Sartorius, a leading international laboratory and pharmaceutical equipment supplier, has announced a partnership with EMBL, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory.
EMBL is one of the Europe’s leading research institutions with global reach. It includes many research sites, such as Heidelberg and Hamburg in Germany, Hinxton in the UK, Grenoble in France and Monterotondo in Italy.
Sartorius has joined the Corporate Partnership Programme, EMBL’s platform for fostering advanced training collaboration and activities designed to connect industry to academia.
The Corporate Partnership Programme includes initiatives such as creating training courses, sponsoring conferences, organising workshops for professionals and young scientists at the EMBL International Center for Advanced Training, EICAT, which offers numerous courses and conferences each year.
In addition, Sartorius will also provide long-term support to EMBL’s school education programme by funding travel bursaries each year for teachers to attend courses run by EMBL’s Learning Laboratory for the Life Sciences, ELLS.
Backing this well-known research institution, Sartorius is offering its expertise to enhance scientific education and practice. “By focusing on professional training at all levels, and ensuring that the next generation of young talent has access to the latest knowledge, we aim to support the scientific community to reach its maximum potential,” stated Karen Storm, Vice President of Marketing of the Lab Products & Services Division at Sartorius.
In parallel, EMBL is actively expanding its footprint by strengthening activities beyond the academic sphere into industry. “On behalf of EMBL, we welcome Sartorius to our family of Corporate Partners – working together will enhance our programme of internationally renowned events, and we look forward to integrate their technologies and expertise into our offering,” added Prof. Matthias Hentze, Director, EMBL.
