27-28 September 2012, Athenes, Greece

The climate is changing, floods are becoming more frequent and more intense throughout Europe. Science and flood resilience technology are advancing towards increased efficiency and reduced damage costs.
The conference is addressing innovative flood resilience technologies and systems, testing of standards, damage modelling, decision support, and future actions needed. The conference will run parallel to an international exhibition dedicated to flood resilient technologies and systems for the built environment.
Join us!

East-Meets-West on Innovation and Entrepreneurship Congress and Exhibition

1-4 September 2012, Nicosia

The Congress is organised by the European Office of Cyprus and will explore new tools to bring researchers and enterprises together from all over the world. The Congress will serve as a highlight global event for harnessing the potential of entrepreneurship to transfer innovation ideas into products and services.
The main objective of the conference is to promote cross-national collaboration between East and West as a tool to overcome national limitations on knowledge, financial resources, technology, and services.

Transport Research Information Days

18-19 July 2012, Brussels, Charlemagne building

The transport theme under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) welcomes excellent research proposals looking for innovative solutions to today’s transport-related societal challenges.

Are you from an SME, company, research institution or university and interested in learning more about how to participate in the transport theme under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7)? Meet us and potential partners at the ‘infodays’ and find out all about the Work Programme 2013.

The aim of the two-day event is to inform potential researchers about FP7 and the new Transport Calls for Proposals under the ‘Co-operation’ Programme. Details will also be given on the main legal and procedural conditions and we will respond to your questions. Participants will also have the chance to network with potential project partners.

29-30 May 2012, Geneva, Switzerland

The EWENT project dealt with extreme Weather impacts on European networks of transport. At this final conference the EWENT researchers and researchers of related projects will present their findings on:
1. What are the extreme weather phenomena that are most harmful to transport system and what and where are the biggest impacts?
2. How these phenomena are going to change in pace with expected climate change?
3. What are the total costs induced to transport system by extreme weather?
4. What European parts – geographically, mode-wise – are most vulnerable to extreme weather?
5. How can we prepare ourselves, what are the means and the tools?

Take off for PEGASOS - Launch event of the Airborne campaign (Zeppelin)

4 May 2012, Deutsche Zeppelin-Reederei, Friedrichshafen, Germany

In May 2012, the Zeppelin New Technology (NT) will embark on a series of campaigns which will be carried out through 2012/2013. The campaigns are part of the pan-European “PEGASOS” project funded by the EU's Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7) in which 26 partners from 15 European nations are investigating the relationship between atmospheric chemistry and climate change. The Zeppelin will fly over Europe (Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Slovenia, Italy and France) during three scheduled experimental flights.

The EU’s PEGASOS project (Pan-European-Gas-AeroSOl-Climate Interaction Study) is a large scale project funded by the European Commission under the auspices of the Seventh Framework Programme. The purpose of the project is to investigate key atmospheric processes and to provide the scientific basis for the design of EU-wide climate protection measures as well as improve the quality of air in Europe.

The research will also be available for global climate policy, since most of the project partners are also involved in the work of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
