Following the popularity of the November tours, Alliance Manchester Business School are hosting a second tour of the new Data Visualisation Observatory and Behavioural Research Laboratory. 

The new 3D, large-scale visualisation facility is now available to power data-driven and observational research, engagement and teaching activities at The University of Manchester. It can visualise data and immersive environments via 72 full HD screens delivering 151MP resolution (75MP in 3D), and will help to support your research and develop new insights into data and models.

The new laboratory provides a dedicated space for conducting experiments to study human behaviour across a range of applications concerning business and management. From organisational and consumer behaviour to entrepreneurship, behavioural economics, behavioural finance and strategy – the lab is designed to support state-of-the-art research. The lab will contain 45 networked computers in cubicles designed to allow participants to undertake individual tasks or take part in interactive multiplayer games. It will also contain specialist equipment for eye-tracking and measuring physiological reactions to understand how people, think, feel and act.

Registration is essential.
