WEPATS Conference

29th November 2016 (11:20 - 13:55) 

WEPATS (Workshop on Environmental Protection And Technologies for Safety) – Major European research laboratories will present their innovations in the domain of energy, environment and risk management.

CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), ESA (European Space Agency), ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) and European XFEL (X-ray Free Electron Laser) are research laboratories that have aspiring scientific challenges and a constant need for technological innovation so as to achieve their ambitions.

These major European research laboratories, reunited under the network EIROForum will give a conference during Pollutec fair on the 29th of November from 11.20 to 13.55 at the ‘Risks exhibition sector forum’ which is also in HALL 4 near GREEN DAYS.

During this session, visitors will have the opportunity to get to know the laboratories’ technologies and challenges in the areas of energy, environment and risk management; technologies which are all accessible to the industry thanks to transfer technology.

The technologies are:

  • Waste Management
  • Radiation Detection
  • Harmful Substance Detection
  • Remote Robotic/Mechanic operations
  • High Efficiency Solar Panels
  • Aeration
  • Cryogenics
  • Water Management

The event will allow the participants to discover these opportunities and interact directly with representatives from CERN, ESA, ESRF and European XFEL so as to initiate potential collaborations.
