SESAR Innovation Days

25-27 November 2014, Madrid, Spain

The SESAR Innovation Days is the main forum for the dissemination of ATM (Air Traffic Management) exploratory research results. It focuses explicitly on long-term and innovative research ideas.

Long-term and innovative research is pivotal to the future evolution of ATM. It addresses novel and/or unconventional ideas, concepts and technologies that contribute to the development of a safe, competitive and sustainable future for the European ATM System.


Innovation in waste management: Linking the ‘circular economy’ and the ‘waste hierarchy'

26 November 2014, Espoo, Finland

The workshop addresses the macro environmental effects of the diffusion of non-landfill waste management technologies for MSW by adopting an LCA approach. During the session, the participants will explore possible changing pressures from shifting to non-landfill MSW management technologies.

The presentations will explore observed ex post trends (1996-2011) and on ex ante scenarios (2012-2030 and beyond). The experts and guests are invited to discuss policy and economic implications of (saved) external costs from shifting to non-landfill MSW management technologies.

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.

Co-producing knowledge: towards sustainable lifestyles and green economy in Europe

19 November 2014, Brussels

Fifty stakeholders participated at the GLAMURS workshop on "Co-producing knowledge for supporting transitions to sustainable lifestyles and a green economy in Europe" (CSIC, Brussels, 19/11/2014) . This workshop was divided in two sessions: in the morning with presentations and question-answers; in the afternoon with interactive and participatory methods that allowed to implement an active interface between researchers and EU policy-makers on sustainable lifestyles and green economy.

For more information about GLAMURS: Ricardo Garcia Mira, Coordinator (University of A Coruña) and Domenico Rossetti di Valdalbero, Project Officer (European Commission, DG RTD).
