5th CORBEL Medical Infrastructure-Users Forum (MIUR)

Monday, October 15, 2018 - 10:30 to 18:30
Paris, France

The 5th CORBEL Medical Infrastructure/Users Forum (MIUF), to be held on 15 October 2018 in Paris, will be held to promote close collaboration, at the pan-EU level, between medical research communities, funding bodies, and medical research infrastructures.

In particular, its mission consists of promoting the establishment of pan-European scientific communities, providing the scientific content and access to patients; clearly defining the respective roles of infrastructures vs. scientific communities, avoiding gaps, overlaps and fragmentation ; capturing the needs of the scientific communities and of the funders in terms of infrastructure services ; and of ensuring the appropriate development and deployment of these services by one or multiple research infrastructures.

The October 2018 MIUF meeting is intended to discuss:

  • structuring of medical research communities at the pan-European level
  • emerging needs of medical research projects in the context of the big data and personalised / stratified medicine approach
  • challenges raised in terms of development and deployment of data services

Meeting venue: Sorbonne Université – Campus Pierre et Marie Curie, 4 place Jussieu, PARIS
