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".

Tenancy Law and Housing Policy in Multi-level Europe - TENLaw project meeting
8-9 May 2015, Tartu, Estonia
Private tenancy law is existentially affecting the daily lives of European citizens, as about one third of them depend on rental housing.
That notwithstanding, it constitutes a nearly blank space in comparative and European law. This is due to its national character, its political nature and its embeddedness in widely diverging national housing policies, which ultimately reflect different welfare state models. At the same time, however, different parts of EU law and policy do affect tenancy law significantly, albeit indirectly. Thus, EU social policy against poverty and social exclusion extends to selected issues of housing policy.
Against this background, this project sets out to provide the first large-scale comparative and European law survey of tenancy law. In a first step, it analyses national tenancy laws and their embeddedness in, and effects on, national housing policies and markets. In a second step, the effect of EU legislation on national housing policy in general and national
tenancy law in particular will be analysed in a comparative perspective. In a third step, a proposal for a better co-ordinating role of the EU in tenancy law and housing policy, in particular through an OMC process developing common principles of good ”tenancy regulation”, will be designed.
2nd International Conference on Renewable Energy Gas Technology, REGATEC 2015
7-8 May 2015, Barcelona, Spain
REGATEC 2015 has a technical and industrial focus and is directed towards microbial and thermochemical conversion of biomass and waste to biomethane, Power-to-gas and biomass gasification for CHP production. REGATEC includes plenary and parallel sessions, a poster session, an exhibition and excellent opportunities to network and find new collaboration and business partners. The latest advances will be presented by leading experts and experiences of unique industrial scale plants will be presented by prominent industrial representatives.

Key Enabling Technologies for Regional Growth: synergies between Horizon 2020 and ESIF
6 May 2015, Committee of the Regions, Brussels
The workshop aims to encourage active dialogue and exchange of ideas between the Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) -H2020 stakeholders and the national/regional authorities that apply for structural funds, and :
1) Raise awareness on KETs (advanced materials, nanotechnology, micro- and nano-electronics, industrial biotechnology, photonics, and advanced manufacturing systems) as drivers for industrial competitiveness in regions. 2) Stimulate interaction to enhance synergies, by engaging participants in discussions during the parallel sessions. 3) Showcase examples of regions that have identified KETs as priorities and promote interregional cooperation. 4) Explore how the new instruments help deal with current problems and limitations; 5) Identify the main barriers for addressing synergies from part of H2020 stakeholders and national and regional authorities.
