ERA-Can+ Canadian project partners are hosting a live webinar about research opportunities for Europeans to participate in programs offered by Mitacs, a national, not-for-profit organisation that designs and delivers research and training programmes. The webinar is open to European researchers, research managers, and representatives from universities, colleges, government agencies and the private sector. Canada’s Public Policy Forum and Universities Canada will host a webinar to introduce the ERA-Can+ project and Horizon 2020—the European Union’s current Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The second part of the webinar will feature Mitacs and explore its research opportunities open to Europeans. [read more]
This is a 3-day Hackathon event focused on experimenting with Smart Audio/Video formats, to come up with inspiring applications that create new TV experiences for the public or private domain, using Europeana content. A debate with interesting speakers and the pitches of the hacking teams ahead of the Award ceremony complement this exclusive event about creative re-use of digital cultural content. Hacking Culture Bootcamp is organized by the Europeana TV pilot of Europeana Space BPN Project. Learn more and view the full programme in the event website. Note that registration for hacking teams has closed but the event is open to the public who need only register for the debate for practical reasons. [read more]
Sarah McCormack is Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering at Trinity College in Dublin and specialises in solar and thermal energy storage. Chairing COST Action TU0802, she developed a well-knit interdisciplinary community in the area of energy storage systems. Six years after setting up the network, she is now an ERC Starting Grantee, developing new, efficient solar devices that store and use the energy that current systems in buildings and homes are wasting. She told us how leading a COST Action has helped her see the bigger picture in her ongoing research. [read more]
The Psychonomic Society is the home for scientists who study how the mind works. Members of the Society are experimental psychologists among whose numbers are some of the most distinguished researchers in the field. Many of us are concerned with the application of psychology to health, technology and education, and many of us use converging methods such as neuroscience and computational science to achieve our research goals. This international conference is one of several new initiatives being launched by the Psychonomic Society and it is already promising to be an exciting meeting as being collaborating with the Spanish Society for Experimental Psychology (SEPEX) and the European Society for Cognitive Psychology (ESCOP), to ensure that the best of European and North American Experimental Psychology will be on show.
