1. Events - Bringing urban electric mobility to the next level - 27 February 2015, Brussels
The workshop will reflect upon experience of cities in Europe and beyond in promoting electric mobility and the role of national and international frameworks and initiatives.
Potential next steps for collaboration to boost electric mobility around the world will be developed. Different electric mobility experts will present their latest findings and opinions on future developments and needs. Cities are invited to present their experience in implementing electric mobility. The workshop provides a mutual learning opportunity for cities and offers latest insights in the global developments in electric mobility.
2. Success Stories - Robots of the deep
Underwater robots can explore seas and rivers, gathering in groups to solve problems together, if they learn to cooperate. How can we teach robots?

3. Research Headlines - Printable cables could spell green energy boost
Superconductors can provide a greener way to transport energy but are expensive to make and maintain. An EU-funded project has developed a way to 'print' the superconducting tapes that form power cables, reducing costs and opening the way to their wider use by industry.

4. Events - Innovations, Information, and Imaging - EU symposia at the 2015 AAAS Annual Meeting - 12-16 February 2015, San Jose, California, USA
Science is the basis for a better future and a healthy economy!This is why, through Horizon 2020, the European Union is investing so much in efficient and responsible research and innovation.
With a budget of nearly 80 billion euro from 2014 to 2020, Horizon 2020 is the largest funding programme for research and innovation in the world. It will support excellence in science, leadership in industrial technologies and help us tackle grand societal challenges, such as climate change, food security, health and transport. These are all priority concerns of European citizens.

6. Events - Conference on Complex Networks and Climate Variability - 11-12 April 2015, Vienna
The complex network paradigm is a fruitful tool for understanding complex systems in various areas of science. Over the last years, the research field of ‘Climate Networks’ (i.e., the application of complex network tools to climate science) has produced many novel results that have improved our understanding of complex climate phenomena.
These range from predicting the El Nino/Southern Oscillation, seasonal changes in the monsoon regions, early warning indicators of climate transitions and descriptions of ocean circulation coherence. In addition, many new tools and theoretical results have been generated which facilitate the network analysis and the interpretation of the results as applied to climate data.

7. Success Stories - The Plight of the Pollinators
Pollinators like bumblebees are declining in Europe. What are the causes, the consequences and the possible solutions? Researchers know that the causes are multiple: a combination of habitat loss, pathogens, alien species, agrichemical pollution and even climate change.

8. Research Headlines - Fighting seaweed with green technology
Biofouling - or biological fouling - is the build-up of plants, algae and other marine organisms on wet surfaces, which can corrode and damage objects such as ships, pipes, and bridge supports. The issue has long defied engineers and scientists. The EU funded research project SEACOAT has developed a novel green technology that applies special coatings on vulnerable surfaces to control biofouling.
