The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated biomedical research, revolutionized drug and vaccine development, and transformed medical and public health practices. How will this shape the future of medicine? In the bold vision of Goldman et al., this future is personalized care driven by big data and AI, systems medicine approaches, and next-generation technologies. Their lead article highlights key innovations for improved patient care and public health—as well as frameworks for new interdisciplinary collaborations and policy measures to make this vision a reality for all. Read the article in Frontiers in Science: https://www.frontiersin.org/journals/science/articles/10.3389/fsci.2024.1236919/full Citation: Cauchemez S, Cossu G, Delzenne N, Elinav E, Fassin D, Fischer A, Hartung T, Kalra D, Netea M, Neyts J, Rappuoli R, Pizza M, Saville M, Tenaerts P, Wright G, Sansonetti P and Goldman M.

Update on Hypermobile type of Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS).
17 May 2024
ERN ReCONNET
Short description Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) and hypermobility spectrum disorders (HSD) are exclusion diagnoses. Both are aspecific phenotypes sharing joint hypermobility and minor soft tissue anomalies with monogenic connective tissue disorders. Therefore, molecular testing may be useful to confirm the diagnosis by excluding partially overlapping disorders within and outside the current nosology of Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and related disorders. The first presentation is focused on offering an overview of the clinical boundaries of hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and hypermobility spectrum disorders, and to describe the current molecular genetic diagnostics applied in the field of clinically relevant joint hypermobility. The second presentation reports about the new acquisitions on morphological and functional aspects of peripheral microcirculation and skin layers in hypermobile EDS, as peripheral microcirculation was assessed for the first time in the literature and skin layers were previously poorly studied. Microvascular fragility is present also in hypermobile EDS as well as dermal thickness is thinner. Speakers Dr. Marco Castori is the Head of the Division of Medical Genetics, the Coordinator of the Rare Disease Program at the Hospital Fondazione IRCCS-Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, San Giovanni Rotondo - Foggia (Italy). In addition, Dr. Castori is a Member of ERN ReCONNET Working Group on Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes and ERN-SKIN as well. Prof. Alberto Sulli is an Associate Professor of Rheumatology at IRCCS Ospedale Policlinico San Martino - Genova (Italy). Prof. Sulli is a Member of the ERN ReCONNET and in particular, he is a Disease Coordinator of the working group on Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes in ERN ReCONNET.

EGU WEBINARS: Uneven ground: fieldwork accessibility for women
14 May 2024
European Geosciences...
What are the challenges women face when working in the field? What needs to be done to overcome these challenges and make fieldwork safer, more accessible, and more inclusive? Women encounter a host of challenges when engaging with fieldwork, many of which adversely impact how they navigate science or continue to pursue their career. This webinar featured three speakers who discussed the challenges and the actions needed to improve fieldwork for women: Anouk Beniest, who provided the perspective of a fieldwork educator, Florina Schalamon, who discussed how to challenge traditional narratives of what it means to be a polar explorer, and Nicolas Coltice, a representative of the “Did This Really Happen?” group, a project which highlights daily sexism in academia. This webinar was moderated by Simon Clark and Öykü Koç. The audience will hear of the challenges women face when engaging in fieldwork. The negative experiences of women were shared, including perspectives from the results of study to personal experience. The speakers also discussed how to approach overcoming these challenges, from communication strategies and challenging harmful perspectives of fieldwork, to identifying and inspiring needed change. Finally, the speakers shared examples of positive change that have worked in improving fieldwork for women. This is the first webinar in a multi-part of series which examines fieldwork practices and accessibility. The webinar lasted for one hour and concluded with an audience Q&A. Speakers: Anouk Beniest – Anouk is Assistant Professor in Tectonics at Department of Geology and Geochemistry at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands, and former Early Career Scientist Union Representative for the European Geosciences Union. Florina Schalamon – PhD candidate in Centennial Climate Drivers of Glacier Changes in Greenland at Karls-Frazens Universitat, Austria. Nicolas Coltice - Nicolas holds a professorship at Université Côte d’Azur in France. Previously, he served as a professor at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris and the University of Lyon. His research focuses on the history and dynamics of Earth's interior and planetary bodies. He is a recipient of an ERC Advanced Grant, and it was throughout a previous ERC grant that he founded the initiative didthisreallyhappen.net with Alice Adenis, Maëlis Arnould, Marie Bocher, Mélanie Gérault, Claire Mallard and Martina Ulvrova, dedicated to fighting everyday sexism within the geosciences. Öykü Koç - Öykü is a PhD student at Politecnico di Milano (Italy) whose research focuses on the time-variable gravity field recovery to model mass changes driven by geophysical processes. More specifically, Öykü has been working on ways to mitigate temporal aliasing to capture more of the geophysical signal under the context of future gravity missions. Öykü is also the EGU Early Career Scientist representative for the Geodesy division.

#EGU23 US1 - Managing compounding impacts from extreme events through societal crises
13 May 2024
European Geosciences...
Society has been facing many compounding impacts from extreme events related to natural and geo-hazards (storms, floods, droughts, volcanic eruptions, landslides, forest fires, etc.) that occur simultaneously or in succession. Ongoing societal, environmental, and political crises (such as the COVID19 pandemic and armed conflicts) provide additional challenges, reducing our capacity to deal with these compounding hazards and potentially impacting our ability to manage them in the future with resources, policies, and attention being redirected. With climate change likely to exacerbate the compounding impacts of these extreme events, this symposium asks whether we have the capacity to predict them in advance and reduce ecological, social, and economic damages. Knowing how science is used during extreme events, societal crises and subsequent policy discussions is key to understanding the role that researchers and the scientific community can play in providing evidence and support during pivotal moments. This symposium will address how Europe can more effectively address multihazards and compounding impacts from extreme events through ongoing societal crises. It will outline the policy pathways and key legislation, such as the Sustainable Development Goals and European Green Deal, that are needed to frame common goals and how our current geopolitical crises will impact them. It will use specific examples, such as recent European droughts, current energy shortage, and potential food insecurity, to discuss how scientific evidence has been used to steer decisions and how these challenges could be used to boost technical developments and future initiatives. The panel will also discuss the need to create pre-emptive strategies and frameworks that minimize the impact of compounding natural disasters, unexpected societal crises, and resource shortages. We are very excited to welcome four excellent speakers to this Union symposium: - Dr Philip Ward: Professor of Global Water Risk Dynamics, Institute for Environmental Studies, Free University Amsterdam, Netherlands - Dr Tina Comes: Professor in Decision Theory & ICT for Resilience, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands - Dr Elena Rovenskaya: Program Director, Advancing Systems Analysis Program, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Laxenburg, Austria - Dr Artur Malantowicz: Leader of the Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network Coordination Team, Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO), European Commission The session was moderated by: Bikem Ekberzade, photojournalist, author and radio producer, and PhD student on the responses of different ecosystems (terrestrial and aquatic) to external pressures and disturbances. Convener: Micha Werner Co-conveners: Viktor J. Bruckman, Emmanuel Salmon EDITORS NOTE: All opinions, statements and questions are the speakers own and do not necessarily reflect the European Geosciences Union, but have been shared here in the name of supporting open, transparent and unedited discussion on this topic.

A liter of seawater contains billions of microorganisms. Yet despite their crucial role in marine health and biogeochemical cycling—plus potential applications in biotechnology—the vast majority remain unknown to science. Laiolo et al. report a significant breakthrough: the identification of 317.5 million ocean gene clusters, with over half matched to microbial class, gene function, location, and habitat type. Their lead article, published in Frontiers in Science, discusses taxonomic and metabolic findings and explores next steps to building a full, open-source global ocean genome–including the need for adequate intellectual property frameworks.

#EGU23 GDB6 - Open access publishing: national strategies, challenges and solutions
7 May 2024
European Geosciences...
The global scientific community agrees that science, knowledge and publications should be open and accessible to everyone. Within the international science landscape, however, different strategies are applied to reach this goal within the near future. Various global or national initiatives are pursued to introduce transformative agreements between publishers and research institutions or libraries to accelerate the transformation from subscription-based to open access publishing. An increasing number of funders/research institutions set up institutional agreement with publishers to cover publication costs for their researchers. The pace and nature of establishing such agreements greatly varies between research institutions in various countries which leads to disadvantages for researchers across the world. More than 20 years ago, EGU pioneered its publication model of open access publishing with open peer review for transparency and high quality in publishing. In this tradition of these values, this plenary discussion aimed to bring together representatives of European research institutions and funding agencies. The discussion focused on how and why different approaches towards fully open access publishing are pursued and on possible steps to achieve jointly and efficiently the common goal of open access publishing and open science on European and wider levels. Access to science, knowledge and publications should be open to everyone! This Great Debate brought together four experts in various aspects of Open Access Publishing to discuss current challenges and potential solutions: - Françoise Rousseau-Hans, Coordinator of the French Unified Consortium of Higher Education and Research Organizations for Access to Digital Publications (COUPERIN) - Nicola Spaldin, Chair of the Working Group of Open Science, European Research Council - Colleen Campbell, Strategic Advisor for Max Planck Digital Library, Coordinator of the Open Access 2020 Initiative (OA2020) - Johan Rooryck, Executive Director cOAlition S, the international initiative to make full and immediate Open Access to research publications The Great Debate covered specific topics, including: - the advantages and disadvantages of agreements between publishers and institutions - reasons why fully open access publishers, like Copernicus, are not prioritized in negotiations of such agreements - recommendations for improving national guidelines on open access publishing, - the costs that are associated with the publication of scientific papers. The insights gained from the Great Debate will help scientists to make informed decisions on the choice of journals for publishing their work. In addition, it will contribute to recommendations for improving guidelines on open access publishing at national and international levels.

Waterborne transport for a green future
7 May 2024
CORDIS: Innovate wit...
Waterborne transport is an economic powerhouse – responsible for 77 % of Europe’s external trade and 35 % of the trade happening between EU Member States. It’s also a remarkably efficient mode for getting around, especially compared to road transport. It is estimated that every tonne of freight transferred from road to water results in a four to fivefold reduction in emissions. Yet the sector is responsible for 13.5 % of all transport-related greenhouse gas emissions in Europe. Although this is less than what’s produced by the road transport and aviation sectors (71 % and 14.4 % respectively), it is a substantial carbon footprint, which could increase as demand for shipping grows. Waterborne transport also emits other types of air pollution, including sulfur dioxide and particulates. If Europe is to achieve its Green Deal objective of becoming the world’s first carbon-neutral continent, it must reduce waterborne transport’s environmental impact. But it must do so in a way that facilitates the growth of a modern and globally competitive shipping sector. That’s a difficult balance to strike, but one that the 13 EU-funded research, innovation, implementation and infrastructure projects highlighted in a new Synergy Info Pack on Waterborne Transport are working to achieve.

#EGU23 GDB5 - Is social media outreach?
3 May 2024
European Geosciences...
Is social media a worthwhile vector for communicating science and reaching non-expert audiences? Proponents of social media highlight its ability for bringing otherwise inaccessible research to a global network, spreading research to new audiences whilst cultivating a following. The public can be updated with discoveries in real-time, without the potentially modifying lens of traditional media. And with content under the control of individuals or small groups communicators can flex and nurture their creativity. But communicating through social media often requires sacrificing nuance and accuracy for the extremely short time-frames of attention and engagement. Critics also state that it requires a considerable time-investment and money, which may otherwise distract from core research activities. Amongst this is also the fear that social media exposes communicators to the possibility of derision and hateful conduct. In this Great Debate, our panellists asked if effective communication on social media is possible or whether scientists are better investing their efforts elsewhere. The following panellists are featured in this Great Debate: -Dr Bethan Davies, Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography, Newcastle University. - Dr Solmaz Mohadjer, Interdisciplinary Geoscientist, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. -Prof Stuart Lane, Professor in Geomorphology, University of Lausanne.

Full title: Scientific Neocolonialism: tools and mechanisms to advocate and amplify the voices, knowledge and recognition of local knowledge in geoscience research Following on from the success of the EGU22 Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee Union Symposium 'Scientific Neocolonialism: What is it and why should you care?', EGU would like to expand the conversation surrounding this important topic. In particular, this Great Debate aimed to hear from people that have experienced neocolonialism in science, to acknowledge the issues, explore solutions that our scientific community and the EGU can implement to raise awareness, and discuss examples to eliminate neocolonialism from our geoscience ecosystem. In particular, the Debate continued conversations on the following questions: - Why is it vital that local communities participate in geoscientific research? - Which barriers are preventing inclusion of local communities within the geoscience research ecosystem (this will include personal testimonials from geoscientists from under-represented countries)? - What are the tools and mechanisms to advocate and amplify the voices and recognition of local knowledge in geoscience research? - How can research funding help geoscientists construct meaningful and fair scientific exchange with local communities where international science is conducted? - How can institutions help geoscientists to conduct science including local communities? This Great Debate features the following contributors: - Dr Helen Glaves, EGU President, British Geological Survey data scientist. - Dr Rebecca Haacker, Director National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Education & Outreach, Program Director for Integrated Activities, Geosciences Directorate, National Science Foundation. - Ms Wendy Khumalo, Palaeoclimatology PhD candidate, The National Laboratory of Age Determination, Norwegian University of Science and Technology. - Dr Tim Rawling, Chief Executive Officer, AuScope Limited, committee member Geoscience Indigenous Collaboration and Engagement Specialist Group. - Dr Anouk Beniest, Department of Geology and Geochemistry, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam Convener: Robyn Pickering Co-conveners: Anouk Beniest, Barbara Ervens, Giuliana Panieri, Loyuá Costa EDITORS NOTE: All opinions, statements and questions are the speakers own and do not necessarily reflect the European Geosciences Union, but have been shared here in the name of supporting open, transparent and unedited discussion on this topic.

1 May 2024
European Molecular B...
The gut microbiota is the microbial community that occupies the gastrointestinal tract, which is responsible for producing enzymes and molecules essential for host metabolism and for response and adaptation to the environment. Increasing evidence demonstrates the importance of a balanced gut microbiota for mammalian health, for example in regulating the immune and endocrine systems, or in digesting food and producing vitamins. However, little is known about the impact of the microbial community in the gut on host reproduction, and if the consequences of an altered paternal microbiota influence the next generation. The Hackett group at EMBL Rome showed that disrupting the gut microbiota in male mice increases the probability that their offspring are born with low weight, have severe growth restriction, and die prematurely. Their unprecedented findings might help to prevent some birth complications in humans.

Are recent US developments in biotechnology and national security impacting UK companies? This webinar explores the implications of the BIOSECURE Act and President Biden's Executive Order on data privacy, including genomic data, biometric data, personal health data, geolocation data and financial data. If the BIOSECURE bill, introduced by a bipartisan group of Select Committee Members in the US Senate and the House goes through, it could severely impact US companies’ ability and desire to contract with biotechnology entities from China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea. Moreover, the bill also specifically names certain companies related to the People’s Republic of China —BGI, MGI, Complete Genomics, WuXi AppTec, and their affiliates—as companies of concern. How are UK life science companies responding to these developments and what does it mean for our ecosystem? Join us on this webinar to learn more about how the environment may change with these developments, and what they mean for UK companies looking to expand and develop overseas.

Our oceans are facing a crisis. With the help of #algae there are many ways to tackle these problems and restore our waters. The LOCALITY project develops circular and sustainable value chains from algae, linking industrial players to stimulate co-creation and bring new and innovative algae-based products to regional and global markets while protecting and restoring Europe’s aquatic ecosystems. LOCALITY sets the basis for the market uptake of innovative, socially responsible, and sustainable food, aquafeed ingredients, agriculture, and textile products. For these products algae biomasses and ingredients from side streams and the Baltic and North Seas are used. The project further demonstrate their social and economic benefits, define commercialisation strategies and ensure consumer and market acceptance. Project results, developed technologies, and products to relevant stakeholders, thus fostering the replication of such circular ecosystems are disseminated.
