Women In Science - How To Increase Women´s Participation In Science?

21 November 2017, Brussels, Belgium

The main aim of the event is to discuss women´s participation in science and research and main challenges facing female scientists.

The conference will bring together scientists, policy makers and experts to discuss conditions for women in science and the key factors behind the low representation of women in leading positions and within some scientific domains and fields of study.

The conference will consist of two parts. Despite the fact that women represent half of the population, their representation in science, research and innovation lag behind. Nevertheless, a number of international organizations and European institutions have paid attention to gender equality in science, empowerment of female scientists and better use of their educational and intellectual potential.

Thanks to these efforts and visibility of the topic, gender equality has become a theme of political and expert discussion. Yet at the same time, neither of these efforts has ensured equal representation of women in leading positions and within some scientific domains and fields of study.

COFFERS meets FairTax: Joint Perspectives on Fair and Sustainable Taxation

21 November 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Open research seminar "COFFERS meets FairTax: Joint Perspectives on Fair and Sustainable Taxation" is organized by the FairTax and COFFERS, the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the EU, the Czech Liaison Office for Research, Development and Innovation and the Representation of the South Moravian Region to the EU.

The European Union confronts increasing and persistent inequalities in income, wealth and opportunity and between generations, gender and regions. One common underlying factor is deficiencies in fiscal systems.

Horizon 2020 project FairTax tries to find answers how fair and sustainable taxation and social policy reforms can increase the economic stability of EU Member States. Horizon 2020 project COFFERS identifies deficiencies and opportunities for upgrading in tax law, tax policy development, tax administration and enforcement.

European Universities in the Energy Transition: Towards a Clean Energy Future

23-24 October 2017, Brussels, Belgium

From 23 to 24 October 2017, the European University Association (EUA) in collaboration with InnoEnergy, organise the 6th UNI-SET Energy Clustering Event (ECE).

The event “European Universities in the Energy Transition: Towards a Clean Energy Future” will take place at the Flemish Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. The event will be the sixth “Energy Clustering Event" and targets European policymakers, stakeholders and university leaders, providing a platform for dialogue on the current and future role of universities at the interface of Europe’s energy research and higher education policies.

So far, 500 participants joined the events and discussions of the UNI-SET project and more than 200 European universities from 30 countries provided information in the European Atlas of Universities in Energy Research and Education.

The conference will include the presentation of a forthcoming report entitled “Identifying New Paradigms in Energy Education and Research: An Action Agenda for Europe’s Universities”. The report will provide recommendations for universities, companies and policymakers for the design of energy education and research activities with the aim to address the skills gap between higher education provision and needs of the business sector for the energy transition.

The conference will highlight the contribution and mobilisation of universities towards the goals of the Energy Union and the SET-Plan and discuss how the momentum could be enhanced in the following years, following the publication of the 2016 Roadmap for European Universities in Energy.

It will also be an opportunity to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan and debate how the future European Framework Programme (FP9) can support the linkage of research, innovation and education objectives in the field of energy.
