Making Innovative Spaces for Makers, Innovators, and Entrepreneurs | UBTech Conference

Making Innovative Spaces for Makers, Innovators, and Entrepreneurs

Whether you’re building a new facility, or renovating an existing one, you likely have many unanswered questions: How should it look and feel? How do you design, build, and support innovative spaces that inspire makers and entrepreneurs? How do you leverage student voices, and create partnerships within the campus and beyond? How can you promote your spaces to current students and new recruits? 

Hear from two universities as they share their recent projects, successes, challenges, and lessons learned including the EXLAB at Georgia State University, and the University of Oklahoma’s 20,000-square-foot Innovation Hub, launched in September 2016, which includes a Digital Fabrication Lab, a Visualization Zone, Collaboration Spaces, Software Development Core, and a full slate of engaging program and training opportunities focused on increasing innovation and entrepreneurship across the University as well as the broader community.
