Transdisciplinary strategic event

The Cities of Tomorrow: the Challenges of Horizon 2020 Conference

As underlined in Cities of Tomorrow – Challenges, visions, ways forward (European Commission, DG Regional Policy 2011), cities are at once the breeding ground for many urban problems and science and technology solutions, culture and innovation, individual and collective creativity, and their role in mitigating the impact of climate change. In recent years, the economic and financial crisis has intensified several urban problems and demonstrated the limits of existing sectorial policies, hence calling for an integrated, cross-sectorial and territorial approach which offers a new European model of urban development. This workshop aimed at defining this new integrated concept of cities which will generate dynamic urban development, transport, engineering, environment and social perspectives across a diversity of geographical levels. This ambition can only be realised by an interdisciplinary cooperation that COST is best positioned to provide, leveraging expertise from four Domain Committees (TUD in collaboration with ESSEM, ICT and ISCH) and exchanged ideas with key actors in the field of urban development. Such cross-fertilization of ideas can generate a holistic vision that encompasses all the trends and problems characterizing the cities and propose possible solutions integrating social sciences, physical and engineering sciences as well as life sciences.

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 brought 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.

ESOF 2014 - Euroscience Open Forum

COST was proudly present at ESOF 2014, an inter-disciplinary, pan-European meeting which every two years brings together 5000 scientists, business leaders, government officials and international media to discuss the best of European science and to address all of the major global challenges, including Energy, Climate Change, Food and Health. This year's vision was to raise awareness of science in the public and to strengthen the effective “bridges” between science and society that is synonymous with Euroscience.

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 was 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 included 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 was 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 was a natural role for COST.

Transdisciplinary strategic event

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 offered an excellent opportunity for defining a solid framework for establishing EU as a world leader in the field. The Domain structure at COST guaranteed 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.
