On the 24th November 2017, a workshop took place at IST Austria in Klosterneuburg, aiming to exchange best practices and foster collaboration between scientific facilities of IST Austria and CEITEC.
Managers of IST Austria’s Scientific Service Units and CEITEC’s Core Facilities discussed details and their experience in setting up and managing scientific facilities, focusing on Nanofabrication, Electron Microscopy, and IT Facilities.
Particularly in the nanofabrication area the interaction between CEITEC and IST Austria should be intensified in the future. A proposal for specific next steps will be developed by the relevant facility leaders.
To follow up on administrative aspects of managing scientific facilities and IT infrastructure issues IST Austria representatives will visit CEITEC in spring 2018.
