The BAMB - Buildings As Material Banks - Project Consortium has the pleasure to invite you to the launch of its Stakeholder Network. The EU-funded H2020 BAMB project brings 16 parties throughout Europe together for one mission: enabling a systemic shift in the building sector by creating circular solutions.
Today, building materials end up as waste when no longer needed. To avoid destroying ecosystems, increasing environmental costs and creating risks of resource scarcity, the building industry needs to move towards a circular economy – and BAMB will provide the tools.
The first BAMB Stakeholder Network meeting will introduce you to the project agenda and provides you with the opportunity to get involved by joining the Stakeholder Network.

The Psychonomic Society is the home for scientists who study how the mind works. Members of the Society are experimental psychologists among whose numbers are some of the most distinguished researchers in the field.
Many of us are concerned with the application of psychology to health, technology and education, and many of us use converging methods such as neuroscience and computational science to achieve our research goals.
This international conference is one of several new initiatives being launched by the Psychonomic Society and it is already promising to be an exciting meeting as being collaborating with the Spanish Society for Experimental Psychology (SEPEX) and the European Society for Cognitive Psychology (ESCOP), to ensure that the best of European and North American Experimental Psychology will be on show.

Synergies between EU funding for research & innovation and structural funds are essential to develop regional research and innovation capacities, and drive the economic growth in Europe.
On 12 April 2016, the European Commission organised a workshop which gathered more than 100 participants from national and regional authorities and from industry and research. The aim was to discuss the obstacles that prevent the implementation of such synergies, and to explore ways to facilitate regional cooperation in the field of Key Enabling Technologies.
The workshop was associated with the "Knowledge Exchange Platform (KEP), which is a cooperation platform between the European Commissions's Research and Innovation DG and the European Committee of the Regoins (CoR).
