Media in laboratory

On Sept. 21st 2016, the Department of Information Technology in cooperation with PUE’s Business Press Office organized a press conference, at which three new scientific laboratories prepared within the “InnoUEP” project have been presented. During the conference media correspondents could see how research is being conducted in a digital world and personally “immerse themselves” in virtual reality. A number of interviews with the Lab team members have been conducted.
