"Bridge over troubled waters? The link between European historical heritage and the future of European integration"

17 October 2014, Rome

What is a "Reflective Society"? And how can we connect past, present and the future in the current European societies?  These were just some of the questions on the table at the workshop co-organized in Rome last 17th October by the Reflective Societies Unit of the European Commission's DG Research and Innovation in cooperation with the FLASH-IT project (FaciLitating Access to Socio-economic ResearcH through Information and Communications Technologies). "Memory, commemoration, heritage, identity have gradually become the keywords of the end of the twentieth century, even though history with a capital ‘H’ […] has seen her magisterium vanish". This is one of the many interesting inputs given by François Hartog from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, keynote speaker at the workshop. Prof. Hartog, together with specialists of history, cultural heritage and identity studies, policy makers, managers from the European Commission and national funding bodies tried to provide constructive answers to several open issues revolving around the concept of Reflective Societies.

The results of the workshop will contribute to define future research topics on European history, heritage and identities that will respond to the needs of contemporary European societies and that will reinvigorate the link between interpretations of the past and the willingness to share common European objectives. The proceedings of the event will soon be available.

24th Annual International Society of Exposure Science Conference

12-16 October 2014, Cincinnati, USA

Our theme is Exposure Science Integration to Protect Ecological Systems, Human Well-Being, and Occupational Health. Our program will foster the integration of exposure science as applied to community, occupational, and ecological health as recommended by the NRC Exposure Science in the 21st Century. We plan to highlight the value that exposure science has brought to the protection of health and the environment and its growing importance in the face of such global threats of population pressure, climate change, nitrogen cycling, water and energy availability.
