Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELN)

Time and place:       22.3.2022, 10:00-11:30, online

Target group:      Researchers, data stewards, research support staff, infrastructure providers/operators

Language:               English


The main purpose of an ELN–electronic lab notebook–is clear: taking notes, data storage, organisation. But what about the details that come later once the digital solution has been fully integrated into your workflow? It can be a challenge to figure out exactly what your lab needs if you’ve never used an ELN. And there is more than one solution available for all that. What are the benefits and the disadvantages of the different solutions and how do they work? This webinar gives an overview and also insights of a specific solution. To get an idea of the work with an ELN a demo with eLabFTW will be shown.
