HALOS symposium – Moving Life Science research and innovation forward with macro-regional unique resources

HALOS and Medicon Valley Alliance invite you to join us for a half-day symposium on how to benefit from using the large-scale research infrastructures such as MAX IV and ESS, and how the unique resources available in the Öresund-Hamburg area could be utilised in life science.

During the symposium we will focus on using or combining workflows and the research and innovation resources in the Öresund-Hamburg region, and how this can be applied in the life science sector. This will be highlighted with examples from Hanseatic League of Science (HALOS), and experiences from researchers and the life science sector. Workflows from sample preparation all the way to data analysis and visualisation connecting key competence groups and large-scale research infrastructures will be presented, and the challenges for the life science sector connected to the use of the large-scale research infrastructures will also be discussed.

The symposium will provide attendees with an opportunity to share experiences and to network with others engaged in life science and innovation.

Date: Monday the 31st of January, 2022
Time: 12.30 – 17.00
Venue:  Auditorium, Edvard Thomsens Vej 14, 2300 Copenhagen S, Denmark
Cost: Free of charge
