The 12th International Congress on Innovations in Coronary Artery Disease (ICCAD 2017) - From Prevention to Intervention will follow the format of the very successful previous ICCAD meetings and will provide a comprehensive bench to bedside update on coronary artery disease in all its aspects.
The scientific program of ICCAD 2017 is being planned with the collaboration and endorsement of the ESC Working Group for Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy and other prestigious groups.
Keynote lectures will be delivered by a distinguished international faculty, while a large number of selected free communications will report new data from basic research laboratories and clinical centers around the globe.
The ICCAD program will include sessions on basic research, stem cell research and myocardial repair, vascular biology and clinical cardiology. We will also dedicate sessions to new advances in pharmacotherapy, especially to the current challenges in antithrombotic and antiplatelet therapy and to the new drugs in lipidology and diabetes which may so dramatically change the outcome and improve the prognosis.
We will also discuss the latest news in interventional cardiology, stents and strategies, including the challenge of concomitant carotid and peripheral vascular disease, the rapidly expanding field of valvular interventions, and the role of the heart team and surgical management of coronary and cardiovascular disease.
16-19 October 2017, Bari, Italy

The H2020 funded projects, AgroCycle and NoAW, are jointly hosting this event to present current thinking and developments in relation to the Circular Economy (CE) applied across the agri-food industry.
It combines an overview of the significance and relevance of the CE to the agri-food industry and presents the latest developments in technologies and systems right across the industry chain, from on-farm production systems, through retail and on to the consumer; and beyond into the bio-economy built on the agri-food 'circular economy'. Come join us and take the opportunity to influence the work programme for both NoAW and AgroCycle, thus enriching the overall experience and ensuring your issues are taken into account.
the event will be held at the MADOU Building, Karel van Miert Auditorium, Place Madou, 1 - 1210 in Brussels, Belgium

DANDELION will organise a Thematic Workshop on 13 October 2017, as a side-event of the Estonian Presidency Research Policy Conference "European Research Excellence - Impact and Value for Society" that will take place in Tallinn, Estonia.
The interactive roundtable discussion at the workshop will highlight how research from socio-economic sciences and humanities (SSH) contributes to understanding and coping with rising social inequalities and exclusion, how to foster citizens’ and especially youth participation in democratic processes, and not least, how to promote inclusive visions of EU integration.
In a series of inputs, representatives from academia, policy-making, and the civil society will showcase “what works” in practice in terms of research transfer to other societal stakeholders for the common benefit. In the plenary discussion we will identify which factors enable the “ripeness” or readiness of research to deliver impact, which barriers need to be overcome, and when, how and whom to engage within the research process in order to generate value for policy and society.
