ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.
Core facility managers find themselves in a variety of different roles that demand a broad set of skills they traditionally haven’t been taught in their academic career. Managing budgets, marketing facility services, negotiating, dealing with hierarchy, dealing with conflicts in a team or recruiting the right people are some of the challenges people typically face in this position. GerBI has hired hfp consulting, a group who specialises in supporting scientists to improve their leadership and management skills, to develop and run an intense, interactive and highly specialised workshop that addresses these challenges.
