SiLA Workshop@ELRIG-Drug Discovery 2017

The Way to the Next Generation Lab of the Future -
What, Why, How?

October 4th, 09:00am – 13:15pm, Liverpool Conference Center

From laborious data transfer and incorrect user settings, to poor utilization and uptime, the lab today can be a frustrating place to work!

The future promises to be bright, but what will the lab look like? Can our labs benefit from the revolution of the Internet of Things and concepts from Industry 4.0?

Join us for 4 highly-interactive linked sessions over a morning, each led by industry leaders, taking us on the journey to the lab of the future.

Each session will propose a vision of what is cutting edge in each area and attendees will debate that vision and how best to prepare for it in a fun and interactive way.

For more information and free registration visit: ELRIG-Drug Discovery 2017

We look forward to see you there!
