TOPIM stands for “hot TOPics in IMaging”.
As in previous years, our effort is to concentrate on one aspect at the forefront of Imaging Science, a hot topic.
The overall concept is that experienced, high-level scientists, senior and junior scientists from diverse disciplines are spending one week together in an inspiring environment and to provide a platform for knowledge exchange and discussion.

The last 12 months has seen a staggering amount of progress in ADCs. There are now 50+ compounds in the clinic; with approval of Pfizer's Inotuzumab Ozogamicin expected later this year.
Coupled with this, there is a bulging preclinical pipeline of 92 ADCs and counting. This year's World ADC Berlin (20-22 February) program has been designed to reflect these progressive innovations developing next-generation ADCs.
Bringing together 49 thought leaders in the ADC field; you will hear their lessons learned, discuss new data and debate your future opportunities.
Attend this conference to access intelligence on the latest improvements in developing the next generation of clinically transformative ADCs. World ADC Berlin will help transform your ADC research - today.

CommBeBiz's annual event, funded by the EU, is designed to challenge, support and inform researchers on their quest to innovate in the commercial, social and policy arenas.
Researchers receiving EU public funding have to demonstrate the value they have added to society and commerce from the investment made in them.
Through keynote speakers and workshops, this event will enhance key skills (e.g. RRI, social media, IPR, PR, funding) needed to drive the innovation process, & provide valuable networking opportunities and insights into innovation success stories and stumbling blocks, in bringing Bioeconomy Research to life.
21-22 February 2017, Munich, Germany
In 2017 we are combining the Cell Culture World Congress and the Downstream Processing World Congress, to bring you the Cell Culture and Downstream World Congress 2017, an all-encompassing event covering the whole manufacture and bioprocess life cycle.
We are also introducing our new Formulation, Fill and Finish stream, where we look to cover important issues such as formulating high concentration biologics, freeze-drying for stability and longevity, novel filling technologies and a lot more.
Across the event we will be showcasing exciting new technologies such as CRISPR gene editing, 3D printing of bioreactors and new methods of vaccine production.
Content will include cutting edge research and even more case studies, over 70 presentations from those working in manufacture, bioprocess and formulation, fill and finish in big pharma and interactive sessions with biotechs.

Flow Cytometry is one of the most powerful single cell analysis methods used throughout the life sciences and medicine. Utilising Flow Cytometry we can identify and quantify different from heterogeneous samples, analyse the corresponding state of proliferation or simply detect the expression of fluorescent reporters.
Improvements in assay technology are now enabling scientist to detect mRNAs in cells using flow cytometry.
We will cover the theory of Flow Cytometry and corroborate this information intensively with the practical issues of the most frequent assays as part of our practical course curriculum.
20 February 2017, Brussels
The conference will take place at the representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg in Brussels on Monday, February 20, 2017. Please find the programme attached.

The concluding conference of the EC funded FP7 project ITSSOIN. In a short and concise meeting we want to present and discuss the questions:
(1) Who spurs social innovation in Europe and which organisational traits enable drivers of social innovation to take that position?
(2) Is the Third Sector really better placed to promote social innovation than businesses and public agencies?

With the aim of fostering the Trans-Atlantic dialogue, the Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) is organizing two sessions at the American Association for the Advancement of Science's AAAS Annual Meeting 2017 in Boston:
Scientific Advice Mechanisms for Policy
Saturday, 18 February 2017, 08:00-09:30 am
The session will present the Scientific Advice Mechanism and share the experiences after the first year. In particular, it will flag the role of science academies in providing scientific advice and put the SAM into the international context.
Chair: Wolfgang Burtscher (Deputy Director-General for Research and Innovation, European Commission)
Speakers: Henrik C. Wegener (Outgoing Chair of the SAM High Level Group), Pearl Dykstra (Incoming Deputy Chair of the SAM High Level Group), Sir Peter Gluckman (Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister of New Zealand and Chair of the International Network of Government Science Advice INGSA)
Discussant: Eva Kaili (Member of the European Parliament and Vice-Chair of the Science & Technology Options Assessment panel STOA)
The role of values in delivering science advice for policy
Saturday, 18 February 2017, 10:00-11:30 am
The session will discuss the role of values when delivering science advice in a polarized political atmosphere. The speakers will outline the theoretical framework, but also share practical experiences. Particular emphasis will be given to the role social sciences such as behavioural sciences can play in strengthening scientific advice.
Chair: Hille Haker (Loyola University Chicago)
Speakers: Heather Douglas (University of Waterloo), Mark Ferguson (Chief Scientific Advisor to the Government of Ireland), Pearl Dykstra (Erasmus University Rotterdam and Member of the SAM High Level Group)
Join us in these two sessions organised by SAM, on Saturday 18 February 2017!

In the context of the 1st HBP Student Conference - Transdisciplinary Research Linking Neuroscience, Brain Medicine and Computer Science, young researchers from the fields of neuroscience, brain medicine and computer science receive the possibility to exchange ideas and perspectives and discuss various aspects of their particular fields of expertise relevant to the Human Brain Project.
The conference offers a variety of discussion sessions, lectures and social events. Through working across boundaries and linking the various fields, it serves as a platform for both intra- and interdisciplinary exchange and is a great opportunity for extensive scientific discussions among peers and faculty, and also a fertile soil for new, innovative ideas.
