Virtual Physiological Human Conference 2014
9-12 September 2014, Trondheim, Norway
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is very pleased to host the 3rd VPH conference by the Virtual Physiological Human Institute. This biannual conference series grew out of the FP7 Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence. It has become one of the major instruments for maintaining the coherence and momentum of the highly multidisciplinary VPH community.
The members of the VPH community subscribe to the view that substantially improved healthcare can only be achieved through converged efforts of the life sciences, the mathematical sciences and engineering. On 14 January 2014 in Strasbourg, Members of the European Parliament specifically endorsed the work of the VPH Institute by recognising the role of the VPH initiative towards improving healthcare in their eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020. VPH2014 participants may thus enjoy the rare claim that they contribute to an initiative that has earned the support of the elected representatives of EU citizens and is directly supported in EU policy.
