1- scientific computing worldDuring the latest Paperless Lab Academy, a two-day event held in Barcelona in April 2016, Deputy Editor at Europa Science Ltd Robert Roe learnt the key challenges for the lab industry are data integrity, process improvement, and being able to manage data effectively, as indicated in Scientific Computing World’s (SCW) “Picking up the pace at PLA” article.

In addition to these three key challenges - argues the article from SCW, the only global publication dedicated to the computing and information technology needs of scientists and engineers -  we should bear in mind what  innovation implies.

“ A real innovation requires users to change their mindset, to manage the adoption of new technologies efficiently, and in some cases, to redefine how and why informatics data is captured ”

The article builds on five main points:

  1. increasing data integrity
  2. management complexities
  3. project unification
  4. driving efficiency through process improvement
  5. putting a price on change
