The Harvard Innovation Labs has always been a hub for inventive thinking. Please work with us to maintain the connections that make our labs such a vital space. As we make changes to keep our community healthy, we’ll continually update this page with the latest information.
You can follow the latest updates on University-wide efforts to combat the coronavirus on the main Harvard Coronavirus Information website.
Dear Harvard Innovation Labs community,
As we shift into virtual spaces, we’re learning not only how to communicate and work more effectively across distances, but how to care for each other across them, too. For now, that means taking precautions to ensure everyone’s safety by moving i-lab operations fully online.
Starting on Monday, March 23, all programming, meetings, and operations will continue virtually, and ventures will not have access to Batten Hall.
As we make this transition, we’re so encouraged by how members and teams have adapted to this new way of being. We’re particularly inspired by the handful of ventures who have pivoted toward the challenge presented by COVID-19 and are working to improve testing, treatment, and safety. And we’re especially grateful to our security and cleaning staff for all of their efforts to keep the i-lab safe.
We understand that your needs and priorities may have shifted dramatically in the past few weeks. We will continue to make as many of our resources available to you as possible, and we will aim to anticipate and respond to your needs to help you flourish and thrive. If you have ideas of how we can better support you in this time, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you and your loved ones are safe, and we look forward to seeing how your ventures are making our world a better place. Our community is a resilient one. Let’s stay connected.
All my best,
Bruce and Bridgitt Evans Executive Director
Harvard Innovation Labs
