Sartorius and EMBL join forces to support advanced training and science education
EMBL has strengthened its links with enterprise by welcoming Sartorius to the EMBL Advanced Training Centre (ATC) Corporate Partnership Programme. Sartorius is a leading international pharmaceutical and laboratory equipment provider with two divisions: bioprocess solutions and laboratory products and services.
Sartorius, founded in 1870, employs more than 6900 people working at around 50 sites. Specifically, EMBL and Sartorius will collaborate in the provision of advanced training courses, conferences and workshops at EMBL. The company will also provide support to EMBL’s science education programme by funding ten travel bursaries for teachers to attend international training courses run by EMBL’s Learning Laboratory for the Life Sciences (ELLS) – and further collaboration is planned.
Working together will enhance our programme of internationally renowned events
“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,” says Karen Storm, Vice President of Marketing of the Lab Products and Services Division at Sartorius.
“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 continuing this endeavour with their support,” adds Matthias Hentze, EMBL Director.
Sartorius joins world-leading corporate partners who enjoy the Corporate Partnership Programme as EMBL’s platform for fostering advanced training collaborations and community building initiatives connecting industry to academia. Thanks to the generous contributions by corporate partners, EMBL provides financial support for science meetings in emerging fields and young scientists contributing to courses and conferences held at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre.
