euRathlon/SHERPA Summer School 2015
31 May - 5 June 2015, Oulu, Finland
The euRathlon/SHERPA Summer School 2015 has been designed as a five-day course to provide participants with a full overview and hands-on experience with multi-domain real robotic systems. The intended audience is undergraduate students, Master students, PhD students, postdoc students, researchers from universities/organizations and engineers from industry companies around the world.
The summer school will provide an opportunity for attendees to deepen their understanding of outdoor autonomous robotics, to share ideas and experiences, and also to prepare themselves for euRathlon competitions. Participants also will be encouraged to join in new teams for participating in euRathlon 2015 Challenge where ground, underwater and aerial robots will have to cooperate in order to perform a series of tasks in scenarios inspired on the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
We welcome papers from non-competitors, if they are within the scope. We encourage especially young researchers to participate. There will be the possibility to earn study credits (doctoral or basic) from the summer school. Students enrolled in EU Universities, EU Research Centres or EU Companies have the possibility of getting travel support.

23rd Biomass Conference and Exhibition
1-4 June 2015, Vienna, Austria
Join us in Vienna for the 23rd European Biomass Conference and Exhibition, the leading international platform for dialogue between research, industry, policy and the business of biomass. The high quality of the EU BC&E stems from combining one of the largest biomass science and technology conferences with a leading biomass industry and technology exhibition, attracting the entire professional biomass community from around the globe.
The EU BC&E is supported by European and international organizations such as the European Commission, UNESCO - United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Natural Sciences Sector, EUBIA - the European Biomass Industry Association, WCRE - the World Council for Renewable Energy and further organisations. The Technical Programme is coordinated by the European Commission, Joint Research Centre.
Take this opportunity to present your latest results to specialists and decision makers from around the world and submit your abstract by 27 October 2014.
Our world, our dignity, our future - European Development Days
3-4 June 2015
2015 is the European Year for Development and European Development Days will be its flagship event.
Each individual and every policy have a role to play for a more sustainable and peaceful world. In 2015, we want to tell stories from around the world to show that regardless of where we come from or where we want to go, our aspirations remain the same. We strive for a stable and peaceful world, education for our children, jobs for young people and a decent life on a planet, of which we need to take a better care.
This year, participants will address issues such as the conditions for creating sustainable growth, the promotion of universal and fundamental rights, or how greater cooperation among all actors can help to eradicate poverty and reduce inequality. On this regard, participants will be invited to debate, solve (brainstorm) and share best practices.
The focus for EDD15 echoes the motto of the European Year for Development - ‘Our world, our dignity, our future’.
The NOPOOR project will be presenting a LAB SESSION entitled " Research for change: New knowledge for poverty eradication".
The FOODSECURE project will also be presenting a LAB SESSION entitled "Visions ofthe youth for achieving global food and nutrition security".

Conference on Complex Networks and Climate Variability
11-12 April 2015, Vienna
The complex network paradigm is a fruitful tool for understanding complex systems in various areas of science. Over the last years, the research field of ‘Climate Networks’ (i.e., the application of complex network tools to climate science) has produced many novel results that have improved our understanding of complex climate phenomena.
These range from predicting the El Nino/Southern Oscillation, seasonal changes in the monsoon regions, early warning indicators of climate transitions and descriptions of ocean circulation coherence. In addition, many new tools and theoretical results have been generated which facilitate the network analysis and the interpretation of the results as applied to climate data.
The conference will be held in Vienna (Hotel Mercure Wien City), the weekend just before the European Geosciences Union 2015 General Assembly.
ERA-Can+ Webinar for Europeans on programs by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
9 April 2015, Ottawa, Canada
This live webinar is about research opportunities for Europeans to participate in programs offered by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. The webinar is open to European researchers, research managers, and representatives from universities, colleges, government agencies and the private sector.
Canada’s Public Policy Forum and the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada will host a webinar to introduce the ERA-Can+ project and Horizon 2020. The second part of the webinar will feature the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and explore its research opportunities open to Europeans.
CHAIN-REDS Conference: “Open Science at the Global Scale"
31 March 2015, Brussels
The CHAIN-REDS project partners are proud to announce the “Open Science at the Global Scale: Sharing e-Infrastructures, Sharing Knowledge, Sharing Progress” Conference to be held in Brussels on March 31, 2015 at Marivaux Hotel. This major event in the field of e-Infrastructures for Research and Education is organised by the CHAIN-REDS project, under the aegis of the European Commission (DG CONNECT).
The conference aims at bringing together policy-makers and research stakeholders from all the regions targeted by the project (Asia, Africa, MENA, Europe and Latin America) to discuss major developments and perspectives in the field of global e-Infrastructures for Research and Education. The CHAIN-REDS main outcomes will be presented on this occasion. The Conference will feature the following plenary sessions: - A high-level policy session bringing together policy-makers from Asia, Africa, MENA and Latin America who will testify on the benefits of e-Infrastructures for Research and Education and who will share their vision on long-term global collaboration - Two end-user oriented sessions with focus on the impacting CHAIN-REDS-supported solutions in five regions of the world as well as on the project’s vision on further technological cooperation needed by global virtual research communities The “Open Science at the Global Scale: Sharing e-Infrastructures, Sharing Knowledge, Sharing Progress” Conference will represent a unique opportunity to gain an insight on the status and perspectives of global e-Infrastructures for Research and Education and to network with peers and key stakeholders in the field (private/public bodies).
