Symposium "Futuring Lab Automation"

On Friday 16 November 2018, we will organize a technical symposium as part of our 30 years’ anniversary.
During this inspiring day, you will discover some lab automation systems live. We will show some concrete cases of customers and suppliers with whom we collaborate. We will also share some ideas about the outlook of lab automation.
This event is also a great networking platform. You will meet, among others, CEOs, CTOs and R&D managers of large companies, SMEs and research centres worldwide.
