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.

ICTTE Belgrade 2014 will be held on 27-28th November 2014 in Belgrade (Serbia) and will be co-hosted by the University of Belgrade, Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering.
ICTTE Belgrade 2014 will gather researchers, scientists and engineers whose fields of interest are traffic and transport engineering, and should provide them a good platform for discussion, interactions and exchange of information.
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.

E-Consultation on Nature-Based Solutions
12 November 2014
The European Commission is developing an EU Research and Innovation policy on nature-based solutions to tackle some of the most pressing challenges of our time. Nature-based solutions can transform societal challenges into innovation opportunities by capitalising on existing knowledge and turning natural capital into a source for green growth and sustainable development. These solutions are inspired and supported by nature, while maintaining and enhancing natural capital. They are sustainable measures that simultaneously meet environmental, social and economic objectives.
The objective of the EU Research & Innovation policy on nature-based solutions is to position Europe as a world leader both in Research & Innovation on nature-based solutions and in the global market for nature-based solutions.
This the stakeholder e-consultation is part of a multi-stakeholder dialogue that will contribute to developing a comprehensive EU Research & Innovation policy framework for nature-based solutions. The e-consultation provides the opportunity to contribute your view and expertise on potential innovation opportunities, relevant examples, and related research and innovation needs for nature-based solutions.
The European Commission, in co-operation with the European Platform for Biodiversity Research Strategy (EPBRS), invites knowledge holders and providers, policy-makers, implementers and market players, users and society at large - from local, regional, national, EU and global level to participate.
Engaging in this anonymous collaborative online dialogue (of max. 80 minutes) from your PC/tablet is easy (http://www.synthetron.com/how-synthetron-works/) and will be triggered by documents sent to registered participants. The four discussion sessions are:
o Improved Risk Management and Resilience – 10:00 CET
o Restoration of Degraded Ecosystems – 12:00 CET
o Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation – 14:00 CET
o Sustainable Urbanisation – 16:00 CET
