2 June 2017, Leuven, Belgium

From 31 May to 2 June 2017, KU Leuven (Belgium) hosts the 5th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE) on the SET-Plan Core Priority “N°1 in Renewable Energy”.

The event intends to stimulate discussion among university leaders on the development of innovative and multidisciplinary research and education programmes.

The conference will also offer specific opportunities for “clustering” knowledge, in which research and education leaders from different disciplines will present their views on the specific priorities of the SET-Plan.

The event is the fifth of the series of six events aiming to mobilise Europe’s university community in the field of energy. It carries forward the activities outlined in the “Roadmap for European Universities in Energy” published in December 2016.

Through the event, participants will also have the opportunity to engage in discussions for new paradigms in energy higher education and research in the specific field of renewables integration.

EUA and the UNI-SET consortium have launched a Call for Contributions welcoming proposals for parallel sessions in form of good practices and initiatives (download the Call for Contributions on the event`s website).

Circular Economy in Visegrad Group (V4) Countries - current state and challenges

1 June 2017, Brussels, Belgium

A circular economy is an industrial system that replaces the ‘end-of-life’ concept with restoration, shifts towards the use of renewable energy, eliminates the use of toxic chemicals, which impair reuse, and aims for the elimination of waste through the superior design of materials, products, systems, and, within this, business models.

The elements of circular economy include: - waste management, - a strict differentiation between consumable and durable components of a product, replacement the concept of a consumer with that of a user, - energy efficiency.

A circular economy requires improvements in material selection and product design (circular design), innovative business models, increase in general awareness and creation the skill base. A transition towards circular economy will therefore generate new jobs, increase productivity and will boost R&I activities.

The latter may be treated as a circular economy enablers. The European Commission adopted an ambitious Circular Economy Package that establishes a concrete and ambitious programme of action, with measures covering the whole cycle: from production and consumption to waste management and the market for secondary raw materials.

For all V4 countries implementation of a circular economy is a chance for a faster economic growth respecting sustainability principle and taking into account social needs. The aim of the event is to share experience of V4 countries in implementation of circular economy, presentation of the best practices in this field including social innovation and discussion of main challenges.

Cities for Food Systems Innovation and Green Jobs

31 May 2017, European Commission - DG Research and Innovation, Covent Garden, Place Rogier 16, 1210 Brussels




This full day FOOD 2030 workshop will provide an opportunity to explore the role of cities in fostering food systems innovation and green jobs at the local level.  The main objectives of the event are to discuss and share experiences related to 1) the importance of adopting a systems approach for sustainable and healthy food production and consumption in urban areas, 2) the potential for green job creation, and 3) future research, innovation and investment opportunities.

During the event, preliminary results of an ongoing European study focusing on ‘Food in Cities’ will be presented and used as a basis for interactive discussions. Participants will discuss the added value and challenges that 'cities' face – both as place-based ecosystems and local authorities - in enabling broad-based innovation, green jobs and the empowerment of communities.

Targeted stakeholders for this workshop include city representatives, researchers, SMEs, entrepreneurs, living labs, NGOs and civil society associations.

The workshop is part of the FOOD 2030 initiative that focuses on future-proofing our food systems through European Research and Innovation for Food and Nutrition Security.
