The EMBO Meeting is an annual event held in Europe to promote the life sciences and the exchange of scientific results. The meeting encourages scientists to look beyond their own fields, engage with the international scientific community and explore interdisciplinary approaches to research in the life sciences.
Participants experience new perspectives on topics that cover the entire range of the life sciences – from studies of molecules and the cell all the way up to investigation of larger, complex biological systems.

15-17 June 2015, Brdo Castle, Slovenia
The conference is organized under the auspices of the three FP7 projects:
EAGLE: Enhancing Education, Training And Communication Processes For Informed Behaviors And Decision-Making Related To Ionizing Radiation Risks
OPERRA: Open Project for the European Radiation Research Area
PREPARE: Innovative integrated tools and platforms for radiological emergency preparedness and post-accident response in Euroe
The 3 projects want to receive feedback from and foster discussion between the range of stakeholders, professionals, academics....
The conference will be an opportunity for extensive exchange of results from the scientific research and FP7 projects and discussions on public communication, risk perception and ethics in the field of all nuclear applications (e.g. industry, medicine, security), natural radioactivity (e.g. radon) and radiological protection (in nuclear and radiological emergency management, low doses, communicating uncertainty, mass media communication, public understanding of ionizing radiation, EU research needs …)
The conference will involve an international level of different stakeholders; from experts for public communication, media representatives, researchers from social sciences, human and natural science, radiation protection officers, practitioners from nuclear medicine, nuclear power plant operators, to other nuclear industry professionals, nuclear safety authorities, project partners, but also NGOs and representatives from civil society.

The 9th GEO European Projects' Workshop is co-organised by the European Commission, the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI). The event is recorded and streamed live here.
The workshop brings together European players interested in and actively contributing to the Global Earth Observations System of Systems (GEOSS). The aim is to enable participants to present their work and discuss maximising benefits from the European contribution to this international effort.
The event is timed on the cusp of the new GEO Strategic Plan and the upcoming Transitional Work Programme of GEO for 2015, enabling to build momentum and coherence in Europe around plans for the next decade. In this context, Horizon 2020 research programme and the EU Programme for Earth observation, Copernicus, are key vehicles to contribute to GEOSS and respond to European policy priorities.
Detailed agenda is here.
