International Rare Disease Research Consortium Shenzhen Conference
7-9 November 2014, Shenzhen, China
The second conference organized by IRDiRC in collaboration with the BGI is gathering stakeholders active in the field of rare disease from across the globe. This conference aims to raise awareness of the topic of rare diseases around the world and to foster international collaborations involving Chinese researchers and clinicians.
It will provide unmissable opportunity to network with different rare disease communities from Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia-Pacific. We hope this will encourage and motivate investment of research and social resources in the field of rare diseases, to ultimately improve the diagnosis, treatment, and care of patients and their families.
10 years ERA-NET Bioenergy - Research results and future strategies
11 November 2014, Hanover, Germany
RESEARCH FOR THE AGRI-FORESTRY SECTOR, BIO-BASED INDUSTRIES, ENERGY CONSUMERS AND FOR SOCIETY - This conference brings together selected key members of the agri-forestry sector to showcase the results of innovative projects in the fields of sustainable forest management, optimised use of lignocellulosic resources, biogas production and energy crops.
We will also take a policy view of the sector and discuss strategic direction, suitability and use of Era-Nets for the agri-forestry sector.

New ways of delivering HE - MOOCs and technology-enhanced learning
21 October 2014, London
This conference looks at the future for Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) - and the increased use of technology-enhanced learning more widely in Higher Education. It comes as government pushes for the UK to become a world leader in online learning and also follows a Higher Education Academy review of flexible pedagogies, with the technology-enhanced learning strand published in January.
Sessions will focus on the development of MOOCs, including their potential for online learning and Transnational Education, as well as concerns around implementation and accreditation of modules and the possible threat they pose to traditional teaching. Other key themes are likely to include outcomes and recommendations from FutureLearn's BETA pilot courses running currently. Delegates will also discuss ways in which Higher Education is currently taught and the increased influence technology is having on this, for example the greater use of blended and e-learning. We are delighted that Dr Alison Le Cornu, Academic Lead, Flexible Learning, Higher Education Academy and Stephen Haggard, Author, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills Research Paper, The Maturing of the MOOC and Independent Consultant, Online Learning have agreed to deliver keynote addresses at this seminar, together with a senior speaker confirmed from HEFCE.
