The second biennial ‘European Climate Change Adaptation Conference’ will be hosted in Copenhagen in 2015. More than 1000 participants are expected to attend this event. The conference will offer a unique platform for researchers, policy makers, and businesses to share new research results, novel policy developments, and practical implementation experiences regarding climate change impacts and adaptation, as well as highlight opportunities for business innovations aimed at supporting the transition to low carbon societies. It will also show how climate change adaptation in Europe can contribute to job creation and other societal benefits. Some key note speakers: Kirsten Brosbøl; The Danish Minister of the EnvironmentKurt Vandenberghe; European CommissionHans Bruyninckx; European Environment AgencyMorten Kabell; Mayor for Technical and Environmental Affairs, City of CopenhagenScientific Programme of the conference.

Innovative machine tool 'joints' developed in the EU-funded PoPJim project can tune-out the vibrations that cause material and productivity losses. Manufacturers can expect a long-sought competitive edge as the technology moves towards commercialisation in the coming years. Testing has already shown a two to three-fold productivity boost for certain tooling jobs. [read more]

Scientists at the NEIKER-Tecnalia Basque Institute for Agricultural Research and Development have studied the genetic structure of Phytophthora infestans — responsible for potato blight — and have identified the existence of the Blue13 (13_A2) genotype for the first time in Spain. The identification has been carried out by means of genotyping using micro-satellite markers (SSR). The discovery stems from the results obtained in the PhD thesis by the agricultural engineer Néstor Alor. [read more]
A bluefin tuna tagged by AZTI researchers and released off the coast of the Basque Country (Bay of Biscay) in August 2007 has recently been recaptured in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Malta, after having crossed the Atlantic twice, spending the winter on the North American coast and the summer on the European coast. The animal then went to the Mediterranean, where it was fished at the age of eight years, having reached its reproductive capacity. [read more]
