TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION LAB
Lab26 was born on the idea to establish a startup that operates as a Technology Innovation Lab with strong entrepreneurial culture. We also empower collaboration of students, academics, researchers and industry partners on real-life projects.
At Lab26 we innovate on different smart technology solutions, but all of them have to bring value to users and have to have a business opportunity.
But why we are different?
We are a combination of a technology lab, research institute and a start-up. We operate with a startup agility and we are driven by entrepreneurial mindset when developing new technology solutions.
Our team is diverse and consists of designers, engineers, developers and business people. But special importance is given to students, offering them new knowledge and opportunity for a better future.
It’s not just about the technology. It’s about creating value with it!
We are stimulating the creativity of young people, developing their competences and encourage them not to be just the developers, but to be TECH ENTREPRENEURS!
We have a strong domain knowledge in digital solutions and maritime industry. We combine this two fields to develope new solutions.
Sensorics, automation, robotics and data analytics make maritime industry smart.
Smart solutions for safe port operations, predictive maintenance, monitoring processes, devices and machinery.
Monitoring goods, smart warehouses and supply chains IoT.
Connected mobility solutions, GPS tracking, traffic monitoring.
Our team consist of highly trained professionals that work closely with students on solutions development.
