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.
The PERMIT (PERsonalised MedicIne Trials) project will hold its kick-off meeting on 24 January 2020 in Paris.
The Horizon 2020-funded project will establish recommendations to ensure the robustness of personalised medicine trials.
PERMIT has received funding from Horizon 2020 under grant agreement number 874825.
The final CORBEL meeting will take place on 2 March 2020 in Florence, Italy. The consortium will present their solutions for harmonising user access to the European life science research infrastructures (RIs), comprising topics such as access, data or quality management, training, ELSI and innovation support. Presentations by scientists from the biological and medical user communities will illustrate how concerted access to multiple RIs advanced their projects, thus demonstrating the benefit of CORBEL for European life science research.
The RE(ACT) Congress & IRDiRC Conference 2020 will take place in Berlin, Germany from 11 to 14 March 2020.
The RI-VIS Africa-Europe Symposium will be held on Monday, March 23rd and Tuesday, March 24th, 2020 in Cape Town, South Africa.
The two-day symposium will bring together staff from the European infrastructures and South African and other African research infrastructures and institutions who might be interested in collaborating. Representatives from relevant funding agencies as well as policy makers are invited to join.
The aim is to foster collaboration and initiate networks in a sustainable way so that all stakeholders benefit.
ECRIN's celebration of International Clinical Trials Day (ICTD) will be held on May 19th, 2020 in Berlin (Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus Berlin, Luisenstraße 58/59, 10117 Berlin, Germany). The topic will be (patient-)recruitment in clinical trials. More details to come!
The second ICPerMed Conference will take place from 15-16 October 2020 at the Maison de la Chimie in Paris, France.
HEALTH NCP-Net 2.0 is jointly organising (with BBMRI-ERIC, EATRIS-ERIC, ECRIN and ELIXIR) a webinar to learn about the aims and activities of these research infrastructures (RIs) and how to involve and benefit from them within a Horizon 2020 project.
The second part will be a Q&A session.
Research and innovation lie at the heart of Europe’s economic strategy and make a critical contribution to the development of its society and cultures.
The aim of this workshop is to explore ways in which the return on investment in research can be assessed and evaluated. The workshop will also address the question of the future of RIs, the conditions of their success and the effectiveness of their dialogue with society.
The inaugural Keystone Symposium About Rare Diseases will take place at the Vienna BioCenter from 11 to 14 November 2018.
The conference will examine the current and future bottlenecks to gene discovery, disease modeling, and therapeutic approaches for the estimated 7,000 known rare diseases, and suggest strategies to accelerate progress in this regard.
CORBEL's next Annual General Meeting will take place from 16 to 17 October in Paris.
The CORBEL project aims to establish shared services between the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures Biological and Medical Sciences Research Infrastructures (ESFRI BMS RIs)–which includes ECRIN–for the biomedical research community.
