Would you like to develop a prototype? You can turn any of your ideas into reality with the help of our 3D printers, laser cutters and special software. Our experts will show you how each device works and help you enhance your project – since it’s not just technical abilities that matter at COLab, but also the continued development of your entepreneurial skills. Which is why we regularly organise courses, idea contests and advanced trainings that polish up your idea and know-how. This makes COLab the regional powerhouse of ideas available to all interested parties. We’re an open workshop, which means all BTU employees and students, but also citizens and entrepreneurs can use the offer and jointly strengthen the innovation power of the region.
