3rd Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting

24-26 May 2017, Brno, Czech Republic

The 3rd Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting, which will take place in Brno, Czech Republic, from May 24 till May 26, 2017.

Brno is the city of Johann Gregor Mendel, a founder of modern genetics and one of the first scientists who applied multidisciplinary approach to explain his observations. Social programme of the meeting will include visit of the Mendel’s Museum and dinner at the Augustinian Abbey, where Johann Gregor Mendel worked and lived.

Instruct is a distributed European Research Infrastructure, which provides scientists with access to all major cutting edge technologies that enable biomacromolecular structure determination at atomic resolution.

Access to all of these technologies has been available to European member researchers from February 2012.

The inaugural Instruct Structural Biology Meeting at Heidelberg in 2013 successfully showcased integrative structural biology and its impact on biological research and biomedicine.

The second Biennial took place in Florence in 2015 continuing the integrative line with an increased focus on innovation.

This new edition will include sessions that represent recent structural biology highlights, emerging methods and technologies and results of biomedical importance.

5th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event will focus on science & skills for renewables integration

2 June 2017, Leuven, Belgium

From 31 May to 2 June 2017, KU Leuven (Belgium) hosts the 5th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) on the SET-Plan Core Priority “N°1 in Renewable Energy”.

The event intends to stimulate discussion among university leaders on the development of innovative and multidisciplinary research and education programmes.

The conference will also offer specific opportunities for “clustering” knowledge, in which research and education leaders from different disciplines will present their views on the specific priorities of the SET-Plan.

The event is the fifth of the series of six events aiming to mobilise Europe’s university community in the field of energy. It carries forward the activities outlined in the “Roadmap for European Universities in Energy” published in December 2016.

Through the event, participants will also have the opportunity to engage in discussions for new paradigms in energy higher education and research in the specific field of renewables integration.

EUA and the UNI-SET consortium have launched a Call for Contributions welcoming proposals for parallel sessions in form of good practices and initiatives (download the Call for Contributions on the event`s website).

The ECE themes are based on the priorities of the SET-Plan

1st HBP Curriculum workshop series - Understanding the brain: Neurobiology for non-specialists

3-5 July 2017, Innsbruck, Austria

The aim of this interactive workshop is to provide practical insights into basic and translational neuroscience research for interested non-specialists.

The topics addressed range from essential neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, over IPS cells, to networks and behaviour. Plasticity and modulation of networks and signal transmission under physiological (like learning and memory) and pathological situations (like addiction, epilepsy or neurodegeneration) will form an essential part.
