Organisation profile

VILA stands for VIdeo research Lab Aalborg University - a cross-faculty initiative supported through DIGHUMLAB theme 3 and the Department of Learning and Philosophy. VILA brings together experts from several research domains at Aalborg University working with digital video production and analysis to facilitate knowledge creation and sharing of best practices across research communities who work with video data collection, production and analysis – local and nationally.

VILA’s aims are

  • To provide a visible platform to support the video research community at Aalborg University and further, connect and support research colleagues at national and international levels.

  • To house and support several AAU research groups, including the Techno-Anthropology Video Lab, e-Learning Lab – Center for User Driven Innovation, Learning and Design, Mattering: A Centre for Discourse & Practice and Centre for Discourses in Transition and provide opportunities to connect with other groups working with video within and beyond Denmark.

  • To host visitors working in this field to conduct seminars or workshops, to provide opportunities for external researchers to share their own video data and to search and research archived video data at AAU, provide training, and share best practices.


VILA has three focal areas:

  1. Support and training of advanced competencies using software aided data collection and analysis,
  2. Development of resources for mobile video data collection, and
  3. Establishing secure and safe video data storage and archives and related resources.
