ICAI Lab Managers Meeting

ICAI Lab Mangers Meeting

On Monday 15th of May we are organising a Lab Managers Meeting at LAB42, UvA. This event will bring together all the ICAI Lab Managers and will introduce the new ROBUST Lab Managers to the community. The goals of the event are for established managers to share lessons learned and their experiences and for new labs to ask questions and gather information. It is also a great opportunity for established labs to learn what the ROBUST labs are doing.

Please note: This event is only open to ICAI Lab Managers.

The event will be taking place on site at Lab42 at the University of Amsterdam. If you are unable to make it person but still wish to attend, please contact Ciara Snijders (csnijders@icai.ai).
