April 23 @ 13:00 - 14:30

Calling all administrative staff with sustainability responsibilities, central laboratory managers and coordinators on 23 April at 13-14.30 (Danish time) Laboratories have a very significant environmental footprint because of high energy consumption and the need for advanced technical facilities and buildings,procurement of equipment, waste generation, use of hazardous chemicals etc.
