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.

People's well-being, industrial competitiveness and the overall functioning of society are dependent on safe, secure, sustainable and affordable energy. The scale of this challenge requires consolidation of research and innovation capacities at EU level.
The objective of the workshop is to demonstrate that energy research & innovation can bring real benefits to European regions. By sharing good examples and best practices from Spain and Germany and presenting practical aspects of the use of structural funds for energy research projects, the aim is to encourage European regions to invest more in energy research & innovation and to foster growth and jobs.
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.
