Open BioLab Graz offers free access to experimentation and research. The association connects people from technical and scientific disciplines, ranging from chemistry to biology to telematics, and provides a laboratory and relevant infrastructure with free access around the clock, to facilitate the implementation of ideas and the development of interdisciplinary and independent research projects outside of university structures. Additionally, the cost-effective production of laboratory equipment for personal requirements is promoted, while knowledge is shared according to the open source principles. Through cooperative work and learning from and with each other, ideas and talents can be expanded and developed in an open environment. A makerspace in cooperation with the hackerspace realraum is envisioned for autumn 2013.
