2nd DRIVEN workshop in Luxembourg

October 15, 2019

The second DRIVEN training workshop was organised by the University of Luxembourg (UL) on the 11-12 of September 2019. After the success of the previous edition early this year, UL decided to keep a two-day format for their workshop while inviting even more participants and international speakers.

This second edition focused on Digital Twins which is a new and promising topic in data-driven simulation and especially for the biomedical sector. The University of Luxembourg invited all the national research actors involved, or with interest, in this topic as well as the key research funding actors in Luxembourg:

  • Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER)
  • Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH)
  • Luxembourg Institute of Research in Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine and Science (LIROMS)
  • Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB)
  • Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg (CHL)
  • Luxinnovation
  • Fond National de la Recherche (FNR)

In total, this 2nd DRIVEN workshop surpassed all our expectations by attracting not less than 57 participants from Luxembourg, Europe and worldwide. Thanks to their lengthy network of contacts, several European and international experts replied positively to the UL’s invitation to this training workshop on Digital Twins, such as:

  • University of Utah (USA)
  • INSERM & Mines Paris-Tech (France)
  • FORTH & National Technical University of Athens (Greece)
  • ETH Zurick (Switzerland)
  • and much more

During the first year of DRIVEN project we already reached our target of participants to the workshops for the entire project. Nevertheless, we will not reduce our efforts during the next two years as the organisation of the DRIVEN workshops capture the interest of many actors of the sector and it considerably increases the visibility of DRIVEN partners at a European and international level.

In Year 2, two new DRIVEN workshops will be organised. One will be organised by the University of Luxembourg while the other one will be organised by the University of Limerick in Ireland
