On 8 October 2015 the European Commission, DG Research and Innovation in close cooperation with the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) is organising a conference on "Sustainable Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in the Bioeconomy - A Challenge for Europe” in Brussels, in the European Commission's Charlemagne Building.
This conference is expected to be a cornerstone in the broader foresight process, initiated by the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) in 2006, aimed at identifying principles which would enable the primary production sectors (agriculture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture) to cope with a range of complex and interlinked challenges over the next 30-40 years. The event will include a broad debate, based on the findings of the work carried out by the Fourth Foresight Expert Group (FEG4) aimed at reaching a common understanding on the state of the bioeconomy and principles leading to a sustainable bioeconomy. With an emphasis on possible future scenarios, the exercise aims to explore the possible outcomes of developing the paradigm of the bioeconomy, with the fundamental constraint of sustainability. The debate should help to set the research and innovation agenda, establish priorities, and provide a firm footing for future policy development.

The Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) Urban Europe invites you to the events entitled 'Transition towards Sustainable and Liveable Urban Futures' that mark and celebrate the launching of the initiative's Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA).
These events, jointly organised with the European institutions, will take place in Brussels on Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 September 2015.
The JPI Urban Europe has developed a SRIA with the ambition to set a scene for a new urban research and innovation paradigm. It embraces the complexity of urbanisation, bridging the innovation space from strategic research to implementation. At the events, the SRIA will be presented to a wide audience of urban stakeholders in order to raise commitment of the relevant stakeholders in policy, research and innovation communities and to prepare the first steps towards the implementation of the SRIA.
Registration is no longer possible but you can follow the event at the European Parliament via webstreaming from 14:30 on 29 September.

During this conference, the SCOT (Smart CO2 Transformation) project team will present its Vision on Carbon Dioxide Utilisation (CDU) and the Strategic European Research Agenda for Europe.
The floor is opened to the views of high level speakers from politics and industry. We expect plenty of discussions, and welcome you to take part in it.
SCOT wants to hear the voices of all participants. Break-out sessions in smaller groups promise intense knowledge exchange and discussions on the various aspects of CDU.
This is the place to hear about the latest developments on Carbon Dioxide Utilisation and help shape the future of CDU in Europe.
Your input during the conference will directly feed into the final Vision and strategic European Research Agenda that will be presented to the European Commission. These reports will cover both the future role of CDU in Europe and future support mechanisms for CDU.
SCOT is a project that has received funding under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration.
