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.

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 a.heijnen@maastrichtuniversity.nl.
