Report of INFECT 1st annual meeting
At the end of the first reporting period of INFECT, all partners and representatives of INFECT advisory board as well as the EC Scientific Officer, met for a 3 days Annual meeting in Ericeira, Portugal. In total 32 participants met to discuss the INFECT project and to decide upon future actions. It was a highly interactive and successful meeting, which highlighted the importance of these fulminant infections, and the impact we foresee that systems medicine will have in this field and in benefiting patient care. Next meeting was scheduled for January 2014, when team leaders for WP3-6 will meet in Braunschweig to review the progress of INFECT data management analysis during the first 12 months.
