European Guide and recommendations for the combined funding of large scale RDI initiatives

14 December 2016, Brussels, Belgium

Large-Scale Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) Initiatives also known as LSIs are increasingly playing a vital role across Europe for the development and commercialisation of new novel products and services.

The EU-GREAT! project is exploring the best practices and barriers faced by stakeholders of LSIs in combining funds from different public and private sources.

This Workshop aims at disseminating the main lessons learnt during the project implementation as well as key recommendations for improving the administrative and policy frameworks of public-private funding instruments to ease the combination of funding and stimulate investments.

Liver Disease and Regeneration

12-13 January 2017, Leuven, Belgium

Our progressive understanding of mechanisms involved in acute and chronic liver diseases has led to important improvements in the current management of these diseases.

Basic research in the field of liver- development, cancer, viral infections, fibrosis, and regeneration is important to warrant further insight into the molecular and cellular processes implicated in order to develop novel detection methods and therapies.

This meeting will bring together international scientists working in the field of liver disease. The meeting will provide a unique opportunity to get updated on and discuss new studies in the field of basic liver research.

Topics will include:

  • Mechanisms of liver disease
  • Liver development
  • The role of liver progenitor cells
  • In vitro models to study liver disease
  • Gene therapy and gene editing -Human chimeric mice

Mind, Mood and Microbes - The first international conference on microbiota-gut-brain axis

1-2 December 2016, Amsterdam, Netherlands

The ability of gut microbiota to communicate with the brain is emerging as an exciting concept in health and disease. Mounting evidence, mostly from rodent studies, suggests that gut microbes help shape normal neural development, brain biochemistry, and behaviour.

Bridging the gap between animal studies and application for treatment in humans will be the next big challenge. There are still many mysteries when it comes to understanding how the microbiome might affect the brain.

If research is able to solve even a fraction of them, the microbiota-brain axis could be a powerful target for influencing mood and behaviour, for example in anxiety and depression, as well as preventing or treating brain-related diseases, including (potentially) Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia and autism.

MIND, MOOD & MICROBES – the 1st International Conference on Microbiota-Gut-Brain Axis – is focused on breakthroughs in fundamental research and dissemination of fundamental research towards clinical applications.

The conference is designed for academia, health professionals and health-related industries.

The World Congress on Clinical Trials in Diabetes (WCTD2016)

30 November - 1 December 2016, Berlin, Germany

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in The World Congress on Clinical Trials in Diabetes (WCTD2016), which will take place 30 November - 1 December 2016, in Berlin, Germany.

With the multitude of complex issues associated with clinical trials in diabetes, it is clear that there is a necessity to streamline these issues into a process that will improve drug development in terms of approval and commercialization and address the various aspects of drug and device development and the way to enhance them.

Factories of the Future – Making Innovation Happen

1 December 2016, Brussels, Belgium

Since its launch in 2010, the EU's Factories of the Future partnership has been responsible for the launch of 248 pre-competitive projects which are transforming manufacturing.

The event is focused on the successful industrial exploitation of results from these projects. This event will include ‘Pitch’ sessions which will focus on providing short and to-the-point presentations (‘pitches’) about innovative manufacturing technologies and approaches by projects.

Factories of the Future - Making Innovation Happen is also an excellent opportunity for interested organisations to connect with some of Europe’s leading industrial companies and research organisations.
