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 ambitious, 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 was started in April 2014 to be concluded in October 2014, with the admission of 74 participants to the CLab Gym and 9 ideas to the CLab Challenge, promoted by as many groups and 34 participants. The selected ideas are geared to promoting social life on campus, products and services for the land, the environment and energy, digital craftsmanship.
The launch of the selection for the second edition is planned in September 2014, in conjunction with the "Researchers' Night 2014". Applications must be submitted online until 26 October 2014 and the activities will start at the beginning of November 2014.
