FABlab Namibia is the first advanced manufacturing, prototyping and design lab in Namibia and the largest FABlab currently within Africa. The lab was established in partnership with the Ministry of Trade and Industry to enhance local product competitiveness, bridge the technological divide through access to Information Communication Technology (ICT), new machinery, tools, knowledge, skills and equipment – ultimately to give rise to a technologically and creatively advanced local economy.
The Vision and Mission of FABlab are:
To be the greatest creativity and technology hub as the key pro-Africa resource and tangible output entity.
To be the inspirational leading force enabling all Namibians with the knowledge, tools and creativity to become the leaders in advanced technology uptake, sustainability and pioneering product development globally.
Through its mandate, the FABlab is actively promoting the uptake of technology skills, access to modern tools and equipment, use of raw materials within Namibia for new products. The goal is in essence to thereby ensure value-addition happens inside country borders rather than importation of value added products into Namibia as is so often the case in African countries. This follows on the National theme – “growth at home”.
