Argomarine : Final Event
21-22 November 2012, Isle of Elba, Italy
The ARGOMARINE project has developed and tested an integrated system for monitoring the marine traffic and pollution events due to carriers/commercial ships as well as recreational boats through environmental-sensitive sea areas.
At this final event the ARGOMARINE researchers will present the new developed strategies and technologies to ensure safety of navigation in the Mediterranean basin.
Re-Road final conference
13 November 2012, Brussels
The majority (90%) of European paved roads are paved with asphalt material. At the end of the service lifetime of a road, when the damaged road pavement can no longer fulfil its purpose as a comfortable carrier of traffic, it must be renewed. While asphalt is nearly 100% recyclable, the routine use of recycled asphalt in road construction projects can be as little as 10% in some European countries. The EU-funded Re-Road project has focused on innovative technologies and end of life strategies for asphalt road infrastructures.
This free-of-charge conference will be held in English and cover the following topics :

Scientific support for growth, jobs and sustainability: the example of the eco-industries
15 May 2012, Brussels
The European Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre, is holding a conference on "Scientific support for growth, jobs and sustainability: the example of the eco-industries". High level speakers from science and industry will discuss the main sectors concerned: water, air quality, waste, energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. The EU Commissioner for research, innovation and science, Màire Geoghegan-Quinn, will take part in the opening session.
Planet Under Pressure
25-29 March 2012, London, UK
Based on the latest scientific evidence, the London Planet Under Pressure conference will provide a comprehensive update of our knowledge of the Earth system and the pressure our planet is now under. The London conference will focus the scientific community’s and the wider world’s attention on climate, ecological degradation, human well-being, planetary thresholds, food security, energy, governance across scales and poverty alleviation.
The conference will discuss solutions, at all scales, to move societies on to a sustainable pathway. It will provide scientific leadership towards the 2012 UN Rio +20 conference.
A lunch-time side session on "Horizon2020", the EU's future instrument for research and innovation support, will take place on 27 March.
