Green Labs: Carbon Flows in the Lab (Central) new Mon 17 Feb 2020   11:00 [Places]

We know that laboratories use lots of energy, water and resources. We know they produce mountains of waste. We know we can do better. But where should we invest our efforts to improve things?

In this workshop we will help you become more conscious of the carbon flows in your labs and help you identify the worthwhile improvements that you can make.

Please only sign up to one of the sessions. The content will be repeated. Up to 15 participants for each session.

  • Central Cambridge - 11:00-12:00 Mon 17th February 2020, Gurdon Institute, Tennis Court Road
  • Cambridge Biomedical Campus - 11:00-12:00 Tue 18th February 2020, Clinical School

  • As a University we have environmental impact in the resources we use and also in the sustainable research that we do. This webinar will give you an introduction to some of the efforts the University is making to improve environmental performance and you will learn how you can get involved in this effort.
  • The same content will be covered in session 1 and 2

Join us for this lunchtime talk, which is part of the Environment and Energy section's Spotlight on Energy month. This event focuses on the fantastic energy research being carried out across the University; research into how we produce energy, research on how better to design buildings to use less energy and finally, research on human behaviour when it comes to energy use.

  • Speakers: Arfa Karani of the Department of Physics, Dr Ruchi Chaudhary of the Department of Engineering, Rebecca Ward of the Department of Engineering and Dr Christina Pensaco of POLIS.
Green Labs: Lab Water with Avidity Science new Tue 24 Sep 2019   11:00 Finished

Green Labs has teamed up with Avidity Science to provide training on water use in laboratories.

  • What types of water are used in labs and why?
  • What are the techniques used to produce different types of lab water?
  • What can you do to adopt good water-usage practices in your workspace?

Content delivered will not be promotional and staff who use other brands are equally welcome to attend.

This event will run with two sessions on different topics. These can be booked independently if you are only interested in, or are only able to attend, one of them.

  • Session 1: 11:00-11:45, Laboratory water quality and purification techniques
  • Refreshments: 11:45-12:15
  • Session 2: 12:15-13:00, Lab water - economy and sustainability
  • Q&A with Avidity Science experts: 13:00-13:15

Refreshments will be available between the two sessions. Delegates attending any of the sessions are welcome to them!

Green Labs: Freezer Clinic with Eppendorf new Tue 11 Jun 2019   12:00 Finished

Green Labs has teamed up with Eppendorf to provide training on how ultra low temperature (ULT) freezers protect your samples and what good practices you can adopt with yours.

  • What do we need from sample storage?
  • How do ULT freezers provide appropriate conditions?
  • How should you operate your freezers to best protect your samples?

Content delivered will not be promotional and staff who use other brands are equally welcome to attend.

Spaces are limited, so attendees may be limited to one per group, subject to demand. Subsequent clinics are likely if interest is sufficient.

Refreshments will be available.

CPD eligible.

Green Labs: Lab Energy new Fri 8 Feb 2019   11:00 Finished

How can we reduce energy usage in laboratories?

As part of ‘Spotlight on Energy’ month in February 2019, come along for information and discussion on this topic. Areas will likely include how to prioritise your highest energy users and practical tips on improvements that can be made. A demonstration of the LEAF tool to quantify energy usage and opportunity within labs will also be presented. With representation from the University of Cambridge's Green Labs initiative and University College London.

Late morning refreshments will be provided.

Another session with the same content will also run at the Clinical School on the Addenbrooke's Site the following week. See Related Courses.

  • This training session aims to give staff and students at the University who are keen to reduce their environmental impact an idea of how to measure and monitor the impact of changes they make. We’ll look at useful sources of data, review case studies of what others have done to measure their impact and communicate it to colleagues, and try out some practical exercises to work out the environmental ‘footprint’ of activities associated with energy, waste, travel and purchasing.
  • Training will be provided in two parts. Attendees can book on one or both sessions. Session 1 is the workshop. Session 2 is lunch and a drop in session
