As ever technical staff are at the heart of the Conference. In addition to the many case studies described in the Life Science/Medicine and Chemistry, Engineering and Physical Science sections of this web site, and sessions on lab operation described in the Equipment and Services, Energy and Environmental Improvement, and Value for Money sections (and also available in a single document via the Conference Dropbox folder), two additional sessions focus on careers and skills:
Future Skills: The Challenges for Science and Innovation.
Technical Resources in Universities and Science Parks - A Toolkit to Map Needs and Skills, Build Capacity and Support Career Development. (Final outputs of the HEFCE-funded Technical Development and Modernisation project).
