I'd assumed the LAB is no longer. I have two thoughts as to why it was created in the first place and why it's no longer active.
1. Andy Palmer gave it birth and believed in it. It has languished since his departure.
2. Conspiracy angle, it was created as a PR stunt to placate users as much as possible and thereby limit Nissan's liability once they realized they'd be on the hook to resolve battery issues.
I want to believe the Andy Palmer angle. Not sure I'm right to do so.
