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.
While there are several courses and training schools worldwide aimed at core facility managers, up to now none has specifically addressed the question of the professional development of core facility scientists, engineers and technicians, nor that of the career perspectives of students who are wondering about core facility opportunities.
The 3-day training school “Building a Successful Career in a Core Facility” is an eye-opening interactive event including conferences, roundtables, workshops and core facility visits with plenty of time for informal discussions and job shadowing.
Several key stakeholders in the field will be participating, such as Kelly Vere (Technician Commitment UK) and Saskia Lippens (VIB-Ghent, Belgium).
