The European Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence (VPH NoE) will hold the first of a series of VPH Conferences (VPH2010) from 30th September to 1st October, 2010.

The first meeting will be held in Brussels, supported by the European Commission’s ICT for Health unit, part of DG Information Society and Media.

VPH NoE is an umbrella project representing the Virtual Physiological Human Initiative set up by the European Commission with a budget of €350m for the Framework 7 Program.

The VPH NoE is also responsible for producing a ‘ VPH Vision and Strategy Document’ to inform the next calls for the VPH field for FP7, FP8 and for European large infrastructural actions.

The first meeting will be dedicated to the VPH initiative, bringing together key representatives from VPH groups, industry and clinics.

Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis, unless applications exceed the meeting’s capacity, in which case active participation (submitted abstract) will be considered.
