nov 15, 2016

Information about the Partnerships MeetUp 2016

On 15 November 2016, the first Partnerships MeetUp took place: an event by and for life science professionals. /We learned more about the key ingredients of successful public-private partnerships, and discussed how to take partnerships to the next level. It was a great opportunity to strengthen existing relationships, and to form new partnerships on the way!

Parallel sessions:

Data infrastructure
TraIT, BBMRI-NL and DTL organized a parallel session in the morning: a hands-on workshop on data management tools for translational research, from Clinical to Imaging to Genomics – including data integration. In addition to generic tutorials, you were able to process your own data and tackle your own data issues. Sessions were led by experts in the field.

Neglected tropical diseases
It included an interesting parallel session on NTDs: "London Declaration on Neglected Tropical Diseases – Quo vadis?" International experts from academia, industry, the government and NGOs shared their experiences and viewed on how the field of Neglected Tropical Diseases R&D has progressed since 2012, and provided a glimpse of what is still required to move forward.

Sharing resources
It included an interesting parallel session on shared resources, organized together with the European Lead Factory, RADAR-CNS, and the Parelsnoer Institute. Experts on biobanks, biomarkers, and biologics gave short lectures on how to take shared resources to the next level, followed by a brainstorm session.
