Counting 13 speakers and about 80 participants, the 3. Conference on Biosafety and Laboratory became a great success. In this regard, the city of Neumarkt i.d.OPf. and the Museum für historische Maybachfahrzeuge offered the perfect setting: beginning with a trip to the Museum Lothar Fischer, continuing with mulled vine and music before dinner, visiting the exhibition at the Museum für historische Maybachfahrzeuge – with an event-friendly dry weather of about 0° Celsius, the Oberpfalz in Bavaria showed its best.
In terms of our subject, this year’s conference did profit, above all, from connecting unique experiences in planning and operating high- security laboratories with innovative approaches. In this sense, Markus Eickmann jumped right into our topic – learning from 12 years of high-security laboratory in Marburg. His talk was followed by many others, who covered topics encompassing normative as well as technical fields and solutions for the laboratories of the future.
We would be glad to welcome you again in 2020!
