Final Event of NephroCAGE project in Montreal

(05.08.2023) On August 1st and 2nd, 2023, we concluded the NephroCAGE project in Montreal, Canada hosted by our project partners at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC) and Le Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM).

On the first day, hosted by CHUM we discussed the project partners’ efforts of the last project year and used the rare occasion to discuss the remaining challenges in person. The cii research group presented their efforts toward developing a decentralized federated learning infrastructure in this transatlantic consortium. After a joint conference dinner, we held the 3rd international NephroCAGE symposium at MUHC the following day. At this symposium, project partners as well as associated partners, and the German and Canadian funding agencies presented the insights gained in this project.

We thank MUHC and CHUM and especially Ruth Sapir-Pichhadze as well as Héloïse Cardinal for generously hosting the symposium, the funding agencies for supporting this innovative and visionary project, and all collaborators for the outstanding work we achieved in this project.
