European nanomedicine technology group to meet on 14-15 Oct
4 Oct 2010
The 5th General Assembly & Annual Forum of the European
Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN) will take place at Centro
Congressi Fondazione Cariplo in Milan, Italy on 14 and 15 October 2010.
The European Science Foundation is also supporting a conference on
nanomedicine on 23-8 Oct at Sant Feliu de Guixols, Spain .
The European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine is an
industry-driven initiative set up together with the European
Commission. The event is dedicated to the members of ETP
Nanomedicine and to the European Nanomedicine Community at large.
“Nanomedicine is experiencing substantial and continued interest
from the research community as well as from the industrial and
societal side. The event will provide an excellent opportunity to
exchange current ideas, trends and possibilities with the European
key members”, says Bertrand Loubaton, Director at GE Healthcare and
chairman of the Technology Platform.
This year the ETP will essentially focus on discussing strategic
opportunities for the Nanomedicine stakeholders coming from
industry, academia, clinics and the public sector. The European
Commission (DG RTD) will also be present to discuss the development
of the European Nanomedicine policy.
A key target of this forum will be to raise awareness for
translational research, clinical needs and necessary conditions to
make nanomedicine happen in Europe. In particular, this year’s event
will focus on the identification of industrial opportunities and
needs, on the strategies for adapting regulations, funding schemes
and infrastructures, on clinical challenges and on translational
strategies of Nanomedicine.
The program includes:
- regenerative medicine;
- proposals & technology Offers;
- strategic activities of the ETPN; and
- educational track.
For the first time an 'open presentations session' will be
offered to the participants to present their latest project designs
or technology offers.
