Discussion about UValladolid

(Yolanda Calvo Conde) #1

The University of Valladolid is a Spanish public University, founded in 1241 (the second oldest in Spain). He teaches undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate studies, with seven campuses distributed in Valladolid, Palencia, Soria and Segovia. Among its areas of knowledge are: Engineering and Technology Architecture, Biomedical and Health Sciences, Experimental Sciences and Social, Legal and Humanities Sciences.
In addition, its General Foundation has an Innovation Department that hosts the OTRI (Office of Research Results Transfer) where the FabLab constitution has been carried out. The OTRI is responsible for collecting all the knowledge generated by the educational community of the University (professors, research groups, students, etc.) and transfer them to society through innovation projects.

One of the missions of FabLab UValladolid, among others, is to facilitate the development of these projects through their resources, both in terms of training and prototype manufacturing. In this way, our FabLab favors creativity by providing individuals with digital manufacturing tools. For this the FabLab UValladolid is divided into different areas:

• Classroom Workshop / Training
• 3d print
• Classroom Cad / Scaner 3D
• Printing / Stamping vinyl
• 2D / 3D Machining / Cutting
• Electronic / Robotics Workshop

In each of the zones there is complementary machinery, a simpler and low cost machine for learning and another professional to carry out complex functional prototypes.

This is the general thread for discussing the lab; the thread is also visible on its page at https://www.fablabs.io/labs/uvalladolid
