JOINT KICK-OFF MEETING RESOURCE EFFICIENCY

5-6 November 2013, Brussels

On November 5 and 6 the Environment Directorate of DG RTD is launching fourteen new research and demonstration projects in the field of Resource Efficiency. More than 40 million euros will support the work of more than 140 researchers and entrepreneurs coming from 19 different European countries.
We are currently at a time of increasing energy prices, carbon constraints and intense competition for resources and markets. In this context, not only does innovation in Resource Efficiency contribute to improving the quality of our environment, but it also generates new jobs and new market opportunities.
Top researchers in the field are identifying new eco-innovative solutions and ideas for a more efficient European economy and a group of forward-looking companies - 4 out of 5 are SMEs - are ready to demonstrate these ideas with pilot projects. This will contribute to increasing resource productivity, by reducing waste and reusing what can be salvaged in the production cycle.
This the second time the Environment Directorate has been organising a joint kick-off meeting for Resource Efficiency projects. Another 18 projects for a total EU’s contribution of more than 61 million euros were launched in October 2012.

Industrial Biotechnology in Germany. Identifying Hurdles and Opportunities

10 October 2013, Hannover, Germany

The BIO-TIC consortium wish to invite you to a free one-day workshop discussing issues surrounding the uptake of industrial biotechnology in Germany. 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 German 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.
