Avicenna Alliance invited to Joint Research Centre (JRC) Round Table Meeting in Ispra
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) located in Ispra, Italy organised a Round table meeting on 7 March 2017 to identify possible topics for collaboration between the Centre, the Avicenna Alliance as well as the Avicenna Alliance research member- the Virtual Physiological Human Institute (VPHi), represented by Prof. Lies Geris.
As the Commission’s in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre’s mission is to provide EU policies with independent, evidence-based scientific and technical support throughout the whole policy cycle.
Working in close cooperation with policy Directorates-General, the JRC addresses key societal challenges while stimulating innovation through developing new methods, tools and standards, and sharing its know-how with the Member States, the scientific community and international partners.
The Alliance and the JRC have taken the first step towards a long collaboration which will set out how best we put in place the technical details to make in silico medicine acceptable to regulators and attractive for industries. With the publication of the final version of the MDR which calls for modelling and simulation data to be accepted by notified bodies, there is now an urgent need to begin work on putting this in practice.
