Lili's Proto Lab

About us

Come. Try. Learn prototyping. Build Ideas. Join the community of makers.

Lili’s Proto Lab (LPL) is a place for you to test your creative ideas and materialize them into a working prototype. From 3D printing and laser cutting to microfluidics and robotics, in the LPL you get to practice various prototyping methods and operate these tools. The LPL mentoring programme helps your team in managing your prototyping process and brings you in touch with experts from across all disciplines at the Science faculty. Our ambition is to build a community of all those creative and enthusiastic people who like to learn by doing and all those who are willing to support them. By organizing training and mentoring projects, we support students, researchers, and student teams, in their challenge-based projects. We support projects from all UU strategic areas of fundamental science, education, open science, and sustainability. Our instruments are low-key and accessible for general use. In the LPL community, we share our most valuable assets: our ideas and our knowledge.
