EMBL Conference: Microfluidics 2016

24-26 July 2016, Heidelberg, Germany

Microfluidics is a quickly growing, highly interdisciplinary field at the interface of physics, engineering, chemistry and biology.

Over the past years microfluidic approaches have been used for a variety of applications, including chemical synthesis, nucleotide sequencing, functional genomics and single molecule/ single cell/ single organism studies.

The EMBL Microfluidics Conference 2016 aims to bring together top researchers in the field and to spark scientific exchange, also across different disciplines.

SIS2016: First Conference on Social Impact of Science

25-29 July 2016, Barcelona, Spain

The 1st Conference on Social Impact of Science (SIS2016) will provide a framework where research groups from diverse contexts and domains will be able to discuss these existing good practices, as well as the processes for further improvement and innovation.

Furthermore, SIS2016 will generate new bonds between the different actors involved in this initiative including researchers, scientific agencies, science stakeholders and civil society

Analysing, communicating and improving social impact is one of the most pressing demands to all scientific fields.

Most research groups are willing to assume this task, which is still very difficult due to the lack of indicators, repositories and experiences. Nevertheless, there are some scientific domains where significant steps have been already taken.

There are also some countries where universities and science agencies are very advanced in the construction of these indicators.

Leena Peltonen School of Human Genomic

21-25 August 2016, Hinxton, Cambridge, United Kingdom

This is a uniquely fascinating time in human genetics and genomics, as the field moves beyond the cataloguing of associated variation towards fundamental biological inference and translational implementation.

The programme will cover a range of topics including our current understanding of the genomics of rare and complex human diseases. There will be sessions addressing gene regulation and functional analysis.

The latest advances in sequencing technology and the future of whole genome and clinical sequencing will also be discussed. The schedule is highly interactive with presentations by the tutors and students on cutting-edge topics in human genomics.

The summer school is more akin to a ‘science summer camp’ for graduate students with discussions and debates on the future of human genomics. A unique feature is the one-to-one mentoring on all aspects of genomics, including advice on publishing and pursuing an academic research career.

    Green Week 2016 Partner event: 'Social Innovation for Accelerating Transition to Sustainable Cities'

    30 May 2016, Brussels

    Cities are homes of innovative solutions and alternative social arrangements. Social innovations come in many forms, including nature-based solutions and people-based solutions that hand in hand transform our cities, district-by-district, one infrastructure service at a time. These actor-networks that we call transition initiatives come in various shapes and sizes, led by actors from public, private and civil society sectors or spanning across sectoral divides, and have become increasingly visible in many European cities. Transition initiatives as makers of social innovations in cities foster new relationships, new institutions and, ultimately, can contribute to the emergence of new urban realities: the sharing economy, green low-carbon economies, and new sustainable lifestyles.

    SEMINAR AGENDA

    • Opening
    • Session I: THE KNOWNS – what makes cities accelerate to low-carbon futures?
    • Session II: THE CATALYSTS – power, politics and momentum of urban social innovation
    • Roundtable discussion with questions from audience


    Registration is compulsory and will be open until Thursday 26 May. To register to the event, please click here.

    Venue: Committee of the Regions Van Maerlant Street n°2, 1040 Brussels (EC building VM2 - room VMA 1 - 2nd floor)

    Africa Policy Conference

    23-24 May 2016, Ghana Center for Democratic Development

    As one of its main channels for dissemination and uptake, CDD-Ghana is organizing a policy conference in Accra, Ghana to disseminate findings to key policymakers and other stakeholders.

    The conference scheduled for May 23-24 in Accra, will bring together policy makers and researchers from seventeen countries four continents - Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe - to share their respective research findings, experiences, policy recommendations and how it can impact on national policies aimed at reducing poverty. The conference therefore, has the objective of interacting and assisting policy makers, development partners and government agencies with evidence-based recommendations that can help shape policies and programs to halt poverty.

    For participation and more information, please contact Regina Amanfo-Tetteh regina@cddgh.org or Alberta Adams alberta@cddgh.org
