Conferences, workshops, seminars, symposium

Live events — conferences, workshops, seminars, symposium – provide unique learning and career building opportunities. They present the perfect opportunity to meet with likeminded people and build up network, as well as improving our knowledge and presenting our work. We have in addition the great privilege at PoreLab to host a number of invited delegations. A series of workshops were organized in parallel.
You find in this page a list of the major live events PoreLab has been participating to since its beginning.
