Main international speakers

moserEdvard I Moser, Nobel Laureate in Medicine or Physiology 2014
Founding Director of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience and Co-Director of Centre for Neural Computation. Edvard Moser is interested in how spatial location and spatial memory are computed in the brain. His work, conducted with May-Britt Moser as a long-term collaborator, includes the discovery of grid cells in the entorhinal cortex, which provides the first clues to a neural mechanism for the metric of spatial mapping. Subsequent to this discovery the Mosers have identified additional space-representing cell types in the entorhinal cortex and they are beginning to unravel how the neural microcircuit is organized and how grid patterns are generated. Edvard Moser shares the Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology 2014 with May-Britt Moser and John O’Keefe.

kelemuSegenet Kelemu, 2014 L’Oréal-UNESCO Women in Science Laureate
Dr Segenet Kelemu is the fourth Director General of the International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) in Nairobi, Kenya. She is a molecular plant pathologist with emphasis on elucidation of molecular determinants of host-pathogen interactions, development of novel plant disease control strategies including genetic engineering, biopesticides, pathogen population genetics and dynamics and endophytic microbes and their role in plant development. Segenet was featured in the top 100 most influential African women of 2014 in Forbes Africa and has been celebrated with numerous awards.

 

chanSteve Chan, director IBM Network Science Research Centre 
Professor Steve Chan is a Big Data Scientist, investigating key issues of interoperability, resiliency, and those methodologies and tools that will facilitate transforming Big Data into Big Insights. To advance these explorations, he has co-founded several research centres within academia, such as at Swansea University (e.g. Network Science Research Center or NSRC), within the MIT Engineering Systems Division (ESD) (e.g. Geospatial Data Center), at the MIT Department of Comparative Media Studies (e.g. Laboratory for the Public Engagement with Science or E-Lab), as well as for industry, such as at IBM (e.g. NSRC), and Public Private Partnership (P3I) consortiums (e.g. San Diego Tech Hub and Cyber Range).

deblokJos de Blok, Buurtzorg founder and 2014 RSA Albert Medal Laureate
Named the most influential health care director in Holland in 2011, Jos de Blok has transformed home-based health care in Holland by focusing on what nurses should do, not how nurses should do it. Jos has a long history in community nursing, both delivering care and in management positions. From 2000 to 2003 he played an active role in the National Association of District Nurses (LVW), spearheading a movement by community health nurses to take responsibility for their own professional development and to create a clearer vision for the role of nurses in primary care. Established in 2007 with one team of four nurses, Buurtzorg currently supports more than 4,700 nurses in 440 teams serving more than 60,000 patients a year. In 2011 Buurtzorg was named the best employer in Holland.
