Let’s shape our FOODure

19 December 2017, Brussels, Belgium

In line with the current policy initiatives, where the development of food authenticity and safety systems is among the priorities of FOOD 2030 and helps to support some targets of the SDGs 2, 3 and 12, the proposed workshop, as final open event of the PRO-METROFOOD project, is an opportunity to discuss how the metrological tools could effectively strengthen the agrofood sector and the role of METROFOOD-RI in designing and implementing future scenarios of food traceability in Europe.

Symposium: Measuring Biodiversity and Extinction, Present and Past

7 January 2018, San Francisco, USA

This symposium marks a knowledge transfer event at the conclusion of a Marie Curie Global Fellowship experience for the organiser, Dr Julia Sigwart (Director, Queen's University Belfast, Marine Laboratory, UK).

Changing biodiversity is a major concern for all biologists. Anthropogenic changes to our planet are decreasing species diversity through the negative impacts of pollution, habitat destruction, direct extirpation of species, and climate change.

Mass extinction events (and subsequent recoveries) have happened before in Earth’s history, and these provide important context to understand ecological responses to modern environmental change.

The work of assessing biodiversity is woven into ecology, environmental science, conservation, phylogenetics, evo-devo, and many other disciplines; yet, ultimately the way we measure species diversity depends on taxonomy and systematics.

The aspiration of this symposium, and complementary contributed talks, is to promote better understanding of our common goals and encourage future interdisciplinary discussion on biodiversity dynamics.

The symposium will bring together a diverse group of speakers to confront several important themes:

1. How can biologists best respond to the urgent need to identify and conserve diversity?

2. Where are the major gaps in knowledge about the diversity of living animal groups, and what are the implications for understanding potential diversity loss?

3. How can we effectively use the fossil record of past diversity and extinction to understand current biodiversity loss?

European Battery Cell R&I Workshop

11-12 January 2018, Albert Borschette Congress Center (CCAB) - Rue Froissart 36, 1040 Brussels

The European Commission, DG Research and Innovation, is pleased to announce the "European Battery Cell R&I Workshop", that will be held in Brussels on Thursday 11th  and Friday 12th  January 2018. In the context of "EU Batteries Alliance", an extra budget of € 100 million has become available to finance new topics on batteries to be included in the Horizon 2020 Work Programme for 2019 and 2020.

This workshop is a great opportunity to set short and medium term priorities by discussing the possible topics descriptions for next generation batteries research. On January 11th in the afternoon, plenary speakers will grasp the state of the art in battery cell R&I and further identify the progresses and challenges in battery cell R&I. On January 12th, in-depth discussions will shed light in the possible topics and provide implications for short-to-medium term strategy on battery cell R&I. Please refer to the discussion paper for the outline of the discussions.

Gathering wide range of stakeholders including research organisations, cell manufacturers, material suppliers, OEMs, battery pack/module suppliers and national organisations, this workshop provides an invaluable opportunity to discover latest developments and shape the future of European battery cell R&I.

We look forward to welcoming you in Brussels.

For further questions contact: RTD-BATTERIES-WORKSHOP@ec.europa.eu


* Please note that on 10th January another workshop is organised by DG CNECT on batteries research. The objective of this workshop is to explore the long term challenges and emerging next generations of battery technologies for energy storage that could eventually be addressed by a large scale EU R&I initiative under the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme. For more information about that workshop, please contact CNECT-FLAGSHIPS-EVENT@ec.europa.eu

Tour d'Europe

15-16 January 2018, Vienna, Austria

In autumn 2017 and winter 2018, the RISE (Research, Innovation, Science Experts) group of advisors to Commissioner for Research, Science & Innovation, Carlos Moedas, are touring European capitals to meet with independent experts and think tanks in the field of research and innovation.


The Tour d’Europe takes place in the context of President Juncker' initiative of a wide and open reflection on the future direction of the European project.


The RISE Tour d’Europe will focus on the field of research and innovation and its role in wider European policy. This involves a dialogue between the RISE group and independent think tanks, not directly connected to national administrations. The participants will be policy advisers, economists, academics, and intellectuals.


The RISE group will use the tour to present the findings of their report “Europe’s future: Open Innovation, Open Science, Open to the World”. The national hosts will put forward the main economic and policy perspectives of their country.


A final report on Opening R&I for EU’s future will be presented after the end of the tour in mid-2018.

 

The Vienna event is co-hosted by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) and the Austrian Institute of Technology.
