Fundamentals of Widefield and Confocal Microscopy and Imaging Course

Light microscopy is the most widely used form of microscopy for life science research.

Light microscopy is the most widely used form of microscopy for life science research. The correct handling of the microscope and optimising image quality (e.g. contrast, resolution) as well as experimental design according to different applications are crucial to obtain the best results.

This course will provide the participants with an overview about the basics of microscopy (light and optics, contrast techniques and imaging). The confocal part will include multicolor, 3D- and time lapse imaging as well as spectral imaging, photobleaching (FRAP, FLIP, FLAP) and photoactivation techniques. Basic image analysis tools including measurement functions, colocalisation and spectral unmixing as well as 3D/4D image processing will be covered, both in theory and practice. The course will combine lectures with intense daily hands-on practices followed by discussions.

EC services responsible for transport research - DG RTD, DG MOVE and DG CNECT - in collaboration with INEA, are organising an information day to present the new Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020 in the area of transport research and innovation. The event will take place in the morning of 13 December 2017 in Brussels. It will address potential applicants to the 2018 calls for project proposals under the Horizon 2020 challenge 'Smart, green and integrated transport' . Presentations will cover the whole Work Programme 2018-2020, application procedures and will provide detailed information on the calls 2018. The event will be streamed in real time and a webstreaming link will be available 48 hours before the event via a dedicated link (to be activated at a later stage). Registration is compulsory and free of charge. Due to the limited number of seats available, only one representative per organisation will be accepted. To secure your seat, register ASAP! The Info Day will be followed by the ETNA2020 Networking and Brokerage event to take place in the afternoon at the same venue. For this latter, please register separately at: https://www.b2match.eu/h2020transportcall2018/Stay tuned and follow #H2020TransportInfo for more info, networking and partner search!
