Clean Air Forum

16-17 November 2017, Paris, France

The European Clean Air Forum will provide a basis for structured dialogues, exchange of knowledge and good practices, and enhance capacity of relevant stakeholders to improve air quality. It aims to reflect on the development of policies, projects and programmes in the context of air pollution and air quality, and facilitate the implementation of European, national and local air policies.

The Clean Air Forum will focus on three themes: air quality in cities; agriculture and air quality and clean air business opportunities. The conference itself will thus bring together experts on the above topics as well as decision-makers and stakeholders in a two-day conference.

In this occasion, information will be spread about: the H2020 funded projects LOWBRASYS  - on particle emissions from brakes and their reduction - PEMS4NANO, Sureal23 and DOWN2TEN - on understanding and measurement of particles below the current 23 nanometres and development of a PEMS system; and on the two RTD Horizon Prizes for Retrofit and Clean Engine of the Future.


Robot-Assisted Disaster Response Technology Day (TRADR Project)

17 November 2017, Rotterdam, Netherlands

TRADR is a European Project developing and deploying technology for human-robot teaming for robot-assisted disaster response.

It is on the forefront of such efforts in Europe. The Technology Day will show our achievements and share insights gained during the 4 years of the project, including our experience from the TRADR deployment in Amatrice, Italy, shortly after the earthquake in 2016, as well as the industrial use case experiments carried out in 2016 in Dortmund and in 2017 in Rotterdam.

The program will consist of presentations and posters of TRADR scientific results and end-user experience with using robots, practical demonstration of the TRADR integrated system and a panel discussion.

The participants will have an opportunity to make contacts with experts within and outside the TRADR project.

Workshop "Agri-food SMEs collaborating for innovation along the supply chain - What, who, how?"

17 October 2017, Brussels, Belgium

 

On 17 October 2017, the European Commission (Directorate-General Research & Innovation, Directorate General Agriculture and Rural Development) organised a workshop entitled "Agri-food SMEs collaborating for innovation along the supply chain - What, who, how?. This workshop was organised in collaboration with 2 Strategic Working Groups (SWG 'Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems / AKIS' and SWG 'Food Systems/FS') of the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR).

The aim of this workshop was:

  • to showcase agri-food SMEs' best practices on collaborating for innovation along the supply chain;
  • to discuss the challenges and opportunities of such co-innovation:
  • to discuss how these practices can be supported and stimulated.

The workshop was invitation-only, and brought together approximately 60 experts. Participants were mostly representatives of agri-food SMEs, but also technology experts, innovation experts, intermediaries (innovation clusters, incubators...), and policy makers.

The agenda and presentations can be found below, as well as a participants list and some photographs in a Photogallery. A report is under preparation and will be added later.
