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.

Visegrad 4 for Secure Data - Contribution of V4 to H2020 R&I effort in data security

28 May 2015, Brussels, Belgium

A digital environment - with the possibility of massive data exchange and processing - is expected in all fields that should define the scope of activities in the forthcoming two-year programming period of Horizon 2020. In parallel, the V4 countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia ) have issued a common position for a Digital Single Market based on digital economy and cyber security. If the V4 countries want to deal with these challenges then they need to support the research and innovation activities in this area as well as improve the business environment. The following topics will be discussed by our distinguished speakers:

• Releasing the potential of cloud computing in Europe - building the secure environment for big and small partners

• User friendly and easy cyber security solutions for citizens and SMEs

• Data driven economy in V4 and their contribution to European activities 

The conference will be held at premises of the Permanent Representation of the Slovak Republic to the EU, Avenue de Cortenbergh 79, 1000 Brussels Belgium.

Building Bridges in Translational Medicine

27-28 May 2015, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Navigating the pathway of translational research is a challenging undertaking. Success depends on a goal-driven mindset, effective input from multiple disciplinary domains, multiparty collaboration and a full understanding of the regulatory requirements of product development. Accessing high quality partners and services is beset by fragmentation and uncertainty.

EATRIS ERIC – the European Infrastructure for Translational Medicine, is a permanent academic research infrastructure that supports researchers and funders in de-risking and adding value to their high potential products in development. Using a simple ‘one-stop shop’ mechanism, industry and academia alike can access leading translational research facilities and key expertise across Europe.

The second EATRIS conference will bring together key international stakeholders in translational research. Over two days they will present and discuss the main challenges in translational research, together with the new developments that EATRIS ERIC contributes to the field.

Justice Needs Trust: From Law & Order to Trust-Based Policies

26 May 2015, Brussels

Over the course of three years, the FIDUCIA team has investigated alternative ways of shaping policies addressing criminal justice and crime reduction across Europe.

The FIDUCIA project is based on the idea that the best starting point for criminal policy is to ask "Why do people obey the law?" rather than "Why do people break the law?" Inverting the  traditional criminological question in this way directs our attention to the fact that compliance with the law is to do with norms and values. The FIDUCIA message is that the best long-term results in domestic and European criminal policies are to be found in strategies that foster trust in justice and thus encourage normative compliance with the law.

This final Conference will provide an opportunity to learn about the projects’ findings and to consider the policy briefs that the FIDUCIA team has produced in relation to the four categories of criminal justice problem that are pan-European priorities: cybercrime, human trafficking and trafficking of goods, and the criminalisation of irregular migrants. The FIDUCIA team will also present findings from FIDUCIA surveys on trust in justice across Europe.
