The Hempel Student Innovation Laboratory is established with the support from the Hempel Foundation.
The background is the increasing demand in the world around for new useful products based on innovative thinking and development.
The purpose of the laboratory is therefore to support the students innovative activities with facilities, which make it possible to discover the world of science, to perform individual experiments and to test own ideas in order to realize, if they can carry a scientific and commercial development and if a patent may be necessary to protect the invention.
In order to assist in fulfilment of these goals a new course for potential inventors “Design and test your own product ideas” has been set up.
See more details for this course no. 28410.
The use of the laboratory is open to all students at the Department of Chemical Engineering. However, in order to secure the optimal application of the facilities a special set of rules apply for the laboratory. In addition a personal registration with recommendation from a teacher is necessary to get access.
The laboratory is equipped with a broad range of instruments, tools, glassware and chemicals for physical and chemical experiments. The instruments are often supplied with USB-connections for simple data logging on a computer.
