ILUCIDARE Evening and Networking Event

Field: Cultural Heritage and Cultural Diplomacy
Date: 6 February 2019
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Organizer: ILUCIDARE

You are kindly invited to join the project consortium at an evening event to celebrate the start of ILUCIDARE, a large-scale project dedicated to cultural heritage-led innovation and diplomacy. The event will be followed by a networking reception.

ILUCIDARE is a three-year project supported by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union to promote and leverage cultural heritage-led innovation and diplomacy thanks to an international community of practitioners in Europe and beyond.

The project will enable the exchanges of best practices, knowledge transfer, skills development and cross-fertilization within its global network through:

4 special ILUCIDARE Europa Nostra awards
3 international events for creative entrepreneurship
online training (MOOC), academic training courses and onsite capacity buildings in 12 locations in Europe, South-East Europe, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The leading partners are: University of Leuven (BE): Europa Nostra (NL), KEA European Affairs (BE), International Cultural Centre (PL), World Monuments Fund Spain (ES), Cultural Heritage without Borders - Kosovo (XK), University of Cuenca (EC), IMEC (BE).

Science Week at the European Parliament

Field: Science
Dates: 5-7 February 2019
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Organizer: Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA)

The "Science Week at the European Parliament" will combine the "Brussels Week" of the MEP-scientist pairing scheme (5-7 February 2019), the JRC "Science Meets Parliaments" event (6-7 February 2019), and a STOA event with the ERC on 7 February 2019. The essence of these events is to strengthen the structured dialogue between scientists and policy-makers, with the aim to raise awareness about politically relevant, cutting-edge scientific issues and about the importance of science for evidence-informed policy-making.

During the "Brussels Week", paired scientists will have an opportunity to follow their MEP counterparts in their daily political activities, and gain an understanding of the EU science, technology and research policy framework, including, in particular, EP work in this area. Your visit will include the following activities:

attending various meetings with MEPs, EP staff and science journalists, and presenting your research work and outcomes;

receiving an introduction to the work of the EP, by the MEP and his/her assistants, as well as by EP officials (STOA, other staff of the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), committee secretariats etc.);

participating in "pitching sessions" between science journalists and scientists, organised by STOA's new European Science-Media Hub (ESMH);

when not attending meetings organised by STOA, the scientists will be invited to "shadow" their MEP to various political group or other meetings, on the basis of the MEP's availability;

a last meeting, attended by scientists, MEPs or their assistants, and STOA officials, is to assess the week and identify its positive aspects, as well as elements for improvement.

Science meets Parliaments

In order to promote a culture of evidence-informed policy making, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission together with the European Parliament's Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) launched the Science Meets Parliaments initiative at the European Parliament in Brussels in 2015. The objective of the initiative is to build closer links between scientists and policy-makers at EU, national and regional levels and enhance the role of science in policy through regular dialogue with decision-makers. This year the event will discuss how science can play a bigger role in 21st century policy making. The event offers a series of discussions ranging from how artificial intelligence may impact our lives to building resilient societies and engaging citizens in decision-making. It will be accompanied by an exhibition featuring the contribution of science to making sound and successful public policies which directly benefit our lives.

Field: Urban Planning
Dates: 12-13 February 2019
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Organizer: JPI Urban Europe

The fourth JPI Urban Europe policy conference has the main objective of launching the updated Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA2.0) and providing a platform for discussion and exchange on urban change.

Join in with practitioners and urban policy makers, researchers, European institutions and organizations in discussions and networks. Listen to city guides and describe how experimentation, socio-technical innovation, and stakeholder engagement can play an important role in local urban development strategies. Use your own knowledge and experience in interactive break-out sessions with other participants.

Workshop "New Developments in Industrial Biocatalysis"

Field: Biotechnololgy
Date: 14 February 2019
Location: Frankfurt a.M.
Organizer: Robox and Carbazymes

The workshop "New developments in Industrial Biocatalysis" will take place on February 14 2019 in Frankfurt Main and will explore the state of the art in industrial biocatalysis using the new technologies developed in the Horizon 2020 projects ROBOX and CARBAZYMES.

The project ROBOX ("Expanding the Industrial Use of Robust Oxidative Biocatalysts for the Conversion and Production of Alcohols") has demonstrated the techno-economic feasibility of oxidative biocatalysts using four oxidative enzymes, which are currently used primarily in the pharmaceutical sector is to achieve a broader industrial application in markets with higher volumes and lower product prices.

In addition to oxidative biocatalysts, C-C bond formation reactions are of central importance in industrial organic synthesis to produce new molecules that are readily available from readily available materials. Although biocatalytic carbolation processes have promising potential, they remain largely unexplored due to a number of technical hurdles. The goal of the CARBAZYMES project ("Sustainable Industrial Processes Based on a C-C Bond-Forming Enzyme Platform") is the biocatalytic synthesis of products on an industrial scale using a broad platform of C-C bond forming enzyme

There is the possibility to participate in a networking event.
