAGED to make the list better organized and more readable.

But please don't mess with the conformity rating just now.


Here is a map generated from the list, using Scraperwiki, Leaflet and OpenStreetMap, created by Peter Uithoven, Fablab Amersfoort. We have now embedded the map below.
