European Health Challenges: The role of imaging technology in addressing key biomedical questions of the future
25 September 2018, Brussels, Belgium
The White Rose Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York are home to some of the top European Centres in Advanced Imaging and Microscopy studying at a macromolecular level the impact of disease on individual cells, using a wealth of first class equipment to conduct world leading biological research.
Hear our panel of experts present their cutting edge research on the use of advanced imaging in the design of new medicines for the future. For the first time, imaging at near atomic level produces amazing pictures of cells actively dividing, incredible detail of organ damage eg to the lungs and investigation of how cells behave when attacked by a virus.
Young Talent and the Blue Economy - Towards a fit-for-purpose training for marine graduates
25 September 2018, Brussels, Belgium
A new vision for marine graduate training in Europe, looking beyond the more traditional silo-based approaches to education, is needed.
To achieve this, it is necessary to examine the complex educational landscape that currently produces professional marine experts; identify some of the key issues and challenges faced by educators; and make recommendations on how to improve marine higher educational training in Europe. The EP SEARICA Intergroup has taken the initiative to organise this conference together with the European Marine Board to discuss with representatives from the research community, the industry and students about what is needed to achieve fit-for-purpose training to ensure that the blue economy benefits from the talent of marine graduates. Don't miss that!
The event will be at the European Parliament/ASP 5G1.
MEDI@4SEC Innovative Market Solutions Workshop and Industry Day
26 September 2018, Brussels, Belgium

HBP School - The Brain Simulation Platform of the Human Brain Project
17-21 September 2018, Palermo, Italy
This school will introduce participants to the Brain Simulation Platform (BSP) of the Human Brain Project (HBP), with the main aim to train users on how to exploit the possibilities offered by the platform to implement cellular level computational models, to use high performance analytics and computing platform systems to configure and run a simulation, and to visualise/analyse the results.
Both short lectures and longer afternoon activities will be delivered at a basic and intermediate level. Through tutorials and hands-on activities, attendees will learn how to interact with the BSP to carry out their own research, to set up and manage a data-driven collaborative project, or to use the BSP to interact with the HBP Neuroinformatics Platform.
Participants will be encouraged to introduce new ideas and suggest ways to use their original experimental data/techniques to implement/use the multiscale neural model they would like to investigate.
