Call for posters

The aim of the 'Envisioning the research centres of the future' call for posters is to provide a platform to all the scientific community, including our members and collaborators, to showcase initiatives that are enhancing research organisations.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • The research places of the future
  • Research culture & environment
  • Research facilities & services
  • Research governance
  • Success stories in science (scientific, knowledge transfer, community building, etc.)

Posters will be displayed in the EU-LIFE 10th Anniversary Conference, and all attendees will have the opportunity to talk to the authors at different slots of the event. At least one of the poster authors is required to register, attend in person and exhibit the poster at the conference.

A poll will be organised during the conference. The most voted-for poster will be announced at the end of the event and published in the conference web page. Furthermore, an interview with the author will be published in the EU-LIFE website.
