7-9 March 2017, Sofia, Bulgaria
Save the Planet is the only specialized business event in Bulgaria dedicated to waste management, following the trend of replacing the ‘take, make, dispose' model with a ‘circular economy’ approach across Europe.
The exhibition’s focus is the South-East European market, which must respond timely to the growing environmental damage.
The 2016 edition took place together with the complementary exhibitions Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (energy efficient technology and alternative energy, waste-to-energy) and Smart Cities (energy efficient building, intelligent transport, software and information systems).
Exhibitors from 16 countries participated in the events - companies from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the UK, the USA.

The EE & RE Exhibition puts on display a great set of existing energy technologies and it is a starting point for the launch of innovative products. It facilitates the development of the energy sector and encourages the large-scale usage of energy-saving solutions in South-East Europe.
The Region has great potential for the utilization of renewables. Investments for the improvement of energy efficiency in private and public buildings as well as in the industry are underway - South-East European countries are also developing strategies for zero energy buildings. T
he CO2 reduction in the transport sector is the other priority issue and in the Region solutions for the replacement of fossil fuels with alternative low carbon fuels are sought.

Future Sky Safety, the EU-funded Joint Research Programme in the field of aviation safety is pleased to announce its First External Workshop on “Future Sky Safety: a Joint Programme for Aviation safety”.
The Public Workshop will be held in Brussels, at EUROCONTROL Headquarters, on the 8th and 9th of March, 2017. Aviation safety stakeholders – Regulators, Industry, Research Centres, Universities and members of EC and National funded RTD projects – are invited to attend.
The Public Workshop will be a unique opportunity for all participants to network and to discuss emerging safety issues and trends, progress of aviation safety research, and to be updated on the latest research developments on key topics such as:
- Reduction of Runway excursion;
- Total aviation system risk prevention and mitigation;
- Reduction of the likelihood of organisational accidents;
- Improvement of pilot performance and reduction of human errors;
- Mitigation of risk of fire, smoke and fumes in modern cabins.
A poster session will also be organised around these five topics, and will be open to students, researchers, projects and all interested participants.

The European Commission is organising a Seminar on the "Future of European Steel - Innovation and Sustainability in a competitive world and EU circular economy".
The seminar will take place in Brussels at DG Research & Innovation, Covent Garden Building, 16 Place Rogier.
With the insights from steel stakeholders and EU policy-makers, three main sessions will deal with :
♦ Research & Innovation results
♦ European Steel in 2051
♦ The way forward
Due to the limited size of the meeting room and for security reasons, the seminar will be on invitation only. For more information please contact Domenico.Rossetti-di-Valdalbero@ec.europa.eu, Deputy Head of Unit "Coal and Steel" in DG Research & Innovation.

Flow Cytometry is one of the most powerful single cell analysis methods used throughout the life sciences and medicine. Utilising Flow Cytometry we can identify and quantify different from heterogeneous samples, analyse the corresponding state of proliferation or simply detect the expression of fluorescent reporters.
Improvements in assay technology are now enabling scientist to detect mRNAs in cells using flow cytometry.
We will cover the theory of Flow Cytometry and corroborate this information intensively with the practical issues of the most frequent assays as part of our practical course curriculum.

The concluding conference of the EC funded FP7 project ITSSOIN. In a short and concise meeting we want to present and discuss the questions:
(1) Who spurs social innovation in Europe and which organisational traits enable drivers of social innovation to take that position?
(2) Is the Third Sector really better placed to promote social innovation than businesses and public agencies?
