Scientific support for growth, jobs and sustainability: the example of the eco-industries
|Start Date:||May 15 2012|
|End Date:||May 15 2012|
The European Commission's Joint Research Centre is
organising a high-level conference on "Scientific support for growth, jobs and sustainability:
the example of the eco-industries" which will take place in Brussels in the European
Commission's Charlemagne Building on 15 May 2012.
The major characteristic of Europe's eco-industries is their diversity but also their potential and the need of additional scientific support. The type of activities range from high-tech products and complex services in renewable energy, energy efficiency and air quality control to mature and well established applications in recycling and water and waste treatment.
The main aim of the conference is to identify where scientific support is needed to strengthen Europe's eco-industries as a source of growth and jobs.
The conference is organised in five sessions:
Session 1: Science for enough clean water
Session 2: Science contributing for improving air quality.
Session 3: Waste management
Session 4: Renewables
Session 5: Energy efficiency
