What is the Paperless Lab Academy about? At the PLA we set the stage for discussions on strategies and implementation of 21th century technologies in the laboratory. It is about discussing key milestones to generate solid business insights from the laboratory, connecting with colleagues who share similar operational issues as you have, learning about user's case studies and how they are deployed into their processes, discovering the informatics trends from cutting-edge thought leaders, being in the know about the last informatics tools and methodologies in a creative and productive atmosphere.

PLA2018 has been a very interesting experience for me. I´ve learned on other markets´ initiatives which could potentially be of interest for my company´s journey. It has given me the opportunity to discuss further with the speakers to expand on my understanding. I am already looking for projects internally based on the learnings from PLA. I can honestly say that I got a lot out of it.

Had a great time at the PLA2017. I really like the close interaction between attendees and the vendors. The forum provides a chance to really interact on a personal level–I like that. Enjoyed my time, and hope to come again.

The Paperless Lab Academy is an essential networking event for all involved in the automation of laboratories. I found it a great way to connect with others facing the same decisions and operational issues as me – and of course, learning how other industries dealt with them. Having easy access to the major vendors also helped enormously in laying out our Digital roadmap. I would thoroughly recommend this event.

Coming from outside the Laboratory area I found the conference to be very informative and by listening to the various speakers both Industry and Vendors I gained a good insight into where Laboratory systems are going system wise and gained an understanding of the challenges they face in the current environment.

The Paperless Lab creates a highly creative atmosphere for system providers and end-users to brainstorm together. I have hardly ever seen this at any other places. Discussing your solution or integration idea with colleagues and friends is what makes this event so valuable.
