IMPORTANT – EVENT CANCELLATION
We have been monitoring the present situation and liaising with our Board of Directors. We believe it is in the best interests of all members of the Pistoia Alliance if our Annual Conference and FAIR/Lab of the Future Workshops are CANCELLED with immediate effect.
This is to avoid the risk of any delegate being exposed to or infected with Coronavirus (COVID-19) and thus being impacted. We have also considered the impact of self-isolation and quarantine on the business and affected families. This decision has been made following the monitoring of ongoing UK government guidelines and advice plus feedback from many of our member companies. As of 4th March, 85 people in the UK have been confirmed positive for the virus as reported by the UK Government.
We are sorry for the inconvenience that this will cause to our members, guests and speakers. We will be in touch shortly with the proposed dates for a rescheduled activity.
This Pistoia Alliance workshop will address the themes of Lab of the Future and FAIR Data Management in Life Science Research and Development.
The format will be a mixture of talks, panels and discussions with the aim of getting industry alignment on these important topics.

- Intro to the Lab of the Future Strategy in Pistoia Alliance
