    Tech Transfer Course https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/tech-transfer-course-55fa806f-9e39-49d7-87ed-9af27cbce588 In short, the technology transfer course is designed to give you an idea of: How to find out if patents exist around your new findings and what to do to protect your invention; What steps are necessary to commercialize your work; The VIB-approach to starting innovative companies, and Different ways of turning your research into value for society. In the annual Technology Transfer course, the VIB Innovation & Business Team, supported by external speakers from industry, will go into detail on the practicalities of real life valorization approaches. We will discuss the basics of Intellectual Property Rights, including a hands-on patent search on the topics for the pitch exercise. We will go through the 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, Innovation & Businessmanager and company representative, and give an overview of the various stages of starting a new venture. If you want to participate, you will be asked to submit a short abstract on a potential business idea prior to the start of the course, for selection of topics for the Newco pitching exercise (in groups). More information will follow via email when we receive your registration. Please note that who submits an abstract will get priority to attend the course. Submitting your abstract will be possible on the website in the course of June, after you received more information on the requirements for your abstract via email. 2020-08-24 09:00:00 UTC 2020-08-28 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent, Zwijnaarde, Belgium Bio-Accelerator Meeting Center Ghent Zwijnaarde Belgium 9052 [] [] [] [] [] []

  • Deep learning in biology, autumn session

    31 August - 18 December 2020

    Elixir node event
    Deep learning in biology, autumn session https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-in-biology-autumn-session Large amounts of data and compute resources have enabled the development of high-performance machine learning models. This is particularly due to deep learning techniques. By looking at many data samples, these models can find structure in the data that is useful for predictive and explorative analysis: e.g. classification, clustering, data generation, dimensionality reduction, etc. The most popular applications within biotechnology are concerned with image segmentation, diagnostics, sequence analysis, etc. However, deep learning models are far from straightforward to implement correctly due to the many different hyperparameter settings, optimization procedures, architecture choices, etc. In this course, we will make use of Jupyter Notebok and Keras, which are both based on Python, to apply deep learning techniques on both bio informatics and bio image informatics data. We aim to work towards applications that participants would like to study. 2020-08-31 09:00:00 UTC 2020-12-18 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core [] [] [] [] [] []

    Elixir node event
    ReproHack - A hackaton on reproducible data analysis https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/reprohack-a-hackaton-on-reproducible-data-analysis During a ReproHack, participants attempt to reproduce published research of their choice from a list of proposed papers with publicly available associated code and data. This approach should provide a low-pressure environment to actually get working with other people's code and data. Besides evaluating the analysis of papers, this hackaton is also about working together, networking and learning from each other!  Disclaimer: It’s imperative to note that this event is by no means an attempt to criticize or discredit work. We see reproduction as beneficial scientific activity in itself, with useful outcomes for authors and valuable learning experiences for the participants and the research community as a whole. Nominate a paper We accept nominations from anyone. Both researchers that have submitted a paper and would like to test whether one of your own papers is reproducible, and researchers that want to dig into the code of another paper! Either way, we encourage proponents to seek consent from the original authors for their nominations. Nominate a paper via this link. The papers will be assembled and showcased before selection via this link.  Register as participant Join us at the hack to dig into exciting science, learn more about reproducibility, working with other people's code and data and more. 2020-10-20 09:00:00 UTC 2020-10-20 00:00:00 UTC VIB Bioinformatics Core [] [] [] [] [] []
