The NUMEDIART Lab was inaugurated in July 2010, with the goal of providing researchers with a “full digital” environment for testing digital art technologies in realistic performance conditions.
It is also used for teaching digital art technology at the Bachelor and Master level, and as a rehearsal space for performances and concerts.
