Conducting our Research in USA, Brasil and Denmark

Following a year-long collaboration with Novozymes and Labster, last month our industrial PhD Fellow, Sarune Baceviciute has been on the road running user-research workshops with Novozymes employees, investigating learning effectiveness of VR tools for biotech industry training. 

Working hand in hand with head scientists at Novozymes, we held a total of 12 sessions with 97 Novozymes employees in Denmark, Brazil and USA, who were trained with a specifically designed Labster simulation on the topic of the Novozymes-DSM alliance and their newly developed Balancius enzyme.  Half of the participants took VR training with Labster, while the other half were trained using a traditional training method – a video presentation. The study will compare learning outcomes and psychometrics collected during and after the sessions.
