Understanding and Tackling the Migration Challenge: The Role of Research

4-5 February 2016, Brussels

The Directorate General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission is holding a two-day conference to explore and demonstrate how European research can support policy makers in designing effective and sustainable migration policies.

To this end, past and current research on migration -including on integration, circular migration, migration and development, data and statistical modelling- will be presented and debated from a policy perspective. Findings from social sciences and economic research will feature at the conference alongside short- to long-term health care needs of migrants as well as the link between climate change and current and future migratory processes. The identification of future research needs, both immediate and long-term, will be a cross cutting theme throughout the conference. The Science4Refugees initiative, designed to identify and provide opportunities for refugees with scientific qualifications within the European Research Area, will also be presented at the conference. Participants will comprise leading researchers in the field of migration, including many coordinators from EU funded research projects, EU and national policy makers as well as other relevant stakeholders. The format of the event is interactive and we expect the audience and speakers to engage in a fruitful dialogue on the role of research in tackling the current and future challenges that migration poses, both to Europe and at a global level.

Public Sector Goes Circular

25 January 2016, Brussels

Accelerating the transition to a circular economy –
New business models and the role of the public sector

Capitalising on the interest created by the launch of the revised Circular Economy Package, the event aims to support the governmental transformation towards systemic, circular economy strategies which will stimulate innovation and promising, new, employment opportunities.

The event will show how business models, technologies and capabilities influence the shift. High-level representatives from government, businesses and associations will debate how EU-level policy becomes local policy, which then interacts with private interests.

This event is jointly organised by the European Commission's DG Research & Innovation and the European Centre for Government Transformation (ECGT) and will take place on Monday, 25 January 2016, from 9.30 to 14.00.

New Venue: Van Maerlant Building, Room 02 Rue Van Maerlant 2, 1049 Bruxelles.

To register, please send an email indicating your name and organisation to: RTD-ENV-PUBLIC-SECTOR-CIRCULAR@ec.europa.eu

As places are limited they will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
