    Monday, 15 October, 2018

    The 5th CORBEL Medical Infrastructure/Users Forum (MIUF), to be held on 15 October 2018 in Paris, will be held to promote close collaboration, at the pan-EU level, between medical research communities, funding bodies, and medical research infrastructures.

    In particular, its mission consists of promoting the establishment of pan-European scientific communities, providing the scientific content and access to patients, clearly defining the respective roles of infrastructures vs. scientific communities, avoiding gaps, overlaps and fragmentation, capturing the needs of the scientific communities and of the funders in terms of infrastructure services, and of ensuring the appropriate development and deployment of these services by one or multiple research infrastructures.

    The October 2018 MIUF meeting is intended to discuss:

    • structuring of medical research communities at the pan-European level
    • emerging needs of medical research projects in the context of the big data and personalised / stratified medicine approach
    • challenges raised in terms of development and deployment of data services

    Meeting venue: Sorbonne Université – Campus Pierre et Marie Curie, 4 place Jussieu, PARIS
