For many of our member organizations, the optimization and professionalization of their digital strategy is currently an important issue. In the 1st BioRiver IT Forum we would therefore like to address the various aspects of optimal use of IT. The 1st BioRiver IT Forum belongs to the young event series of the BioRiver member forums.
The organizer is BioRiver together with its members anderScore, Lims@work and MEDEORA. Our host is anderScore GmbH, an expert in the practice-oriented support of IT customer projects.
The workshop begins with an overview of the open source CRM system vTiger, followed by a presentation on contemporary digital information management in the laboratory environment and a lecture on the transformation of “IT botch” to a stable, future-proof software foundation with an outlook on future technologies give. After the presentations and in the panel discussion, there is time for questions from the participants and for sharing experiences with each other.
Before the start of the 1st BioRiver IT Forum, participants are invited to visit the Great St Martin Crypt. The Romanesque church with the ruins of a Roman thermal bath is directly behind the Stapelhaus.
The 1st BioRiver IT Forum is aimed at managers and responsible employees in life science companies, research groups and organizations of all sizes. Since the 1st BioRiver IT Forum is also aimed specifically at employees from the IT departments within the member companies, we ask you to forward the invitation to the relevant departments and contact persons in your company!
Please also forward the invitation to interested colleagues from other organizations and thus help to expand the BioRiver network.
