Who are we

The Paperless Lab Academy is organized by three industry domain experts, who are independent advisors operating from Europe with consultancy practices throughout the globe.

The Paperless Lab Academy project was initiated by Peter Boogaard 6 years ago, in which Isabel Muñoz-Willery and Roberto Castelnovo joined in 2015.

Our joint efforts are focused on creating the ideal learning platform for those considering consolidating, integrating and simplifying scientific data management systems.

Over the years, the conference has developed a strong reputation for quality presentations and open exchange of ideas.

The successful formula of the Paperless Lab Academy is based on four pillars:

  • Content-rich, non-commercial plenary sessions with keynote speakers
  • 20 interactive workshops organised by leading suppliers
  • Easy access for guests
  • A professional organization that knows the market
