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.

4th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (27-28/03/2017) will focus on sustainable transport and CCSU

27-28 March 2017, London, United Kingdom

The event intends to stimulate discussion among university leaders on the development of innovative and multidisciplinary research and education programmes. The conference will also offer specific opportunities for “clustering” knowledge, in which research and education leaders from different disciplines will present their views on the specific priorities of the SET-Plan.

The event is the fourth of the series of six events aiming to mobilise Europe’s university community in the field of energy. It carries forward the activities outlined in the “Roadmap for European Universities in Energy” published in December 2016.

Through the event, participants will also have the opportunity to engage in discussions on the development of thematic dossiers and recommendations from the university community on ways forward in the different SET-Plan, with a particular view on R&I actions and higher education activities.

EUA and the UNI-SET consortium have launched a Call for Contributions welcoming proposals for contributions for parallel sessions in form of good practices from university projects and initiatives (download the Call for Contributions on the event`s website. Deadline for submissions is 31 January 2017). The ECE themes are based on the priorities of the SET-Plan. For any enquiries please contact uni-set@eua.be
