During our 2nd Community Meeting, 85 EU-LIFE members presented main results of the 7 Working groups we have established, focusing on Grants, Science Communication, Translational Research, Technology Transfer, Training, IT and Indicators of Excellence. In addition to sharing best practice and benefiting from each other’s expertise and experience in all these domains, we have initiated several joint actions which were presented during the meeting.
We were honoured by the presence of two distinguished guests:
- Alessandra Luchetti, European Commission, Head of Unit, Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, who presented her vision of how an alliance such as EU-LIFE could be an interesting partner for the European Commission.
- Iain Mattaj, Director of EMBL, who as our scientific advisor gave us thourough feedback on the organisation and achievements of our alliance
