Border Left


Photonics enthusiasts in particular already know the Lichtwerkstatt Jena - the Makerspace at the Abbe Center of Photonics. Since its founding in 2017, the open space has become an innovation lab for photonics applications. Whether 3D printers, laser cutters, microcontrollers, robotics, XR technologies or optical measuring systems - the Makerspace is equipped with a specific selection of modern low- and high-tech tools and supports creative makers in turning their ideas into promising innovations. With success, because some small project ideas have now developed into start-ups with promising business models.
But creative ideas are not only to be found at the Beutenberg Campus. That's why another makerspace opened on 9 November: the "Stromwerkstatt" in the Institute of Solid State Physics at Helmholtzweg focuses on electronics and not only offers free access to technical equipment for electronics-based projects. There are also regular workshops on the application of special technologies and software. In the current workshop series, beginners and advanced learn about the application of 3D printing and microcontrollers, or experiment together in the area of the "Internet of Things".
The "Lichtwerkstatt" and "Stromwerkstatt" are aimed at students, doctoral candidates, researchers, creative professionals, engineers, interested citizens or start-ups who are interested in doing things up themselves, learning new things and exchanging ideas with others. As in the " Lichtwerkstatt", the "Stromwerkstatt" will be a place to invent together, exchange experiences and find new companions for joint projects. The "Stromwerkstatt" is an initiative of the "Lichtwerkstatt", which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
