Upcoming Events

  • New date for INFRAFRONTIER Conference 2020: 7 to 9 October 2020 in Brussels

    07. – 09. October 2020

    INFRAFRONTIER, the European Research Infrastructure for developing, phenotyping, archiving, and distribution of genetically modified mouse and rat models, has decided to postpone its annual scientific conference. The INFRAFRONTIER Conference 2020 with its  focus on “Targeting Cancer with Animal Models” had originally been scheduled for 22 to 24 June 2020 in Brussels, Belgium will now be postponed to 7 to 9 October 2020, same location.

    The reason for postponing the conference is the current coronavirus crisis which makes it impossible to organise a public event with 200 experts from all parts of the world before the summer break. In a virtual council meeting headed by Prof. Martin Hrabe de Angelis, Scientific Director of INFRAFRONTIER, the principal investigators (PI) of many partner institutes agreed that the decision was inevitable for now. They also recommended that the conference should be held in Brussels in autumn, when everybody hopes that the COVID-19 crisis will be over in Europe. The agenda and venue will stay the same as planned for the cancelled date in June. New registration will be opened in due time.

    The fight against cancer in every existing form is one of the five big Mission Areas the European Union has defined for its next 7-years framework programme for research and innovation: Horizon Europe (2021 to 2027). EC policy officers and the Cancer Mission Board will present latest information about this promising endeavor at the event.

    The conference agenda consists of presentations on the impact of cancer models on cancer research as well as science policy talks focusing on cancer. Apart from showcasing exciting research involving preclinical cancer models, this conference is intended to be an interaction platform for cancer researchers and policy makers.

    The main objectives of this conference will be to:

    • Present latest research on innovative cancer models
    • Showcase INFRAFRONTIER services for cancer research
    • Align the scientific strategy on cancer mouse models with the Horizon Europe Cancer Mission

  • CORBEL Final Meeting 2 March & EOSC-Life AGM 3-4 March in Brussels

    02. March 2020

    Due to travel restrictions in northern Italy because of the Corona virus, the location of the CORBEL Final Meeting (as well as the EOSC-Life AGM) has been changed to Brussels, Belgium.

    We realise that a short-notice move is inconvenient and might incur extra costs, nevertheless we believe it is important to not cancel or postpone the project AGMs. Especially for CORBEL, with the project ending at the end of May, it would be very challenging to find a new date, venue and start from scratch with the organisation.

    We would ask you therefore to please state whether or not you will attend by FRIDAY 28 FEBRUARY via this new Eventbrite page https://meetings_in_brussels.eventbrite.co.uk (THE HOTEL)

    Travel and accommodation information can be found in Eventbrite too.

    The Agendas stay the same: CORBEL and EOSC-Life

    Please accept our apologies for the last minute move, but we hope to see as many of you next week nevertheless! Many thanks for your understanding!
