At Maker, we recognize the importance of staying current with the latest trends and initiatives in sustainability and innovation. We are committed to not only advancing our own knowledge and skills but also sharing that knowledge with our members.

These projects enable us to contribute to society and push the boundaries of physical entrepreneurship while also providing valuable insights and resources for our members.



CIRcUIT aims to deliver innovative, circular solutions that can accelerate the circular conversion of construction. The project is anchored in the Municipality of Copenhagen with partners across the EU with Maker involved as a practical partner. Here, among other things, we lead innovation camps with a focus on modular construction that is designed for disassembly.


We are also looking for talents in the Danish entrepreneurial environment who can help design the circular design solutions of the future. Is it you? Then contact us.

With SISCODE, we are helping to investigate and test how co-creation can help push the development and scaling of sustainable community initiatives across the EU. Based on plastic recycling, we have worked on locally rooted recycling and design solutions and have spoken to citizens of Copenhagen, makers, producers of plastic, decision makers and many more to find a model to co-create more sustainable solutions for society.

The project “Circular spaces” is about enhancing maker spaces to circular business principles in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) during a period of 27 months – from January 2023 to March 2025. The goal is to create a partnership of the BSR makerspaces to cooperate in bringing eco-design and material reuse in focus. Also to boost the circular economy by developing a digital circular collaboration tool.

At least 300 makers will be trained and involved in the production of more circular products and at least 6 circular business ideas will be piloted.
