External events

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.

Sirolo (AN), Italy

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.

05 - 08 May 2014
Athens, Greece

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.

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.
