Chemistry, Engineering & Physical Science
The Conference has five relevant case studies of new and refurbished facilities:
Learning from Pharma: The GlaxoSmithKline Carbon-Neutral Laboratories for Sustainable Chemistry at The University of Nottingham.
Fostering Interdisciplinary Academic and Industry Collaboration and Innovation at the Central Teaching Labs at the University of Liverpool.
High Performance Rebirth for Interdisciplinary Research at Cornell’s Kimball Hall.
Effective, Efficient and Sustainable Laboratories at the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.
Designing for Industry Innovation: The Technology and Innovation Centre at the University of Strathclyde.
If at an early stage of design then some of the thematic sessions, such as costing of designs and fume cupboards and ventilation, described in the estates and Engineering and Value for Money sections should be of interest.
For those more focused on life science laboratory operation relevant sessions described in the Equipment and Services, Technical Support and Value for Money sections include many kinds of new equipment; chemical inventories, core facilities; energy and water efficiency; ELN and LIMS; fume cupboards and other containment devices; gas safety; heating, stirring and temperature control; lean labs; pH measurement; space costing and management; water purity; and technical careers and skills.
