January session: The importance of Core Facilities for the Scientific Communities


This session will present three different viewpoints on how core facilities currently contribute and could contribute in the future to the progress of scientific research and to strengthening of the scientific community. We will hear from two core facility managers, an industrial R&D user, and a post-doc/young investigator user. In the end, we will have time for a discussion between the panelists and the attendees.
