Industrial Biotechnology in Germany. Identifying Hurdles and Opportunities
10 October 2013, Hannover, Germany
The BIO-TIC consortium wish to invite you to a free one-day workshop discussing issues surrounding the uptake of industrial biotechnology in Germany. This is your chance to tell us where the hurdles lie and suggest ways in which they could be addressed. Your input will be crucial in helping us develop an action plan which best addresses the needs of German stakeholders in this strategically important area. This workshop is one of a number of regional workshops being held throughout Europe as part of the BIO-TIC FP7 project, which aims to develop an integrated roadmap and action plan for the successful development of industrial biotechnology in Europe.

30 September - 1 October 2013, Helsinki, Finland
TERENA and SURFnet kindly invite you to the second VAMP workshop on September 30th & October 1st, 2013 in Helsinki, Finland. Goal of VAMP2013 is to foster the deployment of identity management and collaboration tools within the research community. The organisers invite IT architects of international Research Communities, identity federations and providers of (collaborative) infrastructures for research to participate in this interactive workshop.
The design of the workshop is to provide: * structured presentations on exemplar deployments within specific Research Communities, as well as * open discussions for Research Communities architects and infrastructure experts to share use cases, best practices, infrastructural solutions, etc.
VAMP2013 sequels VAMP2012. By the end of the workshop, participants will know about the latest developments in identity federation support for Research Communities, how they can (and cannot) use identity federation, what are the experiences of Research Communities with collaborative infrastructures, and what tools are available for strengthening collaboration. The programme for the workshop will be made available as soon as possible on the TERENA website. Invitation We invite everyone involved in setting up or designing collaborative infrastructures for Research Communities, or otherwise interested, to join us on September 30th and October 1st. We also encourage everyone to provide us with ideas and suggestions for the programme. Research Communities willing to share their experiences with collaborative infrastructures are explicitly invited to forward their suggestions. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org FIM4R & REFEDS VAMP event will be organised in conjunction with FIM4R (Oct 2, organised by ELIXIR Finland) and REFEDs (Oct 2 & 3, organised by TERENA) meetings.
Innovation systems in health economies: Regional, transnational and macro-regional cooperation
26 September 2013, Brussels
Innovation and Smart Specialisation are key instruments to shape the future of a Europe that has smart, inclusive and sustainable solutions for societal challenges. From theory to practice, from “Smart Specialisation” to “Smart Implementation”; now it is time to see how these concepts can become a reality and programmes might be implemented to have a sustainable impact.
Regions play a key role in health care delivery and in the process of adopting innovative solutions in the domain of health care. How can regions collaborate on a transnational stage without compromising the interest of the regional stakeholders? Is it possible to create a win-win situation through sharing of innovations on the product-, process- and system level? To address these questions, this workshop (co-organized by ScanBalt HealthPort, Network of German Health Regions (NDGR) and Health ClusterNET) brings together experts from major European initiatives that have developed strategies in this field. One of the major objectives is to surpass existing boundaries and open the way for inclusion of stakeholders outside the traditional health sector.
