Why should I participate?

Where is the lab?

The lab is located in the Idiap/Vatel building, in the basement. The room number is S01, and is located close to the Vatel computer room. When you get out of the elevators, turn right.

How will my personal data be protected?

The study follows Swiss regulations in terms of personal data protection. Your data will be anonymized by using participant identifiers that cannot be linked to your name. Vatel School is not interested in your personal data, and will not have access to it. Rather, the School is hoping that you benefit from the feedback and training experience through your participation in the study. 

Is my participation voluntary?


Can I do the study in French?
