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

Register now for the Tomorrow's Road and Infrastructure Monitoring and Management (TRIMM) final conference at the Diamant Centre in Brussels, Belgium. TRIMM is a three-year EU 7th Framework Programme coming to an end in November 2014.

This meeting is being organised in conjunction with the European Road Profile User's Group (ERPUG), whose objectives fit very well with the TRIMM project. The conference will be composed of a mix of presentations from TRIMM and ERPUG.
ERPUG will also organise an exhibition and a get-together event including dinner to facilitate networking amongst researchers, manufacturers, companies and stakeholders.
There is a fee of 150 Euros if you want to attend the get-together event, dinner and exhibition.  The project's contribution to the conference will cover advances in the areas of monitoring of roads and bridges, together with implementation aspects such as indicator framework and added-value of monitoring. The TRIMM presentations will be integrated in the themes of the joint agenda with ERPUG and will cover areas such as the use of 3D images, real time data collection, structural health monitoring and management and much more. If you are interested in making a presentation at the event, please advise leif.sjogren@vti.se as soon as possible. The presentation has to cover the TRIMM/ERPUG objectives.
Sponsors and exhibitors are also welcome at the event and you just need to contact roger.moller@ramboll.se. If you become a sponsor at a certain level, you are entitled to a presentation slot.

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.

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).
