The 18th European Forum on Eco-Innovation will be held in Barcelona, from 20 to 21 May 2015.
The Forum will explore how to strengthen competitiveness and innovation, in particular of SMEs, through environmental labelling, management and information schemes.
As responsibles for the set up of the Environmental Technology Verification pilot programme, the JRC together with DG Environment will deliver the first official Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Statements to technology developers at the forum.
The JRC will also present ETV at the exhibition.
ICAPP 2015 will address advances in nuclear power plants in a broad sense, not only covering technological progress in reactors and associated nuclear fuel cycles, but also extending to broader applications of nuclear power, such a cogeneration and hybridization with over low-carbon power sources to displace fossil fuels in applications beyond electricity generation in the housing, transportation and industry sectors.
The EGU General Assembly 2015 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna!
The fundamental knowledge and the awareness gap which exists within many key policy areas is indeed a major barrier to the implementation of both EU policy, and technology. Although the importance of this issue is recognised, the investment of manpower and finances remains relatively small compared to the investments in technology development, which is often never implemented due to public discourse. Engaging the general public requires a better understanding and communication among the economic, political, social and scientific actors.
EWEA OFFSHORE, the world’s largest offshore wind energy conference and exhibition, is a biennial event that unites the whole of the wind energy value chain under one roof. This year the event will take place in Denmark, home to the world’s first ever commercial offshore wind farm and the second largest offshore wind market.
The ninth GeoTHERM will be taking place in its meanwhile successfully established form at 5th + 6th March 2015. Within eight years the combination of trade fair and congress has become Europe's leading event for geothermal energy. This is where the dynamics and quality standards of shallow and deep geothermal energy can enjoy a perfect setting. Our IET colleagues, Andreas Uihlein and Bergur Sigfusson, will be giving a presentation and promoting JRC's latest report "JRC Geothermal Energy Status Report 2014".
Following up on the mandate of the "European Science and Technology Network on Unconventional Hydrocarbon Extraction" and as announced during its launch event in July 2014, the two Working Groups will hold their first meetings.
The Wind Risk Management and Mitigation Conference, organized by the Haymarket Media Group Ltd will take place from 4th February to the 5th February 2015 at the etc.venues in London, United Kingdom. The conference will cover areas like Wind Risk Management And Mitigation.
On 27 January 2015, the Joint Research Centre is hosting a Round Table discussion on Scientific Support to Europe's Photovoltaic Manufacturing Industry.
