The Research WG steered by the VPHi in collaboration with the Avicenna Alliance has officially kicked off its activities on 23 Jan 2017.
Composed by 26 members from both industry and academia, the Research WG aims to promote in silico medicine in EU research policy, acting as a consultative group that will provide technical/detailed scientific inputs into policy and fostering mutually beneficial links between Avicenna industry members and VPHi members.
In 2017, the group will focus on the following main activities:
Rolling out the Avicenna Work Placement Programme
This programme seeks to facilitate that students from VPHi member organizations undertake internships at Avicenna Alliance industry members’ premises (e.g. Ansys and University of Leuven/Liege). The rationale being that an internship mechanism is very instrumental for establishing close links between the Avicenna Alliance industry members and the VPHi research members.
Acting as a consultative body for scientific/technical in silico issues
All VPHi and Avicenna members are welcome to participate to the activities of this working group. In case you're interested to join please contact the VPHi manager
