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.
