JSIam : Junior Scientist and Industry annual meeting 17 March

The Junior Scientist and Industry annual meeting (JSIam) is a one-day event dedicated to junior scientists (PhD students and post doc) and industry members. It is an excellent opportunity for both to get to know each other. It's the occasion for industry members to keep up to date with new research results in the academic environment, but also to find new skills and to identify potential future employees for their businesses. Simultaneously, junior scientists can form a better idea about their opportunities to integrate the industrial world and to discover other possible career paths.

Research to Business Oncology Meeting 07 December

This year’s edition will focus on technological approaches to diagnose, treat andmonitor cancer. Nanotechnologies open new perspectives to improve diagnosis or develop more efficient treatments whilst reducing side effects in cancer patients. The use of nanotechnologies in medicine ranges from medical applications of nanomaterials and biological devices, to nanoelectronic biosensors. These include drug delivery, diagnostics, in vivo imaging, modulation of tumor environment...

The plenary round-table will debate the actual successes of the use of nanotechnologies in oncology and the challenges that remain.
