4 © 2011 VPH Institute Statutory process /1 September 2007 - The origins: the STEP VPH Research roadmap The idea of creating a permanent, no-profit organisation for the VPH initiative was included in the STEP research roadmap. December 2009 - VPH NoE vision and Strategy 2009 This idea was re-proposed and expanded in the STEP roadmap 2009 update entitled “A Vision and Strategy for the VPH in 2010 and beyond” elaborated by the VPH NoE. January 2010 - Public petition Following the mandate of the VPH NoE, a public petition was organised on Biomed Town to verify the support of the VPH community to the creation of this institute. Nearly 300 experts from over 30 countries have signed this petition, clearly expressing their support to this idea. March 2010 - Pro Tempore Board is appointed Nine "probi viri" internationally recognised experts, representing many countries and research sub-domains, were invited to form a Pro Tempore Board, invested with a very limited mandate: to elaborate a draft statute for the Institute, to be submitted to the public discussion. August 2010 - Draft statute open to public revision The draft statute was submitted to public revision. The document was left open for comments for a month. 4

5 © 2011 VPH Institute Statutory process /2 September 2010 - VPH Consensus Meeting in Brussels The draft statute was presented and discussed, and requested changes were factored in version 6 of the draft statute. October 2010 - Call for founding supporting members A public call for founding supporting members for the VPH Institute was sent via the VPH News email channel to over 10,000 unique recipients. Preliminary expressions of interest were received from 18 institutions; of them 10 submitted the formal commitment letter before the deadline, and were invited as Founding Supporting Members. November 2010 – Support actions give mandate to the Institute Replying to a request for clarification, the coordinators of the actions VPH NoE, VPH-FET, and ARGOS, agreed to delegate to the VPH Institute, responsibility for elaborating a formal recommendation on “the continuation of VPH research”. December 2010 - VPH NoE vision and Strategy 2010 In the 2010 update, “A Vision and Strategy for the VPH”, the mission and vision of the VPH institute were defined. 5

6 © 2011 VPH Institute Statutory process /3 March 2011 - Constitution meeting Representatives of the ten founding supporting member institutions met in Leuven (BE) for the Constitution Meeting. May 2011 - Incorporation On May 16th, 2011 the incorporation process was completed; the VPH Institute was then a legal entity. July 2011 – Membership campaign All institutions involved with VPH projects were invited to join the VPH Institute as ordinary members September 2011 – First General Assembly 50 member institutions were invited to attend the first general assembly in Barcelona October 2011 – Presidential Election The first President of the VPH Institute will be elected by its members via electronic ballot 6

7 © 2011 VPH Institute Mission & vision The mission of the VPH Institute is to ensure that the Virtual Physiological Human is fully realised, universally adopted, and effectively used both in research and clinic. The vision of the VPH Institute for the first five years is to realise the VPH to the largest possible extent. To achieve this objective the VPH institute will work to: – Ensure that VPH-related research receives an adequate level of funding all over the world; – Ensure that this funded research contributes with a high degree of synergy to the realisation of the VPH. The vision of the VPH Institute for the following ten years is to make sure that the VPH framework is: – Universally adopted; – Deployed into research and clinical settings in order to produce the highest possible benefits. 7

8 © 2011 VPH Institute Governance rules Governance rules should evolve with the definition of what exactly the Institute is, what scope it has, etc. The Statute was designed as a lightweight document, to make such changes easier: – Statute includes only core principles and legal articles – Minimal structure imposed by the Belgian law – All major procedural rules are defined in Bylaws that can be changed with a simple majority of the General Assembly – Members are invited to make suggestions on how to improve the procedural rules to the Manager – “Decisions regarding the modification of the articles of association are taken only by a qualified majority of two thirds (2/3rd) of the members present or represented”. 8

9 © 2011 VPH Institute Efficiency Vs. democracy Balance efficiency and internal democracy – An alliance of institutions – Supporting members have executive powers – General members have oversight of the executive function of the supporting members – Institutions every year can switch from one role to the other to match their specific strategic interests 9

29 © 2011 VPH Institute VPH: Definition The Virtual Physiological Human is a framework of methods and technologies that once established will make possible the integrative investigation of human body 29

30 © 2011 VPH Institute What is VPH? Cover all organ systems, all scales. Large-scale research initiative. Started in 2005, > €200m funding, ≈ 200 European institutions, > 2000 researchers International ramifications in USA, Japan, Korea, Australia, China, etc. A network of Excellence, a congress, three special issues on TRS, two books a virtual institute 30

31 © 2011 VPH Institute VPH Institute: rationale “In this scenario there are all the conditions for the VPH to be confirmed a primary research topic for European and member state funding agencies in the next 5-10 years, which will ensure to our universities, institutes, and companies a sustained flow of funding opportunities and chances for further development” The competition between research domains in ensuring that part of this reducing budget is targeted to them is becoming fierce. Ultimately, only those communities that are internally organised, and are capable of projecting to the decision-makers and to the public at large a convincing story on the importance of that research topic will succeed in this competition. 31

32 © 2011 VPH Institute Goals The VPH community needs: – to speak with one voice; – to strengthen the international profile of VPH; – to convince the decision makers that the VPH is the topic to be funded in the forthcoming years; – to consolidate biomedical integrative research as a new foundational topic around which to develop educational curricula, establish scientific journals and international conferences, scientific societies and prizes; – To demonstrate and assess the early VPH technology in clinical settings. 32

33 © 2011 VPH Institute VPH Institute The mission of the VPH Institute … –is to ensure that the Virtual Physiological Human is fully realised, universally adopted, and effectively used both in research and clinic. The status is … –not-for-profit international organisation incorporated in Belgium on March 24 th, 2011, operated by a Board of Directors elected by its members among the those which every year take the status of Supporting Member institutions. 33

49 © 2011 VPH Institute Board of Trustees: Electoral procedure Nicholas Ayache INRIA member of the Board of Directors 49

50 © 2011 VPH Institute Election: Board of Trustees The Board of Trustees is formed by a President and two financial auditors. The role of the Board of Trustees is to supervise the operations of the Board of Directors, ensuring that such operations do not get into conflict with the interests of the membership at large and does not violate the common law, the legal provisions and the provisions in the Articles of Association. The representatives of all member institutions in good standing elect the Board of Trustees from a list of candidates nominated by the General Members (Note: the term used in the statute is “expressed”; the BoD agreed that the proper interpretation is that candidates can be any person that is nominated by a member organisation). 50

51 © 2011 VPH Institute Delayed elections The original plan was to elect the BoT during this assembly, but: – Many institutions were waiting for their governance to approve the membership Thus, the elections this year will follow this procedure: – Official call for candidatures was circulates on September 12th, 2011; ask copies to Martina. To be eligible you must be the representative appointed by one of the member institutions (i.e. which submitted the application form; only for this year even non-ratified institutions will have voting rights) – The call for candidates will close at 24:00 on September 30th, 2011. This is two days after the General Assembly, giving to uncertain colleagues the possibility to attend the General Assembly, understand better what this means, and then express their candidature in the following two days. – Representatives of member institutions in good standing will receive the email ballot on October 31st, 2011. So in order to exert the right to vote your institution must become a member before that date. – Email ballots will be accepted until November 30th, 2011. So if you are candidate you must ensure that your institution becomes a member before this date. 51

52 © 2011 VPH Institute Public call for candidates The members representatives are invited to express publicly their intention to nominate themselves for the position of President or for that of Financial Auditor Members can also nominate as candidates absent colleagues, so long as they have previously indicated their acceptance to be nominated The Board of Directors will actively seek candidates, and if no candidates are nominated by the General Membership, will seek candidates from the Supporting Membership 52

53 © 2011 VPH Institute By-laws article required Submit to the GA approval a single article: “The mandate of the President and of the Financial Auditors that form the Board of Trustees is two years. The mandate can be renewed for one additional term, for a total of four years” 53

55 © 2011 VPH Institute Horizon 2020: VPH Institute position Marco Viceconti University of Sheffield 55

56 © 2011 VPH Institute ARGOS We, the academic, industrial and clinical stakeholders of the VPH initiative recommend the European and United States governments: Work together on a common policy to harness outcomes of all VPH-type research efforts toward the creation of a global VPH Cyberinfrastructure, by ensuring that all repositories of data and models, as well as all the methods and technologies developed during these research projects funded by governmental agencies are mutually interoperable. Support the establishment and the operations of an International Multistakeholder Advisory Group responsible of elaborating a collective vision, as well as the minimum set of standards and the technical guidelines that ensure the interoperability and the integratibility of all VPH resources into the global VPH Cyberinfrastructure, to achieve the vision of the Virtual Physiological Human.

57 © 2011 VPH Institute Title: Future and Emerging Technologies for the Virtual Physiological Human. Summary: The Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) is framework of methods and technologies that, once established, will allow the integrative investigation of the human body, seen as a whole. While for some specific clinical targets disease-specific VPH technology is already being deployed in research hospitals, the grand vision of a comprehensive VPH will be possible only through a generation of radically new technologies capable of enabling a completely new approach, which is holistic and personalised, to biomedical research and clinical practice. Objective: Proposals should lay the foundations for radically new, potentially disruptive technologies for framing, building, and taming the complexity that a fully integrative approach to the human physiopathology involves.
