Developing ideas for the future!
LABVOLUTION and smartLAB connects offer a unique holistic overview of the lab of the future, showcasing equipment from various manufacturers that are integrated into a laboratory communication network.
smartLAB is now on the way to becoming a research project that shows the connected lab in reality. Maintaining a vision is what drives progress. It will not be absent at smartLAB connects, which will highlight the role of AI in improving lab processes.
The Institute for Energy and Environmental Technology e.V., the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, the LADS (Laboratory Agnostic Device Standard) working group and Deutsche Messe as the organizer of LABVOLUTION joined forces last year to form the link_the_lab working group.
The aim is to promote the exchange and transfer of knowledge within the laboratory industry on the subject of communication standards and data formats in the laboratory.
In an automated laboratory infrastructure, which consists of many highly specialized devices and components from different manufacturers, the lab often relies on its own interfaces, which are not compatible or only compatible with individual development efforts.
The way out: open interface standards are needed.
Although laboratory automation has played a major role in the field of analytics for many years, many laboratory processes are still characterized by a high degree of manual work steps. Especially for small laboratories or small laboratory units in larger companies, the digital transformation of classic workflows represents a major challenge.
The AnalyticsDay as part of smartLAB connects will therefore highlight all aspects surrounding the topics of digitization and automation in the context of the smart laboratory of the future.
For quite some time now, sustainability has made it from the niche into the mainstream - there is no political agenda or corporate page where it is not addressed. Even in our private lives, we pay attention and try to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible.
However, what about sustainability in research, given disposable plastic articles, high water and energy consumption or substances that are hazardous to our environment and health? Is it possible to work sustainably in the lab? And what are companies from the industry doing in terms of sustainability?
The sustainability day will take place online on Tuesday, 07.09.2021. The focus will be on topics such as "plastics in the lab" and practical insights into activities inside the science community and in companies.
Program 07 Sept 2021
What ideas and proposed solutions are there to reduce the use of plastic in everyday laboratory work?
What can employees contribute? What are the terms and conditions?
What can Life Science companies do to implement more sustainability within the laboratory?
The lecture will be held in German/English. The detailed program will be online soon.

Genome Editing - breeding methods of the future?!
Wednesday, September 8, 2021 | 10.00 - 11.45 a.m.
Organizer: Wissenschaftlerkreis Grüne Gentechnik e.V. (WGG)
Genome editing methods make it possible to modify and adapt the genetic material of cultivated plants in a targeted and precise manner. Scientists see this as an important building block to complement classical breeding in the future. They expect these new plant breeding techniques to make considerable progress toward more sustainable agriculture that is adapted to the consequences of climate change. Until now, the use of these new techniques has been bound by the strict rules of the Genetic Engineering Act, which dates back to 2001. But a study published by the EU Commission at the end of April sees clear potential for sustainable agriculture - and a need for regulatory reform.
During the moderated session, which will be followed by a discussion, expert scientists will explain the possibilities of genome editing for meeting future challenges to plant breeding and illustrate corresponding objectives using concrete projects. In addition, the contents of the EU study on genome editing will be presented and discussed.
Welcome and introduction
Prof. Dr. Gabriele Krczal, Wissenschaftlerkreis Grüne Gentechnik e.V. (WGG)
Genome-edited trees as a sustainable means for climate adaptation
Dr. Tobias Brügmann, Thünen Institute of Forest Genetics (vTI), Großhansdorf
EU study on new genomic techniques (NGT) Chances for application in Europe?
Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dieter Jany, Wissenschaftlerkreis Grüne Gentechnik e.V. (WGG)
Moderation: Prof. Dr. Gabriele Krczal
Current topics from the molecular life sciences are the focus of the Science Symposium.
The scientific journal BIOspektrum from the scientific publisher Springer Nature, together with the Association for General and Applied Microbiology (VAAM) as well as the Society for Toxicology (GT) and the Society for Genetics (GfG), is organising an exciting conference format of current scientific topics.
The programme includes lecture sessions on these topics:
The Association for General and Applied Microbiology (VAAM) is the largest microbiologically oriented German professional association for scientists from industry, universities and research institutions with about 3,500 members. Its aim is to implement research results in microbiology for the benefit of society and the environment.
The Society of Toxicology (GT within the DGPT, German Society for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology with about 2,500 members) is the leading force in Germany in advancing toxicological science, training toxicologists and applying toxicological findings in practice for the continuous improvement of human and animal health and their environment.
The Gesellschaft für Genetik (GfG) is an association of scientists in universities and non-university research institutions, in industry and public authorities, who work on various aspects of genetics. It promotes scientific endeavours in the entire field of genetics.
The journal BIOspektrum , published by Springer Nature, appears seven times a year with a circulation of around 15,000 copies (tva). The journal provides an overview of the latest developments in the molecular biosciences.
Already for the 2nd time the Gläserne Labor Akademie Berlin offers hands-on- workshops for users in the life sciences and invites to participate and exchange ideas
Keep your knowledge up to date
LABVOLUTION is definitely the place to catch up on the latest trends and innovations in laboratory equipment. But the show is also ideal for those who want to extend their own knowledge in workshops and seminars.
Workshops Life Sciences
Workshop with Dr. Anne Kriegel, Labforward GmbH, Berlin
Keynote Dr. Michael Becker, Experimentelle Pharmakologie & Onkologie Berlin (EPO)
Workshop with Dr. Felix Lambrecht, anvajo GmbH Dresden
Background Gläsernes Labor Akademie (GLA)
For more than 15 years, the GLA has been offering in-service training with seminars, workshops, and practical laboratory courses for natural scientists and technicians working in the life sciences.
The GLA is based on the Berlin-Buch Science Campus, in close proximity to about 45 innovative biotechnology and medical engineering firms, as well as high-profile research establishments such as the MaxDelbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) and the Leibniz Research Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP).
