As I2SL works to expand the Labs21 Annual Conference, Workshops, and its own sustainable laboratory initiatives, we looked to you, the experts in the laboratory community, for your thoughts on various initiatives.

Development of a Global Sustainable Laboratory Council

Hosted by DECHEMA, Fraunhofer Institute, I2SL, Higher Education Environmental Performance Improvement, and Public Works and Government Services Canada

This meeting's hosts are considering development of an informal, international council of laboratory program representatives. The council, managed by I2SL, would serve to coordinate and streamline the efforts of individual programs and/or countries and would help advance sustainable laboratory design throughout Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, and beyond.

 

Labs21 2010 Annual Conference Planning Committee

Hosted by I2SL

As the Labs21 Annual Conference sets its sights on Albuquerque, New Mexico, we asked you to join us to share your thoughts on how to make the 2010 conference a success. In addition to discussing lessons learned from this year's event, this lunch meeting provided a great opportunity for conference organizers to hear how the Labs21 Annual Conference can be improved to better meet your needs.  

Creating Laboratory Facility Guidelines for Planning and Design

Hosted by I2SL and the American Institute of Architects

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and I2SL invited the Labs21 Community to hear an update on their collaborative project to create Laboratory Facility Guidelines for Planning and Design. This project, an update and expansion of the 1999 AIA Guidelines for Planning and Design of Biomedical Research Laboratories, will provide guidance for a variety of laboratory types and will include strategies for energy and environmental sustainability. During this meeting, members of various guidelines committees convened, along with others who are interested in participating in this process, and offered an update on funding and discussed next steps and responsibilities for development of the guidelines.
