First Dialogue Event to be held in Aarhus

January 12th 2017 precision medicine

The first SMART-map Dialogue Event is approaching. On 16 and 17 January, Aarhus University (Denmark) will host a workshop to discuss responsible research and innovation in the precision medicine field.

What are the needs and expectations of users of precision medicine products and services? Participants will be encouraged to reflect on this and more questions. The event will be structured as a co-creative workshop, where members will not only discuss but also produce a concrete tool. This will be a prototype of a “blueprint” for responsible innovation: a theme-specific list of actions and concrete steps that innovators in precision medicine field can take, in order to assure that their research and development processes comply with the RRI principles.

The Industrial Dialogue will also be an occasion to gain an overview of the precision medicine sector: a keynote speech will inform the audience on current developments in this field.

Members from diverse institutions and organisations (mostly from Denmark) will participate in the workshop. Among them are representatives from industries, associations, hospitals, universities, think thanks and more. Participants will thus meet in a productive environment and will connect with colleagues with different backgrounds and perspectives.

The next Dialogue Event on precision medicine will be held in Valencia (Spain) in April 2017.

More events will be organized on the other SMART-map topics, 3D printing in the biomedical field and synthetic biology. On 6-7 February the first 3D bioprinting Industrial Dialogue will take place in Munich. If you are interested in having more info about the next dialogues, please write to
