FABULOS Open Market Consultation
26 April 2018, Helsinki, Finland
The FABULOS consortium warmly welcomes you to the Open Market Consultation. The aim of the consultation is to gain market insight on state of the art and future developments in the field of automated mini-buses.

The goal of FABULOS project is to deliver a systemic proof-of-concept on automated last mile public transport as part of the urban areas’ existing transport system, based on use of self-driving minibuses for transporting people.
Open Research Data to Support Sustainable Health Initiatives
24 April 2018, Brussels, Belgium
The open science platform - Frontiers - is pleased to announce its second Data Services Workshop organized in collaboration with the EU Horizon 2020 projects OpenMinTed and OpenUp, in which Frontiers is a full partner, and SwissCore, the Swiss contact office for European research, innovation and education in Brussels.
This year’s workshop focuses on the application of open research data to support sustainable health initiatives. Drawing lessons from recent successes in the use of big data and artificial intelligence in data-intensive health research, it aims to discuss policy challenges and actions necessary in Europe to unleash the full potential of open research data in health for the benefit of society.
The event features panelists from leading institutions and companies specializing in this data-driven health research, together with representatives from academic libraries, patient advocacy, research funders, universities and the European Commission.
Designing FP9 – a closer look on the impact of European cancer research
24 April 2018, Brussels, Belgium
Annual Event by the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers: Cancer is a much feared disease. What is state of the art in cancer research – and how should European research collaborations be designed if we want to make further progress in this field?
Successful collaborative partnerships in cancer research do already exist and could serve as a model for future developments. What actions do we have to take at a European level? Are there risks we do have to avoid?
The event will also provide an outlook on the next EU framework programme: What needs to be done in order to maximize the impact of cancer research? Could it be worth a “mission”?
What in general would be success factors for future missions? By providing latest research examples and insights from science and policy, the Helmholtz Association wants to foster the discussion on a topic that is of concern to so many citizens.
