Successful and productive general progress meeting 

The second CHIC general progress meeting was held in Luton (UK) on the 20th-21st of February 2012. This was a great opportunity for all partners to hear more about the recent technical achievements and to discuss the future developments and progress of the project. Apart from general discussions, specific technical meetings were held to evaluate and further plan the progress in all the different research challenges of CHIC. 
The meeting was very successful with high and active participation of all partners. Special thanks go to the University of Bedfordshire for hosting us and for the organisational effort that went into the meeting!

  • Cancer modelling meeting: CHIC partners met in Oxford in April 2014 to discuss how exactly to develop concrete hypermodels of cancer. Among other important things, the fruitful discussions and participation of many of the partners produced a gross grain topology of the first multi-group cancer hypermodel demonstrator to be jointly developed. The topology will also serve as the driver of a good part of the technological infrastructure development.
