Justice Needs Trust: From Law & Order to Trust-Based Policies

26 May 2015, Brussels

Over the course of three years, the FIDUCIA team has investigated alternative ways of shaping policies addressing criminal justice and crime reduction across Europe.

The FIDUCIA project is based on the idea that the best starting point for criminal policy is to ask "Why do people obey the law?" rather than "Why do people break the law?" Inverting the  traditional criminological question in this way directs our attention to the fact that compliance with the law is to do with norms and values. The FIDUCIA message is that the best long-term results in domestic and European criminal policies are to be found in strategies that foster trust in justice and thus encourage normative compliance with the law.

This final Conference will provide an opportunity to learn about the projects’ findings and to consider the policy briefs that the FIDUCIA team has produced in relation to the four categories of criminal justice problem that are pan-European priorities: cybercrime, human trafficking and trafficking of goods, and the criminalisation of irregular migrants. The FIDUCIA team will also present findings from FIDUCIA surveys on trust in justice across Europe.

Building Bridges in Translational Medicine

27-28 May 2015, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Navigating the pathway of translational research is a challenging undertaking. Success depends on a goal-driven mindset, effective input from multiple disciplinary domains, multiparty collaboration and a full understanding of the regulatory requirements of product development. Accessing high quality partners and services is beset by fragmentation and uncertainty.

EATRIS ERIC – the European Infrastructure for Translational Medicine, is a permanent academic research infrastructure that supports researchers and funders in de-risking and adding value to their high potential products in development. Using a simple ‘one-stop shop’ mechanism, industry and academia alike can access leading translational research facilities and key expertise across Europe.

The second EATRIS conference will bring together key international stakeholders in translational research. Over two days they will present and discuss the main challenges in translational research, together with the new developments that EATRIS ERIC contributes to the field.

Launching Workshop: a European Roadmap for Climate Services

17 March 2015, Brussels

The event is organised by the DIRECTORATE-GENERAL FOR RESEARCH & INNOVATION and it is a follow-up of the Workshop "Towards a European market for Climate Services" (Brussels, 18 March 2014), designed to initiate a visionary and forward looking discussion on the development of a European market for climate services. One of its outcomes was the proposal to design a research and innovation Roadmap for climate services to be implemented through Horizon 2020 and beyond.
This workshop is the first public occasion to present the Roadmap to the stakeholders and key players in the field, share views, discuss the challenges and opportunities, and move towards its implementation.

The Roadmap will be published by the end of February 2015. It is not a European Commission document, but it is the result of the work of an ad hoc expert group, established by the European Commission, and relied on the involvement of a larger supporting group – including the EC services, Copernicus and the EIT Climate KIC - and on a focused stakeholders' consultation. The Roadmap is expected to offer a coherent and focused framework for action, able to leverage on existing initiatives at EU and national level, as well as to provide a support framework to local initiatives.

The event is a one-day workshop for about 180 participants, mostly leaders of organisations which either produce or supply climate information and intelligence, or are interested as actual or potential users of climate services. Some of them have been involved in different ways in the development of the Roadmap. The Workshop programme is designed to introduce the Roadmap, share views and experiences on the key issues identified in the document, and initiate a discussion among scientists, policy makers, practitioners, climate services suppliers/purveyors and end-users, with the goal to facilitate a trans disciplinary dialogue, inspire innovative approaches and new forms of collaboration, upon which will ultimately depend the successful implementation of the Roadmap. To this aim, we propose to address the key issues identified in the Roadmap through the contribution of guest speakers who will either present a case study (see 'case study' in the agenda), or their experience and perspective (see 'ambassador' in the agenda), based on direct practice and/or representing a sector/type of organisation/specific challenge.

Venue: Management Centre Europe (MCE), Rue de l'Aqueduc 118, 1050 Brussels

MEMOLA project celebrates UN World Water Day

14 March 2015, Sierra Nevada (Spain)

Cleaning Campaign of Rehabilitated Medieval Irrigation System of Barjas (Sierra Nevada-Spain)

UN World Water Day was celebrated at the mountains of Sierra Nevada, thanks to the initiative of the FP7 funded, MEMOLA project. One year after the recovery of the irrigation channel of Barjas, the MEMOLA team, along with the local irrigators community, organised its cleaning followed by a community meal. Almost one hundred people joined for the event.

The cleaning of the channels is crucial for its maintenance, assuring water released by the melting of snow for a peasant community of 400 people. The irrigation channels provide very significant ecoservices to the area: irrigates fields, recharges aquifers and maintains the habitat of a forest of chestnuts and oaks, among others.
