Leading Enabling Technologies for Societal Challenges - (LET's)
29 September - 1 October 2014, Bologna, Italy
LET’S 2014 is an international Conference organised by the Italian EU Presidency, and supported by European Union Funding for Research and Innovation.
LET’S 2014 aims at discussing the role of the Key Enabling Technologies (Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing, Processing and Biotechnology), in bridging the gap between research and innovation. More than 1000 delegates from all over the world will discuss how Europe can support the growth and the creation of new jobs and face Societal Challenges through new products, processes and services, creating opportunities for European actors.
Chemical Building Blocks – building sustainable foundations for biobased chemicals
1 October 2014, Reims, France
This workshop aims to identify workable solutions to the major hurdles and concerns hampering the development of the biobased chemicals sector in the EU. We are especially interested in views on 3HPA, succinic acid, PDO, furfural, and isoprene as we consider these chemical building blocks to have the highest potential for deployment in the EU.Input from market, policy and technological experts within the area of chemical building blocks is crucial to allow us to develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry.
Chemical building blocks provide routes to a wide range of different products and chemicals and, in turn, an astonishing range of different downstream uses. Industrial biotechnology offers the potential for developing biobased chemical building blocks that can have new or improved functionalities compared to those which can be produced from fossil fuels or traditional chemical routes. Despite this potential, significant hurdles to the production of biobased chemical building blocks using IB processes exist in the EU.
International Conference on Information Security and Cyber Forensics (InfoSec 2014)
6-8 October 2014, Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia
Research in data expertise initiatives will substantially aid in enhancing the quality of information expertise support supplied to the distinct localities and domains. Therefore this conference will present a scenario-planning workout directed to identify possible future information technologies that humanity may face.
Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) Info Day - Registrations are now open!
21 October 2014, Brussels
An Information Day on the Research PPPs on Factories of the Future, Energy-efficient Buildings, Green Vehicles and Sustainable Process Industry will take place on 21 October 2014 in Brussels. The aim of the event is to give the research community an overview of ongoing activities, and to support the preparation of proposals for the 2015 calls. The info day will also offer plenty of opportunities for networking.

Horizon 2020: Transforming Global Challenges into Opportunities for Growth
Growth and Jobs have to become the new mottos of the EU. In line with the priorities of, and in the framework of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU, TECHITALY 2014 offers a unique opportunity to mobilise public and private sectors to transform global challenges into economic opportunities.
Experts will discuss, during three different roundtables, on the most advanced approaches to three selected topics (cyber security, healthy ageing, raw materials) of high impact for European society and industry. Special attention will be paid to innovation processes, leading edge technologies and, where necessary, on requests of new legislative frameworks.
CO2-based Chemicals Production using Industrial Biotechnology
24 September 2014, Lyon, France
The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in CO2 based chemicals production and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps.
CO2 is increasingly being considered by many as a commodity rather than a waste product. The largest current use for CO2 is currently in enhanced oil recovery. However, CO2 holds great potential as a feedstock for chemicals production using IB processes, especially in the EU where the research base is strong and where there is an abundance of CO2 available. CO2 is not part of the food chain so avoids any issues over food v fuel. However, public perception, and logistical and cost challenges in terms of CO2 transport and distribution could hamper the potential of CO2 to be used for chemicals and substantial R&D is needed to bring many opportunities to fruition.
The International Conference on Education Technologies and Computers (ICETC2014)
22-24 September 2014, Lodz, Poland
The conference aims to enable researchers to build connections between different digital applications. The event will be held over three days, with presentations delivered by researchers from the international community, including presentations from keynote speakers and state-of-the-art lectures.
5th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress
31 August - 4 September 2014, Istanbul, Turkey
The biannual EuCheMS Chemistry Congress is a major scientific event where the latest progress in all areas of chemistry will be presented by eminent speakers from all over the world. Two of the highlights of this 5th edition of the ECC will be the European Commission Joint Research Centre session as well as a session with Prof. Bourguignon, President of the European Research Council.
