World e-ID Congress has become in eight years a key event gathering over 350 e-ID programs managers, government officials and technology experts around world’s major e-ID projects, policies trends and latest innovations. In 2013 the conference will strengthen its key features to help the participants to succeed in their e-ID plans: exploring further the most significant e-ID projects worldwide (20 countries scanned in 2012), highlighting best practices and concrete solutions, discussing worldwide policies, technology and market dynamics.
2013 conference highlights:
– Global approach reinforced with specific sessions on Africa and the emerging countries thanks to the partnership with the World Bank,
– Stronger focus given to the mobile ID applications and deployments by governments, enterprises and banks,
– With contactless at the heart of next generation e-ID, the conference will also benefit from the synergies of the co-located "NFC World Congress". The new "M2M Innovation World Congress" also co-located will add more content and networking opportunities,
– More interactive panels on hottest topics, e.g. on harmonization of policies, cross border issues, travel document vs. mobile ID with smartphones, etc.

Innovation and Smart Specialisation are key instruments to shape the future of a Europe that has smart, inclusive and sustainable solutions for societal challenges. From theory to practice, from “Smart Specialisation” to “Smart Implementation”; now it is time to see how these concepts can become a reality and programmes might be implemented to have a sustainable impact.
Regions play a key role in health care delivery and in the process of adopting innovative solutions in the domain of health care. How can regions collaborate on a transnational stage without compromising the interest of the regional stakeholders? Is it possible to create a win-win situation through sharing of innovations on the product-, process- and system level? To address these questions, this workshop (co-organized by ScanBalt HealthPort, Network of German Health Regions (NDGR) and Health ClusterNET) brings together experts from major European initiatives that have developed strategies in this field. One of the major objectives is to surpass existing boundaries and open the way for inclusion of stakeholders outside the traditional health sector.

The BIO-TIC consortium wish to invite you to a free one-day workshop discussing issues surrounding the uptake of industrial biotechnology in Spain.For Spain to grow and develop its industrial biotechnology base, it will be vital to access EU funding for research and innovation activities.
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 Spanish stakeholders in this strategically important area. 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.
