Designing future energy policies: Social sciences and humanities to accelerate the energy transition
22 January 2019, Brussels, Belgium
Energy policies cannot fulfil their maximum potential if the knowledge stemming from social sciences and humanities research is not factored into the decision-making process. Citizens should be at the core of all policies, including those to do with energy. This conference will underline how crucial social knowledge is to accelerating the decarbonisation of our economy and making a real dent in climate change. It will also present concrete recommendations on how to advance and better design future European energy policies in the context of the upcoming research and innovation framework: Horizon Europe. The event is organised as part of the SHAPE ENERGY H2020 EU-funded project. It aims at generating new knowledge, support evidence-based policymaking, produce interdisciplinary solutions and develop Europe's expertise in using and applying available research into the energy transition decision-making process. It will bring the perfect opportunity for a wide range of high level panellists and senior stakeholders to connect the dots, debate the key issues and think through on the political and social changes as well the necessary research and innovation investments needed to further integrate social sciences in the future of policymaking.

3rd HBP Student Conference On Interdisciplinary Brain Research
6-7 February 2019, Ghent, Belgium
The human brain is such a complex system that it can only be understood by combining knowledge and practices from multiple scientific fields.
The 3rd HBP Student Conference provides an open forum for the exchange of new ideas among young researchers working across various aspects of science relevant to the Human Brain Project (HBP).
The conference offers a space for extensive scientific dialogue, both intra- and interdisciplinary, among peers and faculty through a variety of discussion sessions, lectures and social events.
European Societal Challenges: The Future of Human-Robot Interaction
6 February 2019, Brussels, Belgium

Successful R&I in Europe 2019 - 10th European Networking Event
14-15 February 2019, Düsseldorf, Germany
For the tenth time, the conference invites researchers and entrepreneurs from North Rhine-Westphalia and regions in Europe to find new European research and innovation (R&I) partners for Horizon 2020 projects.
The series of events has been a great success with over 2600 participants since 2009. The networking event will be structured in parallel workshops focussing on seven topics:
- Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
- Nanotechnology, Materials and Manufacturing (NMM)
- Circular Economy
- Life Sciences
- Innovative Public Procurement (PCP/PPI)
Giving a short presentation (ideas and/or results) or finding a partner by talking to decision-makers opens doors for new research and innovation projects in Europe with a focus on Horizon 2020.
EURINT 2018 conference | Reflecting on Europe’s (dis)order: scenarios for the EU’s future
18-19 May 2018, Iasi, Romania
The Centre for European Studies within Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi organizes the seventh EURINT edition, May 18-19, 2018. The event is part of the EURINT conference series which was successfully launched in 2013 in the frame of the Jean Monnet Life Long Learning Programme.
Since 2013, the EURINT conference series has established itself as a visible academic event in the field of European Studies and in this regard we aim at developing it into a traditional conference series.
During the last year, the European Union has faced unprecedented challenges (Brexit, the rise of populism, the devaluation of EU-USA relations) which have represented both a test and an alarm sign for future threats.
These challenges have shifted the ordinary political and economic paradigms and have created a new state of affairs for the EU, as well as for its partners. Therefore, new policies are required to help address the urgent economic, political and social challenges.
Current strategies are being questioned while new perspectives of the European and global economy are emerging
