Contemporary facilities are trending toward open-space plans to cultivate a collaborative culture and encourage a cohesive research community.

This session will focus on programs and activities set to encourage a collaborative culture where researchers are motivated to thrive in their area of expertise.
- Addressing cultural changes with innovative features where scientist converge and thrive.
- Adding collaboration zones to encourage trans-disciplinary discussions which could spark new discoveries and exchange of ideas
