In light of the updated measures concerning the Corona virus, the Network Institute has decided to extend the suspension of all activity at its labs until at least September 1, 2020. This means that there can be no research or education until that data at any of our physical lab locations (MediaLab at the Main Building, Game Cella’ at the Transitorium building). We plan on opening the Tech Labs at their new location in the NU building on the 7th floor, B-wing in September. More news will follow.
We’ve made this decision because of the nature of most (if not all) of the research that normally takes place at our labs. Implementing correct Social Distancing and providing proper decontamination of all of our equipment is something we are working on at the moment. We have been working on a specific protocol for using the Tech Labs in collaboration with specialists inside and outside the VU. Although our protocol still has to be tested at the actual NU building labs, the current version (0.9) is available for anyone to download here.
Our technical support for advise, development and testing custom made solution for your research is still available as always. Many researcher are opting for on-line based research. Research the Tech Labs can help with by giving advise about how to tackle your on-line research, developing robust and state-of-the-art web applications and integrating this into your favorite on-line research platform.
So do not hesitate to contact us! We don’t mind answering your questions!
