Sustainable Places 2014

1-3 October 2014, Nice, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

Sustainable Places 2014 builds on the successful “ICT for Sustainable Places” conference held in Nice in September 2013. It will focus on energy efficiency at building, district and city levels. The event will be composed of: - the 2nd EC DG CONNECT workshop on eeBuilding Key Performance Indicators - the EuropIA.14 colloquia on Architecture and City Design - presentations & workshops on innovative business models, technologies, modeling and monitoring for sustainable buildings, districts and cities.

Sustainable Places 2014 will enable to access up-to-date information, assess outcomes from the most advanced research & innovation projects, discuss possible synergies, and envision possible standards evolution. It will be a key opportunity for delegates to meet and network with high quality keynote speakers (from CSTB, CEA, Arup, Intel and CalCon), as well as with architects, building designers, energy consultants, and urban planners.

ICAR2014 will be a forum to communicate current research priorities and progress, and to identify new approaches and research opportunities in antimicrobial research.


Chemical Building Blocks – building sustainable foundations for biobased chemicals

1 October 2014, Reims, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

This workshop aims to identify workable solutions to the major hurdles and concerns hampering the development of the biobased chemicals sector in the EU. We are especially interested in views on 3HPA, succinic acid, PDO, furfural, and isoprene as we consider these chemical building blocks to have the highest potential for deployment in the EU.Input from market, policy and technological experts within the area of chemical building blocks is crucial to allow us to develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry.

Chemical building blocks provide routes to a wide range of different products and chemicals and, in turn, an astonishing range of different downstream uses. Industrial biotechnology offers the potential for developing biobased chemical building blocks that can have new or improved functionalities compared to those which can be produced from fossil fuels or traditional chemical routes. Despite this potential, significant hurdles to the production of biobased chemical building blocks using IB processes exist in the EU.


3rd GRF One Health Summit 2014

5-8 October 2014, Davos, Switzerland

A Basic European Unemployment Insurance

29 September 2014, Vienna

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

"A basic European unemployment insurance scheme would provide a limited and predictable short-term fiscal stimulus to economies undergoing a downturn in the economic cycle - something that every country is going to experience sooner or later. With its automatic and countercyclical character, a basic European unemployment insurance scheme could boost market confidence in the EMU and thus help to avoid repeating vicious circles of downgrades, austerity and internal devaluation in the eurozone. It would help to uphold domestic demand and therefore economic growth in Europe as a whole."

WWWforEurope lecture by László Andor, Member of the European Commission in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.

For registration and details: Dr. Margit Schratzenstaller at WIFO, coordinator of WWWforEurope (wwwforeurope-office@wifo.ac.at ) and Domenico Rossetti di Valdalbero, Scientific Officer of WWWforEurope at European Commission, DG RTD (Domenico.Rossetti-di-Valdalbero@ec.europa.eu).

CO2 Utilization: What are the bottlenecks and how can they be tackled through EU policy?

26 September 2014, Lyon, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

SCOT (Smart CO2 Transformation) is a project to develop the Strategic European Research Agenda aimed at improving the technical and economic performance of emerging CO2 transformation technologies.

It gathers five regions which are strongly committed and already well advanced in this emerging area of CO2 utilization (Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and UK) and it is the first ever European initiative in the field of CO2 utilization strategy. While we prepare our Joint Action Plan and the Strategic Research Agenda, we want to gather stakeholder views on what are the key policy bottlenecks and their potential solutions. Thus, you are invited to register for this event and engage in the discussion.


Natural Products & Biocontrol 2014

24-26 September 2014, Perpignan, France

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The activity of biocontrol products depend on numerous biotic interactions implying secondary metabolisms. The Natural Products and Biocontrol Congress covers the whole research about the natural components involved in biocontrol processes.

The natural compounds involved in interactions are exogene to the plant (active components of a vegetal extract, microbial metabolite, pheromons) or endogene (produced by a plant in response of an elicitor). Therefore the Congress also covers the research in the vegetal response to elicitors and phytostimulus. It is opened to scientists, technicians, industrials whose research are centred on biocontrol and natural products. The main points of the event open conferences, scientific presentations (spoken or displayed), one to one , discussions.


European Researchers' Night 2014

26 September 2014, All across Europe!

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

European Researchers' Nights are events dedicated to popular science and fun learning. They are an opportunity to meet researchers, talk to them, and to find out what they really do for society, in interactive and engaging ways. This can be through hands-on experiments, science shows, learning activities for children, guided visits of research labs, science quizzes and more.

They take place every year simultaneously in several hundred cities all over Europe and beyond.
