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.

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".

FORMAT Final Conference: Driving Innovation in Industrial Processes by Technology Forecasting

14-15 May 2015, Milan, Italy

Forecasting technological advancements in industrial processes is a key factor for developing innovation projects and an excellent tool supporting decision makers when it comes to investments, directing research visions and carrying out innovation strategies. This is the aim and achievements of the European FORMAT Project: FOrecast and Roadmapping for Manufacturing Technologies.

Politecnico di Milano invites you to a two-day conference in technology forecasting in the consortium of Whirlpool Europe, Wroclaw University of Technology, PNO Consultants and Innovation Engineering and within the Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) - Marie Curie Actions. Invited speakers from academia and industry in addition to FORMAT consortium researchers, engineers and consultants are going to present talks of technology forecasting. In addition, FORMAT team members will disseminate the latest advancement in the project and practical case-studies for forecasting industrial processes in a multinational company and SMEs.

The conference coexists with the Expo Milan 2015. Participation is free. Please reserve your seat by registering.

Physical activity and sedentary behaviour, surveillance and assessment

14 May 2015, Milan, Italy

Physical inactivity and sedentary behaviours are closely linked to food intake and dietary behaviour and are linked to many non-communicable diseases. Food intake should therefore almost always be considered in relation to physical activity and sedentary behaviour.

This workshop is organised by the DEDIPAC EU- financed project. It will look at the state of the art in surveillance in this field, the views of the World Health Organisation and the industry, and the international children accelerometer database.

DEDIPAC is the first knowledge hub to receive funding from This workshop is one of the EU Research and Innovation events addressing global food security and nutrition at Expo Milano 2015.

Tackling obesity via EU-funded R&D

14 May 2015, Milan, Italy

In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults were overweight; of these, over 600 million were obese (source: World Health Organisation). This workshop will give an overview of the obesity research that the EU is currently funding.

Obesity prevention is a complex issue, and can be tackled from different angles, such as understanding the dietary needs of specific target groups, promoting healthy diets or creating new foods. The seven EU projects presented at this workshop (EarlyNutrition, SATIN, I.Family, PREDIMED Plus, PREVIEW, Food4Me, NUDGE-IT) are investigating different approaches to combating the obesity epidemic.

This conference is one of the EU Research and Innovation events addressing global food security and nutrition at Expo Milano 2015
