6. ESA teacher event to inspire scientists of tomorrow

Record Control Number : 17423

Date : 2001-10-03

Category : Event

General Information :

The European Space Agency (ESA) is to host a conference for Europe's teachers to demonstrate how space technology can help them to inspire the space explorers, scientists and engineers of tomorrow.

TEACH SPACE 2001 will take place at the ESA's ESTEC centre in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, from 26 to 28 October.

The conference is designed to help European teachers of all disciplines use the International Space Station (ISS)

- the largest international project of all time in which Europe plays a significant role

- to inspire their students with the excitement of space technology and travel. It is hoped that the event will help to stem the steady decrease in the number of students studying sciences by encouraging teachers to generate interest in the area.

European astronauts will give presentations, guide teachers through a 'virtual tour' of the ISS and be on hand to answer questions. The conference will also include presentations by ESA representatives from the Earth observation, Life and physical sciences and Space exploration directorates. Teachers will be able to share their needs and expectations with the ESA in special working group sessions.

9. Innovation networking conference to help European SMEs

Record Control Number : 17433

Date : 2001-10-04

Category : Event

General Information :

The participants of a project on innovation for SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) co-funded by the European Commission will gather in Bologna, Italy on 26 and 27 October to discuss the lessons learnt after three years on the project.

The TETRIS project ran from 1998 and ended in June 2001, having formed a network for the exchange of best practices in innovation among European SMEs. The details of these were analysed and validated before being exchanged with other European regions. Supported by the DG Enterprise's innovation programme, the project's participants (from Ireland, Italy, Spain and Portugal) found that the practice of innovation exchange in Europe threw up some interesting issues, which the conference in Bologna is designed to address.

The principal areas to be discussed are the experiences of the participants in disseminating innovation practice to SMEs, the challenges involved in carrying this out on a European as well as a regional level, the implications for innovation policy of a knowledge-based economy and the future development and enlargement of the TETRIS network.
