Agendas, delegate lists and 400+ presentations from all of our recent Conferences and workshops can be found in our Public Dropbox Folder. This includes: 

  • 40-50 presentations from each of our 2016 events: The Effective Laboratory: Scotland in March, Laboratory Equipment and Services at Rothamsted Research in June, and Laboratories of the Future at the University of Nottingham on Sept 21. The latter coincided with, and had presentations on, the new Carbon-Neutral GSK Sustainable Chemistry Laboratory.
  • Almost 100 presentations from our Sept 2015 Conference at the University of Leeds, which had 420 attendees.

Many of the above events featured short-listed applications for past S-Lab Awards – see details here. The 2017 shortlist - many of which will be the focus of presentations at the York event - will soon be available here.
