Blue innovation: Oceans to feed the planet - Round table

27 February 2018, Brussels

This Round Table organised by the Science Business Network aims to once more bring the importance of Oceans in the food chain up to discussion.

''The over-exploitation of lands has shown its limits. In the meantime, oceans reveal more and more resources. How can research and innovation unlock this vital potential?''

Science|Business will bring together its members and experts to discuss the importance of marine research to face the growing global demand for food and transform the food chain.

Featured speakers are:

  • Pearl Dykstra - Deputy Chair, Scientific Advice Mechanism, High Level Group
  • Poul Holm - Chair, SAPEA Social Sciences and Humanities Working Group on Food from the Oceans
  • Ricardo Serrão Santos - Member, European Parliament

 

 


Towards a European approach on Industrial Infrastructures for Research and Innovation"

1 March 2018

Access to new technology and products testing and validation infrastructures, including regulatory compliance services, is essential to accelerate the technology transfer and access to emerging markets. But investment and maintenance costs of such infrastructures, in most cases, is high. SMEs, industrial start-ups, as well as traditional system suppliers, cannot afford these costs but need access to existing infrastructures. Industrial Infrastructures for Research and Innovation target primarily industry, SMEs in particular, and provide access to technologies and services for TRLs further up in the research and innovation value chain (from TRL 4 to 7).

The workshop aims mainly at discussing about the future role of Industrial Infrastructures for Research and Innovation.

The following specific issues will be addressed:

  • Industry needs from Industrial Research and Innovation infrastructures will be discussed from the different types of potential users.
  • General overview about already existing initiatives
  • Visibility: Industry requirements for developing the use of such industry infrastructures for open up and support full accessibility

Expressions of interest to participate in the workshop can be sent to Maria.MORAGUES-CANOVAS@ec.europa.eu.

Info Session on the International Resource Panel

2 March 2018, DG RTD – CDMA - Atrium (-1)

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), now known as UN Environment, launched the International Resource Panel (IRP) in 2007 with the mandate to build and share a sound knowledge base on sustainable global resource use. The Panel’s goal is to steer the transition from overconsumption, waste and environmental degradation to a more prosperous and sustainable future. This Info Session will illustrate the work of the IRP in the context of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a focus on sustainable economic growth and innovation. The session will be an opportunity to explore how the scientific knowledge of the IRP could feed into the work of DG RTD and more generally support EU policy-making.

Project launch event: Reducing Energy Dependency in Atlantic area Water Networks

2 March 2018, SAINT-PAIR SUR MER, Normandy, France

The water industry is the 4th most energy intensive sector in the Atlantic area, responsible for significant contributions to climate change and reductions in competitiveness due to the associated costs.

REDAWN aims to improve the energy efficiency of water networks through the installation of innovative micro-hydropower technology. This technology will recover wasted energy in existing pipe networks across irrigation, public water supply, process industry, and waste-water network settings.

This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme.

COST Connect - Quantum: Where will the next jump go?

8 March 2018, Warsaw, Poland

“Quantum: Where will the next jump go?” will be an open space for participants to discuss the importance of quantum technology and research.

With increasing global interest in exploiting quantum technologies, the COST Connect event will provide networking opportunities that link active researchers with representatives from the Quantum sector and EU stakeholders.

The COST Connect Event “Quantum: Where will the next jump go?" will be a highly interactive event that will bring together stakeholders working within the Quantum Science field. The event will provide best support to priorities identified by the different participants and will help to: 

- Support the cooperation of COST Actions' stakeholders working in the area of Quantum Science and Technology. 

- Fight against dispersion of resources and fragmentation of research activities 

- Promote synergies with activities funded through other EU programmes 

- Promote joint activities including propositions for H2020 (flagships) open calls 

- Promote networking for relevant partnerships 

- Improve the involvement of young researchers, female researchers and scientists working in countries which are currently underrepresented in the topic.

The event is by invitation. Further information about this COST Connect event can be requested via Cost.Connect5@cost.eu from Ralph Stübner, Fatima Bouchama, Lucia Forzi, COST Science Officers, and Elke Dall, COST Policy
