Women In Science - How To Increase Women´s Participation In Science?

21 November 2017, Brussels, Belgium

The main aim of the event is to discuss women´s participation in science and research and main challenges facing female scientists.

The conference will bring together scientists, policy makers and experts to discuss conditions for women in science and the key factors behind the low representation of women in leading positions and within some scientific domains and fields of study.

The conference will consist of two parts. Despite the fact that women represent half of the population, their representation in science, research and innovation lag behind. Nevertheless, a number of international organizations and European institutions have paid attention to gender equality in science, empowerment of female scientists and better use of their educational and intellectual potential.

Thanks to these efforts and visibility of the topic, gender equality has become a theme of political and expert discussion. Yet at the same time, neither of these efforts has ensured equal representation of women in leading positions and within some scientific domains and fields of study.

COFFERS meets FairTax: Joint Perspectives on Fair and Sustainable Taxation

21 November 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Open research seminar "COFFERS meets FairTax: Joint Perspectives on Fair and Sustainable Taxation" is organized by the FairTax and COFFERS, the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the EU, the Czech Liaison Office for Research, Development and Innovation and the Representation of the South Moravian Region to the EU.

The European Union confronts increasing and persistent inequalities in income, wealth and opportunity and between generations, gender and regions. One common underlying factor is deficiencies in fiscal systems.

Horizon 2020 project FairTax tries to find answers how fair and sustainable taxation and social policy reforms can increase the economic stability of EU Member States. Horizon 2020 project COFFERS identifies deficiencies and opportunities for upgrading in tax law, tax policy development, tax administration and enforcement.

Registration is free and compulsory.

World Forum for Democracy 2017 - From Fake to Fact: How to strengthen ties among Research, Policy, and Society to counter populism?

9 November 2017, Strasbourg

‘Post-fact’ politics is internationally fuelling concern, particularly in contested fields of public policy, such as social and minority rights, external relations and migration/refugee affairs, and, not least, counter-terrorism and -radicalisation. The interplay of value divergence and uncertainty has proved very vulnerable to opportunistic, simplistic discourses that blend out uncomfortable facts, disqualify opposing views, and polarise public opinion.

Under such circumstances, the relationship among science, policy making, and society is taking a new twist: In the face of proliferation of fake news via social media, and the spread and ‘normalisation’ of uncivil and manipulative behaviours in the public sphere by populist and extremist parties for political gain, the demand for evidence-based resistance has become visible.

While researchers, policy makers, and the media operate along different logics, interests, and time-frames for their action, there is a pressing need to re-examine responsibilities of research and academia, politicians and public administration, as well as the media and the organised civil society, and recast their strategic partnerships. A common objective thereby is to contribute to the self-defence capacity of democracy’s ‘immune reflexes’ by providing evidence and facts to inform policy making both in the technical-scientific sense, and by promoting plausible counter-narratives in the social media and the public sphere in general.

The conference room counts with 163 seats distributed for a diversity of attendants: MEPs, representatives of EU member countries’ parliaments, scientists, and science managers as well as end-users involved or with an interest in the social impact of EU research.

Evidence of the social impact achieved by EU funded projects will be presented by different agents including scientists, policy makers representing different levels of policy implementation – regional, national, and European- as well as end-users who have benefited from the social impact of EU research. 

The FP7 IMPACT-EV project is addressed to mapping and evaluating impact of research in Europe. This project has analyzed the impact of EU FPs’ funded research projects identifying the scientific impact but particularly focusing on the political and social impacts of these research projects.

Annual Event on Public-Public Partnerships

7-8 November 2017, Brussels, Belgium

The annual Joint Programming event on 7 and 8 November 2017 in Brussels, organised by ERA-LEARN and the European Commission (DG RTD) will focus on the future of P2Ps under the motto "Co-designing Public-Public Partnerships for the next Framework Programme" to emphasise the collaborative approach in involving stakeholders for the future design.

Day one will build on the outcomes of the H2020 interim evaluation (Lamy group, Commission Communication, Art.185 evaluations) and the responses of Member States, European Parliament and stakeholders. It will allow participants to contribute to the current political discussion. This will inform them for the interactive session dealing with a number of horizontal issues on which they will have the opportunity to provide input and give feedback.

Day two will focus on ERA-LEARN activities, starting with a plenary session that presents results of the pilot activities on impacts at project level. The parallel sessions will address the support that ERA-LEARN is planning to provide from 2018 on for P2Ps.

Please block the date, a detailed conference programme and registration will be available in September.
