CO2-based Chemicals Production using Industrial Biotechnology

24 September 2014, Lyon, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in CO2 based chemicals production and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps.

CO2 is increasingly being considered by many as a commodity rather than a waste product. The largest current use for CO2 is currently in enhanced oil recovery. However, CO2 holds great potential as a feedstock for chemicals production using IB processes, especially in the EU where the research base is strong and where there is an abundance of CO2 available. CO2 is not part of the food chain so avoids any issues over food v fuel. However, public perception, and logistical and cost challenges in terms of CO2 transport and distribution could hamper the potential of CO2 to be used for chemicals and substantial R&D is needed to bring many opportunities to fruition.


Big Data in Pharma

23 September 2014, London, UK

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The volume of data is exploding, and that is challenging drug makers' ability to transform big data into additional revenue. But companies who can exploit big data and analytics will have the potential to improve their productivity and efficiency, especially in the discovery, research and development of new products, experts say. McKinsey has predicted big data could reduce research and development costs for pharmaceutical makers by $40 billion to $70 billion. They anticipate that data will form the cornerstone of future value-based assessment and also be used for gaining market access, and enhance competitiveness.


Workshop on Interoperability and Open-Source Solutions for the Internet of Things

18 September 2014, Split, Croatia

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The Internet of Things (IoT) can be seen as the next evolutionary step in the Internet life-cycle, with already more than 10 billion connected devices in 2013. We are witnessing the emergence of open-source solutions targeting the IoT and cloud integration which can further drive innovation and provision of utility-driven IoT services.

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from industry, academia, and standardisation bodies, to showcase their practical work, exchange ideas and experiences, discuss novel solutions and future development. Workshop participants will also find common ground for collaboration in the area of interoperability for the Internet of Things.
