Yale Day of Instrumentation 2020

Transforming the future of discovery

The second annual Yale Day of Instrumentation will continue to explore the connection between instrumentation development and science at Yale and provide a forum to collect your ideas and input on directions for instrumentation and technology development on campus. The goal of this event is to enhance campus-wide understanding of what is available for instrumentation development at Yale, seek input from the campus community on what is needed to support advanced technology development, and to gather ideas for future strategic initiatives. 

Specifically, some of the questions we hope to explore are:

  • What is instrumentation development at Yale?

  • What is the role of instrumentation development in the science priorities? 

  • What is the relation between instrumentation development and core facilities? 

  • What kind of support is needed for instrumentation and technology development?

Since the inaugural Yale Day of Instrumentation last year the Office of the Provost has charged a university-wide committee to help oversee the planning of the 2020 Yale Day of Instrumentation, steer the development of the instrumentation initiative at Yale, and help develop recommendations for future strategic initiatives according to the science strategy outlined in the University Science Strategy Committee report.

We hope you will join us for this exciting symposium! For more information, questions, or comments please contact us at instrumentation@yale.edu.
