A two and half days Colloquium focused on: - Fundamentals and state of the art in fire safety in aeronautics - New issues for fire safety in aeronautics - AircraftFire and beyond: Discussion panel on follow-up activities for fire safety in aviation. This colloquium brings together interested people from science (students and researchers from academia and research centres), from industry (engineers, aircraftdesigners, parts manufacturers,...) and professionals from or related to public services, who are working in the field of fire safety in aeronautics. The Context: For 20 years, the fire threat in aeronautics has been drastically reduced. [read more]
The EU project 'Climate for Culture' will come to an end this year after five years of successful research cooperation. We would therefore like to invite you to the presentation of the final results of our research work at Munich's beautiful Munich Residenz, the former royal palace of the Bavarian monarchs. A multidisciplinary team of 27 partners from 14 countries has investigated the impact of climate change on historic buildings and their collections in Europe and the Mediterranean region. The main innovation has been to couple for the first time high resolution climate modeling with whole building simulation tools in order to predict better the influence of the changing outdoor climate on the indoor and microclimate in historic buildings until 2100 and to assess the damage potential in various climate zones (www.climateforculture.

In the frame of the EU sustainable energy week (23-27 June 2014) the MILESECURE-2050 project presented its preliminary results to 60 EU decision-makers and stakeholders on 25 June 2014 at ENEA Brussels headquarter. Both techno-economic and socio-cultural aspects of low carbon society and EU energy security of supply were addressed using quantitative and qualitative approaches. They dealt with trends and scenarios as well as with the human factor in energy transition. For more information about MILESECURE-2050, please contact Patrizia Lombardi at Politecnico di Torino (Patrizia.Lombardi at polito.it) or Domenico Rossetti di Valdalbero (Domenico. [read more]

If no further action is taken and global temperature increases by 3.5°C, climate damages in the EU could amount to at least €190 billion, a net welfare loss of 1.8% of its current GDP. Several weather-related extremes could roughly double their average frequency. As a consequence, heat-related deaths could reach about 200 000, the cost of river flood damages could exceed €10 billion and 8000 km2 of forest could burn in southern Europe. The number of people affected by droughts could increase by a factor of seven and coastal damage, due to sea-level rise, could more than triple. [read more]

Smart@fire is a groundbreaking project to encourage companies and researchers and provide them with financial means to develop Innovative ICT Solutions that better protect firefighters and help prevent accidents,and to integrate them into Smart Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). For this, Smart@fire employs a unique and novel method of innovative procurement known as pre-commercial procurement (PCP). The consortium of fire brigade procurers is now looking for new smart ICT based communication/localisation solutions to enable safer fire fighting. A call for tenders has been opened. An information session will be held on July 1st in Brussels in which juridical, technological and functional aspects of the tender will be covered. [read more]
