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.

The INTERCO-SSH project sets out to assess the state of the Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH) in Europe and to understand the factors that facilitate or hinder international exchanges. It aims to outline potential future pathways that could promote cooperation across disciplinary and national boundaries.
The project uses the tools of the SSH to study the SSH in their socio-historical context, including their relationship with the political and economic powers. It compares the process of institutionalisation of seven academic disciplines in order to identify the sociological factors that have shaped the “academic unconscious” of scholars. Furthermore, it investigates the transfer of knowledge between countries and disciplines, the geographical mobility of scholars and the circulation of ideas.
INTERCO-SSH project is the first large-scale comparative project of the institutionalisation of seven disciplines in the SSH – Economics, Sociology/Demography, Political Science, Anthropology, Philosopy, Literature, Psychology/Psychoanalysis – in seven countries from 1945 until now (Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Hungary, Argentina). It also analyses exchanges between those countries and other areas: the US, Latin-America (Brazil), and countries in the Global South.
The approach combines three perspectives:
· Constructing patterns of institutionalisation of the SSH
· Mapping the exchanges between countries and disciplines
· Analysing the circulation of paradigms, theories, methods and controversies
