The process industry is vital to Europe’s economy, but it is highly dependent on resources. 10 EU research and innovation projects are developing novel methods and enabling technologies to meet Europe’s ambitious environmental objectives.Read more
The aim of REinEU2016 is to emphasise and discuss the role of research and innovation in the sustainable development of the European economy and the reindustrialisation of Europe.
The conference will focus on the more traditional manufacturing sectors, and how these can remain competitive.
Closer European cooperation is vital to achieving a Smart Industry and to remain on a competitive footing with China and the US.
At Industrial Technologies (Amsterdam, 24-26 June 2016), the European industry formulated its recommendations to accelerate a 4th industrial revolution in Europe.
The workshop took place in Brussels on 12 April 2016. The aim was to discuss the obstacles that prevent the implementation of synergies between different types of funding, and explore ways to facilitate regional cooperation in the field of Key Enabling Technologies.
The event gathered more than 100 participants from national and regional authorities and from industry and research.
The proceedings and presentations can be downloaded from the workshop webpage
The info day will cover the following PPPs : Factories of the Future, Energy-efficient Buildings, Sustainable Process Industry and European Green Vehicles Initiative. Support will be given for the preparation of proposals for the 2017 calls.More information & Registration
The combination of various Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) brings the highest benefits to innovation in health. The aim of the workshop is to present funding opportunities in Horizon 2020 and the strategic research agenda for 2018-2020 and beyond.Registration and information
Metrology is the science of measurements. It enables technological innovations and progress and is needed to ensure quality and safety. A public consultation gives you the opportunity to provide your view on the state of play of the European metrology research system. It will run until 7 October 2016.
Materials characterisation is one of the key pillars supporting and linking research and market introduction.
The European Materials Characterisation Cluster (EMCC) has been launched to exploit synergies and maximise the impact from H2020 characterisation financing and other investments and innovation programmes at national and regional level.
The EMCC will act as coordination platform in the area of nanotechnology and advanced materials characterisation actions.
Mapping of current characterisation capabilities, activities and needs is ongoing. In particular, a survey has been run to collect views on what characterisation developments are required in order to respond to the application needs of European industry.
This will lay the groundwork for elaboration of an EMCC Characterisation Needs Study that will provide input to a European Roadmap on Characterisation.
An EMCC workshop will be held at the Industrial Technologies conference in Amsterdam on 24th June 2016.
Horizon 2020 supports the strengthening of Europe’s industrial base through research and innovation activities. Since 2014 a number of interesting projects have been launched that will develop innovative solutions to address societal challenges in the several areas.
