H2+FC 2012 (Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells)
23-27 April 2012, Hannover, Germany
See the latest developments in stationary, portable & mobile fuel cells, fuel cell applications, components, test systems, hydrogen production, transport, storage & infrastructure, reformers and beyond at Europe's largest and most important H2+FC exhibition – the Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells at HANNOVER MESSE.
Around 150 companies and institutions from around the globe will showcase a full spectrum of hydrogen/fuel cell-related products, many of them participating in FP6 and FP7 research. The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking PPP will also be present.
Transport Research Arena 2012
23-26 April 2012, Athens, Greece
The Transport Research Arena (TRA) 2012 serves to enable the exchange of knowledge among those who play an active role in the transport sector. TRA 2012 will focus on all aspects of all surface transport modes with the exception of overseas shipping. It provides experts from different disciplines with a forum for creative discussions about the future of transport at a location where Greek philosophers debated the burning issues of the day some 25 centuries ago.
The main theme of TRA 2012 is 'Sustainable mobility through innovation'.
FISH and SHIPS Conference, MARCOM+ and EMAR2RES Final Event
22 March 2012, Brussels
In its strategic objectives (2005-2009) the Commission recognised that there is a “need for an all-embracing maritime policy aimed at developing a thriving maritime economy, in an environmentally sustainable manner. Such a policy should be supported by excellence in marine scientific research, technology and innovation."
The European research networks dealing with the marine and maritime research sectors transport and maritime industries, tourism, coastal development, security, living resources, fisheries and aquaculture have joined forces to take further steps in integrating their scientific activities. This workshop presents their progress, including several case studies for marine and maritime research cooperation.
Safety on ships: final workshop of FP7 project FLOODSTAND
7 February 2012, Espoo, Finland
The Floodstand project studied flooding, flooding simulation, damage stability, evacuation and rescue, experimental and numerical testing, decision-support and passenger ships.
It aimed first of all to increase the reliability of flooding simulation tools in design and onboard use, by establishing modeling principles and uncertainty bounds. Secondly, it looked to establish a method for instantaneous classification of the severity of ship flooding casualty. Its final results will be presented at this public seminar.
