Laboratory-Intensive Campus Developments in Europe

Wednesday, September 17

Multiple factors such as business practices, energy costs, and regulations make laboratory operations in Europe different from those in North America. This symposium explored the green programs, buildings, and other environmental practices in Europe through presentations from architects, construction and design directors, and leaders in research regarding the development of facilities in Germany, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland. Upon conclusion of the presentations, the speakers were joined by several executives of multinational companies that have operations in both Europe and North America for a panel discussion of similarities and differences between the two continents. This symposium provided unique insight for professionals interested in learning new practices and/or building or developing a presence in Europe.

Moderator: Peter James, Higher Education Environmental Performance Improvement (HEEPI) Initiative
