11. Research Headlines - New production method to cut costs of meningitis drugs

The weakened immune system in people with HIV/AIDS makes them particularly vulnerable to fungal infections such as cryptococcal meningitis, which can be deadly. The medicine used to treat the condition is flucytosine, and EU-funded researchers have developed a new and more efficient way of producing it. This will cut production costs, making it more affordable for people in low-income countries. [read more]

12. Social Innovation – Research and Policy of the Future: towards a comprehensive innovation policy - 24-25 October 2017, Brussels

The conference, titled "Social Innovation – Research and Policy of the Future: towards a comprehensive innovation policy" on 24th and 25th October in Brussels, is going to be one of the key events on social innovation in the year 2017. It is planned to explore the future of social innovation research and policy by bringing together leading social innovators, academics and politicians to discuss: - the state-of-the-art of conceptualising and doing social innovation on a global scale; - methods and good practices to create desirable social change; - resources, means and levers making social innovation processes effective; and - an international comparison of social innovation practices, policies and research.

17. 1st HBP Curriculum workshop series - ICT for non-specialists - 21-23 June 2017, Paris, France

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]

18. 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.
