Systems Medicine - From Data to Clinical Application

The goals of this symposium is to connect people and groups working within different areas of relevance to systems medicine to share information, find new partners, solve problems and to be inspired to apply for funding from future calls. We also want to get input from Norwegian research environments with regards to what needs to be in place to advance this field further.

If you are working within systems medicine or want to start to employ this methodology, then this symposium is for you. We strongly encourage researchers, clinicians and companies to participate.

Register by August 31 at

Participants of this symposium will get the following:

  • Updated information regarding relevant national calls and EU-calls
  • A better understanding of what is happening internationally within this field
  • A larger network with potential collaboration partners
