Energy Efficient Technologies for Building Envelopes Workshop
25-27 November 2020, Dresden, Germany
According to the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD), all newly planned buildings shall be “nearly zero-energy” buildings by December 2020. Furthermore, long term renovation strategies for existing buildings are needed to ensure a low and zero-emission building stock all over Europe by 2050.
Nanotechnology offers Energy Saving Solutions for Buildings such as Smart Windows, Solar Energy Harvesting, Active Energy Storage or Super Insulative Elements and can therefore be an important part to achieve this mission.
We welcome you to a colorful technical workshop to see the latest trends and discuss about most promising technologies for the Energy Efficient Buildings of the future!
Day 1 – Energy efficient technologies for building envelopes
Day 2 – Reliability, life time and characterization
Day 3 – Energy smart solutions in membrane architecture (German only)

Innovative Europe: The Way Forward. Taking Stock and Thinking Ahead
18 February 2020, Brusels, Belgium
Climate change, digital revolution and demographic trends are transforming European economy and society, defining huge challenges for the industrial ecosystem and deeply affecting citizens’ way of life. The next five years will be crucial to set the Europe’s role on the world stage: as outlined in the President von der Leyen’s Political Guidelines, the new EU leadership is called to adopt and implement a wide set of very ambitious policies, that will enable the EU to lead the transition to a healthy planet and a new digital world and to remain innovative and competitive at global level.
I-Com will organise on February 18 (h14:30 – h18:45) at The Office in Brussels (Rue d‘Arlon 80) the Public Conference “Innovative Europe: The Way Forward. Taking Stock and Thinking Ahead”.
The event will give the floor to EU institutions, trade and consumer associations, companies, civil society organisations and other relevant stakeholders to discuss the future agenda for an Innovative Europe through three different panels – Setting the Future Digital agenda, Connecting EU Health and Industrial Policies and Towards the European Green Deal – designed to reflect the main political guidelines of the new European Commission.
Innovative Europe: The Way Forward is the final event of the I-Com 2019/2020 Brussels Flagship Initiative Back to the Future. Therefore, the conference will be the occasion to present the I-Com Blueprint and a related Manifesto, which finally aim at informing the new EU institutions about the state of innovation in three sectors (Digital, Healthcare and Energy & Mobility) and making recommendations for the new institutional cycle to contribute to a social and economic agenda oriented to innovation.
OpenEARTH Conference on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation
12-14 February 2020, Thessaloniki, Greece
The Conference aims to address the main issue of climate change adaptation and mitigation in primary and secondary sectors through the promotion of agricultural practices and modern effective technologies.

Past | Present - WeAre#EuropeForCulture project
6-7 February 2020, Brussels, Belgium
WeAre#EuropeForCulture, financed in the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, had the objective to realize a series of pop-up exhibitions across 2019 in various European cities, to celebrate the diversity of European cultural heritage and to empower citizens in a more participative approach to cultural heritage.
The exhibitions are co-created joining institutional cultural heritage with crowdsourced stories and personal items.
On 6 February 2020, a sparkling event at the House of European History in Brussels will eventually celebrate the experiences of all the participatory exhibitions that took place throughtout Europe. Bringing together images, recordings and interactions from the various locations which hosted and created the pop-up exhibitions, PAST|PRESENT is a kaleidoscope of local history in European countries, showcasing the variety and commonalities of our cultural heritage.
A multiscreen setting will allow visitors to travel through and interact with the stories unfolded at the different events throughout Europe.
The exhibition will open with an invitation-only event at the House of European History on February 6th, 2020.
From February 7th onwards it will be open to the general public.
