Why attend?

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 organise satellite meetings.

Topics: transversal issues concerning, Core Facilities in Life Sciences (CFLS)

  • New technologies and methodologies developed by and with Life Science core facilities
  • Project & data management and quality control in and by Life Science core facilities
  • Core facility administrative, human resource and financial management
