The International Conference on Education Technologies and Computers (ICETC2014)
22-24 September 2014, Lodz, Poland
The conference aims to enable researchers to build connections between different digital applications. The event will be held over three days, with presentations delivered by researchers from the international community, including presentations from keynote speakers and state-of-the-art lectures.
CO2-based Chemicals Production using Industrial Biotechnology
24 September 2014, Lyon, France
The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in CO2 based chemicals production and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps.
CO2 is increasingly being considered by many as a commodity rather than a waste product. The largest current use for CO2 is currently in enhanced oil recovery. However, CO2 holds great potential as a feedstock for chemicals production using IB processes, especially in the EU where the research base is strong and where there is an abundance of CO2 available. CO2 is not part of the food chain so avoids any issues over food v fuel. However, public perception, and logistical and cost challenges in terms of CO2 transport and distribution could hamper the potential of CO2 to be used for chemicals and substantial R&D is needed to bring many opportunities to fruition.

Horizon 2020: Transforming Global Challenges into Opportunities for Growth
Growth and Jobs have to become the new mottos of the EU. In line with the priorities of, and in the framework of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU, TECHITALY 2014 offers a unique opportunity to mobilise public and private sectors to transform global challenges into economic opportunities.
Experts will discuss, during three different roundtables, on the most advanced approaches to three selected topics (cyber security, healthy ageing, raw materials) of high impact for European society and industry. Special attention will be paid to innovation processes, leading edge technologies and, where necessary, on requests of new legislative frameworks.
Leading Enabling Technologies for Societal Challenges - (LET's)
29 September - 1 October 2014, Bologna, Italy
LET’S 2014 is an international Conference organised by the Italian EU Presidency, and supported by European Union Funding for Research and Innovation.
LET’S 2014 aims at discussing the role of the Key Enabling Technologies (Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing, Processing and Biotechnology), in bridging the gap between research and innovation. More than 1000 delegates from all over the world will discuss how Europe can support the growth and the creation of new jobs and face Societal Challenges through new products, processes and services, creating opportunities for European actors.

Industrial Technologies 2014
9-11 April 2014, Athens, Greece
The Industrial Technologies 2014 conference integrates nanotechnology, biotechnology, advanced materials and new production technologies. The event offers opportunities for developing valuable research and industry collaborations, and showcases cutting-edge research, latest innovations and rising companies from all around Europe.
The main topics include:
- European and global developments in the high-tech arena,
- Re-industrialisation and regional development in Europe,
- Technological and entrepreneurial opportunities especially for the Balkan and Mediterranean states, and
- Opportunities in Horizon 2020 in the field of enabling technologies.
The event takes place during the Greek Presidency of the European Council and has received funding from European Union Seventh Framework Programme.
