Dear all!

EUSJA has confirmed for its members the study trip to the European Spallation Source (ESS) from April 3 to 5. ESS is a multi-disciplinary research facility based on the world’s most powerful neutron source, now under construction in Lund, Sweden. ESS will enable unprecedented world leading research using neutrons, providing new scientific opportunities in a wide range of research fields, including life sciences, energy, environmental technology, cultural heritage and fundamental physics. EUSJA members will now get the possibility to visit ESS and the construction site. There will be guided tour of the site and labs. Journalists will meet Director General of ESS and a number of high-level representatives from the organisation who will present their respective fields (science, accelerator + target station etc) and reply the questions.

We have 20 slots that are covering free accommodation for 2 nights in a hotel in Lund, meals and transfers to the venue and back to the hotel. According our rules the participants have to take care of their travel charges.

I take this opportunity to send all of you my best wishes and season greetings. Have a happy Christmas time and very happy New Year.

Studieresor till Tyskland om klimatfrågor.

What is the story behind Germany’s climate policy and energy transition? How has the country benefited from its efforts to cut emissions and what have been the main challenges along the way?

We would like to invite journalists from Central and Eastern Europe to take part in one of three individual study tours to Germany. The study tours offer an exclusive insight into Germany’s climate and energy policies, also known as Energiewende, and their impacts. Take advantage of this opportunity to gain exclusive insights into Germany’s “climate policy transformation in action” in the run-up to COP23 in Bonn.

Step behind the scenes to meet the people involved in the country’s switch to a low-carbon economy, widely known as the Energiewende.
Explore pioneering flagship projects and gather information on the opportunities and obstacles the country has experienced so far.
Meet and discuss with journalists from Germany and other European countries current topics of climate and energy politics.

Participation is free of charge. You can choose from the series one or more tours with the following distinct themes: local action, green innovation and structural transformation – in three different areas of Germany.

TOUR 1 – 12 to 14 September 2017
Local climate action – climate policy and energy transition from a bottom-up perspective

TOUR 2 – 10 to 12 October 2017
Green innovations boosting the low-emission economy

TOUR 3 – 3 to 5 November 2017 (just before COP23 in Bonn)
Climate policy and Energy transition as an opportunity for structural change and rural areas

Each focusing on different aspects of German climate policy and the Energiewende, the study tours will offer opportunities to meet key players behind the transition and visit concrete projects. They will provide different perspectives on the benefits and challenges Germany has experienced so far.

For more details about the tours, travel arrangements and the application process, please see the attached PDF or visit https://media-study-tours.adelphi.de

Please note: All application documents need to be submitted before 20 August 2017. Journalists meeting the eligibility criteria may apply for a maximum of two study tours. Successful candidates will be contacted by 25 August 2017 and provided with a detailed preliminary agenda for the respective study tour.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact my colleague Emily Wright at media-study-tour@adelphi.de.

Pressresa om bioekonomi i Baden-Württemberg 27-30 juni och träffa Nobelpristagare i Lindau

Press Trip ”Bioeconomy in Baden-Württemberg”

Bioeconomy is gaining importance worldwide. With the world population approaching 9 billion by 2050 and finite
natural resources, Europe needs renewable biological feedstocks for materials and energy. Bioeconomy is a
new model for industry and the economy. It involves the sustainable use of renewable biological resources for
the production of food, energy and industrial goods. It also exploits the untapped potential within millions of tons
of biological waste and residual materials. Transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based economy is expected to
reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and achieve more sustainability as well as contribute to climate and
environmental protection.
The state of Baden-Württemberg, located in South West Germany, is characterized by a strong research
landscape, a well-developed agricultural and forestry sector, highly innovative companies in the mechanical and
plant engineering sectors, biotech companies, energy suppliers and around 440 chemical companies. Thus,
Baden-Württemberg possesses optimal conditions to acquire a leading position in the field of bioeconomy.
The government of Baden-Württemberg supports its own research strategy through financing relevant scientific
projects and structural measures, including the establishment of a competence network focussed on the
modelling of bioeconomy.
In cooperation with the Bioeconomy Research Program Baden-Württemberg, the press trip will cover different
stations of a bio-based economy from the production of renewable raw materials, development of resourceefficient
and sustainable processes, design of diversified and tailor-made products as well as recycling and enduse
of products and residuals.

Selected journalists from different countries in Europe have the unique opportunity of being part of an exclusive press trip through Baden-Württemberg from 27th to 30th of June 2017, which focuses in particular on the new developments in the field of bioeconomy in Baden-Württemberg. The trip will be organized by Baden-Württemberg International.

The program (see enclosure) includes visits and specialist meetings with selected research institutions, universities, companies and political institutions in Baden-Württemberg. Participants will consequently have the opportunity of finding out about the latest developments in this field in Baden-Württemberg. The program is performed in English. The costs for the flight to and from Baden-Württemberg, board and lodging and logistics in Baden-Württemberg are covered by Baden-Württemberg International (see contents and terms of participation). You can find all these information on the following website .

Please send your application for the trip by April 21 , 2017 to julia.hader@bw-i.de (application form attached).

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Baden-Württemberg.

Kind regards

Julia Hader

The deadline for application is 21 of April 2017. Thank you very much for your cooperation.
