A new competition is being launched in connection with LABVOLUTION. As of the 2019 staging of LABVOLUTION, the LABVOLUTION AWARD will be given in recognition of real-world solutions implemented by lab operators to optimize their work. During LABVOLUTION 2023, high-caliber seminar and consultancy prizes worth a total of over €10,000 will be presented to the lucky winner.
Successful lab tech optimizations
Do you save a significant amount of energy when keeping your samples cool? Have you found the ideal cleaning solution for keeping laboratory glassware clean at all times? Are your interfaces perfectly suited for extracting new knowledge from large amounts of data? Laboratory optimisations can affect a wide range of areas – from increased productivity to cost savings and employee satisfaction! Share your successful laboratory optimisation with the industry.
Apply for the LABVOLUTION AWARD by 15 March 2023!
The award honors the best optimizations and innovations that improve working in the laboratory. This includes "analogue" optimisations of processes, procedures and methods or technologies, equipment, design and management techniques (e.g. lean in the lab), as well as "digital" solutions, tools and software.
Conditions of participation
The tagline spells it out: Excellence in Lab Optimization. The LABVOLUTION AWARD recognizes outstanding improvements that bring significant added value to laboratory work and processes.
These can be processes, procedures and methods as well as technologies, software, design or management techniques.
What’s important is that relevant improvements can be verified. And these improvements can relate to a wide range of different areas, including increased productivity, cost savings, speed, reliability, safety, material consumption and energy efficiency or even motivation and employee satisfaction.
To determine the winner, the independent jury will evaluate entries based on the following criteria:
Whether it is a large or a small solution is not decisive.
The LABVOLUTION AWARD is aimed specifically at users from the laboratory sector, i.e. at laboratories, research groups, individuals or laboratory teams.
The ideas can also be small measures with a low resource input or medium-sized and large projects that require correspondingly more resources. The size of the project is not decisive - at the end of the day, it is the relationship between effort and benefit that counts.
The two special prizes are aimed at (former) students of a college or university who have completed a doctorate/doctoral thesis/PhD or bachelor's/master's thesis that was written no more than two years ago.
Prize will be awarded to the best lab optimization project during the LABVOLUTION 2023. The winner can look forward to high-quality seminars and consulting services worth over €10,000 provided by Geniu.
The LABVOLUTION AWARD application phase runs until 15 March 2022.
An independent expert jury will select the winners from all entries submitted. The announcement of the winners including the award ceremony will take place during the LABVOLUTION 2023.
The organizers and partners of the LABVOLUTION AWARD are Geniu, LABORPRAXIS and Deutsche Messe.
Geniu is a consulting and training institution that specializes in laboratories. Geniu – from "the genius in you" – focuses on enabling laboratory managers and staff to achieve significant and sustained improvements in their laboratories. This is made possible by an innovative approach consisting of (online) training and practical consultancy services in the laboratory, an approach that has received recognition from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
Topics cover the entire spectrum of challenges faced by today’s laboratory. Examples include "lean" in the laboratory, introducing performance indicators, the ideal design of laboratory layouts for new buildings and conversions ("lean lab design"), automation and digitalization, laboratory benchmarking, reducing lead times, optimizing documentation, reducing error rates, and introducing laboratory planning and capacity management systems.
For over 40 years the trade journal LABORPRAXIS has been informing readers about the latest developments and products in analytics, laboratory technology, biotechnology, genetic engineering and life sciences. Experts report on innovations in instrumental analytics and the latest trends in food analysis, water/environmental analysis and bioanalysis. In addition, the magazine covers topical issues such as laboratory safety and microfluidics as well as management articles geared to the laboratory target group. The English-language edition LAB Worldwide is aimed at industry users and decision-makers throughout the world.
Cross-media channels such as the trade journals LABORPRAXIS and LAB Worldwide, the online portals www.laborpraxis.de and www.lab-worldwide.com , the newsletter eLABORPRAXIS and in-house events such as the Praxistag HPLC supply technical and managerial staff with useful content providing them with specific solutions for their day-to-day tasks.
