Picture of doctor examining a childEU-funded researchers have developed a treatment tailored for babies and children lacking the stress hormone cortisol. The drug, the first hydrocortisone formulation specifically designed for infants, could become available next year following successful clinical trials.
Picture of the underwater world - cone snailEU-funded researchers have uncovered how venomous sea snails manufacture organic molecules with important applications in treatments for pain relief and diabetes. This basic research also offers unexpected, new insights into the field of cell biology.

For the ninth time, the conference invites researchers and entrepreneurs from North Rhine-Westphalia and regions in Europe to find new European Research & Innovation (R&I) partners for Horizon 2020 projects.

The series of events has been a great success with over 2300 participants since 2009. The event addresses especially universities and research institutes and small and medium-sized enterprises.

Participants, who are interested in giving a presentation, can participate in the "Call for Presentations" (ideas for H2020 projects and/or results from former international R&D&I projects).

The H2020 MSCA ETN Network List_MAPS welcomes you to its symposium which will be held in the historic town of Kinsale, on the south coast of Ireland on Thrusday 26th April 2018.

Contamination of foodstuff by pathogenic microorganisms is a major safety issue and a burden to the food industry. Many routes may lead to food contamination from farm to fork.

The symposium will address several facets of the ecology of foodborne pathogens.

Women holding their hands togetherMost rare diseases are linked to specificities of the patients' genes - but what these are, exactly, remains to be determined for the vast majority of these illnesses. Tackling this challenge, an EU-funded platform is helping to generate answers from as few as two known cases by enabling scientists to pool and compare genomic and clinical data.

We are pleased to invite you to the kick-off meeting of the strategic project of ten leading life science institutions from nine EU-13 countries.

The main objective of the event is to present Alliance4Life, a bottom-up initiative aimed at closing the divide in European health research and innovation. Alliance4Life intends to become a role model for institutions in less performing regions and to serve as a hub of excellence through close collaboration with renowned European networks established in high performing countries.

The initiative is supported by the Coordination Action „Alliance for Life Sciences: Closing Research and Innovation Divide in the EU“ under H2020 and coordinated by Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC).

Little happy girl get an injectionEU-funded research has shown how skin cells can warn our immune systems of an impending bacterial attack, offering the potential for vaccines against antibiotic-resistant infections that could save lives.
