How European Biological and Medical Sciences Research Infrastructures boost Innovation by Open Access

This meeting, titled 'How European Biological and Medical Sciences Research Infrastructures boost Innovation by Open Access', will take place on 20 June 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. The meeting is part of the Horizon 2020 project, CORBEL, to assess how the 11 Biological and Medical Sciences Research Infrastructures involved in the project can stimulate innovation throughout Europe. A possible avenue for this is through providing open access to their key assets, such as resources, technologies, data and knowledge. 

Topics for the event include the following: 

EuroGOOS International Conference: Operational Oceanography serving sustainable marine development

Side events for The Ocean Conference: Guidelines for Organizers Now Available

Side events sponsored by Member States, UN system and other Inter-Governmental Organizations as well as Major Groups and other stake holders, will be organized daily at the UN Headquarters in New York, in the margins of the official meetings of the Ocean Conference. The proposed side event should be closely related to the overarching theme of the Conference “Our oceans, our future: partnering for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14”. The side event should constitute a potential contribution to the outcome of the Ocean Conference.
