Bio-based Plastics – How do we Grow the EU Industry?

1 December 2014, Brussels

This workshop aims to identify workable solutions to the major hurdles hampering the development of the bio-based plastics sector in the EU. We are especially interested in PLA and PHA as we consider these bio-based plastics as having the highest potential for deployment in the EU. Input from market, policy and technological experts within the area of bioplastics is crucial to allow us to develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry.

Today, bio-based plastics have an established market, demonstrating rapid growth both in Europe and globally. While Europe is currently the largest producer and user of bio-based plastics, this situation is expected to change in the future with production increasingly being based in countries where feedstocks are cheaper and where production costs are lower. Even with increasing fossil fuel prices expected to make bio-based plastics more competitive compared to fossil-derived plastics, ensuring the cost-competitiveness of EU bio-based plastics production compared to other regions globally is expected to become an increasingly difficult challenge.


Renaturing Cities: Systemic Urban Governance for Social Cohesion

1-2 December 2014, Milan, Italy

The EU Conference on "Renaturing Cities: Systemic Urban Governance for Social Cohesion", under the auspices of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU aims to to inspire Research and Innovation policies on sustainable urban development by bringing together scientists, policy makers, the business sector and representatives of the civil society.

The conference will focus on multilevel governance for urban and peri-urban areas and highlight the relation between supranational, national and sub-national scales, as well as the interplay of actors within these scales. Therefore, new instruments of urban governance based on a strong public-private partnership will be explored in order to facilitate the interplay between policy-making, market-driven actions and grassroots initiatives.

Sharing experience to better implement the HR strategy for researchers - Mutual Learning Seminars

20 November 2014, Brussels, Belgium

The European Commission is committed to increasing the attractiveness of research careers in Europe and to improving employment and working conditions for researchers. Further work is necessary to implement a sound Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R), based upon the uptake of the Charter and Code concept. HR managers from research institutions and funding organisations will come together to share their experiences and best practices when implementing the HRS4R in their institutions for the benefit of the researchers. Participants will also share creative and innovative, and yet feasible, ideas on the key elements needed to improve the current HRS4R implementation procedure.
