“Symposium Celebrating Ole Petersen’s 75th Birthday”
Date: 6th and 7th March 2018
Venue: The Hadyn Ellis Building, Maindy Road, Cardiff University
The symposium will provide a broad view of the state-of-the-art of Physiology and Pathophysiology in 2018. World leaders in the field, with no less than 13 Members of Academia Europaea including 4 Fellows of the Royal Society and 3 Members of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, will present recent discoveries within wide perspectives. Reflecting the broad interests of Ole Petersen there will be a major focus on intra- and inter-cellular signalling events in a number of different systems, including the gastro-intestinal tract and the brain.
The AE Cardiff Hub has overseen the compilation of the Evidence Review Report Food from the Oceans, which examines the question of how the ocean can help satisfy the global demand for food.

On 12th October, a largescale international conference in Tallinn, Estonia, focused on the impact and value of European research. The event was organised as part of the Estonian Presidency of the European Council, with Professor Sierd Cloetingh (AE President) and Louise Edwards (AE Cardiff Hub Manager) acting in advisory and editorial roles as members of the Steering Group.
On Friday 13th October, a major symposium examined how global policy challenges are being addressed through evidence-based scientific advice. The event was organised by the SAPEA (Science for Policy by European Academies) consortium, with Academia Europaea Cardiff responsible for shaping the programme.
Hosted at the Estonian Academy of Sciences in Tallinn, it was designed as a complementary event to the international conference, European Research Excellence: Impact and Value for Society, held the previous day. Both took place as part of the programme of the Estonian Presidency of the European Council. Over 30 countries were represented.
