The EURL for Mycotoxins workshop will inform the participants about the activities carried out by the EURL-Mycotoxins in 2016 and will discuss the prospects for 2017.
NER 300 is one of the world’s largest funding programmes for highly innovative low-carbon energy demonstration projects, although it is not funded by the EU budget but by resources coming from the EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS). The programme is conceived as a catalyst for the demonstration of environmentally safe carbon capture and storage (CCS) and innovative renewable energy (RES) technologies on a commercial scale within the European Union. The programme (about EUR 2.1 billion) funds 38 projects in 19 EU countries.
The GENTLE (Graduate and Executive Nuclear Training and Lifelong Education) project brings together leading European academic and research institutions with the goal to set up an executive learning programme, strongly supported by industry stakeholders. In this 6 week course you will learn the physics behind nuclear science, how to gain energy from nuclear fission, how nuclear reactors operate safely, and the life cycle of nuclear fuel: from mining to disposal. In the last part of the course, we will focus on what matters most in the public debate: the economic and social impact of nuclear energy but also the future of energy systems.
Critical Infrastructures (CIs) provide essential goods and services for modern society; they are highly integrated and have growing mutual dependencies. Recent natural events have shown that cascading failures of CIs have the potential for multi-infrastructure collapse and widespread societal and economic consequences.
JRC Karlsruhe has the pleasure to organise the HOTLAB 2016 Conference, the 53rd Annual meeting on 'hot' laboratories and remote handling in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). HOTLAB 2016 will take place at the Leonardo Hotel Karlsruhe, Germany on October 2-6, 2016.
The JRC Annual Conference 2016 will focus on the importance of human capital for the prosperity of regions and cities.
This is a technical workshop with hands-on training exercises, which will introduce the global air quality scenario screening tool TM5-FASST to users interested in the evaluation of global and regional pollutant emission scenarios, particularly focusing on the concentrations of air pollutants and their impacts on human health and ecosystems.
Held once every four years, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Conservation Congress brings together several thousand leaders and decision-makers from government, civil society, indigenous peoples, business, and academia, with the goal of conserving the environment and harnessing the solutions nature offers to global challenges.
The JOPRAD consortium would like to invite you to its Mid-Term Workshop that will be held on the 7- 8th September 2016 at the Congress Centre, Prague, Czech Republic. The Mid-Term Workshop will enable “programme owners” and “programme managers” in EU Member-States to evaluate the feasibility and the added-value of the implementation of Joint Programming at European level. Further details are also available on the JOPRAD website.
Europe is now witnessing a growing movement of policy labs and other public innovation teams at EU, national, regional and local levels of governance. Their experimental, creative and citizen-centred approaches are changing the ways policies are shaped and delivered, putting forward alternative solutions in a time when our institutions require more robust and adaptable responses to complex situations.
