European Guide and recommendations for the combined funding of large scale RDI initiatives
14 December 2016, Brussels, Belgium
Large-Scale Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) Initiatives also known as LSIs are increasingly playing a vital role across Europe for the development and commercialisation of new novel products and services.
The EU-GREAT! project is exploring the best practices and barriers faced by stakeholders of LSIs in combining funds from different public and private sources.
This Workshop aims at disseminating the main lessons learnt during the project implementation as well as key recommendations for improving the administrative and policy frameworks of public-private funding instruments to ease the combination of funding and stimulate investments.

3rd HBP School - Future Neuroscience - The Multiscale Brain: From Genes to Behaviour
28 November - 4 December 2016, Obergurgl, Austria
The 3rd HBP School is jointly organised by the Human Brain Project (HBP) and the Allen Institute for Brain Science (AI) and offers a comprehensive programme covering all aspects of neuroscience relevant to the HBP research programme.
Understanding the brain requires an integrated understanding of different scales of organisation spanning genes, channels, cells, microcircuits, brain regions and their roles in behaviour from perception to action in different states including wakefulness and sleep.
This course will take the student through the latest data, models and techniques for investigating the different levels of the brain and through the process of putting the pieces together to derive new insights and theories.
Workshops each day will guide the student with hands-on experience with the state-of-the-art tools and techniques for neuroinformatics, analysis, modelling and simulation.
The school offers ample opportunities for scientific discussions between students and faculty during dedicated discussion sessions, tutorials and social events.
The application deadline is 7 September 2016.
Participation in the 3rd HBP School 2016 is open to advanced master students, postgraduate students and young researchers from within HBP as well as to the external commmunity. Up to 40 participants will be selected from a competitive application process based on pre-defined criteria. Abstracts for presenting the applicants' own work are particularly welcome. Applications from young female investigators are highly encouraged.
There is no registration fee.
Factories of the Future – Making Innovation Happen
1 December 2016, Brussels, Belgium
Since its launch in 2010, the EU's Factories of the Future partnership has been responsible for the launch of 248 pre-competitive projects which are transforming manufacturing.
The event is focused on the successful industrial exploitation of results from these projects. This event will include ‘Pitch’ sessions which will focus on providing short and to-the-point presentations (‘pitches’) about innovative manufacturing technologies and approaches by projects.
Factories of the Future - Making Innovation Happen is also an excellent opportunity for interested organisations to connect with some of Europe’s leading industrial companies and research organisations.
