11. hrvatski dvogodišnji ehokardiografski kongres s međunarodnim sudjelovanjem

CroEcho2021, tradicionalni dvogodišnji nacionalni ehokardiografski kongres, ove godine pruža potpuno novo iskustvo. Nove, ograničavajuće okolnosti, nastale zbog pandemije COVID-a 19, uvjetovale su organizaciju kongresa prvi put na daljinu.

Primjenom digitalne tehnologije i mrežne kongresne platforme CroEcho2021 svim sudionicima pruža i neke nove pogodnosti, kao što su slobodno i nesmetano sudjelovanje u raspravama, postavljanje pitanja i komentare kroz neposrednu i slobodniju komunikaciju s predavačima, pretkongresno pregledavanje kongresnih priopćenja i izložbe, te međusobnu komunikaciju sudionika tijekom kongresa.

Program je prilagođen novim okolnostima, smanjena opsega, osmišljen bez usporednih sadržaja, obuhvaćajući samo odabrane teme ehokardiografskog tečaja, a popularne ehokardiografske radionice organizirane su na daljinu. U središtu kongresa su probrane kardiološke teme plenarnih predavanja u kojima ehokardiografija ima središnju ulogu i klinički scenariji, pri čemu su potrebni svrsishodan izbor i klinička interpretacija više slikovnih metoda u planiranju liječenja i intervencija.

Kongres organizira Radna skupina za ehokardiografiju i slikovne metode u kardiologiji Hrvatskoga kardiološkog društva, uz potporu Europskoga udruženja za kardiovaskularno oslikavanje (EACVI). Veselimo se ponovnom susretu, ove godine na sučelju vašeg računala.

11th Croatian Biennal Echocardiography Congress with International Participation

CroEcho2021, our traditional biannual echocardiographic conference, will provide a completely different experience this year. New limiting circumstanced due to the COVID-19 pandemic have compelled us to hold the conference remotely for the first time.

However, the application of digital technology and the CroEcho2021 conference network platform also provides some new advantages to our participants, including free and unfettered participation in discussions, addressing questions and comments to lecturers through direct and freer communication, pre-conference viewing of conference speeches and exhibits, and free communication between participants during the conference.

The conference program has been adjusted to the new circumstances and is reduced in scope, with no events taking place in parallel and addressing only selected topics from the echocardiography course, and chocardiography workshops being staged remotely. The conference focuses on carefully selected cardiologic topics addressed in plenary lectures in which echocardiography plays a central role, along with clinical scenarios that require goal-oriented choices and clinical interpretation based on multiple imaging methods in planning interventions and treatment.

The conference is organized by the Working Group on Echocardiography and Cardiac Imaging Modalities of the Croatian Cardiac Society, with the support of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI). We look forward to meeting each other once again, albeit this time via a computer interface.

Bristol Quantum Information Technologies Workshop

BQIT is a three day annual workshop aimed at enabling leading UK and international academics and industrial partners to come together; to explore and discuss future ambitions and challenges in the field of Quantum Information Technologies. Since our conception in 2014 we have had 230 speakers and panellists who have presented their work and opinions on a range of topics, from quantum theory to innovation in industry.

Welcome Message

The BQIT:21 team welcomes you to the eighth Bristol Quantum Information Technologies workshop!

Last year was the first time in our workshop's history that we had gone fully virtual. The global circumstances that continue to impact us all professionally and personally have forced BQIT once again to be delivered as an all-virtual workshop for 2021. The access this creates to colleagues across the world who would otherwise be unable to join us, as well as being able to make the workshop free for all attendees due to the lower costs involved in delivering an online workshop, are just a couple of the extraordinary benefits of meeting online. This also means that we can welcome three times as many attendees to BQIT than previous years.

We take this opportunity to thank each of our speakers and poster presenters for contributing their technical content, this year's sponsors, whose support this year enabled BQIT:21 to be free to all attendees, and to all of our attendees for joining us online this year. We recognise the extra energy required to stay connected and motivated during these difficult times, and are hugely encouraged to see so many of you willing to continue to connect with us on an online platform.

It is our hope that you have a productive and enjoyable time while you engage and interact with BQIT:21, and to everyone that has helped take BQIT:21 online, thank you!

Textiles 2030

Thank you for attending Textiles 2030.

A recording of the event is available now via the Schedule. Please visit our website to find out more about Textiles 2030.

Textiles 2030

Join us on 26th April to celebrate the launch of Textiles 2030, an ambitious new initiative on a mission to transform the fashion and textiles sector into a climate-neutral and profitable industry that is fit for the future.

Textiles 2030 is bringing the whole fashion and textiles industry together with governments, research institutes, innovators and disruptors with a bold commitment to make fashion more sustainable and tackle climate change.

Our climate is in crisis and WRAP’s research shows that the UK textiles’ sector needs to act quickly, going further and faster than ever before if we are to maintain our greenhouse gas emissions within a 1.5-degree warming trajectory.

Fashion businesses are under ever increasing scrutiny: from customers who demand products produced sustainably; government who are changing legislation on design and sale of textiles; and investors who now require reporting on climate progress.

It is clear the sector needs to break the pattern of take, make, and dispose and move towards a circular system where products are re-used and recycled more easily. WRAP has over 15 years experience delivering cross-sector voluntary agreements which create real change. Textiles 2030 is building on the success of SCAP 2020 which saw businesses achieving major reduction in their carbon and water footprints across its eight year programme.

With over 35 organisations already signed up, WRAP is delighted to officially launch Textiles 2030 on April 26th. Please join us to celebrate the beginning of this exciting new era for fashion and to find out more about getting signed up.

We will be led by an expert panel including WRAP CEO Marcus Gover, Baroness Lola Young, Environment Minister Rebecca Pow, and Richard Swannell, Head of WRAP Global. This virtual event will break into smaller sessions where you can network with our pioneering members and delve into the practicalities of being part of the initiative. Guest speakers include Hirestreet and Thrift+, Marks & Spencer, and Fashion Revolution.
