Noldus Meeting: EthoVision and External data

Did you ever wish:

  • To discuss research projects with other behavioral scientists in an informal atmosphere?
  • To learn more about the possibilities of EthoVision or other Noldus solutions?
  • To see EthoVision in action in other research domains? 
  • To learn from other users, and see how they treat problems like yours?
  • To integrate your tracking data with other data streams?

If the answer is yes, then we are happy to receive you during our upcoming Noldus Meeting. This meeting will give you the possibility to meet other researchers, discuss your research projects, to get practical information and to learn how to exploit the full potential of Noldus’ solutions. Besides oral presentations, you will have the possibility to get ‘hands-on’ experience during ‘ateliers’ (workshops) in small groups.
