Utilising academic research in policymaking: Horizon Scanning, trend analysis & policy effectiveness

25 November 2014, London, UK

This timely seminar will focus on ways in which Government can utilise academic research and respond to developments in science and technology for effective, long-term policy development. It follows the Commons Science and Technology Committee's inquiry into Government Horizon Scanning, looking at possible improvements in Government's responses on regulation, funding and skills policy in the face of emerging scientific and technological breakthroughs such as graphene, 3D printing and wider advances in renewable energy, transportation systems and telecommunications.


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.

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.
