12 Dec 2018 at 4:00pm
Detectors at the accelerators of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) help answer big questions about the Universe and support advances in fields such as medical technology. An EU-funded project is fostering collaboration on detector development to boost such scientific progress.
Events - Successful R&I in Europe 2019 - 10th European Networking Event - 14-1...
10 Dec 2018 at 4:00pm
For the tenth time, the conference invites researchers and entrepreneurs from North Rhine-Westphalia and regions in Europe to find new European research and innovation (R&I) partners for Horizon 2020 projects.
The series of events has been a great success with over 2600 participants since 2009. The networking event will be structured in parallel workshops focussing on seven topics:
• Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
• Nanotechnology, Materials and Manufacturing (NMM)
• Circular Economy
• Life Sciences
• Innovative Public Procurement (PCP/PPI)
Giving a short presentation (ideas and/or results) or finding a partner by talking to decision-makers opens doors for new research and innovation projects in Europe with a focus on Horizon 2020.

Events - Energy Transition ? the Pathway Towards a Low?Carbon Europe - 27 Nov...
12 Nov 2018 at 4:00pm
We know that the world needs a climate friendly energy system that can provide power for more people than we are now, and create less emission than today. This changes need to happen so fast that it historically will be equal to a revolution.
However, we must find out what the different alternatives for energy mixes will be, and how we will get there. This conference will represent the possibility to assess the current state of implementation and debate about the best possible future steps towards an integrated climate friendly energy system.
In particular, we expect to focus on two relevant aspects. The integrated energy system we might see in the future, and how consumers can be included in this system
