The GRAIL project (FP7) has been built with 15 partners from 9 different countries with the aim of finalizing the solutions given previously to the valorization of glycerol and transform then in valuable products in a biorefinery approach. During this 4-year project, GRAIL has developed several products, processes and technologies.
We are proud to present them for our final event that is more than a conference as you will be able to interact with the scientists responsible of the research, touch and taste the products and witness the demonstration of some of the application.
18-19 September 2017, Aachen, Germany
The European Technology and Innovation Platform for Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET)organizes a Workshop in Aachen, Germany as part of its mission of guiding Research, Development and Innovation activities to support Europe’s energy transition.
The Regional Workshops aim at:
• Presenting national and regional RD&I projects of significant added value addressing energy system integration issues, in line with the thematic priorities of the ETIP SNET Working Groups;
• Identifying unsolved RD&I topics and monitoring the implementation of RD&I activities at national and regional levels in Europe;
• Ensuring consistency between national and European views;
• Stimulating knowledge-sharing between stakeholders and among Member States and associated countries, to foster the efficient implementation of RD&I projects all over Europe.
The workshops’ outcomes will feed ETIP SNET activities and will be used as input for the development of ETIP SNET’s next Implementation Plan, thus ensuring coherence between national and European RD&I priorities, and fostering the deployment of ambitious national and regional RD&I projects.

12-13 September 2017, Geneva, Switzerland
The 2nd Young Researchers Event (YRE) 2017 is hosted by the Human Brain Project (HBP) and organised by young researchers within the HBP. It will take place in Geneva on 12-13 September and is immediately followed by the in-depth CodeJam on 13-15 September.
This year’s theme is integrating neuroscience data into models and simulations. Participants have the opportunity to learn about the Information & Communication Technology Infrastructure offered and developed by the HBP, and how to use it for their own research.
They will further get the chance to meet other researchers with similar interests, work in small groups and get support on their projects from the HBP Platform experts. The event is targeted towards young researchers (Master and PhD students as well as early postdocs) both from within and outside the HBP and will answer the following questions:
These questions will be addressed in various break-out sessions guided by HBP Platform experts.
