The LabBuddy team

LabBuddy is serving more than 10.000 students this year!

November 28, 2018: The dashboard in our office shows the fantastic number of 10.000. Meaning, 10.000 students are using LabBuddy this year to support them in their practicals.

We are very proud reaching this number as we strive for better practical education and in the end students with true researching skills.

LabBuddy celebrates its 10th anniversary!

November 9, 2008: Koos van der Kolk started LabBuddy as a spin-off of his PH.D. degree. His research and drive to improve laboratory education brought him and his team 10 years later at a point where all universities in the Netherlands use his LabBuddy e-learning tool. These universities are still expanding with LabBuddy and new implementations in higher education in the Netherlands and several international universities underline the success and belief that Koos had 10 years ago.

The entire labBuddy team congratulates Koos with this wonderful milestone!

We have celebrated this milestone together with Koos his family, colleagues and a beautiful cake detailed with all the special components that LabBuddy has to offer.
