At Task Force workshops, a small number of leading scientists, each operating in different but related areas, come together for a few days in informal surroundings. These workshops seek to look into the future of emerging fields of bioscience and answer the question of whether international collaboration in a certain field would be useful. Workshop participants represent different disciplines, which need to be integrated in order to move forward in a new area of science. Drawing on these differences in research backgrounds, EC-US Task Force workshops are full of surprising conclusions and they can produce some inspiring ideas.
