Bio-based Plastics – How do we Grow the EU Industry?

1 December 2014, Brussels

This workshop aims to identify workable solutions to the major hurdles hampering the development of the bio-based plastics sector in the EU. We are especially interested in PLA and PHA as we consider these bio-based plastics as having the highest potential for deployment in the EU. Input from market, policy and technological experts within the area of bioplastics is crucial to allow us to develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry.

Today, bio-based plastics have an established market, demonstrating rapid growth both in Europe and globally. While Europe is currently the largest producer and user of bio-based plastics, this situation is expected to change in the future with production increasingly being based in countries where feedstocks are cheaper and where production costs are lower. Even with increasing fossil fuel prices expected to make bio-based plastics more competitive compared to fossil-derived plastics, ensuring the cost-competitiveness of EU bio-based plastics production compared to other regions globally is expected to become an increasingly difficult challenge.


3rd International Conference on Sustainability, Technology and Education 2014 (STE 2014)

10-12 December 2014, New Taipei City, Taiwan

The Sustainability, Technology and Education 2014 conference (STE 2014) aims to address the main issues which occur by assessing the relationship between sustainability, education and technology. Broad areas of interest are: Sustainability and Leadership, Sustainability and Green IT, Sustainability and Education. These broad areas are divided into more detailed areas (please see http://www.sustainability-conf.org/call-for-papers)

 


Implementing the Science and Innovation Strategy

29 January 2015, London, UK

The UK Government's Innovation Strategy is due to be released alongside the 2014 Autumn Statement. This timely conference will bring together key policymakers with stakeholders central to the strategy's implementation to discuss the likely impact of the proposals and the challenges for putting policy into practice.

At this early stage we expect topics for discussion to focus on priorities for public spending on science, efforts to boost private investment in R&D and further steps Government can take to support business and university collaboration to increase the commercialisation of UK research. Sessions will also include discussion on the the impact that Government's focus on 'eight great technologies' has had so far and the next steps for developing these technologies in the UK.

10 years ERA-NET Bioenergy - Research results and future strategies

11 November 2014, Hanover, Germany

RESEARCH FOR THE AGRI-FORESTRY SECTOR, BIO-BASED INDUSTRIES, ENERGY CONSUMERS AND FOR SOCIETY - This conference brings together selected key members of the agri-forestry sector to showcase the results of innovative projects in the fields of sustainable forest management, optimised use of lignocellulosic resources, biogas production and energy crops.

We will also take a policy view of the sector and discuss strategic direction, suitability and use of Era-Nets for the agri-forestry sector. The event takes place in the frame of the International trade fair for innovative energy supply Energy Decentral (www.energy-decentral.com). Participants thus have the chance to enlarge their networks and pick up innovative solutions for an independent, decentralised energy supply.
