E-Notebook (ELN) was introduced at VIB in 2010. Since then many research groups and core facilities adopted the system and now use it on a regular basis.

In order to keep up with the new MS Windows environment and MS Office versions, we plan to upgrade the current version of E-Notebook to the latest and greatest. PerkinElmer will perform the upgrade in the week of 20-24 August 2018. The application will therefore not be available on the first 3-4 days of the week. We will try to limit the downtime to a minimum and will inform you when the application is back online.

The new E-Notebook manual will be published soon. For more information or if you have any questions, mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

HELIS Academy: improving the ‘industry readiness’ of Life Sciences & Health students

In April 2018, HELIS Academy was launched. Funded by Interreg Vlaanderen-Nederland (EU), the project’s main aim is to bridge the gap between the competences required for jobs in the Life Sciences & Health sector and the existing training programmes.

The project is executed by ten Dutch and Flemish partners from academia and industry, including VIB represented by the VIB Bioinformatics Core. The Dutch-Flemish collaboration aims to assess the teaching and training needs of Life Sciences & Health companies in the Netherlands and Flanders. In addition, the partners will develop and offer courses to help students acquire the desired skills and competences. HELIS Academy will focus on the general ‘industry readiness’ of students in Life Sciences & Health at all levels of education. In addition, it will focus on specific skills for certain types of jobs within the sector.

HELIS Academy is gefinancierd binnen het Interreg V-programma Vlaanderen-Nederland, het grensoverschrijdend samenwerkingsprogramma met financiële steun van het Europees Fonds voor Regionale Ontwikkeling. Meer info: www.grensregio.eu
