Bio-based Plastics – How do we Grow the EU Industry?
1 December 2014, Brussels
This workshop aims to identify workable solutions to the major hurdles hampering the development of the bio-based plastics sector in the EU. We are especially interested in PLA and PHA as we consider these bio-based plastics as having the highest potential for deployment in the EU. Input from market, policy and technological experts within the area of bioplastics is crucial to allow us to develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry.
Today, bio-based plastics have an established market, demonstrating rapid growth both in Europe and globally. While Europe is currently the largest producer and user of bio-based plastics, this situation is expected to change in the future with production increasingly being based in countries where feedstocks are cheaper and where production costs are lower. Even with increasing fossil fuel prices expected to make bio-based plastics more competitive compared to fossil-derived plastics, ensuring the cost-competitiveness of EU bio-based plastics production compared to other regions globally is expected to become an increasingly difficult challenge.

First announcement, save the date! Conference on Transport Safety: societal challenges, research solutions
4-5 December 2014, Palazzo Ducale – Genoa, Italy
This Conference, convened by the Italian EU Presidency and the European Commission, will gather stakeholders, transport professionals and policy makers from the different transport modes, to assess the future needs for transport safety, and identify priorities for activities in Horizon 2020 and beyond.
The conference will address both the safety challenges specific to each mode, common issues and concerns that cut across them – notably human factors, automation and data management – taking into account societal challenges, policy requirements, technological developments and economic benefits.
This event is expected to provide useful input towards the definition of a shared European R&I agenda, with pointers to be taken into account in the preparation of next Horizon 2020 Work Programmes, with a view to ensure the proper deployment and implementation of safety solutions resulting from research activities.
