Opportunities for a Knowledge and Innovation Community in Urban Mobility

29 March 2017, Brussels, Belgium

It is our pleasure to invite you to the conference 'Opportunities for a Knowledge and Innovation Community in Urban Mobility', organised by the European Commission that will take place in les Ateliers des Tanneurs (60A rue des Tanneurs), Brussels, Belgium on 29 March 2017.

The European Commission recognises the essential role of entrepreneurship, skills training, business development, and demonstration actions to advance innovation in the field of urban mobility, and bring together representatives from businesses, research centres and universities to enable world-class education, innovation and entrepreneurship to thrive in Europe.

At this event you will have a unique opportunity to build networks with other key players in the field and hear about plans for a potential EIT Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) in Urban Mobility in Europe, which is planned to be published by the European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT) in early 2018.

Around 150 representatives from all sectors and across the EU are expected to come to this event for a chance to learn more about the prospect of collaborating for innovative urban mobility as part a potential KIC application.

This event is a great opportunity to share and to develop plans how to participate in and shape Europe's urban mobility future! Come along and be ready for the planned call for the KIC in Urban Mobility in 2018! As space is limited, we encourage you to register at the earliest opportunity!

Opportunities for a Knowledge and Innovation Community in Urban Mobility

29 March 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Save the date for the event 'Opportunities for a Knowledge and Innovation Community in Urban Mobility' to be held on 29 March 2017 in Brussels. This event is a unique opportunity to hear about the preparations to launch a call for proposals for the Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) in Urban Mobility in Europe, which is likely to be published in early 2018.

This 1-day awareness event provides an opportunity to discuss and hear about the EU's transport policies in urban mobility. This information could help you to propose where a Knowledge and Innovation Community in Urban Mobility could be funded to provide a real added value to deliver innovative solutions in urban mobility in Europe.

The Knowledge and Innovation Communities carry out activities that cover the entire innovation chain: training and education programmes, reinforcing the journey from research to the market, innovation projects, as well as business incubators and accelerators. KICs enable world-class education, innovation and entrepreneurship to thrive in Europe.

With this KIC call in 2018, the European Commission intends to support sustainable solutions for urban mobility by partnerships with businesses, research centres and universities.

This event is a great opportunity to share and to develop plans how to participate in and shape Europe's urban mobility future!

Further information will be published after 24.1.2017


FutureTDM Workshop II - European Parliament event on text and data mining

29 March 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Using machine technology to sift through big data can help us further our understanding of the arts, business, science and beyond.

This provides an opportunity for economic and cultural growth. Yet in the EU, we aren’t doing as much of this text and data mining as in other parts of the world.

For the past 18 months, EU funded Project FutureTDM has been exploring why. Building on our findings (presented at our first workshop) we are now producing policy recommendations and guidelines to help improve EU uptake of TDM.

We will present these along with our latest report on the economics of TDM at the European Parliament workshop on 29 March. After the panel discussion, we will hold an informal session where stakeholders can provide further input on policy specific to their sector.

Quantum Technologies - How will they change our world?

29 March 2017, Brussels, Belgium

The expectations are high: Quantum technologies are supposed to bring transformative advances to society. Future developments in e.g. robotics or autonomous vehicles strongly depend on whether their potential can be fully unleashed.

The field of quantum research and its technological promises, however, are as intriguing as they can be incomprehensible.

With this event we also strive to break the futuristic term down to its possible meaning for our everyday life:

  • How will future computing look like and what timescales are we speaking about?
  • What impact might quantum technologies have on e. g. communication and cryptography?
  • The latest European Commission’s flagship initiative will address the quantum topic in depth. How can science and industry contribute – and collaborate?
