Description The Innovation Lab is a physical space that encourages quick elaboration and testing of innovative ideas and collaboration. Many ideas need the so called “attic environment” to grow. The Innovation Lab offers this facility. In the Innovation Lab, statisticians can work on laptops and desktop PCs without the restrictions imposed by the closed internal network and its standard workstations. This makes it easier to test new methods, try out non-standard software, and simulate alternative statistical processes. The Innovation Lab can also be used as a collaboration space. Every piece of furniture is on wheels, which makes the use of space very flexible. It can be used either as a single space or divided in up to three separate workspaces. This makes the Innovation Lab a suitable environment for brainstorm sessions, workshops, informal presentations and open coffees etc. The Innovation Lab stimulates collaboration between different fields of expertise.
