The AE Cardiff Hub had an active role in the Building Consortia for Energy 2018-2020 event organised by Vision 2020 along with Cardiff University at Wales House in Brussels on 5-6 May 2018. Cardiff University is the leader of the Energy Helix, one of fifteen active communities of researchers and companies hosted by Vision 2020. Every helix focuses on a different Horizon 2020 topic area and serves as a collaboration platform.
On 6th/7th March, the Cardiff Hub hosted a major international symposium, Physiology and Pathophysiolgy 2018, to mark the 75th birthday of Professor Ole Petersen CBE FRS ML MAE, Vice-President of Academia Europaea. The event attracted 90 delegates from across the world, many of whom had worked with or been mentored by Professor Petersen.
The Food from the Oceans Evidence Review Report and Scientific Opinion were discussed during the ‘Blue innovation: Oceans to Feed the Planet‘ Roundtable. The event took place on 27th February 2018 in Brussels and was organised by the Science Business Network, a highly prestigious European think-tank.
Academia Europaea and the Cardiff Hub were active participants in the European Risk Forum Conference on Scientific integrity, public policy and better regulation, as part of our work on science advice for policy-making (the SAPEA project). The meeting took place in Brussels on 20th February.
We are delighted that Prof Mike Bowker, Professor of Surface Science at School of Chemistry Cardiff University and Deputy Director of the Cardiff Catalysis Institute, is contributing to the Scientific Expert Workshop on “Carbon Capture and Utilisation” organised by SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies) today.
