ONE Conference Brussels 2014: Policies (R)Evolution and Every European Digital

24 April 2014, Brussels

The Future has begun. Member States and regions must lose no time in preparing the next generation of EU programmes for growth, says Commissioner Hahn after MEPs' vote on radical reform of EU Regional Policy in July 2013.

The new programming period brings new investment budgets for Member States, seeking synergies between Regional Policy and Horizon 2020 in order to maximise the innovation opportunities. The data-driven economy can provide Europe with a chance to emerge from the multifaceted crisis with new capabilities. Are Europeans ready for the Data Revolution? Are politicians able to make informed choices and manage changes?

The ONE Conference is facilitating the joint effort of EU partners to build links between information networks and ICT Observatories for reaching ambitious common objectives of Europe 2020. The event is taking place under the auspices of the Czech Ambassador to the EU.

FET-ART Final Event – ICT & Art Connect so far: elements to orient the future

11-12 May 2014, Brussels

ICT & Art Connect sets out to bring together artists and technologists to explore new ways of working. Collaborative acts of co-creation, together with an open and multidisciplinary discussion will foster the blending of Art and Technology.

The coordination action FET-ART has played a crucial role in helping advance this initiative by a set of activities that allowed practitioners in technology and the Arts to meet, collaborate and discuss the future of such collaborations. The event will close the activities of the FET-ART project and present its major achievements and policy recommendations.

Launched in June 2013, FET-ART, in a few months, succeeded in organising several consultation and matchmaking events across Europe, and in supporting 18 residencies developing pilot projects centred on co-creation and citizen engagement in ICT. The projects developed through the residency programme will be presented in a show and tell exhibition curated by Black Cube Collective (BCC). FET-ART consortium is made of Sigma Orionis (coordinator), Brunel University, Stromatolite, Waag Society and Black Cube Collective. The event admission is free.

Developing the next generation of scientists and engineers

3 June 2014, London

This seminar looks at the challenges in increasing the number of young people who choose Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and careers. It follows recent concerns about the lack of STEM graduates taking up careers in these subjects and is also timed to follow the recent publication of the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee inquiry into Women in STEM careers, with just 15.5% of the STEM workforce being made up of women.

Planned sessions look at ways in which government and the HE sector can encourage more young people to study STEM subjects at all levels of education, as well as ways to improve careers guidance for those who do. Delegates will also have the opportunity to discuss the outcomes and recommendations made in the Perkins review, published in November 2013. We are delighted that Professor John Perkins, Chief Scientific Advisor, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Christopher Millward, Associate Director, North, HEFCE have agreed to deliver keynote addresses at this seminar.

Advanced European bioethics course ‘Human Genomics and Medical Technology, ethical opportunities and threats’

11-14 March 2014, Nijmegen, Netherlands

The focus of this 4 day course will be on the moral problems generated by molecular genomics research, and the development and application of new knowledge in clinical genetics. The implications of the development of genomics will probably give rise to new understandings of health and disease, new clinical practices and routines, and shifting responsibilities for scientists, health care providers and patients in preventing, diagnosing or treating disease.

In this course we aim to find answers to questions such as: Which actual ethical issues are connected with genomics? How do ethics germinate within genomic research? What promises does genomics offer and in what ways can it be expected to influence both clinical practice and the health care system? How should we deal with questions that arise when genetic information is stored in biobanks? What are ethical requirements for personalized medicine? How should incidental findings be dealt with? And what about privacy and informed consent? What are the basic philosophical insights into human-technology relations at the core of these ethical issues?

This course is designed with participants from various backgrounds in mind: researchers working in the field of human genetics, biomedical sciences, life sciences, genetics and biology and physicians doing research that has a genetic component but also for professionals from other areas in healthcare such as physicians and nurses, health care administrators, bioethics committee members, professionals working in the pharmaceutical industry, professionals in the areas of ethics, philosophy and theology, and PhD students undertaking courses of study in any of these areas.
