The 3rd Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting, which will take place in Brno, Czech Republic, from May 24 till May 26, 2017.
Brno is the city of Johann Gregor Mendel, a founder of modern genetics and one of the first scientists who applied multidisciplinary approach to explain his observations. Social programme of the meeting will include visit of the Mendel’s Museum and dinner at the Augustinian Abbey, where Johann Gregor Mendel worked and lived.
Instruct is a distributed European Research Infrastructure, which provides scientists with access to all major cutting edge technologies that enable biomacromolecular structure determination at atomic resolution.
Access to all of these technologies has been available to European member researchers from February 2012.
The inaugural Instruct Structural Biology Meeting at Heidelberg in 2013 successfully showcased integrative structural biology and its impact on biological research and biomedicine.
The second Biennial took place in Florence in 2015 continuing the integrative line with an increased focus on innovation.
This new edition will include sessions that represent recent structural biology highlights, emerging methods and technologies and results of biomedical importance.

EMR2017 will bring together researchers and professionals from a broad set of science and engineering disciplines with the aim of sharing on the latest developments and advances in materials and processes involved in the energy generation, transmission-distribution and storage.
The connection is clear between research into novel materials and new technological solutions or improvements in materials, and the development of cleaner, cheaper safer and more efficient energy technologies.
4-6 April 2017, Goethe University Frankfurt
In this project 11 European Universities collaborate with the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre in a consortium of experienced researchers in the field of macro- and financial economics, supported by an advisory board of influential academics of the highest worldwide reputation and policy makers at central banks and finance ministries.
The three-year project (2014-2017) is funded by the European Union and brings together different lines of research to systematically develop new behavioural and institutional model building blocks, to integrate such features in policy-focused models and to make use of these models in a new framework for policy evaluation.

Interested parties are invited to participate in the Nightingale Open Market Consultation meeting, which seeks to inform and prepare companies for the upcoming call for tender on 1 November; as well as gather feedback and suggestions from potential bidders.
The Nightingale project, made up of doctors, nurses and engineers with expertise on managing deteriorating patients and delivering innovation in healthcare, want to design wearable technology that can continuously monitor patients’ vital signs as well as ensuring early warning of actual deterioration in and out of hospital.
Once the design stage is complete Nightingale will challenge health/medical technology companies to produce a robust monitoring and communication device that connect patients, carers and health professionals.
Potential bidders can access a questionnaire from www.nightingale-h2020.eu and those received before the OMC meeting will help shape the agenda.
