Join us at this event, which will bring together leaders in social innovation and business incubation, and other organisations including technology parks, universities and other science and research bodies.
Incubators for social innovation could accelerate the growth of small innovative businesses and enable experiments that are small and locally successful to be applied in other places across Europe, spreading good ideas and innovations. The Commission (Research and Innovation DG) will provide support for up to two transnational networks of incubators to facilitate the scaling up of social innovations from their local communities to higher geographical levels across Europe.
Please register via email: RTD-INCUBATORS-FOR-SOCIAL-INNOVATION@ec.europa.eu by 4 June 2012 by filling in and attaching the registration form below.
Due to space restrictions we can only accept a limited number of participants. Please refer to the email confirmation of your registration to determine whether or not you are registered for the event.

SAVE ME aims to develop a system that detects disaster events in public transport terminals/vehicles and critical infrastructures (i.e. tunnels and bridges) and supports quick and optimal mass evacuation guidance, to save lives, giving particular emphasis to the most vulnerable travellers.This workshop is intended to disseminate the key findings from the EU FP7 SAVE ME project and provide an open environment for a wider discussion about the major safety and security issues facing transportation today.

Loss of control in flight (LOC-I) is the leading cause of fatal accidents in commercial aviation today. In the course of loss of control events, the aircraft often enters into unusual attitudes or stalls, also called upsets. However, due to a lack of validated aircraft models outside the normal operating envelope, current flight simulators do not adequately represent aircraft behavior at the edge of the envelope.
The European FP-7 project SUPRA – Simulation of Upset Recovery in Aviation – has addressed this gap and will present the overall results of the project to various stakeholders and to discuss their usefulness for commercial pilot training.
