This contribution describes the current state of the ongoing German federal research project 'FAB101' which explores Fab Labs and their role in German academia for three years by way of a real-world, action-oriented research infrastructure of four existing (Fab) Labs at universities. Currently, the results point to infrastructure, collaboration asp...

Context 1
... project's main methodological foci are transdisciplinarity (see Table 1), action-oriented research and Cooperative Systems Perspectives. Research activities explicitly comprise the participatory development and practical evaluation of new educational concepts, the codevelopment of functional prototypes for support systems and the active involvement of project researchers with 'their' Labs and their communities. ...

LIMB is a project recently started at Taubman College at the University of Michigan to explore the potential use of natural tree bifurcations as a new joinery method in heavy timber construction. This research studied the natural occurrence of branch bifurcations in different wood species to develop practical concepts for design and fabrication of...

Inkjet-printed wearable electronic textiles (e-textiles) are considered to be very promising due to excellent processing and environmental benefits offered by digital fabrication technique. Inkjet-printing of conductive metallic inks such as silver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs) are well-established and that of graphene-based inks is of great interest du...

The digital design appears as an integrated process from conceptualization to materialization and fabrication. The main question is: How the new medium changed the workflow in architecture from a linear model to a cyclic model and the role of new materialization as a form of design thinking? This paper is part of a study that investigates the archi...

... However, integrating and sustaining such a Lab in an academic context can be challenging and there are gaps in (published) knowledge about such organizations [8]. There is a need for applied research into and more exchange between academic (Fab) Lab stakeholders regarding matters such as governance, infrastructure and didactic considerations. ...
Conference Paper
Fab Labs and "Maker" practices have been recognized in research and practice as contexts that facilitate creativity, knowledge sharing and collaboration [4], [10]. Personal digital fabrication is getting increasing attention from various fields like education, engineering, innovation, design, humanitarian aid or regional development [6], [1], [7], [3]. However, integrating Fab Lab environments into academic education is still challenging in practice. In Germany, more than 200 such creative community spaces exist [5]; around 15 of these are associated with universities. Most are initiated and run by single entities such as student groups or university chairs and are not integrated in the universities' overall organizational matters. The federal research project 'FAB101' aims to consolidate organizational and educational knowledge based on experiences in four Fab Labs at German universities [9]. We propose a workshop to share and discuss results, to open up our research to a European community and to encourage collaboration between academic Lab practitioners.

Das Digitalisierungspotential wird in Hochschulen bislang unzureichend ausgeschöpft. Gleichzeitig besitzt der Digitalisierungsprozess hohen Stellenwert. In der Verwaltung wie in Lehre und Forschung spielt der Einsatz digi-taler Werkzeuge eine zunehmende Rolle. Auch die Organisation von außercurricularen Veranstaltungen nimmt an Hochschulen stetig zu. Dabei können die Zielgruppen stark divergieren. Besonders für Mitarbeitende sind die Qualifizierungsmaßnahmen von hohem Interesse, da sie den Karriereweg nachhaltig prägen. Die Einführung eines hochschulweiten Veranstaltungsmanagementsystems bietet die Chance nachhaltiger Personalentwicklung. Dabei entsteht ein digitales Netzwerk zwischen beteiligten Einrichtungen, Abteilungen und Fachbereichen. Das diverse Angebot kann somit effizienter koordiniert und beworben werden. Die Teilnehmenden können in ihrem Trainingsprofil erkennen, welche Veranstaltungen sie bereits besucht haben. Dieses Wissen kann in speziellen Karrierecoachings zielsicher genutzt werden. Der Praxisbericht gibt nach einer Einführung in das Wissensma-nagement in der Personalentwicklung Einblick in die Chancen und Risiken bei der Einführung eines hochschul-weiten Veranstaltungsmanagementsystems am Beispiel der Universität Kassel.
