Event details

FortisNet is a collegiate network of key opinion leaders from universities, hospitals, industry, defence organisations, health networks and stakeholders, with a passion to make a difference in the management of musculoskeletal health.

As in January 2017, this event will provide the opportunity to connect and collaborate with clinical, academic, industrial and stakeholder partners. Our hope is that you will all want to participate actively in the discussions. The programme is structured to achieve a number of objectives: to present the collective achievements of FortisNet, our capabilities and drivers; set challenges for collaborative research; seed new collaborations with pump-priming funds; and to have time to network.

Fostering Collaboration: The Institute for Life Sciences is pleased to offer some short term pump-priming funds to stimulate new collaborative projects - details will follow.

Posters: Attendees are invited to bring posters to stimulate conversations. You are welcome to bring a poster that has been displayed elsewhere.

Registration: It is essential that you register for this event, to enable us to plan the day and numbers for catering.

Intended audience: Due to a limited number of places, attendance is by invitation only. In line with the FortisNet vision, the event will be suitable for researchers, clinicians, companies and the people and organisations who use the outputs of research.

Organising team: Professor Jo Adams, FortisNet Director; Dr Alexandra Mant, Professor Peter J S Smith, IfLS Director; Janette Thompson.
