An EU-funded project brought together African researchers and stakeholder organisations to define research priorities that could improve results and strengthen the continent's capacity in this field.

With the participation of the Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas, the Portuguese Trade & Investment Agency (AICEP), in cooperation with the Confederation of Portuguese Business (CIP), the Portuguese Agency for Innovation (ANI), the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and Eupportunity, would like to invite you to participate in the third “Innovation Sessions” event, a space to present and debate perspectives on innovative sectors.

The 2018 edition of the Innovation Sessions will focus on Healthcare Systems and Future Therapies. The Innovation Sessions bring together key actors from the European Institutions and main stakeholders from both public and private sector, in an interactive format in view of stimulating the debate and developing partnerships.

The event will take place at the European Economic and Social Committee, in Brussels, from 12h30 to 18h00, including a networking cocktail.

Registration required until 15 May 2018

The Lithuanian Liaison Office (LINO) together with the Czech Liaison Office (CZELO) are pleased to invite you to the SC1 Consortium Building Workshop around selected topics of the upcoming 2019 calls of the Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 1 (SC1- Health, demographic change and wellbeing), which will take place on 18 May 2018 in Brussels at the Permanent Representation of Lithuania (Rue Belliard 41 - 43).

The objective of this hands-on event is to prepare ground for consortia building: to give opportunity to discuss concrete cooperation possibilities, to exchange the expertise and learn from each other.

ImageAn EU-funded project is developing advanced three-dimensional computational and physical models of breast tumours, providing the medical community with powerful new instruments to tackle breast cancer. The initiative will reveal the possibilities for improved diagnostic techniques for detecting a disease that affects one in eight women in Europe at some point in their lives.
ImageIn the long-running fight against malaria in Africa, current anti-mosquito measures are reaching their limits. An EU-funded project has developed new ways to protect people and prevent the spread of the potentially fatal disease.
ImageChronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is now the third leading cause of death worldwide, particularly in low-income settings. EU-funded researchers are working to improve outcomes for populations across the world by ensuring the implementation of best practice based on scientific evidence.
ImageHundreds of millions of people each year are infected with Plasmodium vivax, the most widespread form of malaria worldwide. An EU-funded project is tackling the mosquito-borne parasite, leading cutting-edge research efforts to accelerate the development of effective vaccines.
