In this paper, we review the existing state of current Norwegian university makerspaces, and what is unique and common to all of them. The participating makerspaces will help discover the impacts they have on education, research, society and innovation rates, as well as the best practices. The paper will highlight experiences from Makeriet, a pilot makerspace at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (HiOA) at the faculty of Technology, Art and Design (TKD), a highly multidisciplinary faculty, that encapsulated technology, art and design disciplines.
