H2+FC 2012 (Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells)
23-27 April 2012, Hannover, Germany
See the latest developments in stationary, portable & mobile fuel cells, fuel cell applications, components, test systems, hydrogen production, transport, storage & infrastructure, reformers and beyond at Europe's largest and most important H2+FC exhibition – the Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells at HANNOVER MESSE.
Around 150 companies and institutions from around the globe will showcase a full spectrum of hydrogen/fuel cell-related products, many of them participating in FP6 and FP7 research. The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking PPP will also be present.
Greener Aeronautics International Networking (GRAIN)
26-28 March 2012, Beijing, China
The Chinese aviation industry has seen two digit growth rates in the past 30 years and this will remain increasing, making environmentally friendly air transportation and advanced technology for greener aircraft development all the more important.
The main objective of this workshop is to identify key technology areas for greening that have the potential for 'win-win' co-operation between Europe and China.
The workshop will be of interest to engineers and researchers involved in areas of greening technologies for aviation as well as for experts, managers and officials interested in aeronautics co-operation between China and Europe.
Airport Security & Behavioural Modelling
19 March 2012, Brussels
BEMOSA develops a behaviour model that aims to describe how people make security decisions in the face of reality during normal routine and crisis situations. By adopting this model and using a specially developed training package for staff, airport authorities can increase security, reduce false alarms and improve profitability. The workshop will present results to-date, in particular regarding the principles of social networking applied to airport security.
RESTART loving science! - collaboration between aeronautical scientists, teachers and young people
29 February 2012, Brussels, Belgium
As part of the European project REStARTS, four European Research Establishments in aeronautics have developed a set of educational materials for teachers and students of primary and secondary schools. The tools developed for teachers to use in the classroom are directly related to aspects of research in aeronautics.
This afternoon will be an opportunity to demonstrate the developments resulting from a close collaboration between the world of research and education.
