EPS LAB

Polytechnic School

EPS LAB is a space where companies in the region can conduct quantitative and qualitative market research, with an objective public such as university students. The main objective is to favour university and business relations.

What is the EPS LAB?

EPS LAB is an activity promoted by the Polytechnic Board of Trustees and managed by the Polytechnic School. EPS LAB will enable Girona's business fabric to make the most of the university's presence to obtain input during the launch process of new products or services and thereby offer the market better products, packaging, services, etc.through the preview quality testing and feedback it will receive from university students grouped by the company. Participants will be mainly between the ages of 18 and 30 years old, mostly from selected disciplines and genders, although meetings may also be held with the lecturers themselves depending on the enterprise’s needs.

For further information, you can listen to the FEM Girona interview with Mr Gerard Lechuga, the promoter of the Polytechnic Board of Trustees (radio) or visit the Association’s website .
