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.
2019 Infoday, Ensuring Excellent Research by Investing in Researchers Talents, Skills and Career Development
29 January 2019, Brussels, Belgium
Implementing the Human Resources Strategy to comply with art. 32 of the H2020 multi-beneficiary grant agreement
This INFO-DAY addresses 'newcomer' universities, research institutions and research funders investing in researchers’ talents, skills and career development by implementing the 40 principles of the 'European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (C&C)'.
It also addresses beneficiaries and potential applicants of H2020 contracts/projects who have to comply with article 32 stipulating the need to take measures to implement the European Charter and Code (C&C) for the benefit of all researchers and their institution.
It also brings forward policy issues related to skills and talent management in an Open Science environment closely linked to the European Framework for Research Careers.
Seven invited high-level speakers from different European research or funding institutions will evidence benefits and impact, showcase improved training opportunities, career development and talents and skills management in their respective institutions.
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.
GEMM Final Policy Conference
26 October 2018, Paris, France
The GEMM project (Growth, Equal Opportunities, Migration and Markets) is having its final policy conference in Paris on the 26th of October, CENTRE DE CONFERENCES EDOUARD VII - PARIS OPERA, 23 square Edouard VII, 75009 Paris, Sydney room.
The project delivers an assessment of labour market inequalities of migrants and minorities in Europe. We especially focus on highly skilled migrants to Europe, who do not always find jobs in which their skills are used most effectively. By understanding the drivers of these inequalities and determining how institutional factors account for differences between countries, we provide recommendations of great practical and policy relevance. We achieve our goals through using different research methods - experiments, in-depth interviews and statistical analyses of existing data - and through considering different determinants - individual, contextual and institutional. We are thus able to compare integration processes and outcomes over different countries in Europe, and highlight the factors that help to successfully integrate migrants and minorities in the host country labour market - to the benefit of both minorities and the majority population.
The policy event will concentrate on the body of policy-relevant work produced during the course of the project. For more information and project registration, please, contact Marco Mangiantini (GEMM project administrator): firstname.lastname@example.org.
