Open Lab / Research Commons

The Open Lab and Research Commons are spaces with environments and facilities that differ from those of laboratories, with the aim of stimulating interaction among researchers, encouraging students' intellectual activities, and promoting collaboration with researchers outside the university.
These spaces are available for group work and disccusion, as well as for conferences and poster exhibitions.
The wall dividing the Open Lab and Research Commons is movable, so they can be used as one area.
