A digital environment - with the possibility of massive data exchange and processing - is expected in all fields that should define the scope of activities in the forthcoming two-year programming period of Horizon 2020. In parallel, the V4 countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia ) have issued a common position for a Digital Single Market based on digital economy and cyber security. If the V4 countries want to deal with these challenges then they need to support the research and innovation activities in this area as well as improve the business environment. The following topics will be discussed by our distinguished speakers:
• Releasing the potential of cloud computing in Europe - building the secure environment for big and small partners
• User friendly and easy cyber security solutions for citizens and SMEs
• Data driven economy in V4 and their contribution to European activities
The conference will be held at premises of the Permanent Representation of the Slovak Republic to the EU, Avenue de Cortenbergh 79, 1000 Brussels Belgium.

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.

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.

The purpose of this 3rd edition of EURINT international conference entitled 'Regional development and integration. New challenges for the EU' is to provide a proper context for mutual dialogue, joint knowledge and a better understanding of the challenges the EU faces in the current European milieu marked by a gradual regionalization process.
Since becoming members of the EU the Central and Eastern European countries (CEECs) have experienced an ongoing process of decentralization, devolution and regionalization which, in turn, brought about different ways of envisaging regional development. By and large, regional development can be seen as a general effort to reduce regional economic disparities by supporting several economic activities in the less development regions. Main objectives have been large-scale infrastructure development, creating opportunities for inward investment, policies to enhance social cohesion and other top-down and bottom-up initiatives meant to help regions to catch-up and to establish economic clusters of development.
The event is organised by Centre for European Studies from 'Alexandru Ioan Cuza' University of Iasi - Romania.
