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.
ImageEU-funded researchers are using the latest vaccine technologies and antigen discovery tools to develop a multi-stage, multi-antigen vaccine against Plasmodium falciparum, the parasite responsible for the deadliest form of malaria.

Annual Event by the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers: Cancer is a much feared disease. What is state of the art in cancer research – and how should European research collaborations be designed if we want to make further progress in this field?

Successful collaborative partnerships in cancer research do already exist and could serve as a model for future developments. What actions do we have to take at a European level? Are there risks we do have to avoid?

The event will also provide an outlook on the next EU framework programme: What needs to be done in order to maximize the impact of cancer research? Could it be worth a “mission”?

What in general would be success factors for future missions? By providing latest research examples and insights from science and policy, the Helmholtz Association wants to foster the discussion on a topic that is of concern to so many citizens.

ImageAn EU and industry-funded project is helping researchers tap into Europe's treasure trove of electronic health data, saving them time and money in their quest to cure and develop better drugs for debilitating diseases. The effort has already led to promising findings linked to Alzheimer's and obesity.

Each year the UK Research Office organises a two-day conference aimed primarily at European Liaison Officers, European research managers, Research Councils and policy makers.

The 2018 edition will take place from Thursday 21 until Friday 22 June at the National Oceanographic Centre in Southampton, UK. The UKRO Conference 2018 will include a number of expert speakers, predominantly from the European Commission and its Executive Agencies in Brussels, but also from the UK Research Councils.

EU funding practitioners and evaluators will also help to inform and stimulate discussions with the participants. Registration is now open!

Book your place before 20 April 2018 for the early bird rate.

Image of pediatrician with child during the vaccinationGlycoconjugate vaccines provide highly effective protection against disease. But so far, they have been developed by time-consuming trial and error. Now, an EU-funded project is building up knowledge and skills to better design these vaccines in a bid to bring treatments to patients faster and keep European pharmaceutical innovation competitive.

The open science platform - Frontiers - is pleased to announce its second Data Services Workshop organized in collaboration with the EU Horizon 2020 projects OpenMinTed and OpenUp, in which Frontiers is a full partner, and SwissCore, the Swiss contact office for European research, innovation and education in Brussels.

This year’s workshop focuses on the application of open research data to support sustainable health initiatives. Drawing lessons from recent successes in the use of big data and artificial intelligence in data-intensive health research, it aims to discuss policy challenges and actions necessary in Europe to unleash the full potential of open research data in health for the benefit of society.

The event features panelists from leading institutions and companies specializing in this data-driven health research, together with representatives from academic libraries, patient advocacy, research funders, universities and the European Commission.

An EU-funded project focusing on indigenous communities in Ecuador is exploring traditional perceptions and the ways in which other cultures affect them. New insights could help inform the design of policies to support migrant or marginalised populations from traditional backgrounds.
