Thanks to our partners, the Paperless Lab Academy® has reprogrammed the VIII European edition to April 2021.

The Paperless Lab Academy® is the ideal learning platform for all companies that own a laboratory, involved in running, consolidating, integrating or simplifying laboratory data management processes.

Everything you always wanted to know about Scientific Data Management

Once again, we´re setting the stage for discussions on strategies and implementation of 21st-century technologies in your laboratory.

We work on an agile combination of future horizon views, already running in some industries, and tangible real cases on how to solve today’s concerns.  For this, we build an agenda composed of keynote speakers from the industry sharing their experience and project status, workshops of our sponsors presenting their latest offering to support your specific needs, networking opportunities to gather deeper information from the attendees and presenters.
