Designing future energy policies: Social sciences and humanities to accelerate the energy transition

22 January 2019, Brussels, Belgium

Energy policies cannot fulfil their maximum potential if the knowledge stemming from social sciences and humanities research is not factored into the decision-making process. Citizens should be at the core of all policies, including those to do with energy. This conference will underline how crucial social knowledge is to accelerating the decarbonisation of our economy and making a real dent in climate change. It will also present concrete recommendations on how to advance and better design future European energy policies in the context of the upcoming research and innovation framework: Horizon Europe. The event is organised as part of the SHAPE ENERGY H2020 EU-funded project. It aims at generating new knowledge, support evidence-based policymaking, produce interdisciplinary solutions and develop Europe's expertise in using and applying available research into the energy transition decision-making process. It will bring the perfect opportunity for a wide range of high level panellists and senior stakeholders to connect the dots, debate the key issues and think through on the political and social changes as well the necessary research and innovation investments needed to further integrate social sciences in the future of policymaking.

The Periodic Table and us: its history, meaning and element scarcity

22 January 2019, Brussels

Join us on Tuesday 22 January 2019, from 14:30 – 16:30 in the European Parliament in Brussels, Room ASP 5G305 for the launching of the EuChemS Periodic Table depicting element scarcity, and to listen to a series of talks on the history of the periodic table, its meaning, and what lies ahead in the future.
The event is chaired by Member of the European Parliament Catherine Stihler. Indeed, the phone you may be using right now to read this is made up of some 30 elements – over half of which may give cause for concern in the years to come because of increasing scarcity.
With some 10 million smartphones being discarded or replaced every month in the European Union alone, serious actions to tackle the challenges ahead are needed.
Element scarcity is intrinsically linked with discussions on the Circular Economy, more efficient recycling practices, innovative alternatives, consumer behaviour, and more besides.
Unless solutions are provided, we risk seeing many of the natural elements that make up the world around us run out or become unusable – whether because of limited supplies, their location in conflict areas, or our incapacity to fully recycle them.

2019 Infoday, Ensuring Excellent Research by Investing in Researchers Talents, Skills and Career Development

29 January 2019, Brussels, Belgium

Implementing the Human Resources Strategy to comply with art. 32 of the H2020 multi-beneficiary grant agreement

This INFO-DAY addresses 'newcomer' universities, research institutions and research funders investing in researchers’ talents, skills and career development by implementing the 40 principles of the 'European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (C&C)'.

It also addresses beneficiaries and potential applicants of H2020 contracts/projects who have to comply with article 32 stipulating the need to take measures to implement the European Charter and Code (C&C) for the benefit of all researchers and their institution.

It also brings forward policy issues related to skills and talent management in an Open Science environment closely linked to the European Framework for Research Careers.

Seven invited high-level speakers from different European research or funding institutions will evidence benefits and impact, showcase improved training opportunities, career development and talents and skills management in their respective institutions.

Deep-Science, Deep-Tech, Deep-Mind

31 January 2019, Brussels, Belgium

While legislative negotiations on Horizon Europe are under way in the European Parliament and the EU Council, the proposal presented by the European Commission entrusts the Strategic Planning process with the definition and implementation of the most significant novelties of the next Framework Programme (i.e. intervention areas, R&I Missions, new EU R&I Partnerships, EIC).

Could the prospected tools and ecosystems under Horizon Europe (EIC, Pathfinder and Accelerator, EIT) move strategically forward the positioning of emerging technologies into a systemic perspective?

How will innovation ecosystems contribute to such process?

By bringing together in a high-level round table the most relevant representatives of the European S&T community and decision makers, we aim to explore possible options on how to systematically streamline collaborative breakthrough deep-science, deep-mind, deep-tech into a systemic innovation ecosystem cutting across the next Framework Programme for R&I (Horizon Europe).
