Save the date – Eighth EDCTP Forum from 6-9 November 2016

20 October 2015

EDCTP’s Eighth Forum will take place in Lusaka, Zambia from 6 to 9 November 2016. EDCTP invites all stakeholders to support and attend this conference and requests all interested parties to save this date.

The theme of the Forum will be: Defeating poverty-related and neglected diseases in Africa: harnessing research for evidence-informed policies.

In its current biennial format, the conference brings together speakers and delegates from research institutions and universities especially in Africa and Europe; global consortia, public-private partnerships and product development partnerships; other public and private organisations working on poverty-related and neglected infectious diseases; as well as from governments, regional bodies and industry. It provides an excellent networking opportunity as well as platform for the exchange of new results and ideas in clinical research.

More information regarding the programme, registration, abstract submission and sponsorship opportunities will be made available on the Eighth Forum website which will be launched in December 2015.
