ClickGene Mid-Term Meeting

The ClickGene Mid-Term Meeting will be held from the 29th November to the 1st December in Bologna Italy. The event will consist of three thoroughly planned days:

  • On the first day the programme network meeting will be held
  • On the second day the technical review meeting will take place
  • On the final day the ESRs will be treated to a quality management workshop presented by baseclick GmbH

The Programme Network Meeting will consist of an update of the project as a whole. The coordinator will give a short presentation on the status followed by the individual WP leaders. The next hours will be reserved for the ESRs. They will present their work progress to the consortium.

The ESRs will once again be busy during the Technical Review Meeting. The will each give a short presentation telling the consortium their background, their work and training experience in the network. They will also receive a short feedback on their presentations.

The location for the event will be the ISOF Institute and the EC Project officer and a technical expert will be present for the whole meeting.

This meeting follows the 2nd Annual Network Meeting that was held in Grenoble from the 25th to 27th of March.

Mid-Term Meeting this winter

Planning for the ClickGene Mid-Term Meeting is underway and progress is looking good. We will be hoping to avoid the freezing weather by holding it in Bologna, Italy from the 29th November to the 1st December. The participants are expected to arrive on the 28th November and the first day of work will start the next morning. On the first day the Programme Network Meeting will be held. This includes an update of the project status by the coordinator and updates on the individual Work Packages by their respective leaders. Following that Jeanette Müller will advise the attendees on the requirements, expectations and best practices. Before lunch the first ESRs (Early Stage Researchers) will give an update on their work progress – the other ESRs will do the same after lunch and in the afternoon. Later in the day there will be a Management Board meeting.

On the second day the Technical Review Meeting will take place. The morning and early afternoon will mainly be filled with individual reports by the ESRs and the coordinator. Later in the afternoon the fellows will be holding individual meetings with the REA and a reviewer to discuss their experience within the network.

The final day is reserved for a workshop held by baseclick GmbH. There will be more information available in the Training Programme in due time.

Gianluca Toniolo wins European Young Chemists Network prize

Gianluca Toniolo has been awarded a prize from the European Young Chemists Network (EYCN) for the best overall presentation at the COST Action CM1201 meeting  in Grenoble, France recently.

Gianluca is an Early Stage Researcher funded by the European Training Network ClickGene and a PhD student under the supervision of Dr Chatgilialoglu at the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology “Demokritos”, Athens. His thesis focuses on Receptor activating polymer coated transfection agents.

The ClickGene team congratulates Gianluce on his initial research findings and the ways in which he presented these to the large audience of scientists and industry representatives.

The European Young Chemists’ Network (EYCN) is the young division of EuCheMS (European Chemical Sciences). It has been active since 2006 and its goal is to promote Chemistry in Europe, as well as to give new educational and networking opportunities to students and professionals. The EYCN was able to arrange a collaboration with the COST Action within the H2020 and could attend the meeting in Grenoble (France).

ClickGene & COST CM1201 Meeting - Carton House Ireland

The 1st Network Meeting of ClickGene was held in conjunction with an inter-working group meeting of the COST Action CM1201: Biomimetic Radical Chemistry. The COST meeting was held at Carton House Resort, Kildare, Ireland between 23rd - 25th July (2015) and provided an excellent oppertunity for ClickGene PI's and ESRs to interact and present their work to a larger EU scientific community. The COST meeting featured a range of ClickGene speakers (Dr. Carla Fererri of CNR, Bolonga is pictured) along with internationally renowned experts in the field of radical chemistry. The joint meeting proved to be very successful with a range of open exchanges between advanced and young researchers alike. A further meeting between COST CM1201 and ClickGene is planned for April 2016 and will be held in Grenoble, France. 

1st Network Meeting - DCU Ireland


The 1st Nework Meeting of ClickGene took place on July 21st (2015) at Dublin City University, Ireland and was hosted by Dr. Andrew Kellett and Dr. Niall Barron.
