Systems Biology Breakfast meeting: Industry Focus

back to list of events


On the 2nd June 2015 the Infrastructure for Systems Biology Europe (ISBE) will organise a breakfast event in Brussels to present the results of the survey carried out to industrial participation in the systems biology in Europe and life science community as well as the overall achievements so far in building the ISBE research infrastructure. A discussion about industry needs and their involvement in the next steps of the infrastructure will also take place.

The Infrastructure for Systems Biology Europe (ISBE) which is an EU funded project under the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme (FP7) is currently in the preparatory phase. The overall goal of the ISBE infrastructure is to create a pan-European infrastructure for systems biology that empowers scientists to understand living organisms to a much higher level of precision and in a predictive way. http://project.isbe.eu/

Carole Goble CBE, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Manchester and a senior member of the ISBE consortium, will chair the event and ISBE representatives from a number of leading systems biology centres in Europe, including the UK, Germany, Netherlands and Ireland, will be in attendance.

Target audience of this event are industry, European Commission officials, ISBE representatives and relevant associations.
