Successful Satellite Symposium at NLSDays
On Monday the 10th of September, SciLifeLab hosted the satellite symposium SciLifeLab as a national resource for life science, in which almost 200 representatives from academia, industry and public sector in Europe, China and US took part.
The symposium was organized as a part of the Nordic Life Science Days 2018 and focused on introducing SciLifeLab facilities and technologies, as well as letting participants know how to leverage the unique asset of SciLifeLab services. An exhibition of SciLifeLab facilities were put on during the day, and a number of representatives from both SciLifeLab, industry and public sector gave presentations.
