The courses and taking an active part in the building process of the research facilities, i.e. both the laboratory building itself and the installation of the necessary equipment are important steps to attain involvement. Building the laboratory and installing the measurement equipment not only results in an existing lab, it simultaneously educates the participating researchers and gives them a feeling of responsibility. The person who installs the data logger system becomes the local “logger expert “. Recipients are allowed to carry out their own research, also in other fields. The flexibility of the lab to meet local requirements is fundamental. Flexible sensors and data loggers were chosen in order to meet these demands. Flexible equipment can be used for future research regarding, for instance, wind power or different combustion techniques.
