Mapping new ways for ICT R&D collaboration betwen EU and India
Wednesday 27 May 2009
Deux avancées sont à souligner dans le prochain séminaire qu'organisent l'ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) et l'ERCIM (Consortium Européen de Recherche en Informatique et Mathématiques), deux organismes phares de Sophia Antipolis, les 2 et 3 avril dans les locaux de l'ETSI. La première tient dans le thème même du séminaire : "Bio-ICT : The Heart in the Computer" qui montre ce que l'informatique peut apporter au domaine de la santé.
[BELIEF and CASPAR, supported in particular by CNR, are European projects involving many organisations which were partners of the DELOS Network of Excellence managed by ERCIM.]
The 2nd Edition of the ERCIM-ETSI Infinity Initiative will take place on 2-3 April at ETSI in Sophia Antipolis, France. This year, the theme of this series of advanced seminars will be ‘Bio ICT-The Heart in the Computer', with a special focus on ‘Modelling and Simulation of Organs'.
The event is run in cooperation with the European Commission and is supported by the VPH (Virtual Physiological Human) Network of Excellence, a network of which ERCIM is a core member.
ERCIM opened an office in Brussels in December 2008. As requested by ERCIM's Board of Directors, this will enable ERCIM to strengthen its links with European Commission key players. The new office is ideally located within the premises of our Italian member, CNR, right in the centre of the European quarter. ERCIM is now able to offer a hosting environment for ERCIM staff and ERCIM project meetings in Brussels. The office is headed by Pierre Guisset, formerly head of CETIC.

During the Board of Directors meeting of ERCIM in Porto on 20 and 21 November, the current President of ERCIM, Keith G. Jeffery (STFC, UK) was re-elected as President for a further two-year term starting 1st January 2009.
This is the first issue of the Internal News Bulletin (INB) aimed for wide distribution in the ERCIM community; previously it was restricted to Directors, Executive Committee, Task Groups and Working Groups. I hope this wider circulation helps to keep the ERCIM family intercommunicating even better than before.
ERCIM will have a strong presence at ICT 2008, Europe’s biggest ICT research event to be held in Lyon, France, on 25-27 November 2008.
