Research Institute
Proposal status: Draft (under way)
Proposed by: AndiG88
Tagging: amenity=research_institute
Applies to:
Definition: A research institute is an establishment endowed for doing research

Draft started: 2015-01-13

Previous proposals

This draft was written in 2015, i.e. 7 years after a similar proposal Proposed features/research_institution (note: institution, not institute) was rejected in 2008 with a 11:7 vote.

However, this 'institute' value has been growing organically in particular since 2015 and is well documented in currently 8 languages worldwide.

Please note that the tag office=research has a different scope than amenity=research_institute, the latter can comprise large scale technical installations such as a Particle Accelerator, a Research reactor, or a test drive area for research on autonomous driving, which can hardly be described as offices.
