Report: 1st international training course on “Management and Operation of Imaging Core Facilities”, Global BioImaging
Reporting on the 1st international training course on “Management and Operation of Imaging Core Facilities”, Global BioImaging H2020 Project November 16-18, EMBL, Heidelberg
20 participants attended this first course, representing European and international facilities (Argentina, Australia, India, South Africa). The course was organized around 4 sessions (Soft Skills for Core Facility Staff; Administrative Skills, Quality Management, Metrology; How to set-up an Imaging Core Facility (exchange workshop); E-learning/hands-on in virtual training platform) with a strong participation of the French Community members as speakers. All sessions were overall well received, as suggested by the feedback collected via survey. Some adjustments were however proposed that should frame the next GBI Training Course (planned in Australia, summer 2018). In the meantime, GBI will also organize the 2nd workshop “Exchange of Experience” for core facility managers, 15-16 September 2017 in Bangalore, India and will continue to develop its “shadowing” program (personal exchanges between imaging facilities worldwide; second session March – September 2017). Stay tuned! For details, read more on the Euro BioImaging website.
