This conference will bring together key policymakers from across Whitehall, the devolved administrations and local authorities with stakeholders from the UK research community to discuss ways of improving the use of research to inform policymaking. It comes as the next Research Excellence Framework cycle is expected to increase the weight of the 'impact' criteria from 20 to 25% and follows REF 2014 results which showed "informing government policy" was the most common type of impact, followed by "supporting Parliamentary scrutiny".

REGATEC 2017 has a technical and industrial focus and is directed towards microbial and thermochemical conversion of biomass and waste to biomethane, Power-to-gas, biomass gasification for CHP production, and cryogenic upgrading/liquefaction [read more]
CommBeBiz's annual event, funded by the EU, is designed to challenge, support and inform researchers on their quest to innovate in the commercial, social and policy arenas. Researchers receiving EU public funding have to demonstrate the value they have added to society and commerce from the investment made in them. Through keynote speakers and workshops, this event will enhance key skills (e.g. RRI, social media, IPR, PR, funding) needed to drive the innovation process, & provide valuable networking opportunities and insights into innovation success stories and stumbling blocks, in bringing Bioeconomy Research to life.

EuroNanoForum 2017 will focus on how nano and materials technologies can strengthen competitiveness across all European industries. The discussion will also extend to framework conditions such as education, standards, regulations, IPR and safety issues, as well as entrepreneurship and industrial policy. The programme will include sessions on finance and funding through European and National programmes, in particular Horizon 2020, smart specialisation and public-private partnership initiatives. The event is organised under the auspices of the Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union. [read more]
Our progressive understanding of mechanisms involved in acute and chronic liver diseases has led to important improvements in the current management of these diseases. Basic research in the field of liver- development, cancer, viral infections, fibrosis, and regeneration is important to warrant further insight into the molecular and cellular processes implicated in order to develop novel detection methods and therapies. This meeting will bring together international scientists working in the field of liver disease. The meeting will provide a unique opportunity to get updated on and discuss new studies in the field of basic liver research. [read more]
The OECD's biennial publication of the Science, Technology and Industry Outlook "OECD STI Outlook" reviews key global trends in science, technology and innovation (STI) policies and performance in OECD countries and other major international economies. Through comparative analysis, it informs policy makers about recent and anticipated changes in global patterns of STI and their possible implications for national science and innovation policies.Since 2015 the OECD and the European Commission pursue a joint approach in support of innovation policy through their "International Survey on Science, Technology and Innovation Policies".
