V Core Management Workshop: Trainer the Trainers

The workshop is an international venue aimed at managers and staff of research core facilities (microscopy, proteomics, flow cytometry, genomics, sequencing, histology, animal house, etc.), to discuss the best ways to manage and run facilities for science, to solve technical, scientific, and management problems, and to establish collaborations by networking with peers. Managers, core staff, and industrial partners are all invited to participate.

The international “Core Management Workshop” was launched in 2012 by Nuno Moreno and Rui Gardner, from Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência in Oeiras, Portugal. It was widely attended by many international experts from several core areas. The enthusiasm generated was such that, at the end of the workshop, most participants felt that it would be beneficial to have this meeting annually and taking place in different locations.

The V Core Management Workshop will be held at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park, where the Centre for Genomic Regulation is located, on July 6th-7th 2017.

This edition will be focused on the challenging subject: “Training the trainers”. We will count with a panel of experts coming from different research areas, industry and management, that will share their experience on all aspects related to training strategies for core facility staff.
