1. Candidate country National Contact Points 'need more support'

Record Control Number : 18304

Date : 2002-04-24

Category : Miscellaneous

General Information :

Candidate country National Contact Points (NCPs) need more support, resources and training, according to a report compiled by TRAIN-NET, an NCP training network funded under the Quality of life programme of the Fifth Framework programme for research (FP5) .

The report says that NCPs, which give advice to researchers and institutions who wish to participate in EU Framework programmes, have limited resources in candidate countries. It highlights the need to make effective use of available resources, work with partners and find ways of mobilising additional resources. It calls for EU funding for activities to promote further synergies between existing NCPs, including transnational cooperation, twinning and partner searches.

The report also recommends financial support for activities such as TRAIN-NET, which promote the exchange of knowledge and best practice. In addition, it highlights key areas where co-financing by the EU would be useful, including the translation of EU documents into national languages and visits by experienced lecturers. It adds that while the TRAIN-NET consortium recognises that these activities fall within national responsibilities, 'candidate countries just do not have the resources to perform and finance these activities by themselves.'

The report also calls for the introduction of advanced training courses for NCPs in areas such as finance, contractual issues and intellectual property rights (IPR) , international project management and strategy development for the improvement of researcher competitiveness. It also recommends the introduction of general guidelines on EC documents and information on policy papers issued by the EU.

The EU's plans for the 'mapping of excellence' within the EU under the Sixth Framework programme (FP6) should be extended to the candidate countries as well as EU Member States, says the report, as the establishment of 'expertise is an important prerequisite for initiating collaboration with transnational research projects and [becoming] accepted and included in established consortia.'

It adds that the 'mobility centres' foreseen by the EC in FP6, which will assist researchers in issues related to mobility, could have an important role to play in encouraging networking through fellowships.

The document also highlights two surveys currently being prepared, which it says will further aid the process of collaboration between potential partners and with the European Commission

- a national survey of the research landscape in each country participating in the NCP network and a description of the NCP structure of each participating country.

2. Energy conferences address efficiency

Record Control Number : 18301

Date : 2002-04-23

Category : Event

General Information :

The 2nd International conference on energy efficiency in commercial buildings (IEECB) will be held in conjunction with the 'Right light 5' conference (5th European conference on energy efficient lighting) on 27 to 31 May in Nice, France.

The two conferences have been organised by several energy agencies from across Europe, together with the European Commission and the OPET network (Organisations for the promotion of energy technologies) .

The conferences will cover the latest trends in areas such as technology, programme design, legislation, and standards. Whereas IEECB focuses on all technologies in commercial buildings, Right Light 5 will cover energy efficient lighting issues in all sectors: residential, commercial and public.

The two conferences are held back to back; IEECB running from 27 May to 29 May, with 'Right light 5' following on 29 May to 31 May. The conference fee will be valid for both conferences but participants are able to choose to attend both events or just one of the two There will also be a showcase exhibition, and exhibitors are welcome.

3. Swedish conference to examine FP5 research on stratospheric ozone

Record Control Number : 18302

Date : 2002-04-23

Category : Event

General Information :

The results of European research on stratospheric ozone carried out under the EU's Fifth Framework programme for research (FP5) will be presented at the Sixth European symposium on stratospheric ozone in Gothenburg, Sweden, from 2 to 6 September 2002.

The symposium will present results from European research clusters funded under the FP5 'Environment and sustainable development' programme, including ATUV (Atmospheric UV radiation) , CORSAIRE (Coordination of research for the study of aircraft impact on the environment) , GATO (Global atmospheric observations) , OCLI (Ozone-climate interactions) and SOLO (Stratospheric ozone loss) . Further analysis of measurements made during THESEO (Third European stratospheric experiment on ozone) will also be presented.

Sessions on specific scientific topics such as polar ozone loss, dynamics and transport, ozone-climate interactions and UV radiation will be included.

The symposium is being organised by the European Commission, Sweden's Chalmers University of Technology, the Swedish National space board, the Swedish Research Council for the environment, agricultural sciences and spatial planning and the Swedish space corporation.

All interested scientists are invited to attend.

4. International conference to examine computational methods and experimental measurements

Record Control Number : 18307

Date : 2002-04-24

Category : Event

General Information :

An international conference on computational methods and experimental measurements, organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology, UK, the University of Naples, Italy and the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, will take place in Halkidiki, Greece, from 12 to 14 May.

The event will provide an overview of the latest work on the interaction between computational methods and experimental measurements. Whilst computer models have been increasingly successful in simulating a range of engineering problems, it is essential that advances in these models are validated and verified against experiment.

Experimental measurements are conditioned to the requirements of computational models. It is therefore important that scientists working on experiments communicate with researchers developing computer codes and carrying out measurements on prototypes. The concurrent development of all fields is essential for the progress of engineering sciences.
