Hackteria ZET – Open Science Lab in Zürich

Since summer 2020 we have initiated a new local programme in Switzerland under the name «Hackteria – Zentrum für Experimentelle Transdisziplinarität» and we proudly started a new space, as part of Bitwäscherei shared hackerspace collective, with dedicated facilities for the «Open Science Lab».

A laboratory, a social learning space, a place of work and research, a transdisciplinary meeting point for designers, hackers, artist, foodies and fermentation activitists.

Open Science Lab

The new lab has already attracted a lot of interests over the last months and a regular programme of weekly meetings, discussion panels and dedicated workshops on life science related topics for artists is being developed. In the time of the pandemic due to COVID-19 and the restrictions on travel and events, we have developed various tools for «hybrid» learning events, combining both the physical lab, streaming video equipment and our online 2D virtual world using the open source software workadventure.
