The lectures on the focus topics Sustainable Solutions in Laboratory and Production and Sustainability in Life Sciences are organised in close cooperation with our partners Swiss Chemical Society (SCG) and BioAlps. Lab automation and self-learning systems are used to make laboratory and production processes more efficient, to increase product quality and to have better control and documentation of critical parameters.
