Horizon Europe - ERC Synergy Grants (ERC-2023-SyG)
The aim is to provide support for a small group of two to four Principal Investigators to jointly address ambitious research problems that could not be addressed by the individual Principal Investigators and their teams working alone. Synergy projects should enable substantial advances at the frontiers of knowledge, stemming, for example, from the cross-fertilization of scientific fields, from new productive lines of enquiry, or new methods and techniques, including unconventional approaches and investigations at the interface between established disciplines. The transformative research funded by Synergy Grants should have the potential of becoming a benchmark on a global scale.

New Call Opening Soon: Transnational Networking Groups on Chronic Pain (expected to be launched on September 9th 2022)
Chronic pain imposes a massive burden to the individual, the health system, and the economy worldwide. It leads to a severe reduction in the quality of life of those affected and their families. Patients' daily activities such as work and social interactions are heavily impaired. As a consequence, chronic pain can lead to sleep problems, depression and anxiety. The underlying mechanisms are often not understood. Thus, a networking call in the field of chronic pain is now launched under the umbrella of the ERA-NET NEURON.

Mental health repercussions of the COVID-19 crisis
22 de Septiembre (12:00 - 13:00) | Registro
The mental health impact of the COVID-19 crisis is a major public health concern. The spread of SARS-CoV-2 has placed unprecedented strains on society. Known risk factors for poor mental health heightened (e.g., insecurity, unemployment), whereas protective factors (e.g., social connections, daily routine) declined drastically. Impressive data collection efforts have been made early-on in the crisis to investigate the mental health burden of the crisis on the Belgian population.

They have invited three leading researchers in the field to share their findings on the mental health impact during the COVID-19 crisis.

Capacity building webinar: Learning from journeys in literature reviews of COVID-19 research
11 de Octubre (10:30 - 12:30) | Registro
Literature reviews are a powerful tool to summarize research evidence. In this capacity building webinar, several members of the PHIRI (Population Health Research Infrastructure) project will share their experience applying different approaches to manage literature reviews summarising COVID-19 research. The course will start with a presentation about the types of reviews and basic concepts of literature reviews of population studies, including the methodological steps of these types of studies and the differences between the types of outcomes. In the second part, researchers from PHIRI will share their experiences performing literature reviews on COVID-19 evidence. Finally, a practical exercise will be conducted using the free online tool Rayyan.

Target audience: PHIRI partners, graduate students and researchers interested in conducting literature reviews. Basicknowledge about literature reviews is recommended but not required.


2022 International Conference on Research Infrastructures

The 2022 International Conference on Research Infrastructures will take place in Brno, Czechia.

International Conference of Research infrastructures, organised jointly by the European Commission and the host country, is a major worldwide event providing an opportunity for strategic discussions about international cooperation in research infrastructure.  The upcoming ICRI in 2022 will take place in Brno Czech Republic from 19 to 21 October.

A variety of experts and stakeholders discuss challenges and emerging trends, highlighting the essential role of research infrastructures.

We are pleased to announce, an ICRI 2022 side event dedicated to “Integrated Service for Infectious Disease Outbreak research” which will held as an hybrid event on 19 October 2022.

European research infrastructures demonstrated a high adaptability in responding to the COVID-19 emergency, by rapidly revising their access programmes and delivering new services which answer unmet needs.

As one of the first actions of the European Health Emergency preparedness and Response Authority (HERA), ISIDORe, “Integrated Services for Infectious Disease Outbreak Research”, was launched in 2022, coordinated by ERINHA the European research infrastructure dedicated to high-consequence pathogens.  

The event will highlight ISIDORe’s actions and showcase opportunities for accessing ISIDORe’s resources, to address the challenge of any emerging or re-emerging infectious disease threat.

Registration and Agenda coming soon! 


FEAM Forum Annual Lecture Digital Health and AI
26 de Octubre | Registro
Benefits and Costs of Data Sharing in the EU

Transition towards artificial intelligence and digital health. Is Europe ready? 

The topic of this year's FEAM Forum Annual Lecture will be Digital Health and AI: Benefits and Costs of Data Sharing in the EU. The event will be on 26 October 2022, between 14:00 and 17:00 (CET) and will take place in a hybrid format, in Brussels and via Zoom.

Digital technology is rapidly evolving, holding great promise in improving healthcare systems. This new technology has a huge positive impact in all areas, but it also leads to major consequences and challenges on regulatory and policy frameworks. While the world has faced the outbreak of a novel coronavirus disease, by using a wide range of services – such as telemedicine, storage of electronic medical records, virtual education – digital health has contributed positively to the resilience of the healthcare system. Those tools build upon advances in Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI), two major options for improving healthcare innovation.
