Catalyzing Action: EU Sustainable Lifestyles Roadmap & Action Plan to 2050

26-27 November 2012, Brussels

SPREAD is planning a one-of-a-kind gathering that seeks to bridge the gaps between sustainability, lifestyles, entrepreneurship and policy uncovering unique opportunities for innovation, collaboration, and action. The 2-day highly interactive conference will present, for the first time, the EU Sustainable Lifestyles Roadmap and Action Plan to 2050.

The roadmap, the final outcome of the SPREAD Sustainable Lifestyles 2050 European Social Platform project, outlines opportunity spaces (for policy, business, innovation, design, civil society, citizens, and research) to foster, enable and accelerate more sustainable living practices across Europe which are critical to achieving Europe’s 2020 strategy.

European Bus System of the Future FINAL EVENT

15 October 2012, Brussels, Belgium

For the first time, a wide consortium of 47 partners in 11 countries has dedicated four intensive years of research and development to the improvement of bus systems (under the coordination of UITP). The innovative solutions developed and tested as part of the project 'European Bus System of the Future' can be considered essential ingredients for an intelligent bus system, with pioneering vehicles and infrastructures that are well-integrated in European urban scenarios. At this final event, we will give lively presentations to show the results of our research, and exhibit some of the greatest EBSF achievements: four bus demonstrators and prototype (Volvo, MAN, Irisbus, Evobus), the EBSF driver cabin, and the IT architecture test bench.
