SMART-map Annual Meeting to be held in Rome

April 5th 2018 events

On 23 and 24 April, the SMART-map consortium will meet in Rome for the second Annual Meeting of the project. The event will be hosted by the communication partner, formicablu, and will take place in Rome. The meeting will be an occasion to discuss project updates and next steps.

On 23 April, members from the consortium will be joined by the RRI Angels and by representatives from SMART-map sister projects COMPASS and PRISMA. The hosts will provide their feedback and comments on the pilots that have been developed and tested in the fields of synthetic biology, precision medicine and 3D printing in biomedicine. A world café session will be focused on identifying the contribution of the pilot phase to the final SMART Maps.

Andrea Porcari from the PRISMA project and Katharina Jarmai from the COMPASS project will contribute to the discussion with updates and feedback from their experiences. The participants will thus have the opportunity to compare common findings and differences among the three RRI projects. The final part of the meeting will be devoted to discussing the ultimate structure of the SMART Maps and the implementation of recommendations received from the Advisory Board.

On 24 April the consortium will meet for the Executive Board meeting.
