Mobile Research Lab – In Planning
After being granted major instrumental funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG), the FBZ psychophysiological, behavioral observation and eye-tracking/VR lab technology and infrastructure is being implemented into an equivalent state-of-the-art mobile solution, housed in a large custom equipped transporter. From spring 2023, our scientists will be able cover the entire spectrum of experimental research at any location - for example at schools, hospitals or day care. The project also includes driving safety training for our researchers who will be on the road with the mobile lab.
The spatial flexibility improves the representativeness of our studies: we aim to reach people who have rarely participated in previous studies, in particular children and people with a low level of education. Therefore, we expect to investigate even more precisely how, for example, mental illness and socioeconomic status are linked.
