International Freezer Challenge 2019

EGNATON-Award for the three best European teams

The International Freezer Challenge awards 2019 prizes to laboratory teams from universities and organizations in Europe and around the world who improve their freezer and sample management or test out new ideas. Each measure, whether established or newly introduced, gives points and whoever achieves the most points -  as a university or individual laboratory - is honored.

International awards are given to the best laboratory teams, the best universities and organizations. The winning teams will be published in Nature.

The three best European teams are honored by the EGNATON-Award.

The challenge runs until spring 2019.

The International Freezer Challenge is organized by the US-American organizations MyGreenLab and the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL). In Europe, the Freezer Challenge is supported by the European Association for Sustainable Laboratories.
