SciLifeLab platforms visit Göteborg

To raise awareness of the technologies and expertise offered to researchers from all of Sweden, SciLifeLab organizes visits to universities around Sweden. During spring 2016, we will visit both Göteborg, March 17, and Umeå, April 6.

During these visits, you will get the opportunity to listen to platform presentations and hear real-life examples from current users of the platform’s facilities. A selection of the platforms represented will also arrange workshops or one-to-one meetings to stimulate discussions and answer questions regarding their services.

Register here
 The last day for registration is March 9.
(If the lecture hall is not full you are welcome to join even without a registration, however no lunch or coffee is included).
