HBP School - The Brain Simulation Platform of the Human Brain Project
17-21 September 2018, Palermo, Italy
This school will introduce participants to the Brain Simulation Platform (BSP) of the Human Brain Project (HBP), with the main aim to train users on how to exploit the possibilities offered by the platform to implement cellular level computational models, to use high performance analytics and computing platform systems to configure and run a simulation, and to visualise/analyse the results.
Both short lectures and longer afternoon activities will be delivered at a basic and intermediate level. Through tutorials and hands-on activities, attendees will learn how to interact with the BSP to carry out their own research, to set up and manage a data-driven collaborative project, or to use the BSP to interact with the HBP Neuroinformatics Platform.
Participants will be encouraged to introduce new ideas and suggest ways to use their original experimental data/techniques to implement/use the multiscale neural model they would like to investigate.
18-21 September 2018, Berlin, Germany
InnoTrans is the leading international trade fair for transport technology and takes places every two years in Berlin. The InnoTrans Convention, the event’s top-level supporting programme, complements the trade fair.
A unique feature of InnoTrans is its outdoor and track display area, where everything from tank wagons to high-speed trains are displayed on 3 500 metres of track.
Since 2016 InnoTrans offers vehicle manufacturers the possibility to demonstrate busses on a static display area and the adjacent Demonstration Course.
Solar thermal conference: the impact of EU R&D funding / A 20 year perspective on EU R&D funding for solar thermal energy
24 September 2018, Brussels, Belgium
A conference on solar renewable energy will take place in Brussels on 24 September 2018. The event will provide insights into the impacts of R&D funded through the EU Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation; including providing access to the solar thermal Renewable Energy R&D Impact Report and an opportunity to influence the recommendations to increase future R&D impacts. During the workshop key industry experts, including ESTELA, Solar Heat Europe / ESTIF, Tecnalia, and AEE - Institute for Sustainable Technologies, will share their insights on the future of solar thermal technologies. There will be opportunities to discuss how to increase the impacts of your own research projects.
European Health Challenges: The role of imaging technology in addressing key biomedical questions of the future
25 September 2018, Brussels, Belgium
The White Rose Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York are home to some of the top European Centres in Advanced Imaging and Microscopy studying at a macromolecular level the impact of disease on individual cells, using a wealth of first class equipment to conduct world leading biological research.
Hear our panel of experts present their cutting edge research on the use of advanced imaging in the design of new medicines for the future. For the first time, imaging at near atomic level produces amazing pictures of cells actively dividing, incredible detail of organ damage eg to the lungs and investigation of how cells behave when attacked by a virus.

STARTS Talk: Human Agency In The Robotic World, lecture by Alexander Mankowsky
19 September 2018, Brussels, Belgium
How is artificial intelligence (AI) influencing tomorrow's mobility solutions? How can the community be optimized by machine support and, above all, how does this affect people? These are the central questions discussed by Alexander Mankowsky, futurologist at the automotive company Daimler.
Under the title 'Human Agency In A Robotic World', Mankowsky will discuss the design requirements needed to retain or enhance human agency when dealing with devices, using the autonomous car as an example.
Within the frame of the EC initiative 'STARTS', this event is organised by Gluon in collaboration with BOZAR lab. Entry tickets on sale as indicated at BOZAR's web-site.
Bad plastics, good plastics: Can PHA from wastewater reverse the trend?
18 September 2018, Webinar
Join our webinar on 18 Sept. 2018, 17.00-18.00 CET.
The INCOVER project invites experts in the area of bio-plastics to critically examine the market available for PHAs produced from wastewater. Some of the questions addressed will be:
- Which uses and markets exist for PHAs produced from wastewater treatment plants?
- What would trigger the uptake of wastewater-based PHAs by the market?
- How can sustainability and affordability come together to make this possible?
