OLISSIPO: Strengthening Computational Biology
Olissipo “Fostering Computational Biology Research and Innovation in Lisbon” is a twinning action, meaning that stands for institutional networking to strengthen a specific field of research. The OLISSIPO project aims to bring these disciplines together with biological and biomedical research and strengthen INESC-ID’s research profile in computational biology.
Susana Vinga is the principal researcher involved in this special widening action.
OLISSIPO is a joint effort by INESC-ID, EMBL’s Huber group , the French National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology (INRIA) in Lyon, and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich).
The project will focus on key applications of statistics in molecular biology research, for example in single cell analyses and simulations, and the mathematical modelling of cell–cell interactions.
Group leader Wolfgang Huber and his team will contribute their expertise in developing statistical methods and computational tools, and will prepare tutorials, training courses, and outreach activities, and welcome scientists from INESC-ID to EMBL Heidelberg. The ultimate goal of OLISSIPO is to establish a leading European cluster of excellence in computational biology in Lisbon.
INESC Brussels HUB Winter Meeting | JAN 25-26, 2024, in Porto
The INESC Winter Meeting, organized in collaboration with INESC Holding, is scheduled for January 25th and 26th, 2024, and it will be held in the city of Porto.
On January 25th, the primary goal is to bring together individuals from all five INESC institutes, fostering an environment that encourages networking, forging new connections, and collectively engaging in a forward-thinking exercise regarding the future of our research fields and the positioning of the INESC group within the European landscape.
There will be a welcome lunch, followed by an afternoon dedicated to collaboration, openness, and curiosity. The event will have a participatory approach, and will be guided by Dirk Stockmans, a highly experienced facilitator who has worked for the European Commission for the last 30 years.
Furthermore, all INESC researchers are invited to submit proposals for e-posters to be displayed at the Winter Meeting. Deadline for submissions is December 10 and more information is available here.
On January 26th, a senior administration and management committee will be held. Participants will be selected by each institute administration by invitation only.
If you would to take part on the 25th of January, please register here by November 30th.
The INESC Brussels HUB website will soon share more information about the venue and uptaded agenda.
