Our Common Future under Climate Change
6-10 July 2015, Paris, France
This four-day conference will be the largest forum for the scientific community to come together ahead of the 21st UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP21), which will be hosted by France in December 2015 (“Paris Climat 2015”). Building on the results of IPCC 5th Assessment Report (AR5), the Conference will address key issues concerning climate change in the broader context of global change. It will offer an opportunity to discuss solutions for both mitigation and adaptation issues. The Conference will also welcome Side Events organized by different stakeholders.
The conference is organized under the umbrella of ICSU, Future Earth, UNESCO and major French research institutions, with the support of the French Government.
During the event, the European Commission will present 2 parallel sessions:
- Post-2030 decarbonisation pathways in Europe
- European Collaborative Research and Innovation for Climate Action

19th International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA 2015) - Smart Systems for Green and Automated Driving
7-8 July 2015, Berlin
Leading engineers and scholars from all around the world are cordially invited to participate in the dialogue and submit proposals for papers addressing ongoing research and novel developments in this field.
Discussions at the conference will focus particularly on the application areas mentioned below. A special attention will be given to topics covered in public funding programmes like the European Green Vehicles Initiative PPP of Horizon 2020.
The AMAA 2015 will be opened with speeches by Willy Van Puymbroeck, Head of Unit Components, DG CNECT, European Commission and Stefan Mengel, Head of Unit Electronic Systems and Electric Mobility, Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Germany).
Further keynote speakers include Remi Bastien (Renault), Patrice Reilhac (Valeo) and Fabio Marchio (ST Microelectronics) among others.
A panel on the recently published EPoSS Roadmap on Automated Driving (http://www.smart-systems-integration.org/public/news-events/news/eposs-roadmap-smart-systems-for-automated-driving-now-published ) will discuss evolutionary and revolutionary development paths.
Furthermore, the conference will look beyond technology and into the relation between IOT, robotics and cognitive systems of green, automated and connected driving by keynotes about the PAN-Robots project by Kay Fürstenberg (SICK), AIOTI by Marko Haeckel (Bosch) and Smart Systems for CO2 Reduction by Thomas Gallner (Continental).
Legal aspects of autonomous driving will be covered by Gaelle Kermorgant (ALFRATEC). Latest developments in technology will be covered by a multitude of interesting technical contributions on the topics ADAS and automated driving, C2X and ITS, Green vehicle electronic systems & concepts.
Last not least, a session on global opportunities and European clusters in electric mobility will inform on selected international markets and supply chains and strategies of European clusters.

euRathlon/SHERPA Summer School 2015
31 May - 5 June 2015, Oulu, Finland
The euRathlon/SHERPA Summer School 2015 has been designed as a five-day course to provide participants with a full overview and hands-on experience with multi-domain real robotic systems. The intended audience is undergraduate students, Master students, PhD students, postdoc students, researchers from universities/organizations and engineers from industry companies around the world.
The summer school will provide an opportunity for attendees to deepen their understanding of outdoor autonomous robotics, to share ideas and experiences, and also to prepare themselves for euRathlon competitions. Participants also will be encouraged to join in new teams for participating in euRathlon 2015 Challenge where ground, underwater and aerial robots will have to cooperate in order to perform a series of tasks in scenarios inspired on the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
We welcome papers from non-competitors, if they are within the scope. We encourage especially young researchers to participate. There will be the possibility to earn study credits (doctoral or basic) from the summer school. Students enrolled in EU Universities, EU Research Centres or EU Companies have the possibility of getting travel support.

Our world, our dignity, our future - European Development Days
3-4 June 2015
2015 is the European Year for Development and European Development Days will be its flagship event.
Each individual and every policy have a role to play for a more sustainable and peaceful world. In 2015, we want to tell stories from around the world to show that regardless of where we come from or where we want to go, our aspirations remain the same. We strive for a stable and peaceful world, education for our children, jobs for young people and a decent life on a planet, of which we need to take a better care.
This year, participants will address issues such as the conditions for creating sustainable growth, the promotion of universal and fundamental rights, or how greater cooperation among all actors can help to eradicate poverty and reduce inequality. On this regard, participants will be invited to debate, solve (brainstorm) and share best practices.
The focus for EDD15 echoes the motto of the European Year for Development - ‘Our world, our dignity, our future’.
The NOPOOR project will be presenting a LAB SESSION entitled " Research for change: New knowledge for poverty eradication".
The FOODSECURE project will also be presenting a LAB SESSION entitled "Visions ofthe youth for achieving global food and nutrition security".
