Press Release #PLA2023EUROPE 10th Edition

Paperless Lab Academy 2023 Europe

The Paperless Lab Academy® project, launched in 2013 with the aim of creating an ideal learning platform for those thinking about consolidating, integrating, and simplifying scientific data management systems, is now the annual congress to attend to stay up to date about digital transformation of the laboratory and quality processes.

Celebrating its 10th European edition, the programme features use cases from project leaders who have been instrumental in driving their organisation’s lab digital transformation. They share their strategy for addressing a specific concern and their experiences along the way.

Digital Data Management discussions at the 10th edition of the Paperless Lab Academy® Europe

At Paperless Lab Academy®, we believe that discussions should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their experience. Therefore, we make sure that the sessions provide enough background knowledge and clear use cases for a good understanding and full benefit of the audience. For this reason, we look for stories about the implementation of lab informatics, but most importantly, innovative approaches that we can share.

This 10th edition looks in more detail at the application of artificial intelligence in the GXP environment and cybersecurity in the life science industry, as well as the automation of QC processes and the projects of global implementation scale…

“I like participating in the PLA because I know I can anticipate what we will be discussing in my company in the coming months” Head of Quality Control, European pharmaceutical company.

Last but not least, the Paperless Lab Academy® would not be possible without its partners, who support each edition and total more than 60 solution and service providers from all editions. They complement the programme with sponsored workshops where their subject matter experts share their knowledge and vision of the industry and present their latest solutions to address specific requirements.

“I am impressed by how the Paperless Lab Academy® event has grown year over year. It is for me an authoritative source of information that helps me stay current with market trends and anything that matters in the industry, not to mention the excellent networking opportunities.

 I found it particularly remarkable for the breadth of topics in the agenda and the quality of the presentations: I am very pleased to see that sessions provided by sponsors, far from being pure sales pitches, provided very useful context and insight on the industry and the market vendors’ ecosystem”  Head of Global Laboratory Execution, Boehringer Ingelheim
