How can research facilities be designed today to support the needs of research teams for decades to come? The multi-phase Next Gen Scientist initiative looks at the trajectory of automation, artificial intelligence, demographics, and research policies, and the extent to which people will continue to determine research environments of the future. Session leaders illustrate the effects of aging science leadership, brain drain, international competition, migration, wellness, and massive workplace swings, and they highlight new space types and considerations that your next capital projects should be anticipating.
