BIGCHEM Autumn School 2017, organised by the University of Modena, will take place on 25-27 October in Modena, Italy.
big data in chemistry + informatics = chemoinformatics
The increasing volume of biomedical data in chemistry and life sciences requires development of new methods and approaches for their analysis. This growth contributes to the increasing size of the market for big data, which currently develops six times faster than the overall IT sector, that itself is the driving force for our Information Age era. However, the specialized educational programmes in this area are currently limited and fragmented thus restraining its development.
The BIGCHEM project is a Horizon 2020 MSC ITN EID project, started 01-01-2016, providing innovative education in large chemical data analysis. The innovative research program will be implemented with the target users, large pharma companies and SMEs, which generate and analyze large chemical data as well as will promote technology transfer from academy to industrial applications.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 676434.
