12 May 2016 - 16 May 2017, Salzburg, Austria
One of the great successes of the ECTS scientific programme over time has been due to the principle of bridging the gaps between translational research and clinical application.
The Scientific Programme Committee has continued to develop the programme based on this successful format and has created a stimulating and varied agenda. With more than 500 abstracts regularly submitted over recent years ECTS congresses are renowned for their high scientific quality and we expect the Salzburg meeting to be no exception.
We have also noticed an increase in submissions from further afield which shows us that the ECTS audience is definitely spreading well beyond Europe! There will be plenty of opportunities for you to showcase and discuss your work, with a significant proportion of time set aside for oral and poster presentations, which will include poster tours and e-poster options.

From 26 to 28 September 2016, Politecnico di Torino (Turin, Italy) is hosting the 2nd UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) on the SET-Plan Core Priority 3 “Develop and strengthen energy-efficient systems” and Additional Priority 2 “Increase safety in the use of nuclear energy”.
UNI-SET is a FP7 Coordination and Support Action coordinated by the European University Association (EUA) and implemented jointly with KU Leuven, representing the universities in KIC InnoEnergy.
The event in Turin seeks to stimulate discussion and the development of innovative and multidisciplinary research and education programmes through clustering activities, consortia building and knowledge sharing.
The ECEs aim to mobilise the European university community to tackle the “energy challenge”, in the framework of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) and the Energy Union.
The ECE themes are based on the priorities of the SET-Plan.
26-27 September 2016, Seville, Spain
The seminar focuses on two central themes of applied RDI: student engagement in project activities and market-based applied RDI.
The first day presents the different aspects of student engagement in research, including innovative solutions, such as crowdsourcing. Participants will be provided with real-life examples from different European countries on ongoing activities done by and involving students.
The second day focuses on market-based research and cooperation, e.g. on knowledge transfer between higher education and SMEs, innovation vouchers and on development of professional/industrial PhDs. We welcome you to join us in beautiful Seville to network, get inspired and to get more information on the topics.

An on-line public consultation was conducted from 2 March to 31 May 2016 to gather views on what the priorities should be of the forthcoming Energy Union’s Integrated Research, Innovation and Competitiveness Strategy (EURICS). A total of 243 replies to the quantitative questionnaire were registered from a wide range of stakeholders, including research institutions, universities, private sector, public authorities, business associations and civil society.
The respondents set out a number of issues and priorities that should be addressed in the forthcoming strategy, along with proposed actions to be undertaken in these different areas, which in part build on the policy levers available to the European Union: framing the debate on the policy vision, ensuring an innovation friendly regulatory environment and promoting research and innovation of low-carbon solutions in key sectors.
23-24 September 2016, Paris
This event is being co-organized with the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) and is useful for hepatologists, virologists, translational and clinical researchers, health professionals and young trainees.
Topics to be covered include; Epidemiology, Pathogenesis and Virology, HCV Assessment and Treatment, Special Patient Populations, Clinical and Translational Research.
The recent and rapid advances in the treatment of hepatitis C have completely changed the scenario of this disease in the last months. It is not always easy to be updated in the field, due to the huge amount of data coming from a large number of published studies. Antiviral drugs that are still not approved in some countries are already classified as "old" and current treatment regimens may be replaced by new ones by the time the meeting takes place.
The aim of the EASL-AASLD Special Conference is to summarize the information available, as well as to provide a critical review and analysis of the best available data (some unpublished data will be relevant). With this goal in mind, this meeting will give hepatologists, as well as other specialists interested in hepatitis C, the opportunity to catch up with the new advances in the field and be able to apply them in clinical practice.
To reach this aim, an international panel of key experts and participants will actively interact to resolve pending issues and to highlight areas needing further analysis and investigation. Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are available for those interested in making a lasting impression within the global liver community.
Early registration deadline 25 July 2016.
21-24 September 2016, Barcelona, Spain
The 17th Biennial Meeting of the European Society for Immunodeficiencies (ESID 2016) offers unparalleled access to the latest research and analysis in the field of immunodeficiencies.
Meeting participants will gain valuable insights into innovative perspectives in both basic and clinical research
21-23 September 2016, Vienna, Austria
Antimicrobial drug resistance is an urgent problem. There are relatively few agents in developmental pipelines. Traditional pathways for drug development are expensive and slow.
Both the EMA and FDA have recognized some of these obstacles for drug development. New regulation now enables accelerated drug development, with adaptive licensing until larger definitive phase III studies are completed. Such an approach enables access to drugs for patients with unmet medical needs.
21-23 September 2016, Dubrovnik, Croatia
