Hardware & Software
for Digital Labs

Cambridge, UK
29 June 2022

Digital Labs represent a paradigm shift for research organisations. It implies radical transformation of infrastructure and significant changes in the skills required from academics, researchers and the support staff. But today even some basic challenges, such as data standards and standards for communication between instruments are not yet resolved.

In this meeting we will present a number of advanced options and have an open discussion on the path towards future fully digital labs.
