HATLAB is the innovation space where new projects, MVPs, and pilots or proofs of concept are created before they go into the HAT live environment.
HATLAB supports a community, all of whom are working on HAT-related projects. We catalyse collaborations with government, universities, industry, and startups.
HATLAB brings together people interested in the design and creation of all kinds of artefacts on the HAT. These can include apps, tools, plugs, a set of legal rights, a framework for permissions, a machine learning algorithm, or a method.
HATLAB is also the knowledge and education hub of the HAT ecosystem. We host educational and outreach events and executive programmes.
