Labs

How can we combine technology and creativity to come up with solutions for a better world?

About the Labs

tinker, think and build together

Join one of the labs, meet new people and find common ground to innovate and kickstart your future endeavours.

At a Border Sessions Lab you can dive into a specific topic or theme together with a diverse group of around 30 - 50 people, such as designers, hackers, students, entrepreneurs, artists, innovation managers, activists, citizens and scientists. It is a unique oppertunity to tinker, think and build together towards a clear mission and goal.
