1st nICLAS-Forum for cooperative R & D in laboratory automation

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is providing startup funding of over EUR 600,000 for nICLAS. Interested companies and research institutes are able to join the community so that together we can create the laboratory environment of tomorrow. The launch event on March 23 provides the first insight into nICLAS and enables participants to get to know the project partners on a personal level.

Today, laboratories often resemble a traditional manufactory structure. Devices and processes are not connected and valuable samples are often processed manually by employees. For a long time, this system has been sufficient to maximize the innovative strength of laboratories. However, they now generate much more data and the familiar model cannot keep up with this increased complexity. At the Innovation Center for Laboratory Automation Stuttgart, nICLAS for short, Fraunhofer IPA and industry partners are developing new technologies for the smart laboratory of the future. The team will introduce itself for the first time at the nICLAS forum in Stuttgart on March 23.

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
