Zorglab 360° Care Lab, Keramiekstraat 80, 9000 Ghent
Listen to researchers from different fields talk about their research at this joint onsite event in Ghent, together with our partner Noldus. We will showcase an array of solutions designed to measure human behavior in diverse scenarios. After the sessions, we will continue the discussions over lunch, which all registrants are invited to join.
This high-tech facility features three multi-functional 'Labs' designed to cater to students, instructors, researchers, and professionals in the healthcare field. The Zorglab aims to foster cross-disciplinary interactions and bridge gaps between research, service delivery, and education. It provides a safe environment for aspiring healthcare and wellness workers to master non-technical skills within an interprofessional context. The lab also serves as a hub for researchers and professionals looking to refine their practices or develop new methodologies, particularly in enhancing non-technical skills such as teamwork, leadership, situation awareness and communication. The state-of-the-art technology and adaptable spaces allow for realistic simulations and extensive hands-on training.
