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.
Use of IB in Biosurfactants
3 September 2014, Berlin, Germany
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 bio-surfactants 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 being developed as part of this project.
Biobased surfactants can be produced either from oils and fats via oleochemical production or from sugars, e.g. molasses by fermentation. Biobased surfactants can be used for a wide range of applications, the largest of which are currently detergents, followed by personal care products and industrial and institutional cleaners. The BIO-TIC project estimates that in 2030 the biobased surfactants market in Europe could have a market value of between 0.8 MEUR and 1.8 BEUR. The market value could be greater than this if the various hurdles to biosurfactants are addressed.
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.
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.

ICMEM 2014 - 3rd International Conference on Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics
14-15 August 2014, Prague, Czech Republic
ICMEM is a comprehensive conference covering various topics of Mechanical Engineering (Fluid and Solid Mechanics), Robotics, Aerospace, and Mechatronics. We believe inclusive and wide-ranging conferences such as ICMEM can have significant impacts by bringing together experts from the different and often separated fields of Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics. By bringing together these fields, it helps create unique opportunities for collaborations and shaping new ideas for experts and researchers.
Robust Manufacturing Conference (RoMaC 2014)
7-9 July 2014, Bremen, Germany
Understanding the cause and effects of multi-scale changes in global production networks is of major interest. New methodological approaches from different science disciplines are promising to contribute to a new-level comprehension of network processes. Scientists and researchers from all disciplines with an interest in Production Planning and Control are welcome to participate and contribute novel ideas focusing on robust manufacturing.
Euroscience Open Forum - ESOF 2014
21-26 June 2014, Copenhagen
ESOF2014 offers a platform where researchers, journalists, policy makers, students and organisations can meet and debate European research and global challenges.
The 2014 meeting is entitled “Science Building Bridges”. The aim of this event is to raise awareness of science in the public and to strengthen the effective “bridges” between science and society.
The scientific programme, covering 8 themes, consists of keynote lectures, seminars, workshops and engaging formats for debating the latest research.
Summer School on Catalysis of Biomass
8-11 June 2014, Líblice (Czech Republic)
The summer school is organized in the frame of the European project CAScade deoxygenation process using tailored nanoCATalysts for the production of BiofuELs from lignocellullosic biomass.
