Global Thrombosis Research Seminars

Network to Network Series

The INVENT-VTE Network is thrilled to announce the launch of our new brand new Global Thrombosis Research Seminars Series (Network to Network Series) featuring inspiring and impactful international thrombosis research initiatives, collaborations, and efforts from across INVENT network-member countries.

The series is designed to showcase network-related research and initiatives that highlight:

  • Unique international collaborations that lead to practice-changing clinical VTE-related studies;
  • Important developments and initiatives in national networks that improve clinical VTE research;
  • The importance of international collaborative research and INVENT’s role as a driver of international collaboration research;
  • Unique research initiatives and collaborations in networks that inspire other networks


2023 Program

This series will consist of four quarterly 1-hour seminars throughout the calendar year (March / June / October / December). Each seminar will include presentations by international experts from around the INVENT-VTE Network and a 15-minute Q&A at the end of each seminar.

Past recordings are available for our 2022 seminar series ( November 2021, February 2022 and May 2022).
