More than a conference. More than an exhibition. It’s almost time for Future Labs Live, which will take place in Basel later this month on 26-27 June, with pre-event workshops on 25 June. The organisers of this major showcase for all aspects of the future of labs have brought together a strikingly diverse line-up with around 100 exhibitors, 200 speakers and an expected 3,000 attendees. And as an official partner, euRobotics will be well-represented in Basel at the Swiss border city’s Congress Centre later this month. The reach of Future Labs Live is impressive, spanning start-ups and innovators from academia and a spread of sectors, many highly relevant to robotics, including Biotech, Pharma, Chemicals and Agrifood, also architects and planners. In this way they will combine to offer an end-to-end perspective on their experiences and vision for the lab of the future. As previously reported, euRobotics secretary-General Reinhard Lafrenz will be taking part in a discussion on the ‘Research roadmap for the laboratory community: Automating discovery: high throughput experimentation, diagnostics and robotics/AI’, moderated by Patrick Courtney, Director, SiLA Consortium, which will also feature Radhika Gudipati, Senior Research Coordinator (Robotics & AI), Ocado Technology, another familiar figure from the euRobotics community. A much-anticipated White Paper will also be launched and published at this session.  Radhika will also chair a session on Automated, Integrated & Interoperable Discovery.  And then, bringing a busy three days to fruition, euRobotics President Bernd Liepert will be a member of the closing Keynote panel considering ‘Maintaining digital lab innovation in Europe – How can we stay ahead of the curve?’ Full details of the programme can be found at Future Labs Live
