The BAMB - Buildings As Material Banks - Project Consortium has the pleasure to invite you to the launch of its Stakeholder Network. The EU-funded H2020 BAMB project brings 16 parties throughout Europe together for one mission: enabling a systemic shift in the building sector by creating circular solutions.
Today, building materials end up as waste when no longer needed. To avoid destroying ecosystems, increasing environmental costs and creating risks of resource scarcity, the building industry needs to move towards a circular economy – and BAMB will provide the tools.
The first BAMB Stakeholder Network meeting will introduce you to the project agenda and provides you with the opportunity to get involved by joining the Stakeholder Network.

The Psychonomic Society is the home for scientists who study how the mind works. Members of the Society are experimental psychologists among whose numbers are some of the most distinguished researchers in the field.
Many of us are concerned with the application of psychology to health, technology and education, and many of us use converging methods such as neuroscience and computational science to achieve our research goals.
This international conference is one of several new initiatives being launched by the Psychonomic Society and it is already promising to be an exciting meeting as being collaborating with the Spanish Society for Experimental Psychology (SEPEX) and the European Society for Cognitive Psychology (ESCOP), to ensure that the best of European and North American Experimental Psychology will be on show.

ITER is the large-scale international scientific experiment that aims to demonstrate the scientific and industrial feasibility of fusion energy for peaceful purposes. The Monaco-ITER International Fusion Energy Days (MIIFED) combined with the ITER Business Forum (IBF) will bring together testimonies and experiences from the world industry about their participation in ITER.
The conference will also review the progress achieved so far, the status of construction and manufacturing, and the upcoming industrial activities. Through B2B and B2C contacts, the event will also stimulate networking and technology transfer.

3-5 February 2016, Antwerp, Belgium
1515 is the year that the English politician and humanist Thomas More found the inspiration to write his Utopia in Antwerp city. In 1516, he published the first edition. More’s Utopia was one of the most important works of European humanism, and contained many provocative elements that encouraged reflection on the nature of European society of the 16th century (SN Eds., 2015). Five hundred years later, on the same location we conclude a research project on what seems to have become a European Utopia: a Union where there is no poverty. The ImPRovE research project contributes to a better understanding on how social progress can be achieved in Europe and how the EU and its member states can tackle the persistent problem of poverty in Europe.
The conference opens on Wednesday 3 February with a round table on social innovation in the morning and an afternoon and evenening session on More’s Utopia from the perspective of Social Europe, organised in cooperation with the Centre Pieter Gillis.
On Thursday 4 and Friday 5 February, the results of the ImPRovE project, financed under the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission, are presented and discussed.
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.
