The Bioeconomy – Food, Wellbeing  and Environment - Bridging science and industry by knowledge transfer

Stanhope Hotel - 9, rue de commerce / 4, Square de Meeûs, 1040 Brussels

Event Description:  Food, agriculture and bio economy (FAB) are of raising concern for the EU. The 1st FAB/FCI – Forum on “The Bio economy – Food, Wellbeing  and Environment - Bridging science and industry by knowledge transfer” adapts these topics and focuses on strengthening the European bio economy and  industry by knowledge transfer adequate to the requirements of industrial stakeholders. The 1st FAB Industry Forum will take place 11-12th October in Brussels and will focus on bridging science and industry by knowledge transfer, with participation of high-profile scientists, EU Commission, MEPs, Food Industry, SME associations and project coordinators.

Specific themes include nutrition and well-being, environment and technology transfer of innovative solutions in bio economy. The first day will be on “outlooks for bio economy research” while the second day will deal with “capacities in the sector – SME participation and communication of research results”. The event will be held during the Brussels-based OPEN DAYS (8-11 October 2012).

The Forum is supported by the European Union`s 7th Framework Research Programme and it is organised by the CommNet network, communicating the bio economy, together with the Food Cluster Initiative, which joins regional food and bio-projects in the European Research Area.

Speakers:  European Commission, MEPs, Industry, SME’s associations, project coordinators  and knowledge transfer experts.

4th European Innovation Summit “Building bridges - Creating Synergies”

9-10 October 2012, European Parliament, Brussels

Knowledge4Innovation will be organising the 4th European Innovation Summit in the European Parliament in Brussels. Under the motto “Building bridges – Creating Synergies”, this year’s debates relate to policies relevant for innovation and that are currently under review by the European Parliament, including Horizon2020, Cohesion Policy, COSME and the MFF.

The summit features an opening reception with the Innovation Commissioner Geoghegan-Quinn, several thematic sessions throughout two days, breakfasts, lunches and dinner debates, as well as an exhibition in one of the most visible locations of the European Parliament. In addition, the “Innovative Europe Reality Check” provides an opportunity for innovation practitioners to describe online their major challenges and express ideas on how to improve the framework conditions for innovation.

Workshop: Smart specialisation strategies from a research and innovation perspective in maritime regions

9 October 2012, Brussels

Smart specialisation is a key concept for research and innovation policy. The concept still needs better illustration through success stories in the field and can benefit from a large exchange of experience. The objective of the workshop is to highlight, through good examples, how research and innovation can strongly contribute to successful smart specialisation from a regional perspective, on the basis of a specific field.

The recently adopted Atlantic integrated macro-regional strategy is a major opportunity for a ‘maritime smart specialisation’ process at regional level. It is of high political relevance in the context of the debate on support to be given to future ‘macro-regions’ as of 2014. It would enlarge the involvement of maritime regions beyond the well-known ‘Baltic Sea Strategy’.


3rd Generation PV cells, Cluster3 Meeting & Ephocell: Luminescent Solar Concentrators Workshop

2-3 October 2012, Barcelona, Spain

The main goals of the first day of the workshop is to give a complete overview of the entire portfolio of projects on photovoltaics (PV) in the NMP, Energy and ICT programmes through the FP7 and to make key recommendations on future research needs in the PV domain for the set-up of a nanotechnology roadmap to foster the development of PV in Europe.

The second day, Ephocell consortium presents the progresses on Up Conversion and Down Shifting Luminescent Solar Concentrators. The technology developed into Ephocell project is applied for enhancing the performance of third generation PV cells.
