The aim of the conference is to discuss challenges related to the invasive alien species (IAS) and diseases in Europe and their impact on the development of EU policies in the field of agriculture and environment. The complex issue of invasive alien species was recently addressed by the European Commission in the proposal for a Regulation on IAS. The Horizon 2020 programme tackles aspects of the need for sustainable food security, more resilient and resource efficient value chains, emerging crop diseases and integrated pest management. The discussions among stakeholders and representatives from different EU institutions raised comments and challenges on how to implement the Regulation and what will be the impact and also the impact of the IAS on the agriculture. The conference will present the policy view on the subject as well as stakeholders' views (researchers from the Czech Republic and other European countries dealing with IAS and diseases). [read more]
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.

Under your feet is something very ordinary but essential to life-soil. It grows the food we eat and regulates the water, carbon and nutrient cycles that shape our environment and climate. To help keep farming sustainable, EU-funded researchers have mapped out the long-term impacts of how farmers use soil, and developed a tool and guidelines to support best practices in farms.
