In today’s world, TVET students need to be equipped with modern skills in the fields of innovation, technology, entrepreneurship and digitalization. However, access to modern technology to provide practical learning experiences can be challenging. To address this, the global FabLab network offers small-scale workshops with the newest technological equipment available to use by individuals and industry. FabLabs allow testing of equipment or creating of products without the cost of investing in technology. In Norway, the Verket FabLab is one example of how a FabLab can successfully be implemented thanks to the close cooperation between the private sector, Østfold county, and TVET providers.
