Health Leaders Research Congress, Berlin, Germany

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.

Only the most dynamic and relevant keynotes, speakers and case studies are selected to be part of the two-day agenda. The programme is filled with thought-provoking addresses, high-level panel discussions and in-depth case studies, along with informative posters and exhibitions.

All proceedings, presentations and posters from the congress are published online and are completely open access.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Neural circuits in the past, present and future, Heidelberg, Germany

The goal of this symposium is to promote interactions between researchers studying neural circuits both in traditional model systems (worm, fly, fish, mouse), in humans, and in diverse, emerging models to

  1. discuss the origins, commonalities and differences of animal nervous systems,
  2. highlight the spectacular capabilities of neural circuits to control animal behaviour, and
  3. reflect on how technological innovations will open up new possibilities to understand and repair the nervous system.

By bringing together a unique and eclectic mix of scientists studying nervous systems from the molecular to the psychological level, this symposium should stimulate novel cross-fertilisation of ideas and methodologies to understand neural circuit structure and function.

3rd Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting, 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.

13-14 June 2017

1st ECSEL JU Symposium, Portomaso, St. Julian's, Malta

A wide range of European and global stakeholders in the Electronics Components and Systems field, including Industry, Research and Financial Communities, European, National and Regional decision-makers and international partners will get together in Malta on 13/14 June 2017 in the background of our annual event.

This event aims to provide an unique opportunity and space for the ECSEL funded projects to present their progress and results to date, to disseminate the scientific and technological achievements, and to cast light on their contributions to the programme.

The event will run over two days:
Day 1 focuses on ECSEL JU projects’ results and achievements in key areas (e.g. Smart Health, Production, and Mobility and Semiconductor technology for IOT), while Day 2 is dedicated to a more strategic exchange featuring high-profile key note speeches and panel discussions.

This event is organised under the auspices of the 2017 Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union. High-level representatives from Malta have already accepted our invitation to elaborate on the role of Malta and its perspectives in the ECS sector.

17-19 July 2017

1st HBP Curriculum workshop series - Intellectual property rights, translation and exploitation of research, Leimen, Germany

This “hackathon” style workshop completes and complements the online course on Intellectual Property Rights, Translation and Exploitation of Research.

Students will work in small groups around joint applied research ideas in Neuroscience that the students will offer and conceive by themselves.

The participants will study how to advance their ideas from the lab to market, understand the needs, the target population, patentability options and how to build a business model. Finally they will present their ideas to industry and academy experts.

The workshop is a hands on unique experience of diving into the entrepreneurial world, learning how to advance the science into the next step.

20-22 September 2017

Shaping the future of pediatrics, Rome, Italy

“Shaping the future of pediatrics” is the first conference on the innovation in pediatrics in Europe. It will be at the intersection of pediatrics with different disciplines and will involve pediatricians, nurses, researchers, patients, entrepreneurs, and specialists in different areas in the field of innovation in pediatrics.

The conference will include sessions on –omics, Big Data, Patient empowerment, and The cycle of innovation in pediatrics.

27-29 September 2017

6th European Conference on Corporate R&D and Innovation CONCORDi 2017, Seville, Spain

CONCORDi 2017 is the bi-annual European Conference on Corporate R&D and Innovation.

Organised by the Joint Research Centre in association with the OECD, CONCORDi 2017 aims to identify the research, business and policy challenges in this area for the decade to come, and to provide guidance to the EU industrial research and innovation policy agenda.
