Welcome to the Contamination Lab Cosenza
A Contamination Lab (CLab) is an open space, characterized for an informal environment, where students and graduates from different areas can interact, work as a team, gain and share knowledge, in a stimulating environment to develop innovative projects with business, cultural or social contents.
CLab Cosenza is promoted by the University of Calabria and funded by the National Operational Program Research and Competitiveness 2007/2013. The main purpose of the CLab is to actively involve a large number of students and teachers from all disciplinary areas in basic training and "warm up” projects (CLab Gym) and in the development of more ambitiou, innovative, and interdisciplinary projects (CLab Challenge).
The activities are developed over six-month periods. Participants are selected among dynamic, competent and motivated students and graduates, with a particular attention to foreign students (a 10% share is reserved to foreign students).
The first cycle takes place in the 1st half of 2014 with a particular focus on issues related to: Makers, Social Innovation, Hi-Tech.
The participants in the first cycle were selected on the basis of skills, experience and entrepreneurial ideas presented in the application form and of an interview - in the form of a short presentation (merit ranking).
