OcuTher is the Educational Network in Ocular Drug Delivery and Therapeutics. It is coordinated by the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and led by Prof. Arto Urtti.

The joint meeting between OcuTher and IT-DED³ was a success! Organised as a satellite seminar to the EVER Congress 2019 in Nice on October 16, this joint activity was a first step towards a promising collaboration between the two MSCA-ITN networks. This goal was certainly met. The meeting opened with outstanding presentations by Prof. Morten Carstens Moe, Head of Research at the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Oslo, and Prof. Tor Paaske Utheim, Director of Innovation at the Oslo University Hospital. Presentations about ongoing research by six of the ESRs followed – three from each project. The afternoon closed with a networking session that provided an opportunity to the ESRs from both projects to expand their research network and get to know their peers, with whom they share similar experiences.                                                                 

The meeting was followed by the three day Congress 2019 (, where OcuTher and  IT-DED³ shared a booth at the exhibition area (spot nr. 6).
