Open Research Data to Support Sustainable Health Initiatives
24 April 2018, Brussels, Belgium
The open science platform - Frontiers - is pleased to announce its second Data Services Workshop organized in collaboration with the EU Horizon 2020 projects OpenMinTed and OpenUp, in which Frontiers is a full partner, and SwissCore, the Swiss contact office for European research, innovation and education in Brussels.
This year’s workshop focuses on the application of open research data to support sustainable health initiatives. Drawing lessons from recent successes in the use of big data and artificial intelligence in data-intensive health research, it aims to discuss policy challenges and actions necessary in Europe to unleash the full potential of open research data in health for the benefit of society.
The event features panelists from leading institutions and companies specializing in this data-driven health research, together with representatives from academic libraries, patient advocacy, research funders, universities and the European Commission.
Designing FP9 – a closer look on the impact of European cancer research
24 April 2018, Brussels, Belgium
Annual Event by the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers: Cancer is a much feared disease. What is state of the art in cancer research – and how should European research collaborations be designed if we want to make further progress in this field?
Successful collaborative partnerships in cancer research do already exist and could serve as a model for future developments. What actions do we have to take at a European level? Are there risks we do have to avoid?
The event will also provide an outlook on the next EU framework programme: What needs to be done in order to maximize the impact of cancer research? Could it be worth a “mission”?
What in general would be success factors for future missions? By providing latest research examples and insights from science and policy, the Helmholtz Association wants to foster the discussion on a topic that is of concern to so many citizens.

FABULOS Open Market Consultation / Webinar
10 April 2018, Helsinki, Finland
The FABULOS project focuses on how cities can use self-driving minibuses in a systematic way. Six partnering cities are collectively procuring the operations of an automated bus line.
Companies can receive up to 5.5 million euros to support their R&D work in developing systems capable of operating fleets of automated minibuses. The aim of the Open Market Consultation is to gain market insight on state of the art and future developments in the field of automated mini-buses.
In order to achieve this, the tender specifications need to be refined and repositioned in cooperation with the procurers, potential suppliers, bus manufacturers and other specialists in the fields of automated vehicles and urban public transport.
During the Open Market Consultation webinars, the FABULOS challenge, vision and scope will be presented alongside the pre-commercial procurement process.
There will also be room for questions.
FAO e-conference on “The Role of Small Farms Within a Larger Context of Food Security”
19 March - 9 April 2018, Rome, Italy
This e-conference is intended to provide further feedback on what has been learned so far from the work in the EU-funded Horizon 2020 research project on “Small Farms, Small Food Businesses and Sustainable Food Security”, commonly known as SALSA project (for more info: http://www.salsa.uevora.pt/en/)
The e-conference will help identifying key knowledge gaps, as well as to share examples that will contribute to build the SALSA empirical base. Using this second e-conference, the SALSA team wants to catalyse and foster an ongoing dialogue with relevant stakeholders.
This is the second e-conference carried out within the SALSA project. The previous e-conference took place in October 2016. 462 participants provided a total of 99 contributions, which result in a significant input to the SALSA project.
The virtual discussion is intended to draw the attention of researchers, educators, students and a wide spectrum of food chain/food system actors and entrepreneurs, as well as policy makers and administrators at multiple levels, on the role of small farms within a larger context.
