1st EU Environmental Research Infrastructures–Industry

May 18, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

1st EU Environmental Research Infrastructures-Industry
Joint Innovation Partnering Forum

Please note that the registration to the Industrial Partnering Forum has ended.

A community of 23 pan-European environmental Research Infrastructures (ENVRI RIs), members of the European Commission Horizon 2020 project ENVRIplus, will meet with Private Industry partners to explore opportunities for new joint innovation projects. The meeting, organised for the first time, will take place in Grenoble, France, from 18–19 May 2017.

ENVRI RIs serve more than 10,000 users, deploying sensors and services worldwide and providing unique information on the long-term evolution of environmental air, ocean and earth ecosystems. So far more than 100 international industries, including infrastructure suppliers, co-developers and users, have established special partnership with ENVRIs.

Most importantly, because ENVRIs play a strong role in influencing funding of new EU innovation programs to mitigate climate change risk, they make for valuable partners for private sector companies, particularly for innovative companies interested in new joint research and technology development projects.

The Joint Innovation Partnering Forum with current and potential Private Sector Partners will be held in the frame of the 4th ENVRIplus meeting in Grenoble, France. The one and half day conference with industry will be organised in four sessions on technological innovation, metrology and standards, and public-private partnership. New products and technologies will also be presented at the exhibition.

Themes of the meeting:

  • Emerging technologies: opportunities for new public-private partnerships and projects in the ERA in air, water and earth environmental monitoring instrumentation, technologies and data value-added applications market
  • Standardization, conformity and homologation: Research Infrastructure value-added services to industry to help shortcut compliance with EU and international environmental directives and standards and access global markets
  • Sharing of Research Infrastructure–Industry innovation cooperation best practices, case studies and success stories
  • Cooperation in new EU research programs and projects addressing climate change, geohazards, pollution, energy efficiency and resource recovery

Strong private sector participation is essential for the success of the event so we hope you will join us. Participation in the event is free-of-charge and open to all interested industry partners. However space is limited, particularly for exhibitors, so please fill in our survey to show your interest:
