The main aim of the HUME lab is to support and encourage new research projects using the experimental method. We provide and further develop expertise focused on the usage of innovative research techniques in the Social Sciences and Humanities.
To apply for the services and support, fill-out this FORM. We will contact you to provide further information and discuss specific terms of colaboration.
Tha lab spaces are highly transformable to allow for a broad range of experimental designs and needs. Research project approval must be obtained before the lab spaces can be used for individual research (find the details of the process here).
Apart from the main use for data collection, the labs can also be used for educational and presentation purposes. Contact us to consult other than research use.
The list of available equipment and software can be found here. Research project approval must be obtained before any of the equipment can be used for individual research (find the details of the process here). For usage on human participants, the researchers are also obliged to seek the approval by the Ethics Commitee for research. The usage of the specialised equipment is free of charge for the members of HUME Lab Research Consortium and researchers from the Faculty of Arts. Renting fees for other researchers are set individually, depending on he specific format of the colaboration.
Research project approval and the approval by the Ethics Commitee for research must be obtained before data collection (find the details of the process here). Experienced interns and student-helpers assist with the organisational aspects of experiment research as well as with data collection and basic processing.
We aim to provide support for any methodological and technical issue encountered in the research process. For advanced consutations, we try to find suitable external advisors.
For students and researchers seeking to learn both basic and advanced methods we offer a range of short workshops and courses. We also organize talks by expert researchers, focused on specific topics and methods. To find out more about the planned activities, see the calendar (information is also available on our Facebook feed).
For individual students we offer both long- and short-term internship in the lab. The interns will have the opportunity to learn by doing by taking part in different research projects, collaborating with both researchers and the infrastructure core support team. To apply, please fill this FORM.
From theoretical introductions into the experimental method for students or staff to special equipment demonstrations, we aim to introduce both the methodology and opportunities to a broad audience.
