Joint Technology Initiatives: Innovation in Action
30 September - 4 October 2013, Brussels
The five Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) – IMI (innovative medicines), Clean Sky (aeronautics and air transport), ENIAC JU (nanoelectronics), FCH (fuel cells and hydrogen), and ARTEMIS (embedded computing systems) - will present their achievements to date and their vision on future challenges at a shared event and exhibition called Innovation in Action. The event will take place at the European Parliament in Brussels, in the presence of policy makers, industry, academic and research organisations.
The purpose of the event is to focus on the value proposition, model for innovative research and contribution to European quality of life of the JTIs in the context of the ongoing discussions on the Innovation Investment Package within the EU Horizon 2020 Programme, presented on 10 July 2013 by the European Commission.
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).
Beta-cell Regeneration and Genome Regulation
27-29 September 2013, Sitges (Barcelona)
This workshop will present cutting edge developments in rapidly developing fields such as beta cell programming, regeneration, epigenetics, non-coding RNAs, and genetic targets in Type 2 diabetes. It is a continuation of very successful meetings on related topics in Helsinki (2003) El Perello (2006), Peebles (2009), and Helsingor (2011).
We are happy to announce a panel of outstanding speakers, and hope to attract exciting oral presentations and poster discussions. The event will take place in Sitges, a priviliged seashore venue 34 Km south of Barcelona, immediately after the EASD annual meeting.
Innovation systems in health economies: Regional, transnational and macro-regional cooperation
26 September 2013, Brussels
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.
