Coolab is a cooperative dedicated to creating autonomous telecommunications infrastructure. It values the effective use of spectrum in the context of contemporary and diverse cultures where socio-technical thinking is required, in an effort to reduce technological alienation and bridge the digital gap. 

Considering that both analogue and digital technologies share the potential of empowering remote communities, Coolab's aim is to explore new technologies beyond the dominant discourse on digital access, and its research is focused on the development of multiple models of community networks that can be experienced through ethnic, experimental and social uses. Connecting people should be understood as a need to improve local content production and to provide global/local communication as a fundamental human right.
