2nd GRF One Health Summit
17-20 November 2013, Davos, Switzerland
Following a very successful launch of the first GRF One Health Summit in February 2012, GRF Davos is pleased to announce the 2nd GRF One Health Summit 2013 which will take place from 17 - 20 November 2013 at the Davos Congress Centre in Davos, Switzerland.
The 2nd GRF One Health Summit will further explore, advance and agree on the need for a global integrative risk management approach for One Health. Furthermore, the conference will identify ways to achieve added value by multi-sectorial and multi-stakeholder cooperation and promote enhanced public-private partnership models for risk-based financing tools.
The findings of the conference shall be used to make recommendations on policy and organisational changes and stimulate a more efficient collaboration between stakeholders. Registration and Abstract Submission are open now.
Submit your abstract today and present at the 2nd GRF One Health Summit 2013. We encourage you to explore our website and get further information on the One Health concept and the 2nd GRF One Health Summit.
PROSUITE Final Conference
30 October 2013, Brussels
PROSUITE is an EU Integrating project for PROspective SUstaInability Assessment of TEchnologies. We combine technology forecasting methods with life cycle approaches, to integrate economic, environmental and social sustainability dimensions in a standardized, comprehensive, and broadly accepted way. Attend our final conference to learn about our new integrative framework that goes beyond the traditional 3 pillars to identify five major impact categories. See how case studies in 4 areas have applied the PROSUITE assessment approach, and test out our Decision Support System freeware/open source tools.
NanoFATE project Open Day - Nano ecotoxicology and safety assessment
25 September 2013, Wallingford, UK
NanoFATE Coordinator Claus SVENDSEN (NERC-CEH, UK) invites you to attend our Open Day (preceded by a 2-day OPEN PhD WORKSHOP - ask us about it!) On Wednesday 25 September in Wallingford (near Oxford, UK), Jason UNRINE (U. Kentucky) gives a US perspective on nano ecotoxicology. NanoFATE's own S. LOFTS & K. van GESTEL (CEH, VUA) deliver latest results on engineered nanoparticle bio-availability. Peter DOBSON (UOxf) tells of the future of nanoparticles. A. JOHNSON & R. WILLIAMS (CEH) show how NanoFATE aids integrated risk management. Please register or inquire via email@example.com
Environment and Health – Bridging South, North, East and West
19-23 August 2013, Basel, Switzerland
The ISEE (International Society for Environmental Epidemiology), ISES (International Society of Exposure Science), and the ISIAQ (International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate) invite you to the 2013 conference in Basel, hosted by the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (SwissTPH).
The conference aims at presenting recent scientific achievements in the field of exposure science and environmental health from all relevant disciplines and covering a broad range of topics.
It is the place where scientists from all continents will meet. This is the first-ever joint conference of three leading scientific societies dedicated to improving public health.
The conference will feature – among other issues – the following key topics:
- Methodological challenges for global environmental epidemiology
- Environmental risks in the context of rapid urbanization in resource-poor settings
- Environmental susceptibility and resilience due to genes, co-morbidities, and socio-cultural and socio-economic factors
- Life course environmental epidemiology
- Linking science and policy through impact assessment
- Indoor and outdoor environmental interventions to improve health
- Water, sanitation and health linkages
- Linkages between agriculture, environment and diseases of poverty
Effect of climate change and climate variability on environment and health
- Health impacts of natural resources development and management (e.g. extractive industry, water-resource developments)
Dublin's Festival of Curiosity
25-28 July 2013, Dublin
Dublin’s annual festival of science & culture with FREE events for families to take place from 25 – 28 July 2013. 2012 saw a unique year long celebration of science in Dublin as over 600, 000 people took part in Dublin City of Science 2012 celebrations. Although that year may be over a brand new Festival has evolved from the energy and excitement it generated.
The Festival of Curiosity, Dublin’s annual Festival of Science and Culture, will take place for the very first time this year from 25-28 July. The Festival will provide new opportunities for adults, families and children to come together and experience a hands on adventure in science, play and curious technology. The Festival will transform Dublin’s City Centre into a fun filled curiosity hub for four days in July, with free day-time events for families & children, accompanied by an evening programme of interactive science debates, discussions and shows that will intrigue and challenge the most curious of minds.
