Visit the EU's stand (Number 30) at Ireland's BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition, Dublin

8-10 January 2015, Dublin, Ireland

This year, the EU stand in the World of Science and Technology (Stand number 30 in the Industries Hall) has a special focus on Food Research - so drop in and find out more about what the EU is doing in the area of Food Research - we look forward to meeting you!

Every day there will be interactive areas where you can: • Test your knowledge about food and exercise by taking part in the 'Food4Me Quiz'. You will be surprised at what you learn and could even take home a prize! • Learn how packaging protects our food and how we can protect the environment when we dispose of it in the correct way.

Keystone Symposia: Precision Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology

11-15 January 2015, Big Sky, United States

This meeting gathers experts in development and application of synthetic biology and gene engineering fields to share ideas, methods, problems and solutions in a new era of investigational biology.


EU-U.S. Innovation Conference

14-15 January 2015, Brussels, Belgium

The main goal of the BILAT USA 2.0 EU-U.S. Innovation Conference is to highlight existing best practices in Member States and to promote the integration of the innovation aspect in the EU-U.S. S&T Agreement through more innovative and entrepreneurial principles.

 

Prior to the EU-U.S. innovation conference a BILAT USA 2.0 pre-conference policy workshop 'Towards enhanced EU-U.S. innovation collaboration through policy measures' will discuss EU-U.S. innovation collaboration among policy-makers and highlight especially barriers and challenges experienced by the U.S. research community in order to enhance EU-U.S. RTDI business collaboration.

Natural Products & Biocontrol 2014

24-26 September 2014, Perpignan, France

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!

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.


TECHITALY 2014

25 September 2014, European Parliament, Brussels

Horizon 2020: Transforming Global Challenges into Opportunities for Growth

Growth and Jobs have to become the new mottos of the EU. In line with the priorities of, and in the framework of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU, TECHITALY 2014 offers a unique opportunity to mobilise public and private sectors to transform global challenges into economic opportunities.


Experts will discuss, during three different roundtables, on the most advanced approaches to three selected topics (cyber security, healthy ageing, raw materials) of high impact for European society and industry. Special attention will be paid to innovation processes, leading edge technologies and, where necessary, on requests of new legislative frameworks.

ExpeER International Conference 2014

24-25 September 2014, Paris

The Earth's rapidly changing environment is putting critical ecosystem services at risk. There are many challenges involved in understanding global environmental changes, and in providing societies with the policy-relevant knowledge base to deal with them. These challenges will reach across many aspects of scientific endeavour.

In this context the Experimentation in Ecosystem Research conference will provide a platform for discussions on cutting-edge technological tools, large-scale integrative experimental design, technical constraints, data access and last but not least ecosystem modelling. The conference will attract speakers and delegates from around the world and will offer opportunities to reinforce global cooperation. Main topics Grand challenges: With the current set of Experimental Research infrastructures in ecosystem science, do we have the capacity to tackle the grand challenges of today and tomorrow? In vitro and in natura : How realistic are they, and how they can be better linked? Technologies: Which emerging technologies could enhance (or are needed for) the performance and services offered by our RIs? Data: Towards an e-infrastructure for ecosystem research - challenges and opportunities Modelling: How accurate is our capacity to forecast and upscale, and what is missing? How can we communicate uncertainty? How do we strike the right balance between modelling and experiments?
