The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the University of Bergen (NO) will give jointly a half day seminar on the important lessons to be learned for research policy from the history, philosophy and sociology of science.
The objectives of the seminar are:
• to present the historical developments that permitted the fundamental assumptions to come to life and to governing,
• how to integrate and adapt them in our modern reality,
• how to organize the European Research Area (ERA) in the light of the past experience.
If interested in participating, please send an e-mail to the scientific responsible for the event, Mr Daniel Albrecht at: firstname.lastname@example.org

The BIO-TIC consortium wishes to invite you to a free one-day workshop discussing issues surrounding the uptake of industrial biotechnology in the Nordic states. This is your chance to tell us where the hurdles lie and suggest ways in which they could be addressed.
Your input will be crucial in helping us develop an action plan which best addresses the needs of Nordic stakeholders in this strategically important area. For more information on the event please contact email@example.com or Claire Gray, BIO-TIC project coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org This workshop is one of a number of regional workshops being held throughout Europe as part of the BIO-TIC FP7 project, which aims to develop an integrated roadmap and action plan for the successful development of industrial biotechnology in Europe.

Collaborative Systems for Reindustrialization Current economic crisis, which is affecting many world regions, namely in Europe, has led to an intensification of discussions around the reindustrialization needs.
After decades of industrial decline, due to deliberate policies that advocated an exclusive move toward a service-oriented society, while neglecting the production of tradable goods, many countries are struggling with public and private belt-tightening measures which only accelerate the crisis spiral.
Reindustrialization appears as the economic, social, and political process of organizing resources for the purpose of re-establishing / revitalizing industries in order to reinvigorate the economy.

TERENA and SURFnet kindly invite you to the second VAMP workshop on September 30th & October 1st, 2013 in Helsinki, Finland. Goal of VAMP2013 is to foster the deployment of identity management and collaboration tools within the research community. The organisers invite IT architects of international Research Communities, identity federations and providers of (collaborative) infrastructures for research to participate in this interactive workshop.
The design of the workshop is to provide: * structured presentations on exemplar deployments within specific Research Communities, as well as * open discussions for Research Communities architects and infrastructure experts to share use cases, best practices, infrastructural solutions, etc.
VAMP2013 sequels VAMP2012. By the end of the workshop, participants will know about the latest developments in identity federation support for Research Communities, how they can (and cannot) use identity federation, what are the experiences of Research Communities with collaborative infrastructures, and what tools are available for strengthening collaboration. The programme for the workshop will be made available as soon as possible on the TERENA website. Invitation We invite everyone involved in setting up or designing collaborative infrastructures for Research Communities, or otherwise interested, to join us on September 30th and October 1st. We also encourage everyone to provide us with ideas and suggestions for the programme. Research Communities willing to share their experiences with collaborative infrastructures are explicitly invited to forward their suggestions. Please contact us at email@example.com FIM4R & REFEDS VAMP event will be organised in conjunction with FIM4R (Oct 2, organised by ELIXIR Finland) and REFEDs (Oct 2 & 3, organised by TERENA) meetings.
