Combined platform meeting

EATRIS Combined Platform Meeting: Prague, September 26-27 2017

Our annual Combined Platform Meeting will take place on September 26-27, 2017 at the Corinthia Hotel, Prague, directly after the EATRIS Conference, Translational Medicine 2017: Enhancing Predictivity in Medicines Development organised on September 24-26.

The combined platform meeting is an internal meeting restricted to the EATRIS product platform members. Last year’s programme aimed at fostering cross-platform interactions. This year’s agenda will focus on implementing the EATRIS disease working groups identified under the EATRIS survey and will allow the exchange on technologies and practices across specific diseases, together with identifying the translational gaps and formulating solutions to address them.

The meeting will start after lunch time on September 26. The first day will be organised around the disease working groups with parallel sessions, whereas the second day will gather all platforms in one plenary session to align on the platform’s strategy and platform’s objectives. The meeting will close after lunch time on September 27.
