CTLS2020

Lisbon, 30th of June to the 2nd of July



Core Facilities are key-players in modern institutions. Their still emergent role inevitably entails new paradigms regarding their scope and structure. The CTLS2020 conference aims to address several of these points, contributing to shape the future of the technical and scientific landscape of life sciences in Europe.
