Event is focused on the latest research findings on Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB), EU-own taxes, a sustainable tax collection, what defines equal, socially and environmentally sustainable taxation and more and organized by Horizon 2020 research project FairTax. The FairTax research project produces recommendations on how fair and sustainable taxation and social policy reforms can increase the economic stability of EU member states, promote economic equality and security, enhance coordination and harmonization of tax, social inclusion, environmental, legitimacy, and compliance measures, support deepening of the European Monetary Union, and expand the EU’s own-source revenue bases.

Delegates at this timely seminar will discuss the future of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) - focusing on how the next REF will be structured and on the funding allocation. It has been scheduled to follow the Government-commissioned review of the REF being undertaken by Lord Stern, which is due to report in the summer. Planned sessions examine key elements of the review, including how to promote and support excellence, reduce administrative burden, increase the use of metrics, and improve the process of peer review. The agenda will also look at proposals for regular 'mini REFs' or a system of ongoing impact assessment using metrics in order to support quality on an ongoing basis and identify areas of emerging excellence.

A fast, accurate and easy-to-use test for detecting high explosives, toxic chemicals and other small molecules is providing security services with a potentially life-saving tool in the fight against terrorism. Developed by EU-funded researchers, the innovative detection system has undergone successful field trials and is ready for widespread deployment. [read more]
New materials can make aircraft greener and quieter. But how would these planes behave in an emergency water landing? An EU-funded project's experiments and computer simulation tools are contributing to better understanding of the complicated phenomena involved in developing even safer and more cost-effective designs.

International experts from clinical science, basic research and epidemiological studies are brought together with a joint focus on long term consequences of early nutrition and lifestyle factors on obesity and related disorders. Partners of the EU funded project EarlyNutrition are happy to share their research approaches and results with colleagues from all over the world. This conference builds on our preceding and very successful international conferences in Munich in 2010 and 2014 where 500-600 participants joined for a comprehensive exchange of latest research findings.

Many human achievements, from planning and executing architecture plans to performing surgeries, piano duets and tangoes, are the result of collaboration. According to Prof. Sebanz, teamwork is key for the advancement of human civilisation and heavily relies on joint actions. These occur whenever two or more people interact with one another to coordinate a particular action in space and time, in order to accomplish a shared goal. [read more]

In war, there are rules - but sometimes countries decide that they don't apply. Colonial campaigns, for example, were often seen as exceptions. EU-funded research is studying several fought over a century ago. Ancient history? Hardly. Many aspects of this troubled past remain relevant to current debates as the world attempts to tackle terrorism. [read more]
Alternative energy sources are gradually replacing fossil fuels, but can oil be replaced in the production of the plastics we all use in our daily lives? Innovative technologies are replacing oil with vegetable components to make plastics with fascinating properties. [read more]
Whilst technology-driven innovation has been a fundamental contributor to the prosperity of Europe, the recognition is emerging that design-driven, non-technological innovation is now also a route to competitiveness. The economic significance of design is based on its potential as an enabler to create reliable, desirable, user-driven products and services that are ecologically and economically responsible. Design is not just about the way things look, it is also about the way they work. Design creates value and contributes to competitiveness, prosperity, and well-being in Europe. [read more]
