KBCon Interactive Learning Environment

KBCon is one of three Interactive Learning Environments on campus that serve to provide creative zones for dynamic and innovative meetings between students, teachers, and researchers.

KBCon [kay'bee'cee'on], the Interactive Learning Environment at KBC, is a set of premises with integrated communication technologies that provide dynamic meeting places for a wide range of event types.

KBCon aims to enable and improve researchers’ ability to spontaneously present and discuss complex datasets and models, locally and internationally. Secondly, KBCon aims to improve the ability of core facilities to communicate their services and recruit users. Lastly, KBCon aims to enhance the visibility of research and careers in science to students from all levels. KBCon shares a common communications action plan with the other two Interactive Learning Environments at Umeå University (Common Ground and MIT-place) that includes outreach to departments, web-site development, and digital signage.

KBCon activities

Every other Tuesday one of the KBC infrastructures will have a short presentation of its facilities, possibilities and services. After the presentation there is plenty of time for discussions.
