Science Café with Tomáš Jungwirth

23 October 2018, Brussels, Belgium

Tomáš Jungwirth is a recognized scientist in the field of Spintronics that is behind the virtually unlimited data storage on the internet. The fields of expertise of Tomáš Jungwirth are condensed matter physics, materials science, electronic properties of nanostructures, quantum Hall effects, ferromagnetic, and antiferromagnetic spintronic devices.

Recently, Tomáš Jungwirth has contributed to discoveries of new magnetic materials potentially suitable in ultrafast memories for digital or neuromorphic computing. In 2011 he was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant in the field of spintronics - Spintronics based on relativistic phenomena in systems with zero magnetic moment.

He is a member of the ERC Scientific Council and a member of the Research and Development Council of the Government of the Czech Republic. In 2004 Tomáš Jungwirth was appointed a Professor-Chair at the University of Nottingham, UK and in 2007 a Head of the Department of Spintronics and Nanoelectronics of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague.

Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.

Sustainable and circular Bioeconomy, the European way

22 October 2018, Brussels, Belgium

 

The emerging bioeconomy is moving from research niche to market norm and Europe needs to maintain its current global leadership.

The conference will focus on the need to have a sustainable and circular bioeconomy to enhance the transition in a changed EU policy context and towards a new environmental, social and economic reality. It will also set the scene for the start of the discussion about synergetic actions across different priority areas:

  • support strategic research and innovation, and strengthen support for education and training,
  • upscale the bio-based sectors, mobilise investments, support the creation of markets, develop better monitoring,
  • encourage the adoption, update and coherence of national and regional Bioeconomy Strategies throughout Europe with citizens engagement,
  • strengthen the understanding and resilience of land and sea ecosystems,
  • monitoring and assessment of bioeconomy development

During the event, a  bioeconomy corner will showcase tangible bio-based products

Registration
 on "first come first served" basis is open.

Please register by 15 October 2018.

MyNewGut R&I project - Final Conference

18 October 2018, Brussels, Belgium

EUFIC, together with all partners of the MyNewGut project, is organising a final conference to present the results of this five-year EU funded project and provide an input on how the human gut microbiota and its genome (microbiome) influence obesity, behavioural - and lifestyle-related disorders.

The MyNewGut project – which falls under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme, - brings together 30 partners from 15 different countries and aimed to identify specific dietary strategies to improve the long-term health of the population.

Why is it relevant for research and innovation?

Emerging evidence indicates that the gut microbiome contributes to our ability to extract energy from the diet and influences development and function of the immune, endocrine and nervous systems, which regulate energy balance and behaviour. This has led to hypothesize that developing microbiome-based dietary interventions can be cost-effective measures to prevent diet-related and behavioural disorders.
