Dear Reader,

It has now been a while since the Scoping Papers of the next (and last) Horizon 2020 Work Programme have been released. Amongst key changes we may expect, there is a larger focus on boosting impact, including through more effective dissemination and exploitation of the project results.

Are you ready for the impact-related challenges of the upcoming Work Programme?

Europa Media has partnered with META Group to provide you with a unique Proposal Development training course with a special section on Impact and dissemination and exploitation measures. Join us in Brussels on 30-31 March for the complete proposal development training, or on 31st March only to examine exclusively “the Key Factors of Impact”.

We believe this specialisation will strongly support your efforts on the upcoming calls, but if you prefer a more conventional learning experience, registrations are already open for our traditional Horizon 2020 Proposal Development training course, which will take place in Budapest on 13-14 June, within the framework of our annual European Funding Academy.

Finally, if sustainable forest management and forest treatment of Natura 2000 sites is your thing, we will gladly welcome you to an upcoming international conference that will be held in Sopron on 21-22 March as part of the LIFEinFORESTS project, in which Europa Media is partner.

A new food waste treatment strategy for Europe
Daniel Frohnmaier

Do you remember the question that was posed by Krisztina nearly three years ago, in her blog post? Is it possible to turn food waste into a resource? This question kicked off the PlasCarb project on December 1st, 2013, and since then our team, consisting of seven partner institutions from five EU Member States, has worked hard to answer this question with a well-grounded YES.
