EPTRI Virtual Meeting

Home / Media / Events / EPTRI Virtual Meeting

The EPTRI Virtual Meeting, organised by the EPTRI Coordinator, was held virtually on the 1st of December 2020.

The meeting consisted of a half-day session with 10 exciting presentations to sum up the activities carried out so far and the short and long-term ambitions and plans of EPTRI.

Having successfully completed the Design phase of development, the activities to be performed in the Preparation phase have been discussed as well as the EPTRI legal scenarios towards the ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) in view of the ESFRI Roadmap 2021 application performed on 9th of September 2020.

A focus on the EPTRI collaborations with the paediatric networks like c4c, the NIHR Children and Young People MedTech Co-operative, and Research Infrastructures like ELIXIR with the common service on the interoperability of data has also been given.

The ambition to create two new platforms has been presented considering the results of the EPTRI surveys which brought out two neglected fields in paediatrics that are the placenta research and the medical devices development. The work to develop these new platforms is in progress thanks to an active and supportive scientific community.

The event has been characterised by a high rate of participation with more than 130 participants from Academia, Agencies, Networks, ERNs, Patients’ Associations and Research Organisations.
