64. Events - Clean Air Forum - 16-17 November 2017, Paris, France

The European Clean Air Forum will provide a basis for structured dialogues, exchange of knowledge and good practices, and enhance capacity of relevant stakeholders to improve air quality. It aims to reflect on the development of policies, projects and programmes in the context of air pollution and air quality, and facilitate the implementation of European, national and local air policies.The Clean Air Forum will focus on three themes: air quality in cities; agriculture and air quality and clean air business opportunities. The conference itself will thus bring together experts on the above topics as well as decision-makers and stakeholders in a two-day conference. In this occasion, information will be spread about: the H2020 funded projects LOWBRASYS - on particle emissions from brakes and their reduction - PEMS4NANO, Sureal23 and DOWN2TEN - on understanding and measurement of particles below the current 23 nanometres and development of a PEMS system; and on the two RTD Horizon Prizes for Retrofit and Clean Engine of the Future.

66. Events - Strategies for enhancing climate adaptation in European cities and their infrastructures - 23 November 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Preliminary results of the Horizon 2020 project RESIN (Resilient cities and infrastructures) will be discussed. In a panel setting with participation of DG Research, a city representative, researchers and eminent members of the scientific advisory group, the policy relevance of RESIN outcomes will be investigated. Topics to be discussed include a European city climate risk typology, standardized climate risk assessments for European cities, the role of standardization in urban adaptation in general, and co-creation in urban adaptation. The RESIN project focuses on the integration of critical infrastructure within the overall adaptation of cities to climate change in Europe. [read more]

67. International Workshop on Computational and Theoretical Nanoscience - 30 November - 1 December 2017, Madrid, Spain

IMDEA Nanociencia is delighted to announce the launching of the International Workshop Series, a set of workshops that will be held in the facilities of IMDEA Nanociencia every 3-6 months with a duration of 1-2 days. The aim of the workshop is to provide an insight to the latest investigations, foster/strengthen research collaborations in this field, and to exchange knowledge in an active manner. The workshop also brings the opportunity both to experienced and early-stage researchers to listen to high-level advances in a specific topic. The first workshop of the series, entitled “Computational and Theoretical Nanoscience”, will take place on the 30th Nov. [read more]

68. Research Headlines - A breath of fresh air for concentrated solar power

By directing sunlight from a large surface towards a much smaller one, concentrated solar power (CSP) plants can produce temperatures of more than 1000°C. Better heat transfer fluids are needed to capture this bounty. EU-funded researchers have developed a solution involving ceramic particles suspended in air. [read more]

69. Research Headlines - An efficient test for harmful chemicals in consumer products

Brominated organic chemicals, man-made chemical compounds added to many consumer products to make them less flammable, have raised numerous health and environmental concerns in recent years. An EU-funded project is evaluating a commercially ready tool to test for the presence of these harmful substances and prevent them from affecting ecosystems and human health. [read more]

70. Research Headlines - Better data flows to reduce water use

In an effort to reduce agricultural pressure on water resources - the sector accounts for up to 80 % of water use in some parts of the EU, researchers are on a mission to improve on-farm irrigation management. More precise land-surface data will make soil-water content estimates more accurate and reduce water use. [read more]
