Working on the frontiers between neuroscience and ICT, or medicine and ICT requires basic knowledge in the field of computer science. This workshop complements the online course ICT for non-specialists and provides practical insights into ICT research for young investigators interested in the subject without an ICT background, who require some basics for their research. Lectures and seminars will be accompanied by practical work and open discussion rounds. Experts in various areas of ICT will be available on site. [read more]
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.

The aim of this interactive workshop is to deepen and complete the online course on brain medicine for non-specialists with the most recent advances in research of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. Lectures and tutorials by international experts will report the state of the art of research and treatment of brain diseases. Representatives of the Allen Institute for Brain Science (AI, USA) and the Human Brain Project (HBP, Europe) will present novel avenues for exploiting large biological datasets for future classification of brain diseases, which may lead to new strategies for developing therapeutics.

Could the citizenship rights enjoyed by EU citizens be under threat? Are Europeans fully aware of their citizenship rights - and using them to full effect? In the 21st Century, what does it really mean to be a Citizen of the EU? It’s twenty years since the Maastricht Treaty introduced the idea of EU citizenship – but that citizenship is now under pressure as never before. A 4-year major research project - bEUcitizen - All Rights Reserved? Barriers towards EUropean CITIZENship – has explored these challenges and can now reveal how best to respond to them. The project’s final conference will be held at the Residence Palace, 175 rue de la Loi, 1048 Brussels on 26-28th April 2017. [read more]
An intelligent system developed by EU-funded researchers can provide buses and coaches with firefighting capabilities. This integrated solution is designed to detect, locate and suppress fires quickly. It can address some of them before they even start. [read more]
Big city life can mean a lack of green living spaces, especially in more crowded, less affluent urban areas. TURAS, an EU-funded project, demonstrated ways to add green to the grey - transforming stressful urban areas into more liveable and sustainable spaces where local communities can thrive. [read more]
HLRC 2018 offers delegates the opportunity to hear from and interact with thought leaders and practitioners in health research, policy and practice, who are all working to address global health challenges. Attended by leading academic staff, healthcare industry, researchers, policy makers, funding agency leaders, NGOs, the private sector, health providers and practitioners, and government representatives, the congress offers a perfect opportunity to network, partner, learn and collaborate to drive collaboration in bench to bedside research. HLRC offers the best case studies, most important policy developments and an opportunity to network with other delegates who are aiming to build global partnerships in health research, or implement the latest research results with their patients or hospitals.

The production of cement and lime involves fossil fuels and produces harmful greenhouse gases. Industry could change this, if scientists can develop a technology that can use solar power for high temperature industrial processes. The EU-funded SOLPART project has built lab-scale reactors that use a solar powered process to meet this need. [read more]
Each year the UK Research Office (UKRO) organises a two-day conference aimed primarily at European Liaison Officers, European research managers, Research Councils and policy makers. The 2017 edition of the UKRO Conference will take place from Thursday 22 to Friday 23 June at the Centre for Life in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The conference programme invites a number of excellent speakers to inform and stimulate discussions with conference participants. [read more]
