Important notice: Event will no longer be held face to face but will continue as a virtual meeting as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please connect remotely to this meeting via GoToMeeting https://www.gotomeet.me/InstructERIC/instruct-eric-and-start
Join us to find out about how Instruct-ERIC and the START project can help researchers in structural biology and the life sciences.
Instruct-ERIC is the European Research Infrastructure for Structural Biology, providing training and access to high-end structural biology facilities through our centres of excellence. This event is organised together with the GCRF START project (Synchrotron Technologies for African Research and Technology https://start-project.org/) and aims to further the relationship between Instruct-ERIC and structural biologists and other life scientists in South Africa.
