From March 5th to March 7th, 2013 the VPH Institute directors, Prof. Peter Coveney and Dr. Adriano Henney, participated to this major European Parliament event outlining the work of VPH to policy makers.
This high level European Parliament event brought together science policy makers, scientists and industry representatives from 100 different countries and placed EU research at the centre of the international response to global challenges. It was convened by ISC - Intelligence in Science, in association with the Irish Council Presidency and in conjunction with Mr Sean Kelly MEPand other Members of the European Parliament.
Two of the current Directors of the VPH Institute were invited to give a presentation on different aspects of the VPH research:
Both presentations provided valuable exposure for VPH by introducing a complex topic to policy makers in an understandable manner. The exposure VPH received as a result of being represented at this event will help in future advocacy activities to gain support for the initiative.
