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.

Whilst technology-driven innovation has been a fundamental contributor to the prosperity of Europe, the recognition is emerging that design-driven, non-technological innovation is now also a route to competitiveness.
The economic significance of design is based on its potential as an enabler to create reliable, desirable, user-driven products and services that are ecologically and economically responsible.
Design is not just about the way things look, it is also about the way they work. Design creates value and contributes to competitiveness, prosperity, and well-being in Europe. That’s why EBN and its member EU|BICs strongly believe that Design for Innovation can contribute to:
In this context, the 25th EBN Congress intends to be a strong support to design-driven innovation across Europe and the Action Plan for Design-Driven Innovation, as well as to contribute to achieve the following Commission aims:

The “Cities of the Future 2016” Brokerage Event will bring together 300 researchers, industry professionals, government officials and policy makers from Europe and Turkey.
The event will target the following H2020 calls: -‘Smart and Sustainable Cities’ and ‘Energy Efficient Buildings’ - ‘Factories of The Future’ - ‘Sustainable Process Industries’ and ‘Circular Economy’ - ‘The European Green Vehicles Initiative’.
“Cities of the Future 2016” is meant as a wider concept that encompasses cities' overall energy and resource efficiency with profound economic, social and environmental impacts, resulting in a better quality of life.
In this context ‘Green Vehicles’ play an essential role, as well as further advances in ‘Factories of the Future’ or ‘Sustainable Process Industries’, for increased resource efficiency, new markets, and new jobs.
This event provides a unique opportunity to connect not only with Turkish and European researchers but also with highly qualified research-performing SMEs, making this event an excellent platform to expand networks and create new partnerships for the upcoming calls in Horizon 2020.
3-8 October 2016, Heraklion, Crete, Greece
The goal of this workshop is to foster scientific exchange between scientists working on the chromatin proteome, the dynamic behavior of proteins in the nucleus and the integration and visualization of protein and DNA networks.
There will be dedicated sessions on the proteomic analysis of histone modifications, of defined chromosomal domains and of functional proteomics together with sessions on quantitative proteomics, emerging technologies and bioinformatic analysis of large proteomic datasets and their visualization, with lectures given by leading researchers in the field. There will also be two poster sessions and several short oral presentations by junior researchers that will be selected from the abstracts.
In addition, major features of the workshop will be the one-on-one “Problem-Solving” sessions where junior researchers can “book” a meeting with one of the expert speakers of the workshop to discuss issues related to their own projects and the «Meet-the-experts-sessions» where three experts in each case will discuss in greater detail technical aspects and challenges in their areas of research. The workshop will also include talks on career development and funding opportunities for junior scientists in Europe and abroad.
The workshop will take place at the Aldemar Knossos Royal Resort and Conference Center in Hersonissos, near the city of Heraklion in Crete. The hotel is located 27km from the center of the cosmopolitan city of Heraklion and 25km from Heraklion International Airport which is very well connected to Athens and many European cities.

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.
