    Why attend?

    CTLS 2016 aims to bring together not only sci­en­tists, tech­ni­cians and man­agers, but also deci­sion mak­ers and opin­ion lead­ers involved in Core Tech­nol­ogy facil­i­ties and resource lab­o­ra­to­ries in all fields of Life Sci­ence. Build­ing on the suc­cess of CTLS 2014 held at the Insti­tut Pas­teur in Paris, this meet­ing will be a unique oppor­tu­nity to lis­ten and dis­cuss with col­leagues and peers about chal­lenges and solu­tions on all sci­en­tific, tech­no­log­i­cal, man­age­r­ial fund­ing, edu­ca­tional and com­mu­nity build­ing aspects of core facil­i­ties and infra­struc­tures. Keynote lec­tures will pro­vide the big pic­ture of this dynamic field, com­pli­mented by five ple­nary ses­sions com­pris­ing both oral and poster pre­sen­ta­tions, which will allow pre­sen­ters and atten­dees to explore and dis­cuss issues con­cern­ing Euro­pean core facil­i­ties and infra­struc­tures. There will also be ample oppor­tu­nity for exist­ing and prospec­tive core facil­ity net­works or inter­est groups to organ­ise satel­lite meetings.


    EMBL Cor­po­rate Part­ner­ship Pro­gramme Fellowships

    A lim­ited num­ber of EMBL Advanced Train­ing Cen­tre Cor­po­rate Part­ner­ship Pro­gramme (CPP) fel­low­ships are avail­able for this meet­ing in the form of both Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Waivers and Travel Grants. You may apply for an EMBL CPP Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Waiver and/​or Travel Grant when sub­mit­ting your abstract. Whilst sub­mit­ting your abstract (Step 2 after you have reg­is­tered your per­sonal details) you will also be asked to com­plete a field with the name of your lab and the coun­try in which it is based, and to answer some ques­tions to detail your rea­sons for request­ing this fel­low­ship. A state­ment of sup­port from your bud­get hold­ing super­vi­sor explain­ing a) their sup­port for your atten­dance and b) sup­port pro­vided by the lab­o­ra­tory bud­get is required to com­plete the application.

    Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Waiver: The sum that you have paid to attend the meet­ing will be reimbursed.

    Travel Grant: Up to €400 for par­tic­i­pants trav­el­ling from the Euro­pean con­ti­nent and up to €1000 for par­tic­i­pants trav­el­ling from out­side Europe (receipts of travel will be sub­mit­ted to the EMBL Course and Con­fer­ence Office and the exact sum for travel expenses up to the cap will be reimbursed).
