Main Meeting 6 -7 September

 

Together with group leaders from all four nodes, the scientific committee for the meeting aims for a highly dynamic and interactive program that involves research areas of all nodes, helps researchers across the nodes find common scientific ground and consider new ways of working together, and inspires all in the Partnership. To deliver on these goals, the programme of the main meeting features:

  • Two plenary sessions with keynote speakers Oliver Stegle from EMBL-EBI and Janet Kelso from Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology.
  • Sessions of round table talks and posters that are designed to foster high levels of interaction as well as disseminate a wide variety of research updates to engage the whole participating community.  
  • Technology breakout discussions covering a variety of common interests among the institutes

Welcome!
