EuroBioForum 2008 - Call for Expressions of Interest Now Open



Members of the life sciences research and funding communities are invited to submit Expressions of Interest for life science research themes that demand a coordinated European approach for their financing and implementation. Following a selection by the International Steering Committee, six prioritised research themes addressing future life science challenges will be presented and discussed by researchers, funding organisations and other stakeholders at the annual EuroBioForum conference to define, develop and coordinate future research programmes. The next EuroBioForum will be held in Strasbourg, France on 18-19 September 2008.



The Call for Expressions of Interest is available in pdf version at www.esf.org/eurobiofund/eoi.

Deadline: 6 February 2008 at 17.00 CET



See www.esf.org/eurobiofund for further details, or contact Dr. Wouter Spek at wspek@esf.org or Dr. Fiona Kernan at fkernan@esf.org.
