Events - FISA 2019 and EURADWASTE '19 - 4-7 June 2019, Pitesti, Romania
13 Feb 2019 at 4:00pm
The European Commission is co-organising the FISA 2019 and EURADWASTE '19 conferences with the Ministry of Research and Innovation of Romania and the Institute for Nuclear Research (RATEN ICN) under the auspices of the Romanian Presidency of the EU in 2019.
The event will be held on 4 to 7 June 2019, in Pitesti, in Romania. The previous conferences were organised in October 2013, in Vilnius, together with the Lithuanian Presidency. FISA 2019 and EURADWASTE '19 conferences expect to attract up to 500 participants.
The overall objective is:
• To present progress and key achievements of some 90 projects carried out, since the previous conference edition in 2013, as part of the 7th and Horizon 2020 Euratom Research and Training Framework Programmes (FP)
• To stimulate discussions on the state of play of R&D, key challenges addressed at national, European and international levels on Research and Innovation policies, synergies and partnerships benefitting research and innovation programmes, and future perspectives.
FISA 2019 and EURADWASTE ’19 conferences will address and engage with all relevant stakeholders involved: research and training organisations, academia, industry, technology platforms, European fora and European civil society, and International Organisations. The enclosed structure of the programme includes parallel & poster sessions and thematic workshops. Each thematic session will be concluded by a panel discussion.
Events - NUGENIA FORUM 2019 - 13-15 March 2019, Paris, France
13 Feb 2019 at 4:00pm
The NUGENIA Forum 2019 will be held on 13-15 March 2019 at the Cité Universitaire of Paris, France. It will be devoted to discussions on the technical and scientific milestones to be tackled to ensure competitive, efficient and safe production of low CO2 electricity from GEN II, GEN III and SMR water-cooled nuclear power plants.
Technological innovation is fundamental to maintain a high level of safety and competitiveness and requires the establishment of a well-coordinated R&D&I programme at the European level, in close collaboration with international partners.

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.
