6th International Fluid Academy Days (IFAD)

23-25 November 2017, Antwerp, Belgium

After the success of the last edition being fully booked with over 500 participants, we are very excited to present you the Sixth International Fluid Academy Days!

A neglected topic for way too long, the interest in fluid therapy seems to be quickly rising as the medical community is making a shift from looking at fluids as a mere method of stabilization towards the appreciation of its relevant side effects.

Fluids should be seen as any other drug with indications and contraindications and possible adverse effects. In analogy to antibiotics it is time to consider the 4 D's of fluid therapy.

Workshop "Agri-food SMEs collaborating for innovation along the supply chain - What, who, how?"

17 October 2017, Brussels, Belgium

 

On 17 October 2017, the European Commission (Directorate-General Research & Innovation, Directorate General Agriculture and Rural Development) organised a workshop entitled "Agri-food SMEs collaborating for innovation along the supply chain - What, who, how?. This workshop was organised in collaboration with 2 Strategic Working Groups (SWG 'Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems / AKIS' and SWG 'Food Systems/FS') of the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR).

The aim of this workshop was:

  • to showcase agri-food SMEs' best practices on collaborating for innovation along the supply chain;
  • to discuss the challenges and opportunities of such co-innovation:
  • to discuss how these practices can be supported and stimulated.

The workshop was invitation-only, and brought together approximately 60 experts. Participants were mostly representatives of agri-food SMEs, but also technology experts, innovation experts, intermediaries (innovation clusters, incubators...), and policy makers.

The agenda and presentations can be found below, as well as a participants list and some photographs in a Photogallery. A report is under preparation and will be added later.

12th International Congress on Innovations in Coronary Artery Disease-ICCAD

15-17 October 2017, Venice, Italy

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.
