Biopeople seminars at Aarhus Labdays to focus on future scenarios in the labs and work-related injuries


Written byRandi Munch Krogsgaard

On 11 and 12 September 2019, Aarhus Labdays takes place for the third time. The location is Aarhus Congress Centre and the exhibitors and participants can look forward to two exciting days with a lot of inspiring activities and presentations

This year Biopeople is an active partner in the event with two sessions held 11 September.

Correct ergonomic equipment and training
The first session titled ‘Avoid work-related injuries in the lab’ will focus on the fact that every third employee in the lab each week experience pain from repetitive strain injury.

Physiotherapist Mathias Holmquist from Aarhus Rygklinik and automation expert Charlotte Rossmeisl from Flow Robotics, among others will give their take and advise on having the correct ergonomic equipment and the right training. A good chair, a light pipette and the newest technological advances within automation may help avoid injuries. The session will explore what can be done to avoid injuries arising from common lab work – and how to handle an injury that has occurred.

Visions and technology in the future lab
The second session on the main stage will focus on the Future Lab and offers a glimpse of future laboratories. The session gives an opportunity to discuss visions and technology ranging from use of data in the cloud, 3D-printing, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and use of robots in the future labs. What will this mean to our working life and research and what does it demand from our educational system. Anders Høeg Nissen, tech journalist will moderate the panel discussions.

Members of the panel are Charlotte Rossmeisl, Flow Robotics, Emil Højlund Nielsen, Cph nanosystems, Thomas Boesen, Scifeon, Rune Carlson, Fertin Pharma, Susanne Bahne Hansen, Dansk Laborant-Forening, and Henning Henningsen, The Danish Technology Institute.
