The 7th Future Conference: Wind & Maritime – the conference in the Northeast that connects wind energy and maritime industry – will identify market and technology trends in the sectors onshore and offshore wind energy, maritime industry and marine technology and bring together industry representatives, ranging from start-up to global player, in Rostock from 18 to 19 April 2018. Latest technological developments for the wind energy, new markets and growth areas, innovations in the maritime industry and marine technology will be some of the focal points addressed in twelve subject-specific forums. New within the context of sector coupling will be the conference’s focus on the use of renewable energies, e.g. in the field of electric mobility and start-ups in the wind energy sector. This aims to information exchange and networking enabling new business activities for the more than 300 awaited national and international participants.
The international conference “Earth Observation & Copernicus Technologies and Solutions for User Applications“ will take place on 19 April 2018 in Bochum, Germany. It will be held at the premises of the University of Applied Sciences Georg Agricola, Herner Straße 45, 44787 Bochum, Germany.
The conference will enable knowledge transfer between technology experts, service providers and manufacturers as well as users from selected application fields. In thematic workshops participants can exchange ideas on technology trends and project ideas, identify market demands and raise awareness towards the importance of Earth Observation and Copernicus technologies and their potential.
Application fields at the focus of the event will be:
- Energy/Renewable Energies
- Urban Monitoring/Smart Cities
- Maritime Technologies
- Copernicus App Lab: How linked Open Data facilitates mobile app development workflow
- Change Detection - Monitoring land use and land coverage
Further information and the link to register for the conference and a B2B matchmaking session are available here.
The NorthSEE project will organise an unique stakeholder workshop on ecological aspects within the (greater) North Sea region, which will take place on Wednesday 18 April 2018 at the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) at Texel in the Netherlands. Texel has an unique geographical location between the North Sea and the Wadden Sea where people live with the sea.
The Facility for Regional Policy Dialogue is organising a Technical Assistance Workshop on Integrated Maritime Policy and Blue Economy in Marseille, France from 15 to 17 April, under the European Neighbourhood Instrument.
The Architectural and Environmental Design (AED) is created to be a platform for all early career researchers, practitioners and students from all around the world, helping them to share ideas, and to expand networks for scholars.AED is an international conference that focuses on Sustainability and how it is approached by Architectural and Environmental Designs. AED engages with real life problems that affect the buildings on all scales, cities, and environment where it also discusses the built environment, and the factors that assist in shaping the built environment and how it affects our lives and our activities. IEREK for International Experts for Research Enrichment and Knowledge Exchange welcomes the abstract submissions to our Early Career conference.
The Mediterranean region is the world's leading tourist destination. In the summer season, due to the annual tourist wave, mediterranean islands host a far greater population. This is beneficial for the local economies, but it also puts a huge burden on the local infrastructures, especially for waste management systems.
The growing attention to the potential of sustainable tourism as a lever to promote circular economy is at the basis of the BLUEISLANDS project (ERDF Co-funding under the Interreg MED program). The project gathers 8 major and 55 smaller islands of the Mediterranean in a systematic effort to identify, address and mitigate the effect of the seasonal variation of waste generated on Mediterranean islands as an effect of tourism.
Participants are invited to join the lecture to learn more about what science and society are doing to understand the problem and to discuss what options there are to find a solution. Ask your questions to scientists and experts in the field and visit the Ocean Plastics Lab, a free exhibition on the Esplanade Solidarność 1980, outside the European Parliament.
This conference will discuss the important role of science and innovation to achieve a healthy and a plastic free ocean. With programmes such as Horizon 2020 the EU has the unique chance to take up the challenges of our time in a cross-sectoral and cross-border manner based on the knowledge and creativity of its excellent researchers and innovators.
