9-10 July 2014, Munich, Germany
The EU project 'Climate for Culture' will come to an end this year after five years of successful research cooperation. We would therefore like to invite you to the presentation of the final results of our research work at Munich's beautiful Munich Residenz, the former royal palace of the Bavarian monarchs.
A multidisciplinary team of 27 partners from 14 countries has investigated the impact of climate change on historic buildings and their collections in Europe and the Mediterranean region. The main innovation has been to couple for the first time high resolution climate modeling with whole building simulation tools in order to predict better the influence of the changing outdoor climate on the indoor and microclimate in historic buildings until 2100 and to assess the damage potential in various climate zones (www.climateforculture.eu).
Programme: During the two days of the conference, the partners will present the tools and methodologies developed within the project. These are intended to support decision makers and heritage owners in managing historic buildings in a sustainable way. The event will open with a keynote lecture by the internationally renowned climatologist, Prof. Dr. Guy Brasseur, Director of the German Climate Service Center in Hamburg, Germany.

Understanding the cause and effects of multi-scale changes in global production networks is of major interest. New methodological approaches from different science disciplines are promising to contribute to a new-level comprehension of network processes. Scientists and researchers from all disciplines with an interest in Production Planning and Control are welcome to participate and contribute novel ideas focusing on robust manufacturing.

Public-private partnerships set up under the EU's new research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020, will launch their first calls on 9 July 2014 in Brussels. The partnerships work in strategic areas such as medicines, fuel cells, air and rail transport or electronics. They represent an essential investment into Europe's economy and in a better quality of life.
They will launch calls for projects and partners at a stakeholder event in Brussels, which will be attended by the President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso along with the Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science Máire Geoghegan-Quinn as well as Commission Vice-Presidents Siim Kallas, responsible for mobility and transport, and Neelie Kroes, responsible for the digital agenda.

The creation of the European Science and Technology Network on Unconventional Hydrocarbon Extraction was decided in the Commission Communication on the exploration and production of hydrocarbons using high-volume hydraulic fracturing in the EU, issued on 22 January 2014.
The network aims to "[bring] together practitioners from industry, research, academia as well as civil society. The Network will collect, analyse and review results from exploration projects as well as assess the development of technologies used in unconventional gas and oil projects".
