CTLS 2016 aims to bring together not only scientists, technicians and managers, but also decision makers and opinion leaders involved in Core Technology facilities and resource laboratories in all fields of Life Science. Building on the success of CTLS 2014 held at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, this meeting will be a unique opportunity to listen and discuss with colleagues and peers about challenges and solutions on all scientific, technological, managerial funding, educational and community building aspects of core facilities and infrastructures.

Keynote lectures will provide the big picture of this dynamic field, complimented by five plenary sessions comprising both oral and poster presentations, which will allow presenters and attendees to explore and discuss issues concerning European core facilities and infrastructures. There will also be ample opportunity for existing and prospective core facility networks or interest groups to organize satellite meetings at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre (application to be made to the organizing committee).
