Interested in setting up an international project with partners from the Netherlands and other countries?

University Medical Center Utrecht and regional parties together with the Dutch National Contact Point for Horizon2020 and the Enterprise Europe Network will organise 2 days dedicated to project building for research and technology innovation and funding information.

Focus of this Healthy Urban Living event is to build international partnerships and set up projects on novel research ideas.

Through site visits, information sessions, demonstrations, pitches, workshops and pre-arranged one-on-one meetings we aim to facilitate your participation in EU Horizon 2020 and Eurostars programmes.

Science Café with Cyril Höschl is an unconventional open discussion on research in the field of neurosciences.

Our guest is director of the National Institute of Mental Health in Klecany, Czech Republic, member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts and former president of the European Psychiatric Association and the Federation of European Academies of Medicine.

Professor Höschl is one of the founders of the psychoneuroendocrinology. His scientific work is focused on biological psychiatry, clinical psychopharmacology, psychoneuroendocrinology and human ethology.

Professor Höschl lectures psychiatry at the Third Faculty of Medicine of the Charles University. He is an honorary member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and International Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association.

Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.

Image of hand with a red heartEU-funded researchers have developed and tested a way to make human heart valve implants more tolerable and longer lasting, enabling recipients of all ages to avoid follow-up surgery and live largely normal lives, cutting hospital stays and healthcare costs.

This could lead to new ways of tackling weight gain, eating disorders and even psychiatric conditions such as anxiety and depression.
Picture of the field trials with spelt, plot and different genotypesMinor species of cereals - such as spelt, oat and rye - could provide European consumers with healthy, nutritious food that is sustainably produced. An EU-funded project is looking to bring these underused crops from farm to table by improving their genetic and commercial viability.

The EU-funded Dropsa project is working with 26 partners in Europe, Asia, New Zealand and North America to find safe and sustainable ways to protect Europe's fruit industry.

DG Research & Innovation invites you to take part in the two interactive sessions organised at the European Health Forum Gastein.

    • Workshop on 4 October: "Personalised healthcare: How rare diseases pave the way", will focus on rare diseases research and care in Europe, the use of "omics" & Real-World Data, health data infrastructures and health data policy. • Session on 5 October: "Environment & Health: Building the evidence base for policy", will highlight the important role research plays in establishing and maintaining a strong evidence base for policy-making in the steadily evolving area of environment and health.
