After 117 interviews at dairy plants in 14 European countries, 53 interviews with dairy educational institutions and 65 ex-students, AEDIL is now ready to present Results & Recommendations based on the analysis of this vast amount of data.

We are very pleased to invite you to Leeuwarden, The Netherlands on the 26th of November and the 27th of November to:

    • Hear and see the results from this Erasmus+ project ‘Mapping skills needs and supply in the dairy sector’. • Hear the recommendations we wish to give back to the dairy sector based on the analysis of data and inputs from experts. • Give your inputs on how best to roll out the recommendations in your country and at a pan-European level.

The workshop is organised by CARAT in collaboration with BIO.NRW.

Advances in CAR-T cell develoment made with in CARAT will be presented. Further, various aspects such as production, application and reimbursement options for this novel therapeutic approach will be examined. In addition to scientific lectures, a panel discussion on opportunities and threats of the broad application of CAR-T cell therapies from different viewpoints will be held.

ImageEU-funded researchers have developed a fresh 'benign-by-design' approach to balancing the commercial and societal benefits of nanomaterial innovations and their environmental impacts, which are notoriously difficult to pinpoint.

imageEU-funded researchers have demonstrated a new type of biomedical sensor featuring embedded intelligence. The sensor measures ion concentrations but the computing principles have far-reaching implications for all kinds of biomedical and environmental sensing.
imageEU-funded researchers have developed a hands-free, voice-controlled system for smart homes to facilitate and improve the day-to-day lives of seniors and the disabled, enabling them to operate appliances and go online without ever touching a device.
imageMiniscule messenger bubbles floating in all your bodily fluids could hold important insights into many complex diseases from Alzheimer's to heart disease - if they can be isolated, analysed and their messages decoded. An EU-funded researcher has made significant strides toward achieving that goal.

The ​Belgian ​capital ​has ​been ​chosen ​to ​host ​the ​event ​as ​the ​new ​Parliament ​will ​be ​in ​place ​after ​the ​summer ​elections, ​while ​a ​new ​European ​Commission ​will ​be ​in ​the ​process ​of ​being ​formed, ​ready ​to ​formally ​move ​into ​the ​Berlaymont ​not ​long ​afterwards.
The ​event ​will ​be ​held ​under ​the ​auspices ​of ​the ​Finnish ​Presidency ​of ​the ​EU, ​which ​will ​run ​from ​July ​to ​December. The ​Congress ​is ​in ​a ​focused ​format ​to ​allow ​concrete ​issues ​to ​be ​tackled ​and ​to ​have ​a ​dialogue ​with ​our ​policy ​makers. Essentially, ​this ​3rd ​annual ​Congress ​will ​provide ​the ​ideal ​space ​to ​allow ​for ​a ​meeting ​of ​minds ​and ​expertise ​and ​represent ​a ​vital ​opportunity ​for ​top-level ​discussion ​and the ​formulation ​of ​real ​action ​plans, ​for ​example ​in ​the ​area ​of ​translational ​research.
Congress ​will ​showcase ​different ​objectives ​which ​both ​the ​public ​and ​private ​sector ​can ​support, ​with ​a ​view ​to ​allowing ​the ​EU ​to ​present ​a ​common ​objective. Innovation ​and ​the ​incentives ​for ​it ​are ​key ​to ​health ​and ​wealth ​in ​the ​current ​EU-28 ​(and ​will ​be ​even ​more ​important ​after ​the ​UK ​leaves). It ​also ​encourages ​investment ​from ​outside ​of ​the ​EU, ​which ​is ​good ​for ​business ​and ​jobs. It ​is ​clear ​that ​innovation ​needs ​to ​soar ​to ​new ​heights, ​and ​be ​implemented ​and ​integrated, ​for ​the ​bene ​t ​of ​EU ​citizens.
