The RItrain project will be holding a workshop for the research infrastructure (RI) community from 20 to 21 November 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.
The Clinical Research Facility at St James’s Hospital and the Trinity Centre for Practice & Healthcare Innovation (TCPHI), Trinity College Dublin, in collaboration with the HRB Trials Methodology Research Network (HRB-TMRN), will host a two-day Winter School focusing specifically on issues relevant to conducting trials of digital health interventions.
The next meeting of the CORBEL Medical Infrastructure Users Forum (MIUF) will be held on 6 December 2019 in Brussels. The main topics will be the progress made so far in building a collaborative framework between medical research communities and pan-European Research Infrastructures, and how to get ready for the future European Open Science Cloud. In particular, the meeting will explore the ways in which the MIUF's work can be continued in the 'EOSC-Life' project (in which ECRIN is also involved).
The HRB-TMRN (Health Research Board-Trial Methodology Research Network) is delighted to welcome some of the world’s leading experts in trial methodology to Malahide, Dublin on December 6th, 2019, for its 5th Trial Methodology Symposium. The theme for this year’s event is 'Clinical Trial Design – partnering pragmatism with complexity to achieve excellence'.
The RISCAPE project will be holding its final meeting on 9 December in Brussels, during which the Landscape Analysis Report will be presented.
The Report is the main result of the RISCAPE project. It analyses the position and complementarities of the major European research infrastructures (RIs) in the international RI landscape, by research area.
All 'ESFRI' fields are considered: Energy, Environment, Health & Food, Physical Sciences & Engineering, Social and Cultural Innovation and e-infrastructures.
The EOSC-Life project will be organising several thematic workshops, the first of which will be on pseudo-anonymisation of health data. This event will be held with project partners in Paris from 22 to 22 January 2020.
In collaboration with the European Commission, ECRIN will be organising the 5th European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) Network meeting, which will take place in Paris from November 8th to 9th, 2016 at the Ministry for Higher Education and Research (25 rue de la Montagne Sainte-Geneviève).
The meeting will bring together representatives from ERICs, national governments and the European Commission, as well as research infrastructures planning on applying for ERIC status.
The kickoff meeting for the Clinical Research Initiative for Global Health (CRIGH) will be held from 12 to 13 October in Paris, France. CRIGH is a follow-up to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Global Science Forum (GSF) initiative, which was introduced in 2008 to foster international cooperation in non-commercial trials.
ECRIN will host a meeting in Paris on 12 October 2016 to discuss the CORBEL user survey. The survey was sent to medical research communities to capture their needs in terms of tools and services.
Meeting participants will include members of the medical infrastructure / users forum (MIUF), a body of scientific experts that has been created as part of CORBEL. (ECRIN is leading the work package in charge of this activity.)
ECRIN will organise the second workshop of the patient-level data task force in Milan from 6 to 7 October 2016. The task force aims to develop a common framework to provide access to anonymised, patient-level clinical trial data for re-analysis / meta-analysis in Europe. This initiative is in line with a recent editorial from the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors requesting a data-sharing plan as part of the study protocol (N Engl J Med 2016; 374:384-386).
