Getting ready to celebrate European science

The first ENABLE Scientific Symposium “Breaking Down Complexity: Innovative Models and Techniques in Biomedicine”, is gearing up to welcome more than 250 young researchers to Barcelona from 15 to 17 November. The Symposium is mainly organised by and for PhD students and Postdocs from four international institutes, including IRB Barcelona. Covering a wide range of topics, from synthetic biology to translational medicine, the event will involve eight high-profile invited speakers, 16 short talks and 100 posters presented by attendees, and will offer opportunities for career development and outreach initiatives.

Barcelona recibirá 300 jóvenes investigadores en biomedicina en 2017

El IRB Barcelona da el pistoletazo de salida a los simposios internacionales ENABLE, del programa Horizonte 2020, por y para jóvenes investigadores en ciencias de la vida para asegurar la próxima generación de líderes científicos.

Se trata de simposios de tres días de duración, organizados coordinadamente por jóvenes estudiantes de cuatro centros europeos y que integran debates científicos, oportunidades laborales y divulgación de la ciencia.

Tras el de Barcelona en 2017, ENABLE se celebrará en Copenhague en 2018, Nimega en 2019 y Milán en 2020.

“ENABLE is an exciting challenge for young researchers”

One of the faces behind EU Horizon 2020’s ENABLE (European Academy for Biomedical Science) project is that of Clara Caminal, Head of the Academic & International Scientific Affairs Office. She sees the coordination of this European project as “a great success” for the Institute and “a significant achievement” in her career. She is convinced that taking part in the organisation of scientific conferences, the focus of ENABLE, will be “a tremendous experience” for young researchers. “It'll be an opportunity for them to gain valuable experience in organising an international symposium with European partners,” she adds.

Europa apuesta por sus futuros líderes en biomedicina

La UE otorga 500.000 euros del programa Horizonte 2020 al proyecto European Academy for Biomedical Science (ENABLE) para que jóvenes talentos organicen un nuevo formato de simposios internacionales diseñados para apuntalar su futuro científico.

Barcelona acogerá en 2017 la primera conferencia ENABLE. Le seguirán Copenhague (2018), Nimega (2019) y Milán (2020). Las ciudades corresponden con la sede de los 4 centros de investigación participantes en ENABLE.

La iniciativa busca acelerar la ciencia biomédica de excelencia de Europa, fomentar la carrera científica y acercar la biomedicina a la sociedad.

Manuel Serrano: “The best thing about the IRB Barcelona PhD Symposium is the students’ enthusiasm”

Manuel Serrano from CNIO was one of the ten invited speakers who participated in the IRB Barcelona PhD Symposium on 12-13 November. The event attracted many young and senior scientists from all over Europe and covered a wide range of themes. The next event of the series will take place in 2017.
