25-29 July 2016, Barcelona, Spain
The 1st Conference on Social Impact of Science (SIS2016) will provide a framework where research groups from diverse contexts and domains will be able to discuss these existing good practices, as well as the processes for further improvement and innovation.
Furthermore, SIS2016 will generate new bonds between the different actors involved in this initiative including researchers, scientific agencies, science stakeholders and civil society
Analysing, communicating and improving social impact is one of the most pressing demands to all scientific fields.
Most research groups are willing to assume this task, which is still very difficult due to the lack of indicators, repositories and experiences. Nevertheless, there are some scientific domains where significant steps have been already taken.
There are also some countries where universities and science agencies are very advanced in the construction of these indicators.

21-25 August 2016, Hinxton, Cambridge, United Kingdom
This is a uniquely fascinating time in human genetics and genomics, as the field moves beyond the cataloguing of associated variation towards fundamental biological inference and translational implementation.
The programme will cover a range of topics including our current understanding of the genomics of rare and complex human diseases. There will be sessions addressing gene regulation and functional analysis.
The latest advances in sequencing technology and the future of whole genome and clinical sequencing will also be discussed. The schedule is highly interactive with presentations by the tutors and students on cutting-edge topics in human genomics.
The summer school is more akin to a ‘science summer camp’ for graduate students with discussions and debates on the future of human genomics. A unique feature is the one-to-one mentoring on all aspects of genomics, including advice on publishing and pursuing an academic research career.
22-24 August 2016, New Orleans, USA
The International Conference on Polymer Science and Engineering is to be held at New Orleans, USA during August 22-24, 2016 Organized by OMICS International conference series conferences.
It will bring together world-class professors and scientists across the world to discuss about the current developments that are taking place in the field of Polymer Science.
Polymer science and Engineering is designed in such a way to provide diverse and current research that will provide an in-depth analysis in that field.The International Conference on Polymer Science and Engineering is organized with a theme of revealing the advances and innovations in the field of Polymer science and Engineering .
18-21 April 2016, Warsaw (Poland)
Transport Research Arena (TRA) is the most important Transport research event in Europe, gathering every two years key stakeholders: researchers, experts, operators, industry and policy-makers.
#TRA2016 Conference will contribute to innovation in sustainable mobility for Europe, by bringing together all the stakeholders of the transport system. Efficient mobility is a key issue for policy makers. Enabling the free movement of people and goods is crucial to economic prosperity and quality of life.
The main theme of TRA 2016 is: MOVING FORWARD - Innovative Solutions for Tomorrow’s Mobility.
18-19 April 2016, Brussels
On 18 and 19 April, an EC workshop was held in Brussels to present the results of EU funded research & innovation projects in the field of the Energy-efficient Buildings Public-Public Private Partnership (EeB cPPP).
The aim was to present the impact achieved by the ongoing projects and to identify the ways to maximise the benefits of project clusters.
The presentations can be downloaded from this website.
The EU is funding the EeB cPPP to create a high-tech building industry that turns energy efficiency into a sustainable business. The projects aim at developing innovative technologies, systems and materials, to achieve higher levels of energy efficiency in Europe's built environment.
18 April 2016, Brussels
The European Fruit Juice Association and the PHBOTTLE consortium invites you to a half day workshop dedicated to discussing biopolymers and their use in food and non‐food packaging applications.
The EU-funded PHBOTTLE project set out to develop a new bottle made of PHB (Polyhydroxybutyrate) which was obtained from fermentation of wastewater from juice processing industries. The project was funded by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme.
The aim of this Workshop, apart from showing the project results, is to learn from other companies dealing with biopolymers, food and packaging, their developments and efforts on this field.
14-15 April 2016, Amsterdam
Borders blur. Disciplines merge. Barriers come down. The 21st century is a time of repositioning, and there is a key role to play for heritage. How do we (re)present ourselves, our public, our archives, our countries and our institutes?
This is the RICHES final conference, presenting the project results together with inspiring keynote speakers who will reflect and explore collaboratively future visions of heritage.
Participation will be central, with experience of inspiring examples first hand in the city of Amsterdam. Through urban safaris and visits to heritage sites, all conference participants will be able to see best practices in action, and policy recommendations will be delivered to support this.
