Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) have emerged as a new, high-potential material class. The workshop brings together experts from academia and industry with a focus on application and formulation in gas purification, separation and toxic gas treatment of MOFs. In addition to a survey of the state of the art, the workshop focuses on new innovative processes.

Prior to the Zeppelin Campaign of the EU-funded research project PEGASOS, a workshop for journalists is held at ZLT Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 17 November 2011.
In spring 2012, scientists of the EU-funded PEGASOS project will embark on a Europe-wide
research mission with a Zeppelin NT airship. The aim is to explore relationships between atmospheric chemistry and climate change. In 2012, measurement flights will take the research team to the Netherlands and then on to Italy. In 2013, the north-bound flight leads from Friedrichshafen, Germany, to Finland.
The scientists are currently carrying out a trial campaign to test different cabin layouts and measuring instruments for different experiments on the ground and in the air. During the workshop, journalists will have the opportunity to speak to the researchers about the campaign and the measuring techniques, and to see the equipment and how it is installed in the Zeppelin.

The EU HYMAR project is developing practical solutions to the many problems associated with producing an efficient and effective hybrid marine propulsion system. The project has completed a comprehensive series of on-the-water tests, collecting a unique set of objective data about the true performance of conventional and hybrid propulsion systems.
As participants in a publicly funded project, the HYMAR team want to share as much of their experience as possible. ICOMIA’s first hybrid marine propulsion conference is the ideal platform for us to do this.

Knowledge and innovation are key drivers for sustainable growth and prosperity in Europe. Extensive research has demonstrated that the quality of research and development benefits significantly from adding gender as a critical success factor. The first European Gender Summit will network key players from all sectors to initiate the much-needed changes in the culture of research and innovation.
Joint discussions will produce the first ever collective agreement on policy development on gender for innovation, the policy manifesto on "Integrated Action on the Gender Dimension in Research."
