The 12th International Congress on Innovations in Coronary Artery Disease (ICCAD 2017) - From Prevention to Intervention will follow the format of the very successful previous ICCAD meetings and will provide a comprehensive bench to bedside update on coronary artery disease in all its aspects.
The scientific program of ICCAD 2017 is being planned with the collaboration and endorsement of the ESC Working Group for Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy and other prestigious groups.
Keynote lectures will be delivered by a distinguished international faculty, while a large number of selected free communications will report new data from basic research laboratories and clinical centers around the globe.
The ICCAD program will include sessions on basic research, stem cell research and myocardial repair, vascular biology and clinical cardiology. We will also dedicate sessions to new advances in pharmacotherapy, especially to the current challenges in antithrombotic and antiplatelet therapy and to the new drugs in lipidology and diabetes which may so dramatically change the outcome and improve the prognosis.
We will also discuss the latest news in interventional cardiology, stents and strategies, including the challenge of concomitant carotid and peripheral vascular disease, the rapidly expanding field of valvular interventions, and the role of the heart team and surgical management of coronary and cardiovascular disease.

The course aims at training smart, integrated, sustainable solutions and innovative tools to manage and reduce the major mycotoxins (aflatoxins, fumonisins, trichothecenes and ochratoxin A) in economically important food and feed chains (maize, wheat, barley, dried fruits and grape) in pre and post-harvest.
Advanced technologies in the field of chemical detection, molecular analysis, modelling and ICT solutions will be covered by highly qualified international instructors, throughout lectures and laboratory experiences.
About half of the duration of the workshop will be ”hands on” and spent in the laboratory.

The H2020 funded projects, AgroCycle and NoAW, are jointly hosting this event to present current thinking and developments in relation to the Circular Economy (CE) applied across the agri-food industry. It combines an overview of the significance and relevance of the CE to the agri-food industry and presents the latest developments in technologies and systems right across the industry chain, from on-farm production systems, through retail and on to the consumer; and beyond into the bio-economy built on the agri-food 'circular economy'. Come join us and take the opportunity to influence the work programme for both NoAW and AgroCycle, thus enriching the overall experience and ensuring your issues are taken into account.

The purpose of this regional workshop is to fully inform ‘newcomers’ (research performing institutions and research funders) on the principles of Charter and Code and their implementation in the research institution via a step-wise procedure called the "Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R)".
The workshop addresses HR Directors and HR Managers in Research performing and Research funding institutions from Bulgaria and Romania. It also addresses high-level representatives of universities, research centres as well as beneficiaries and potential applicants of H2020 contracts/projects who need to comply with article 32 stipulating the (best effort) obligation to take measures to implement the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (C & C) for the benefit of all researchers and their institution.
Registration will close on 15 SEPTEMBER.

The IMPACT project will held its Final Dissemination Event "Managing socio-cultural factors during emergencies in public transport systems" in Rome (Italy), 21-22 September 2017.
IMPACT is a CSA of the European Commission investigating the key role played by cultural factors in managing safety and security issues related to emergencies in public transport systems.
The final event will bring together experts, researchers, practitioners and relevant stakeholders in the different transport domains, including service providers, first responders, law enforcement and national and international regulators.
Keynote speakers, like Gert Jan Hofstede and Marcel Altenburg, will provide the impetus for a discussion on current research trends in socio-cultural aspects relevant for ensuring safety and security in modern transport hubs.
The event will also host a panel session dedicated to introducing the LETS-CROWD H2020 project, recently started.

HoNESt is organizing a Stakeholder Engagement Workshop in Barcelona 21-22 September.
This workshop will be focused in discussing the historical research findings on societal relations with nuclear energy in Southern Europe (Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain).
The workshop will involve three components. First, the participants will discuss the historical research findings on societal relations with nuclear energy and nuclear energy's societal engagement.
Second, the participants will discuss some of the mechanisms identified by the social science research that have been used for engaging the public and other stakeholders with nuclear power. And third, HoNESt would very much value the participants involvement in a workshop where we will explore the future of societal engagement in the nuclear industry.
The Workshop will be held at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. It will start on Thursday, 21 September, and end on Friday, 22 September. The working language of the event is English. A part of travel and accommodation expenses is refunded. Places are limited.

This event brings together the most innovative European hydrogen initiatives in the transport sector.
On Friday 22 September 2017 sector experts will share the latest learnings from the FCH JU funded HyFIVE and H2ME 1 & 2 projects and demonstrate hydrogen technology as the solution to advancing the EU’s air quality and green agenda.
The morning part of the event will be dedicated to the HyFIVE final conference including conclusions from the project and discussions on the benefits of zero-emission hydrogen technology in project regions.
This will give participants the chance to find out how hydrogen technology is closely linked to the EU’s air quality and green agenda and will highlight next steps beyond the project.
In the afternoon, a roundtable hosted by the H2ME project will take place, hosting a discussion about how hydrogen and fuel cell technology (HFC) can support the EU’s decarbonisation goals and how to address the remaining barriers to uptake of HFC technologies in the transport sector.
