Gläsernes Labor Akademie

For the first time, the Glass Laboratory Academy (GLA) from Berlin is staging two full-day events at LABVOLUTION 2019 in Hannover, Germany: a Laboratory 4.0 workshop for technicians and lab assistants, and a conference day featuring talks on career opportunities for PhD students and post-docs in the life sciences.

New job prospects, further training opportunities and a tradeshow visit

LABVOLUTION 2019 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.
