Objective of the event

The aim of the round table is to illustrate six themes of a more general problematic: a European legal order and its role in a world order. Europe's historical and cultural richness provides a unique opportunity to explore legal solutions and policy approaches, which are still left largely unexamined. Within Europe's different countries there exist vast untapped sources of experience with a huge potential for developing new European solutions. The current neglect of the available legal and related interdisciplinary research potential constitutes a serious threat to the efficient representation of European interests on the global stage. At the same time, the European integration process must take advantage of Europe's unique legal culture. This legal culture can only be understood and used efficiently if the historical roots of the diverse legal traditions in Europe are uncovered. Still, the impact of the social and economic integration of Europe through legal means for Europe's socio-economic growth and competitiveness must be addressed. Comparative legal research to identify key factors and their significance in integration remains largely unexploited.

Objective of the event

Mobility management is more and more becoming a core part of the answer to the transport challenge. Understanding the demand for mobility and establishing partnerships of different public and private actors to offer services based on better communication and organisation is growing in importance in order to achieve a cleaner urban transport. Experts from several countries will present examples from the work and the final results of the MOST project. Effort will be made to show both scientific results and vivid examples of local implementation, both working in a city-wide comprehensive programme (Case study Lund, Sweden) and with traffic-generating sites, in this case schools (case study Limburg, Belgium). Aim is to show the wide range of applications for mobility management and how to fully reach its potential to contribute to a sustainable urban transport.

Main target group for the workshop is an interdisciplinary audience of experts, policy makers, practitioners and scientists in the field of transport and connected fields. Beyond this group a general audience can be reached to incorporate all persons related to traffic generation, e.g. schools, hospitals, companies, leisure sites, retail trade.

Objective of the event

The workshop (with presentations by recognised experts followed by a panel discussion) will identify barriers to effective delivery and offer strategies to overcome them. The workshop is supported by three pan-European networks:

  • FOODforce (FOOD: forum for optimising research co-operation in Europe) involving the research directors of leading agro-food research organisations in Europe;

  • European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST);

  • Food Chemistry Division of the Federation of European Chemical Societies (FCD).

The audience are mainly representatives of European consumer organisations, patient groups, agri-food industry, practitioners and managers of research. The involvement of young researchers of both genders is especially important since maximisation of impact will demand training in research management and inter-personal communication, and an effective interchange of relevant best practice.
