Paperless Lab Academy® goes Digital

Welcome to the new initiative of the Paperless Lab Academy® platform. We wanted to build on the momentum created during the congress editions and provide continuity along the year so that you could find interesting and stimulating information and discussions about transforming your Laboratory, Research and Quality processes.

What you should expect to find 

Topics rank from basic to experts levels about scientific data management, lab informatics solutions, new concepts and methodologies, digital optimisation and strategies for mastering your data and extract the maximum insights from them.
Presenters are users, experts and through  leaders from diverse industries.
The material offered here is a combination of Webinar organised by the Academy that also includes a list of webinars from our partners.

Academy webinar Accenture

Intelligent Automation and Digital Transformation in Quality Management
[  Wednesday December 9, 2020 | 07 am PST| 10:00 am EST | 4 pm CET |08:30 pm IST ]   
Presented by Mary Mrowicki, Neil Fausz, Peter Brandstetter from Accenture 
Moderated by Isabel Muñoz-Willery owner & organiser of the Paperless Lab Academy®

This Academy Webinar presentation from Accenture is about the new challenges faced in the Pharmaceutical Industry. Before the global pandemic, the industry was already facing problems of exploding drug development costs and increasingly complex supply chain and regulatory environments, as well as downward price pressure from generics, global health systems and outcome-based pricing models. The unprecedented challenges of the pandemic forcing remote work and demanding tests, vaccines and therapies at desperate speed, only add to the challenges. To date, Quality has throttled speed to market and been a necessary, but precious, cost. Today’s business cannot afford the reactive, manual and still largely paper-based Quality processes.

In this session, it will be discusses how companies can make this shift. Which challenges the industry must address, examples of real world progress, and road maps to adoption to help get your organization to the digital Quality future.

Accenture webinar

Digital QC Transformation and Accelerated Batch Release 
[ Now On-Demand | Recorded  Thursday,  29 October 2020 ] 

Presented by Barry Heavey, Dermot O´Callaghan, Don Rainville  from Accenture 
Moderated by Isabel Muñoz-Willery owner & organiser of the Paperless Lab Academy®

This Academy Webinar presentation from Accenture is about helping clients gather data and facilitate an electronic batch record, resulting in less stress, and less time to release the batch. This presentation and discussion will explore the imperative for digital transformation in the context of the pharmaceutical laboratory, plant and supply chain – all in the context of the exceptional times and new digital normal we are all adapting to.

Merck Lanexo Webinar

Unleash your Lab´s Productivity 
[ Now On-Demand | Recorded September 17, 2020 ] 

Presented by Christian-H. Kuechenthal, Head of Business Franchise, Lab Management Tools Life Science | Connected Lab Promise Venture
Moderated by Isabel Muñoz-Willery owner & organiser of the Paperless Lab Academy®

This Academy Webinar presentation from Merck is about the opportunities to  improve productivity, compliance, and safety in laboratory management through digitalisation. Mr. Kuechental will discuss about the reasons why traditional lab management is still wasting time and energy and how to overcome most challenges.

Why the Digital laboratory is the next business innovation Imperative
[Now On-Demand | Recorded July 16, 2020] 

Presented by Mark Fish, Managing director at Accenture 
Moderated by Isabel Muñoz-Willery owner & organiser of the Paperless Lab Academy®

This Academy Webinar presentation is based on Accenture research on digital transformation in the lab, sharing the key enablers for connecting labs, areas of focus for innovation, and steps to chart your own course to digital lab excellence.  
Mark Fish will also share insights and practical examples from clients and technology ecosystem partners on how ‘life in the laboratory’ has been transformed by bringing Information Technology breakthroughs into scientific labs.

Academy webinar_ dassault systèmes

How to Boost your Batch Release
[Now On-Demand | Recorded July 8, 2020] 

Presented by Margaux Soulès, Industry process consultant at Dassault Systèmes
Moderated by Isabel Muñoz-Willery owner & organiser of the Paperless Lab Academy®

Most of the labs in QC are electronic already today. But usually this means that LIMS and LES are ubiquitous but remain disconnected, with data in silos. These silos require manual data transfer to and from other systems, which leads to errors and inefficiencies which lead to delays in the batch release.

In this webinar, we will show how BIOVIA’s integrated QC lab informatics solution operates, how it benefits from integration, connectivity and standardisation and how it improves the batch release process and compliance.

webinar food innovation

Food Innovation goes Digital
Presented by Rik Pepermans, founder at Rik Pepermans Consulting, moderated by Isabel Muñoz-Willery owner & organiser of the Paperless Lab Academy®

The food economy is bigger and more diverse than you probably assume. Moreover, there is more innovation for the food economy happening than the statistics suggest, but it´s not always traditional science. Chemistry is a good example of the changing role of sciences in food R&D. As a consequence, an Electronic Lab Notebook, #ELN, is still a good start to digitalise a food lab, but must be fit for the industry.

How a paperless approach can help Data Integrity in a regulated laboratory
Presented by Mr. Bob McDowall, moderated by Isabel Muñoz-Willery owner & organiser of the Paperless Lab Academy®

Data Integrity continues to be the major issue facing regulated laboratories in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.  In this seminar, we looked at results from the assessment of processes and computerised systems and discovered the main issues currently facing regulated laboratories: how to record observations manually, regulatory concerns with the use of blank forms and explore the hybrid system problem. 


FAIR DATA, DATA Catalogs, and the foundations of AI artificial Intelligence 
Presented at the Paperless Lab Academy® 2019 by Mr. Eric Little Chief Data Officer at Osthus.

At the Paperless Lab Academy® 2019, held last spring at the Lake Maggiore, we discuss intensively the archival part of the eData life cycle. Automation of the laboratory processes is all about data management. The technology available nowadays allows definitely easier integration between systems of different type and with instruments and devices too. So many information can be collected adequately and in the most compliant manner. Yet the archiving tends to be seen as the very last step of a data and considered as the last item in a digitalization project.
