What is Omnia Makerspace

Omnia Makerspace is an open hub for creative tech-related development and experimentation in Espoo’s Otaniemi, part of the A Grid community.

Technology-focused workshops, study modules, free experimentation, and hands-on learning are at the core of the operations.

Omnia Makerspace is particularly suitable for Omnia’s learners and staff, A Grid startups, the BusinessEspoo network, and anyone interested in the region’s product development and manufacturing innovation.

In Omnia Makerspace, 3D printers, robotics, a vinyl printer, a laser cutter, construction kits suitable for electronics assembly, as well as, for example, a soldering table and virtual reality devices are available. Additionally, there is a media studio for activities like podcast recording or taking small product photos.
