International conference to launch the Horizon 2020 programme entitled "The EU Horizon 2020 Programme and Teaming for Excellence in the European Research Area" (H2020-TEER), as its title suggests, will act not only on the structure of the program, but also the involvement of Czech research teams in collaboration with teams of excellent European research centers.
Science for the Environment 2013
3-4 October 2013, Aarhus, Denmark
The conference's purpose is to provide input to the European Commission on the future research needs in Horizon 2020. We are calling for abstracts within the three major themes:
- Climate action: mitigation and adaptation
- Resource efficiency: natural resources, ecosystems, raw materials
- Green economy: eco-innovation
Why should you attend?
- To show how your field of research can support solutions of the grand challenges facing society
- To help shape the future European Research Agenda in Horizon 2020
- To meet potential partners for future Horizon 2020 calls
The Conference is being organised by Aarhus University together with the Partnership for European Environmental Research (PEER).
E-MOBILITY IN NORTHWEST EUROPE - BEST PRACTISE AND FUTURE PERSPECTIVES
25 September 2013, Brussels, Belgium
European Network of Electric Vehicles and Transferring Expertise (ENEVATE), the Final Conference on the 25th & 26th of September 2013 in Brussels.
You are invited to attend the Conference day (on the 26th of September in the Diamant Center, Brussels) for public policy makers in Europe, its countries, regions and cities, for stakeholders in the electric vehicle industry as well as for experts in research and education. There is also opportunity to join the Welcome Reception (on the 25th of September) which will be hosted in the EU parliament building. An excellent opportunity for networking in an environment which underlines the need for joint and synchronized action by public policy makers throughout the EU, the automotive industry and the energy sector.
Integral to the conference will be a number of workshops, where you are encouraged to participate in the development of future EU project proposals, which build on the results of ENEVATE, to further stimulate the uptake of e-mobility.
"ICT for sustainable places" conference
