Emergence & Convergence (2007-2010)

This serie of meetings was organized with Nature Publishing Group

A partnership with Nature Publishing Group, which publishes the scientific journal Nature and journals in various fields of biology and medicine, has been established to consider “Emergence and Convergence”, a series of one-day meetings. Covering some of the most fascinating aspects of current progress in science, these meetings afford the privilege of seeing new concepts and new fields emerge; the convergence between existing fields; cross fertilisation between disciplines; as well as new insights and fresh data.
