International Conference on Information Security and Cyber Forensics (InfoSec 2014)

6-8 October 2014, Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia

Research in data expertise initiatives will substantially aid in enhancing the quality of information expertise support supplied to the distinct localities and domains. Therefore this conference will present a scenario-planning workout directed to identify possible future information technologies that humanity may face.

Chemical Building Blocks – building sustainable foundations for biobased chemicals

1 October 2014, Reims, France

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.

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.

CO2 Utilization: What are the bottlenecks and how can they be tackled through EU policy?

26 September 2014, Lyon, France

SCOT (Smart CO2 Transformation) is a project to develop the Strategic European Research Agenda aimed at improving the technical and economic performance of emerging CO2 transformation technologies.

It gathers five regions which are strongly committed and already well advanced in this emerging area of CO2 utilization (Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and UK) and it is the first ever European initiative in the field of CO2 utilization strategy. While we prepare our Joint Action Plan and the Strategic Research Agenda, we want to gather stakeholder views on what are the key policy bottlenecks and their potential solutions. Thus, you are invited to register for this event and engage in the discussion.

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.
