The Lab

The Lab will have a physical room at Heidelberg university (to be announced soon), conceived as a discussion space and workspace. It will be equipped with cutting-edge technology, including work stations, a supercomputer, a 3D printer, a presentation space, books, a coffee machine, and more.

The Lab will be staffed by one or two student workers and will be open to the community at fixed hours that will be announced here.

Location and opening hours

The location of the Lab and the opening hours will be announced here soon.


The list of equipment available at the Lab will be announced here soon.
