In Silico World Slack:
Prof Marco Viceconti’s research team at the University of Bologna has launched an online Community of Practice hosted on the Slack platform, called “In Silico World”. The aim of this Community of Practice is to collaboratively develop and share best practices in In Silico Trials, to tackle the lack of established industrial best practices around the use of modelling and simulation, especially within the regulatory process, and to foster the adoption of in silico medicine technologies.
We encourage all VPHi Members who have an interest in the topic of In Silico Trials to join the platform. If you are interested, please send an email to Roberta De Michele: 
Full details on the initiative can be found here:

EU-STANDS4PM online survey "Data sources and in silico methods in personalized medicine"
EU-STANDS4PM is a Coordinating and Support Action funded under the Horizon2020 framework programme of the European Commission. A major task of the project is to initiate an EU-wide mapping process in collaborative research to evaluate strategies for data integration and data-driven in silico modelling approaches. Its aim is to develop standards, recommendations and guidelines for predictive in silico methodologies in personalized medicine. 
Part of this process is the online survey “Data sources and in silico methods in personalized medicine” they have just started to distribute to collect information for the proposed EU-wide mapping. 
Our contacts within the European Commission has specifically requested the inputs of the VPH Institute Community to the survey, so we would like to ask your collaboration in responding to the questionnaire:

The deadline is 30 Nov 2019

Best regards
VPHi team
