    Tech Transfer Course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/tech-transfer-course-55a9b56b-9f9c-47ee-8646-b194d3b0888f This technology transfer course will give you a flavour of: How to find out if patents exist around your new findings and how to protect your invention? What steps are necessary to commercialize your work? What does it take to set up a spin-off company? Different ways of turning your research into value for society. Supported by speakers from companies and investment firms, VIB’s Innovation & Business Team will go into detail on real life valorisation approaches. We will discuss the basics of Intellectual Property Rights, including a hands-on patent search on your favourite topic. We will go through term sheets and contracts that shape the framework of industrial collaborations and investments. We will have a lively case study to highlight the potentially complex relationships between scientist, valorisation manager, and company representative. On top of that, you will be introduced to the various stages of setting up a start-up company. We warmly invite participants to submit a short abstract on a potential business idea prior to the start of the course, so we can select a number of topics for the Newco pitching exercise which will be held in small teams. We will invite you to submit your abstract in the course of June, after you received more information on the requirements for your abstract via email. 2021-08-23 09:00:00 UTC 2021-08-27 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent, Zwijnaarde, Belgium Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent Zwijnaarde Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []

    Elixir node event
    New Horizons in Alzheimer's Disease (Hybrid edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/new-horizons-in-alzheimer-s-disease-hybrid-edition Alzheimer’s Disease research is accelerating with exciting new insights into molecular and cellular mechanisms. This upcoming conference brings together some of the thought leaders in the field with young investigators to stimulate discussion and interaction. We anticipate further insights into the triangle amyloid, Tau and neuroinflammation and how these might provide novel therapeutic approaches. The following topics will be the focus of this conference: - Genes and environment - Synapse and circuitry - Mechanisms and models of disease - Seeds and spreading of disease Next to an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities (both live and virtual) during the breaks, poster sessions and the conference dinner. **Information for poster submissions** The format for your poster should be: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation. The best fourteen abstracts will be given a short talk slot in the plenary program. No registration is needed before submitting a abstract. The deadline for abstracts is 27 August 2021. All accepted poster submissions will have a chance to win one of the two SAO Poster Prizes. **SAO sponsored Travel grants and registration waive** SAO will sponsor 10 poster presenters (PhD or postdoc) for a travel grant plus registration fee waive. Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 30 July 2021. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance by the end of August. **Speaker line-up** *Session 1: Genes and environment* - Lucía Chávez Gutiérrez VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research, BE - Christopher Glass University of California, San Diego, US - Steven A.
