Implementing the Science and Innovation Strategy
29 January 2015, London, UK
The UK Government's Innovation Strategy is due to be released alongside the 2014 Autumn Statement. This timely conference will bring together key policymakers with stakeholders central to the strategy's implementation to discuss the likely impact of the proposals and the challenges for putting policy into practice.
At this early stage we expect topics for discussion to focus on priorities for public spending on science, efforts to boost private investment in R&D and further steps Government can take to support business and university collaboration to increase the commercialisation of UK research. Sessions will also include discussion on the the impact that Government's focus on 'eight great technologies' has had so far and the next steps for developing these technologies in the UK.
Stress Biology and Crop Fertility Conference
18-22 March 2015, Sorrento, Italy
We are pleased to announce the 3rd Conference organized in the framework of the SPOT-ITN project
(Marie Curie Actions, Initial Training Network, EU Grant Agreement No 289220).
The conference will bring together approximately 20 speakers of outstanding international reputation and different background covering various scientific aspects and the young scientists of the SPOT-ITN consortium.
Speakers will provide an overview of recent developments and approaches in the field and will share with the audience their thoughts and ideas for future avenues in their research.
We hope this symposium will attract not only established scientists, but also international graduate students and postdocs interested in the field.
Topics include: Global Stress Response - Hormone Signalling - Sexual Plant Reproduction - Epigenetic Regulation of Plant Reproduction - Metabolic, Proteomic and Genomic Networks in Stress and Development.
Abstract for Poster and Oral presentations are welcome and registration for all interested participants are now open.
Brain Conferences 2015: Bridging Neural Mechanisms and Cognition
19-22 April 2015, Copenhagen, Denmark
The goal of the conference is to examine the possibility of identifying a small set of bridging laws linking neuronal codes to identified cognitive computations. We specifically focus on how the brain represents and manipulates quantities, probabilities, objects and symbols, and uses them to perform high-level cognitive inferences and confidence judgements.
Application for the conference is now open. Early registration deadline: 22 January 2015 Regular registration deadline: 16 February 2015
Registration includes abstract submission and poster presentation
