Nell’ambito della strategia del Green Deal Europeo, la Commissione Europea ha pubblicato ufficialmente i Draft topics della prossima call di Horizon 2020 sul tema: un’iniziativa di finanziamento specificatamente dedicata alle tematiche contenute nel piano che ambisce a rendere l’Europa il primo continente a impatto climatico zero entro il 2050.
Il bando, la cui apertura è prevista per metà settembre, finanzierà progetti tesi a produrre risultati tangibili da sviluppare in tempi relativamente brevi e soluzioni concrete, in particolare:
· applicazioni pilota, progetti dimostrativi e prodotti innovativi; · innovazioni per una migliore governance della transizione verde e digitale; · innovazione sociale e della catena del valore. Oltre allo sviluppo tecnologico e alla sua dimostrazione, la call incoraggia l’innovazione sociale e la sperimentazione di nuovi modi di coinvolgimento della società civile per responsabilizzare i cittadini.
La call sarà strutturata in 11 “AREE”, di cui otto tematiche e tre trasversali:
Per celebrare la Giornata della Terra, EFIB offre una selezione della bibliografia esistente per coloro che vogliono imparare durante questo intermezzo sull’Ingegneria Naturalistica. La nostra disciplina, con la sua visione trasversale e multidisciplinare, ibrida tra le scienze biologiche e l’ingegno umano, è necessaria sia per questa situazione congiunturale che per affrontare sfide maggiori. È tempo di cure. Prendiamoci anche cura della nostra casa comune. Prendiamoci cura della terra. Buona lettura.
The European Forum for Circular Economy (EFCE) is an event created by WEBS (World Event Business Solutions) in partnership with the law firm Aklea, and aims to bring together on October 13 and 14, 2020 in Paris all the actors of the circular economy, public and private, laboratories of research as innovative companies to allow them to share and highlight their expertise, their know-how, their solutions as their feedback, to show the strength of this dynamic and their ability to carry the ambition to succeed in the ecological and energy transition.
Call for papers Deadline :March 31, 2020
10 major themes
1. Building, construction and infrastructure: organizing the sectors to promote the collection, recycling and recovery of waste, at what cost, how to limit the exploitation of natural resources and promote eco-design, how to contribute to carbon neutrality
2. Plastic: how to limit its impact, recycle it, recover it and reduce its production
3. Agriculture, from farm to fork: meeting new needs, new expectations of consumers, setting up new circuits to better enhance agricultural production, food cities and urban farms : how to move from myth to reality, how to contribute to carbon neutrality
4. Industrial, manufacturing and textile production: optimizing resource management, ensuring the independence of the EU over strategic natural resources, limiting the impact on natural resources, ensuring the development of industrial ecology and the economy functionality, moving the production to the local and territorial levels, finding new logics of intra and intersectoral cooperation to respond to mass markets, defining the value, the quality and the guarantee for recycled products, and finding the way to contribute to carbon neutrality
5. Waste electrical and electronic equipment: the role of eco-organizations, the development of repair and reuse activities, the opportunity to develop the design of new products from recycled materials
6. Circular economy and energy recovery: the field of possibilities, finding the required conditions to be successful in this development, identifying the challenges and prospects
7. Household waste: innovations to optimize collection and better value flows
8. Territories and circular economy: how to promote new forms of partnership between all stakeholders, what governance to adopt to act from local to national, what place for industrial ecology, what solutions to promote their resilience and ensure sustainable supply
9. Digital: the essential tool to promote the development of the circular economy
10. The EPR: the miracle solution to ensure recycling and recovery on a large scale
Our first EFIB news of this year is a The first EFIB News o of the year is to remind you the events in which we will participate and we trust that are of your interest: Bern, Colombia. Alicante …SW Bioengineering as a tool for the challenges we face. Important challenges, therefore we think in joining forces with other organizations, to be able to move forward and as the motto of the SER congress in Alicante says work together towards a new green deal for Europe’s Nature!

SAVE THE DATE 13rd and 19th JUNE 2020
5th International Conference on Soil, Bio-and Eco-Engineering
EAs in the preceding SBEE conference series, we will bring together researchers, practitioners, geotechnical and civil engineers, biologists, ecologists, geomorphologists and foresters to discuss current problems in soil-resource sustainability, soil erosion and slope-stability research, and how to address these problems using soil, bio- and eco-engineering techniques. The Verein Für Ingenieurbiologie with the European Federation of Soil and Water Bioengineering collaborates whit the School of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences HAFL of the Bern University of Applied Sciences.
SAVE THE DATE: 12th European Conference on Ecological Restoration SERE2020!
31st AUGUST – 4th SEPTEMBER 2020
A NEW GREEN DEAL FOR EUROPE’S NATURE
Science and political action towards socio-ecological restoration
The organizing committee and the University of Alicante welcome you to the 12th European Conference on Ecological Restoration SERE2020! Between August 31 and September 4 2020, we will discuss challenges facing ecological restoration in post-2020 Europe, and particularly, how can ecological restoration promote the recovery of damaged, degraded and destroyed socio-ecological systems in these critical times.
The European Federation of Soil and Water Bioengineering and the Spanish member AEIP Asociación Española de Ingeniería del Paisaje, collaborate in this evente and wil organize some activities around the Soil and Water Bioengineering and the ecological restoration, that will be announce soon. The members of AEIP and EFIB will have a special price to attend at this conference. We wait for you abstract.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Thon Hotel Brussels City Centre, Brussels Wednesday 5th July 2017. Climate change poses one of the greatest anthropogenic threats to modern life across the globe. The risks include biodiversity loss, ocean acidification, meteorological extremes, instability of global food systems, floods, droughts, and the irreversible modification of our living environment. Despite Europe’s rhetorical commitment to fighting climate change, the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) estimates that surface temperatures are projected to rise over the 21st century under all assessed emission scenarios. Furthermore, the European Environment Agency estimates that the total reported economic damage caused by climate-related extremes in Europe over the last four decades is close to 400 billion Euros. Thus, mitigating climate change is now a political and economic necessity, despite a recent rise of climate-sceptic governance and severe disagreement on how the costs of mitigation will be distributed. It is imperative that the EU steps up with ambitious targets and becomes a world leader in an inclusive energy transition. This international symposium will provide delegates with an invaluable opportunity to assess Europe’s approach to tackling climate change and discuss possible pathways for innovation, adaption and mitigation. The event will also enable delegates to share best practice and knowledge on strategies for an inclusive and socially responsible transition to clean energy sources. The conference will support the exchange of ideas and encourage delegates to engage in thought-provoking topical debate. Flyer
