Final Conference of the EU-funded SusFuelCat FP7-Project Utilizing biomass as a renewable energy source is an important step for reducing Europe‘s dependence on fossil fuels and decreasing greenhouse gases. Biomass can serve as a base material for energy carriers like hydrogen. One advantage that hydrogen offers over fossil fuels is that when combusted it produces only water vapour instead of CO2. The EU research project SusFuelCat focuses on the production of hydrogen based on aqueous phase reforming (APR). Catalysts are the key components here and are responsible for efficiently converting biomass into hydrogen. [read more]

The ICTurkey 2016 International Brokerage will bring together 300 participants from Europe and Turkey, coming from both research and industrial communities in the ICT domain. This will not only give you the unique opportunity to connect with Turkish and European researchers to discuss ICT project ideas, but also to talk to TUBITAK H2020 representatives (and National Contact Points) to get first-hand information about the upcoming H2020 ICT calls. The event will target five calls of the Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) and Cross-cutting Activities themes of H2020: • IoT • Big Data • Robotics • Photonics • Micro- and Nano-electronics [read more]
This new conference aims to bring together scientists working in the fields of molecular immunology, functional genomics and immune-mediated disease genetics to expedite the journey from genetic association to mechanistic understanding and patient benefit through new insights into disease and novel therapeutics. Next generation sequencing has accelerated the discovery of highly penetrant causal variants in diverse primary immune deficiencies, providing insight into the non-redundant functions of the affected genes and pathways in human immunity. In parallel, the application of GWAS has been arguably most successful in immune-related traits, such that together we now have evidence of the role of genetic variation in susceptibility to various immune diseases across the prevalence spectrum.

Crops & Chemicals Europe provides unique access to formulation scientists, adjuvant suppliers and innovators across the agrochemical industry. Addressing novel formulation techniques and advances such as microencapsulation, reducing spray drift and research to demonstrate how to cross the leaf surface barrier. We also have sessions exploring plant protection products regulation and research that looks into the R&D of biostimulant products. [read more]
The EU-funded project RESOLVE is developing technologies for electric-powered light four wheelers that extend range and reduce cost. This could tempt more car drivers to make the switch to these smaller, less polluting alternatives for daily urban commutes. [read more]
Vaccines R&D Summit 2017 has the goal to fill the prevailing gaps in transformation of the science of hope to promptly serve solutions to all in need. Vaccines R&D Summit 2017 will have an anticipated participation of 150-200 delegates from around the world to discuss the conference goal. [read more]
These are exciting times for Neurology. New diseases are being defined, new procedures are developed and introduced in clinical practice resulting in more accurate diagnosis, complex disease mechanisms are more and more unravelled, and current treatment options are extending. Parallel to all these developments also new challenges are encountered in the search for understanding, preserving and repairing the nervous system. These and other topics will be addressed by leading international experts in the different neurological fields. And all will take place in a magnificent town! [read more]
The International Conferences on Research Infrastructures (ICRI) are a well established international forum encouraging global cooperation and providing a unique opportunity to share views on matters of international relevance in the Research Infrastructures' domain.The forthcoming ICRI 2016 conference, which will take place in Cape Town (South Africa) from 3 to 5 October 2016, is co-organised by the South African Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the European Commission.Building on the conclusions of previous ICRIs and the ongoing debates on Research Infrastructures in international fora such as the Group of Senior Officials (GSO) and the OECD-Global Science Forum (GSF), a more structured approach to collaboration on global Research Infrastructures will be discussed with the international community, underlining the strategic importance of Research Infrastructures and exploring their role as a tool for Science Diplomacy.

A weakened immune system makes HIV-positive women particularly vulnerable to persistent human papillomavirus (HPV) infections, which can lead to cervical cancer. With patchy screening, cervical cancer rates in Africa are especially high. Simple HPV screening could help save lives, an EU-funded project found. [read more]
