Welcome to S-Lab, a unique initiative which supports laboratory improvement through events, assessment tools, benchmarking, cases and guidance documents. Our next events are:

  • Two Smart Ventilation workshops in Newcastle on Feb 24 and London on Feb 25.
  • A Sept one day Conference on Smart and Sustainable Science - more details soon.

Our 2019 Awards brochure and 1000 or so presentations from past events are now available in our Public Dropbox Folder. The presentations include:

  • Those from our last event, at the Quadram Institute/Norwich Research Park in September 2019.
  • Those on sustainable labs at Imperial; the new ACT standard for laboratory equipment energy and environmental performance, and laboratory environmental assessment from our Imperial College London workshop in JUne 2019. (Also two videos of the proceedings.)
  • 100+ presentations from our joint Conference with UKSPA at the University of Birmingham in April 2019.
  • 40-50 presentations from each of our 2018, 2017 and 2016 one day Conferences at The University of Bristol, the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge, The University of Strathclyde, Rothamsted Research; and the GSK Sustainable Chemistry Laboratory at the University of Nottingham.
  • 80+ presentations from our May 2017 two day Conference at York Racecourse: "Science Innovation and Translation: The Design and Operation of Research Laboratories, Incubators and Science Park Facilities", organised in collaboration with UKSPA.

Many of the above events featured short-listed applications for past S-Lab Awards.
