Virtual Physiological Human Conference 2014
9-12 September 2014, Trondheim, Norway
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is very pleased to host the 3rd VPH conference by the Virtual Physiological Human Institute. This biannual conference series grew out of the FP7 Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence. It has become one of the major instruments for maintaining the coherence and momentum of the highly multidisciplinary VPH community.
The members of the VPH community subscribe to the view that substantially improved healthcare can only be achieved through converged efforts of the life sciences, the mathematical sciences and engineering. On 14 January 2014 in Strasbourg, Members of the European Parliament specifically endorsed the work of the VPH Institute by recognising the role of the VPH initiative towards improving healthcare in their eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020. VPH2014 participants may thus enjoy the rare claim that they contribute to an initiative that has earned the support of the elected representatives of EU citizens and is directly supported in EU policy.
ExpeER International Conference 2014
24-25 September 2014, Paris
The Earth's rapidly changing environment is putting critical ecosystem services at risk. There are many challenges involved in understanding global environmental changes, and in providing societies with the policy-relevant knowledge base to deal with them. These challenges will reach across many aspects of scientific endeavour.
In this context the Experimentation in Ecosystem Research conference will provide a platform for discussions on cutting-edge technological tools, large-scale integrative experimental design, technical constraints, data access and last but not least ecosystem modelling. The conference will attract speakers and delegates from around the world and will offer opportunities to reinforce global cooperation. Main topics Grand challenges: With the current set of Experimental Research infrastructures in ecosystem science, do we have the capacity to tackle the grand challenges of today and tomorrow? In vitro and in natura : How realistic are they, and how they can be better linked? Technologies: Which emerging technologies could enhance (or are needed for) the performance and services offered by our RIs? Data: Towards an e-infrastructure for ecosystem research - challenges and opportunities Modelling: How accurate is our capacity to forecast and upscale, and what is missing? How can we communicate uncertainty? How do we strike the right balance between modelling and experiments?
3rd GRF One Health Summit 2014
5-8 October 2014, Davos, Switzerland
The 3rd GRF One Health Summit will further develop and strengthen the One Health paradigm and its global movement. In particular this 3rd global gathering will focus on the added value of a global One Health approach and a stronger involvement of the private sector and policy.
The deadline for abstract submission is extended to 30 April 2014. Submit your abstract now on one of the conference topics.
Standards: Your Innovation Bridge
30 October 2014, Brussels
Standardization is an important tool to ensure market access of research and innovation results, under Horizon2020. This conference will engage with leading innovators and policy makers to discuss the role standards play in supporting innovation.

Fujitsu Laboratories Innovation Gathering
2 April 2014, Helsinki, Finland
One of the world’s premier research facilities invites academics, government experts, CTOs and anyone involved in shaping the future of IT and business to an unprecedented opportunity to gain an insight into its R&D activities, look at the latest technologies and discuss how they can be applied to the business environment and to benefit society as a whole. The focus will be on the digitalisation of business and a vision of our digital future, with the key technical themes centring on - Big Data – emphasising data analytics and Linked Data; - The Digital Society – indicating how IT developments can enhance quality of life, security, and how we live.
Research and innovation in the UK - funding, commercialisation and infrastructure
27 March 2014, London
This annual seminar is a timely opportunity to discuss the latest developments in research and innovation policy. Sessions will include discussion of funding arrangements for research, including attracting EU funding, the commercial 'impact' element of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and the effectiveness of R&D tax credits. Priorities for Government investment in science will also be discussed, in light of the planned increase set out in the Comprehensive Spending Review, and the House of Lords Select Committee inquiry into scientific infrastructure - published in November.
The conference will also include focus on steps to improve the commercialisation of UK research including the impact of Catapult Centres - Government-funded hubs bringing together business and universities on particular fields of research - so far and the next steps for the Centres. Delegates are expected to include key policymakers from across Government and Parliament with representatives from Research Councils and other funding bodies, and key stakeholders from universities, learned societies and industry.
