A culture of collaboration
International symposium in honor of Prof. Dr. Peter Meier-Abt
The University of Basel, together with the Research Ethics Committee of the Canton Zürich and swissethics, invites you to an international scientific symposium.
The aim is to discuss how scientists, clinicians, regulators, research ethics committees, academic institutions, and funding agencies share responsibilities to enhance value and progress in science and medicine. This was a key concern of Prof. Dr. Meier-Abt as a researcher and former Vice President of the University of Basel.
National and international speakers from renowned universities will present cutting-edge examples of data sharing and collaboration between various actors that are vital to foster high quality international biomedical research. Concrete steps will be debated regarding how to overcome present shortcomings, enhance translation in biomedicine, and strive towards a culture of collaboration.
Professor Peter Meier-Abt (1947–2021) was Vice President for Research at the University of Basel from 2005 to 2011. From 2011 to 2016, he chaired the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences.
Participation in the symposium is free but subject to prior registration.
