Following the tremendous success of the Demonstrator Lab at the VU campus, the Amsterdam knowledge institutes have decided to launch a new location at Amsterdam Science Park. The new location will be situated in the heart of the UvA Faculty of Science’s laboratories, on the ground floor of building D. The reconstruction of the lab space is currently scheduled for September-November, after which the Demonstrator Lab @ Amsterdam Science Park will immediately open shop. A core support team has been assembled, and several concrete first projects have already been identified. More information will be disseminated in the coming months. Until then, you can contact Peter van der Donk at IXA-UvA if you have any questions.
