Sustainable Intelligent Manufacturing
26-29 June 2013, Lisbon
The International Conference on Sustainable Intelligent Manufacturing aims at providing a major international forum for academics, researchers and industrial partners, from different backgrounds like engineering, architecture, design and economics, to exchange ideas in the field of sustainable intelligent manufacturing and related topics, to foster networking and collaboration among participants advancing knowledge and identifying major trends in the field.
Model cities are moving forward towards novel ecosystems, combining environmental, social and economic issues in more inclusive and integrated frameworks.
Sustainable intelligent manufacturing is regarded as a manufacturing paradigm for the 21st century, towards the next generation of manufacturing and processing technologies.
New business opportunities are emerging as sustainability has become a key concern for government policies, businesses and general public.
ENSEA Networking Event
25 June 2013, Brussels
To reach the “20-20-20” climate goals, Europe is increasingly generating renewable energy through technologies such as solar panels and wind turbines. Renewable resources are, however, dependent on weather patterns and therefore generate variable amounts of power over time. In order to provide secure energy systems which delivers energy when we need it, renewables have to be used in conjunction with ‘back up’ power sources, which can ramp up generation quickly to meet peak demands, while managing demand by using smart grids and by hydro-based balancing services. Goal of the ENSEA Networking Event is to introduce the project to an European audience, exchange with other Regions of Knowledge (energy) projects and to connect to other European funds.
Nano and advanced materials for cultural heritage
21 June 2013, Brussels
A clustering meeting dedicated to FP7 projects dealing with nano and advanced materials for cultural heritage is taking place on 21 June 2013. The event will involve six projects: HEROMAT, IMAT, NANOFORART, NANOMATCH, PANNA and ROCARE
The purpose of the meeting is to foster collaboration and synergies among these projects. A special focus will be put on SMEs-related issues and on the exploitation and commercialisation of results.
The meeting is taking place in the MADOU Auditorium, Place Madou 1, B-1210 Brussels.
18-20 June 2013, Dublin
EuroNanoForum 2013 focuses on the commercialisation of nanotechnologies, exploiting its potential for new applications and taking them further from enabling technologies to end products. It will also introduce the industry to new innovations for growth opportunities.
With Horizon2020 beginning in 2014, the conference will also show how nanotechnologies fit into the new structure within Europe’s key priority areas of excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges.
4th AEBIOM Bioenergy Conference
17-19 June 2013, Brussels
The AEBIOM Bioenergy Conference organized by the European Biomass Association is the forth edition of the growing series. The annual conference has grown ever since its first edition in 2010 and has quickly become Europe´s major occasion for discussion and networking amongst important industry leaders and policy makers. Bioenergy is the largest renewable energy source in Europe and we expect around 300 industry representatives to be present at this event which is one of the leading bioenergy conferences in Europe.
The 4th edition will be co-organized with the European Pellet Council, the Industrial European Pellet Suppliers and the European Biogas Association and it is organized in association with the Irish presidency of the Council of the EU.
