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 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.

Standards - Your Innovation Bridge
30 October 2014, Brussels
This European conference will offer participants the opportunity to engage with leading experts on innovation and standardization issues, to discuss, challenge and learn how standardization can enhance the impact of innovation in Europe.
The conference will address: - How do standards support innovation and competitiveness? - How can standardization facilitate the dissemination of knowledge? - How can standards bridge the gap between innovation and the market? - How can standardization contribute to the success of Horizon2020?
Joint Final Event “DEMOSEC: Democracy and Security”
29-30 October 2014, DIAMANT Conference & Business Centre - Diamant Building / 80 Bd. A. Reyers LN / 1030 Brussels
The Joint Final Event “DEMOSEC: Democracy and Security” of the EU projects IRISS, RESPECT and SURVEILLE takes place on 29-30 October 2014 at the DIAMANT Brussels Conference & Business Centre in Brussels.
The event will feature discussion panels and communicate research results of the three projects to stakeholders: European decision-makers, law enforcement professionals, local authorities, technologies developers, the media and the general public.
Helen Nissenbaum (New York University) will deliver a keynote address on Surveillance and Democracy. The discussion panels will focus on:
•TECHNOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF SURVEILLANCE (Surveillance technologies in society, use of technologies),
•THE LEGAL ASPECTS OF SURVEILLANCE (Reconciling human rights protection and security, Data retention and fundamental rights, Targeted use of surveillance technologies to control individuals considered as dangerous, the role of Law Enforcement Agencies in Surveillance),
•THE SOCIAL IMPLICATIONS OF SURVEILLANCE (Surveillance, Resilience and Democracy, Intersection of Surveillance with Citizen’s Rights and Citizens attitudes towards surveillance).

Bringing R&I excellence to the limelight in EU13 countries
29 October 2014, Brussels
The MIRRIS policy workshop at DG RTD discussed new knowledge on obstacles hindering the participation of EU13 countries in the European Research Area and recommendations on how to overcome them. New data from MIRRIS highlight the decreasing share of post-2004 Member States in European R&I funding from FP6 to the end of FP7 research programmes. An unhealthy competition between structural funds and EU research programmes has been revealed during stakeholder consultations in all concerned Member States. The first set of MIRRIS recommendations and best practices were presented at the workshop. Most of them could be put in place at no or very low cost creating an enabling environment for excellent research and innovation in EU 13 countries and mutually reinforcing rather than competing relation between ESIF funds and Horizon2020.
