A large part of the experimental laboratory research at the University of Erfurt has so far been distributed among three laboratories - the Herrmann-Ebbinghaus Laboratory, the ELab of the Faculty of Economics, Law and Social Sciences and Junior Research Group on Infant Research in Thuringia. Against the background of the increased demand for laboratory capacity across all faculties, particularly in the areas of health communication, educational research and linguistics, the University of Erfurt has now taken a consistent step towards the future: The Erfurt Laboratory for Empirical Research - or ErfurtLab for short - was founded on July 1st 2019. The existing laboratories are now merged, expanded and institutionally anchored in a central one. The most important task of the ErfurtLab is to provide and sustanably enlarge its research resources that meet the highest scientific standards. For this purpose over 400 sqm and 15 rooms for laboratory experiments, surveys, group interviews and other forms of data collection are available.
