Royal Society of Chemistry Outlines its Conference for Lab Innovations 2014

The free-to-attend Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) conference, hosted at Lab Innovations on 5 & 6 November 2014 at Birmingham’s NEC will focus on a select group of overarching themes, including Horizon 2020 Funding, Energy, Environment, Sustainable Labs, Health & Safety, Training and Legislation.

Laboratory managers, researchers and scientists attending the two day conference will learn how Horizon 2020 is aiming to secure Europe's global research and innovation competitiveness, how to access the €80 billion of funding available and how to navigate the process.


The conference will also feature Sustainable Labs, with a topical case study on the first carbon neutral lab in the UK, The Centre of Sustainability at the University of Nottingham, funded by GlaxoSmithKline. This unique centre acts as a hub to catalyse new collaborations within the industry, aiming for the highest ‘clean & green’ standards in a bid to minimise the impact on the environment and ensure new discoveries are sustainable.


The RSC programme will explore CLP, the 2015 EU Legislation on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, including the latest changes regarding the classification and labelling of chemicals within the EU.


There will also be an opportunity to attend a Chemistry World Panel - a roundtable panel debate chaired by The RSC, giving industry experts and show attendees the opportunity to discuss some of the critical issues that have arisen throughout the day. Plus there will be seminars on why legal responsibility and health & safety always seem to take a back seat.


In addition to the RSC conference programme, Lab Innovations will play host to a full exhibition, featuring the latest laboratory technology & consumables, analytical & biotech equipment from leading industry companies. In addition to this Campden BRI, the UK’s largest independent food and drink research body will be carrying out its own practical workshops, plus hosting a new two day paid for conference.


Lab Innovations is the UK’s only event dedicated to laboratory equipment, technology and services.  The show is already supported by the Gambica, RSC, Campden BRI and UKAS and its attendees are lab managers and scientists working within the chemical, life sciences, food & beverage industries plus those in research institutions.


Lab Innovations 2014 will be held on the 5 & 6 November, 2014 at Birmingham’s NEC. Visitor registration is free and will open in the summer via the Lab Innovations website
