A Scientific Roadmap for Projections of Global Change Impacts on Forests

Europe’s forests contribute substantially to human prosperity and well-being. Forests have been subject to intensive research for centuries. However, new developments such as climate change as well as other environmental and societal changes are challenging our current knowledge about sustainable management of forests. These challenges have been partly addressed by a number of past and ongoing research projects and COST Actions, but a synthesis of what we know and what we do not know regarding the future of forests is needed. This 2-day event will bring together a group of approximately 30 scientists to discuss the challenges and research needs for making projections about the future of Europe’s forests under climate and global change.

COST Action showcase

Ferroelectric and Multiferroic Electroceramics: Trends and Perspectives - COST Action MP0904 Showcase within Electroceramics XIV

Electroceramics materials and applications are one of the major research topics in the field of materials science. The aim of Electroceramics XIV is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for scientists of various theoretical and experimental areas, involved in fundamental as well in applied research or in industrial implementation of such materials in multifunctional devices. The scientific programme includes the full-day COST Action MP0904 Showcase: Ferroelectric and Multiferroic Electroceramics: Trends and Perspectives.

Transdisciplinary strategic event

Bridging the Gap between Science and Art

The main objective of this COST strategic transdisciplinary event is to highlight the creative and emotional processes behind any outstanding scientific discovery similar to those underlying artistic productions and therefore render a scientific career more appealing for undergraduate students considering pursuing one. There is a strong parallelism between scientists and artists when it comes to the creation of new scientific and artistic ideas. Nowadays, more than ever, we need creative scientists and artists to share their ideas and collaborate in order to boost Europe’s competitiveness and innovation potential.

Food Waste in the European Food Supply Chain: Challenges and Opportunities

The problem of food wastage has attracted considerable public attention in recent years, as did the resolution adopted on the subject by the European Parliament on 19 January 2012 (2011/2175(INI). Declaring 2014 the European Year against Food Waste, as proposed by the European Parliament, will not only give strong support to the reduction of food waste, but also raise public awareness on the issue in which COST is playing a significant role in the research arena by connecting high quality scientific communities throughout Europe and worldwide, however COST, also facilitates the information flow between researchers, policy makers, regulatory bodies, decision makers and industry. Consequently, a strategic activity on Food Waste is a natural role for COST.

Epigenetics: From Bench To Bedside

Given that epigenetics is currently recognized as one of the most exciting fields of modern science, there is an urgent need for considering a role for the EU research community with respect to this new and emerging discipline of biology which, notably, is compared by many top-ranked scientists with the revolution of quantum physics at the beginning of the 20th century. The conference will offer an excellent opportunity for defining a solid framework for establishing EU as a world leader in the field. The Domain structure at COST guarantees a maximum of success by bringing together scientists from BMBS, CMCT, FA, and ICT. By employing a highly interdisciplinary panel of speakers as well as participants representing top-class EU academic institutions and enterprises, the event will clarify the emerging importance of epigenetics in basic as well as in applied research.

Domain-specific strategic event

The Predictive Power of Marine Science in a Changing Climate

The future quality of life on Earth depends fundamentally on trends in world climate. Seas and oceans play a dominant role in regulating global climate by helping to control greenhouse gases, global heat transfer and weather patterns. If we also consider the energy and other resources oceans offer, their essential importance to human existence becomes obvious. Reports from various international communities clearly indicate that the marine environment becomes a subject to migrate under the climate change. This strategic event focused on the current capabilities of the predictive tools and programmes aimed at describing the future scenarios of the marine environment changes, and at identifying the gaps in our present knowledge of the marine science in terms of atmosphere-ocean interactions, sea water dynamics, role of marine chemistry in diagnosis of the present stay and prediction of future perspective, and interaction of ocean dynamics and ecology.

COST Actions: A Great Opportunity as Incubators for Molecular Science and Technology

Founding a company in the fields of chemistry and the life sciences is not only associated with high initial investments for good equipment but it also requires capable minds to develop scientific ideas into marketable products. Many scientists at universities and other research institutions dream about a company but there are many hurdles to overcome to achieve such objective. From the basic scientific intuition to the establishment of a “new technology company“ able to attract customers, find suitable suppliers, hire an appropriate workforce, etc., a rigorous business plan is needed and investment capital is required to launch the start-up.
