Purchasing products: Experiences with scientists and suppliers
Recently, we asked over 900 members of the SAB to tell us more about how they purchase products through life science suppliers, and the factors that influence their selection of supplier.  Discuss
Customer service and technical support: From your perspective
Over 700 members of the SAB recently took part in a survey regarding their experiences with customer service and technical support through life science suppliers. We thought you’d like to know a little more about some of the results from this project, to understand how some of the research we conduct with your help ends up!  Discuss
Technology Helps the World Tackle Climate Change - Insights from The Science Advisory Board
On October 8th, 2018 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a body of the United Nations tasked with assessing the science related to climate change, released a special report titled “Global Warming of 1.5°C.” Many nations across the world have pledged to do their part in reducing carbon emissions from industrialization and protecting natural resources. But how do they plan to reach these targets? Turns out technology, has a major role in the global effort to limit warming and reduce the impacts of climate change.  Discuss
Scientists Share Their Opinions on Climate Change: Interactions of Global, National, and Local Action - Science Advisory Board Insights
Climate change is a global concern, therefore it is important to understand international, national and local policies and regulations. Cooperation and collaboration are essential to successfully limit the current impacts and future effects of climate change.  Discuss
UK Scientists Weigh In on Brexit and Laboratory Spending - Science Advisory Board Insights
The long road to a resolution of the Brexit situation appeared to be nearing an end earlier this year, with the deadline set for March 29 to finalize how Britain would exit the EU. A “hard” Brexit, the case if no EU-Britain agreement is reached, would remove Britain from the EU’s single market among other consequences. A “soft” exit would result in Britain remaining part of the single market, but not an EU member. With a government stalemate in Britain, the EU agreed to extend the deadline until October 31, though a deal may come sooner.  Discuss
The Intersection of Life Scientists and Social Media: A Revolution
How do your peers receive information online and how do they utilize social media as a means of learning new information and sharing content? These are just a few of the questions that our colleagues at BioInformatics Inc. explored in a recent report about digital marketing to life scientists.  Discuss
Scientists Discuss Career Satisfaction
How satisfied are you with your career as a scientist? Do you feel adequately compensated for your work? Have you ever considered leaving your career in science? The Science Advisory Board set out to explore the answers to these questions. We interviewed over 600 of your fellow members from various disciplines across the world to understand their personal experiences and thoughts on the subject.  Discuss
Planning the Ideal Research Conference
Research conferences are an important opportunity for scientists to network and build their careers. For vendors, these events are a chance to learn about competitors and establish connections with potential customers. However, the major organizers of annual events and conferences are often professional societies, hoping to provide their members with cutting-edge information, opportunities for professional advancement, and the ability to connect with others in the same area of science.  Discuss
Life Scientists Online – Connecting, Influencing, Sharing.
As generations pass by and new forms of communication develop, different preferences for social interaction are beginning to dominate. This has led to new trends in how scientists connect with brand executives, and will continue to affect how major organizations approach the life science market.  Discuss
