1) providing a forum for life science research consortia to promote their ideas for pan-European large-scale research programmes to funding organisations,
2) creating the conditions for networking and decision-making that could ultimately lead to trans-national funding of such programmes from multiple sources, and
3) bringing together funding organisations to discuss synergies and address future life science challenges in a coordinated manner.
