EATRIS Annual Meeting 2020

Date & Time February 11 - 12, 2020
Location Lisbon, Portugal

The EATRIS annual event will take place on February 11-12, 2020, and will be hosted by the EATRIS-Portugal National Node at INFARMED in Lisbon.

During these two days, we will exchange best practices and further define together the role that EATRIS will play in the development of Personalised Medicine. We will also discuss how to fully exploit the capacities of the Infrastructure to serve the needs of the patient community and how to develop technologies that will support the implementation of patient-targeted interventions. The deadline for event registration is January 15.
You can register by following this link.

Help us shape our event by describing in one sentence the most relevant areas of Personalised Medicine’s development in which EATRIS can play a significant role (challenges, opportunities, collaborations, etc.). Submit your answer here, it will take only one minute.

The event will be followed by our public-private collaboration best practices workshop on February 13 and 14. You can view the agenda of this workshop here and register by clicking here.

Like in our previous edition, presentations for the plenary sessions will be selected from submitted abstracts and a networking session will be organised with poster presentations.

You can submit your abstract here. The deadline for abstract submission is November 30, 2019.
