4-5 December 2014, Palazzo Ducale – Genoa, Italy
It is now time to register to be able to attend the conference on Transport Safety Research, on 4-5 December 2014, in Genoa, Italy.

The conference will address both the safety challenges specific to each mode, common issues and concerns that cut across them – notably human factors, automation and data management – taking into account societal challenges, policy requirements, technological developments and economic benefits.
This event is expected to provide useful input towards the definition of a shared European R&I agenda, with pointers to be taken into account in the preparation of next Horizon 2020 Work Programmes, with a view to ensure the proper deployment and implementation of safety solutions resulting from research activities.

Gender Medicine: Harnessing the Power of Sex and Gender Analysis for Research and Innovation
21 November 2014, Maastricht, The Netherlands
Gender Medicine is an emerging novel and highly promising field in health research and biomedicine. It considers specifically the target groups of women and men for disease manifestation and treatment options, following the conviction that targeted approaches will help to optimise treatment strategies for both.
It should not be mistaken for women’s health. Gender Medicine provides increasing evidence on differences between women and men in pathophysiology and in the manifestation and response to treatment of many frequent diseases. The Department of Health, Ethics and Society (HES) organises a conference on Gender Medicine to assess the state-of-the-art of Gender Medicine at Maastricht University and to look ahead to future challenges. The conference will also mark the farewell of Ineke Klinge to Maastricht University. Appointed at the European Commission as chair of the Horizon 2020 Advisory Group on Gender, she will continue to be engaged in this promising research field through international committees and advisory boards.
Attendance is free but registration is obligatory. Please register by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
