SIS2016: First Conference on Social Impact of Science

25-29 July 2016, Barcelona, Spain

The 1st Conference on Social Impact of Science (SIS2016) will provide a framework where research groups from diverse contexts and domains will be able to discuss these existing good practices, as well as the processes for further improvement and innovation.

Furthermore, SIS2016 will generate new bonds between the different actors involved in this initiative including researchers, scientific agencies, science stakeholders and civil society

Analysing, communicating and improving social impact is one of the most pressing demands to all scientific fields.

Most research groups are willing to assume this task, which is still very difficult due to the lack of indicators, repositories and experiences. Nevertheless, there are some scientific domains where significant steps have been already taken.

There are also some countries where universities and science agencies are very advanced in the construction of these indicators.

EMBL Conference: Microfluidics 2016

24-26 July 2016, Heidelberg, Germany

Microfluidics is a quickly growing, highly interdisciplinary field at the interface of physics, engineering, chemistry and biology.

Over the past years microfluidic approaches have been used for a variety of applications, including chemical synthesis, nucleotide sequencing, functional genomics and single molecule/ single cell/ single organism studies.

The EMBL Microfluidics Conference 2016 aims to bring together top researchers in the field and to spark scientific exchange, also across different disciplines.

19-20 July 2016, Budapest, Hungary

The “Triple-Helix Conference on Biobased Economy” is one of the major events of the FP7 funded Danube-INCO.NET project. Its main objective is to support the university-business-government cooperation (triple-helix model) to enhance the establishment and development of biobased economy partnerships in the target countries, tackling societal challenges in the field of food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, water research, biobased economy and bioenergy.

The conference will include a plenary round table and three parallel sessions (on food, materials and environmental technologies and energy) during the first day, while a brokerage event to facilitate matchmaking between researchers, industry and government will be organised in the morning of day 2. 

Back to back with the conference, the Danube-INCO.NET 4th Clustering Workshop will be held, aiming at the formation of new macro-regional partnerships towards the development of biobased economy, with particular focus on linking challenge-oriented research, innovation networks, industry and government. Organizer Regional Centre for Information and Scientific Development - on behalf of Danube-INCO.NET

Evolutionary Biology and Ecology of Cancer

11-15 July 2016, Hinxton, United Kingdom

The focus of this first year will be the ecology of tumour microenvironments, which have a dramatic effect on the behaviour of cancer cells.

This course is aimed at researchers currently working in cancer and/or evolution and ecology. It is particularly suited to evolutionary biologists and ecologists interested in moving into cancer research, and to cancer biologists and oncologists who lack formal training in evolutionary biology.

Applications are invited from early career scientists, including post-graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and new principle investigators.
