Within the two days leading experts and specialists from all over Europe will discuss the implementation of recommendations identified by the nanomedicine community that will shape the future of the sector in Europe.
The event takes place in Grenoble, France and is organised by CEA-Leti, a leading French research and technology organisation focused on nanotechnologies and their applications in healthcare.
The event aims to provide further details on the ETPN’s recommendations for nanomedicine under the upcoming Research Framework Programme Horizon 2020, the EU's main instrument for research funding in Europe, launching from 2014-2020.
Patrick Boisseau, chairman of the ETPN, said: “The first line has been crossed with the official renewal of the ETPN as a European Technology Platform, which represents an increasingly key element in the European innovation ecosystem and a main bridge between the community and the European Commission that is needed to implement Horizon 2020.”
He added, “We look forward to welcoming all European stakeholders involved in the nanomedicine field during the ETPN GA at CEA-Leti. Organising our annual event at this widely recognised scientific location will bring the ETPN even closer to the nanomedicine community and will provide participants with the opportunity to visit state-of-the-art facilities on site.”
The event focus on establishing the ETPN’s new action plan with a strong attention on strengthening industry engagement and extending the platform’s community as nanomedical R&D is expected to progress in the upcoming years from the pre-clinical to the clinical testing stage. Furthermore, future milestones will be set for the implementation of the recently released White Paper’s concept elaborated by the NANOMED2020 European consortium to drive innovation across Europe in nanomedicine. The White Paper “Contribution of Nanomedicine to Horizon 2020” can be downloaded on the ETPN website: http://www.etp-nanomedicine.eu/etpn-white-paper-2013.
To support and manage the translation of excellent research into innovative medical products in areas of unmet medical need efficiently, the nanomedicine community strives to set up a Translation Hub as an umbrella of dedicated new infrastructures. Notably, this includes a certain Translational Advisory Board to select, guide, and push forward the top applicable concepts: A novel funding instrument for SMEs, and an EU-NCL infrastructure with the strong involvement of its U.S. counterpart, the Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory (US-NCL) in Frederick, Maryland.
On October 1, following keynote openings from high-level representatives of the French government and the European Commission, selected experts and leading industry specialists will introduce the latest issues evolving around the nanomedicine ecosystem and value chain.
The ETPN GA preliminary programme and online registration form are available on the ETPN Website: http://www.etp-nanomedicine.eu/ga2013.About ETPN

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.
Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
