Nov 17 – Nov 20 all-day

The 6th European Innovation Summit, organised by Knowledge4innovation, will take place from 17 to 20 November 2014 in the European Parliament in Brussels. The programme features more than 25 conference sessions and discussions on topics of great importance for everyone working in the area of innovation and more than 100 high-level speakers from the European parliament, the European Commission, the educational and the private sector. The motto of the this year’s edition is ‘A Mandate for Innovation in Europe’ which highlights the strong belief that innovation should be a top strategic priority in the new institutional cycle of the European Union and the centerpiece of a revised Europe 2020 strategy.

For a sixth consecutive year the event brings together EU’s political, business, academic and scientific elite and provides a valuable opportunity for networking and sharing experience with other innovative organisations and high level EU policy makers. What is more, the summit is a unique chance to meet the newly elected MEPs and learn about their plans for the future of innovation in Europe.

The programme of the 6th European Innovation Summit features conference sessions on important “horizontal” aspects of innovation such as Framework conditions for innovation, TTIP, Horizon 2020, as well as parallel sessions for specific sectors for which innovation is the major resource to overcome the big challenges ahead – agriculture, energy, transport, health, climate, IT. Find the detailed programme of the summit here.

During the four days of the event, the participants will also have the opportunity to visit the special EIS Exhibition Space where a number of organisations will present concrete cases from their day-to-day experience and demonstrate their innovative and technological achievements and solutions.

AWARH – Awareness Week on Alcohol Related Harm
Nov 24 – Nov 28 all-day

Website: http://www.awarh.eu/

The Awareness Week on Alcohol Related Harm (AWARH) was initiated in 2013 by a group of like-minded organisations following three Roundtable meetings on an integrated approach to alcohol-related harm.

During the roundtable meetings, the organisations agreed that an EU-level awareness raising campaign should be established to provide information on the detrimental effects associated with alcohol consumption. The first AWARH was held on the week of 13th May 2013 under the Month of the Brain. Many policymakers and healthcare organisations joined to the Awareness Week on Alcohol-Related Harm (AWARH) to highlight the negative effects of alcohol and call for greater policy action to address the problems it can cause, through improvements in: Prevention, Eduaction, Screening, Treatment and Adequate Services.

European Conference on Youth Mental Health: From Continuity of Psychopathology to Continuity of Care @ San Servolo Congress Center
Dec 16 – Dec 18 all-day

Website: www.youthmentalhealth2014.eu

Young people aged 10–24 years represent 27% of the world’s population, and up to 75% of mental disorders occur within 25 years (Kessler et al., 2007). If many mental disorders continue across different developmental stages, do mental health services guarantee continuity of care?  Unfortunately the current service configuration of distinct Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and Adult Mental Health Services (AMHS) is a barrier to providing continuity of care. For this reason, the current service configuration of CAMHS and AMHS has been described as the “weakest link in a system where it should be most robust” (McGorry, 2007). Therefore we need a new, evidence-based ‘youth mental health paradigm’: the STraMeHS Conference aims at raising awareness and improving mental health providers, policy makers, decision makers and health administrators’ knowledge about youth mental health and factors affecting this area. The event will also promote the development of integrated and continuous models of care and functioning of mental health services targeted to the specific needs of youth.
