2nd special call for Expression of Interest to respond to coronavirus - Information session

20 May 2020

Innovative and rapid health-related approaches to respond to COVID-19 and to deliver quick results for society for a higher level of preparedness of health systems.
20 May 2020 - 14:00-16:30

This second call for an Expression of Interest implements Action 3 of the ERAvsCorona Action Plan, which resulted from dialogues between the Commission services and the national ministries over the period March-April 2020. The full title of Action 3 is ‘New funding for innovative and rapid health-related approaches that respond to COVID-19 and deliver quick results relevant to society and a higher level of preparedness of health systems’. In line with the Pledge for the Coronavirus Global Response launched on 4 May 2020, it is of paramount importance that new solutions need to be available and affordable for all.

This second call for an expression of interest complements the first expression of interest that the European Commission published in January 2020, which led to the funding of 18 projects in March 2020. The first expression of interest focused on advancing the knowledge on SARS-CoV-2 and its impact on infected persons, with the aim of contributing to an efficient patient management and/or public health preparedness and response.

EURINT 2020 Conference | EU and its neighbourhood: enhancing EU actorness in the eastern borderlands

14-16 May 2020, Iasi, Romania

The Centre for European Studies within Faculty of Law from Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi (Romania) organizes the 9th EURINT edition.
The event is part of the EURINT conference series which was successfully launched in 2013 in the frame of the Jean Monnet Life Long Learning Programme. Since 2013, the EURINT conference series has established itself as a visible academic event in the field of European Studies and in this regard we aim at developing it into a traditional conference series.
EURINT 2020 | EU and its neighbourhood: enhancing EU actorness in the eastern borderlands will, first, seek to bring additional insights into the way the EU policies are being framed and adapted in order to hamper the imbalances at the level of the borderlands between the EU and non-EU states in Eastern Europe. Second, it will assess the implication of the neighbourhood instruments in the borderland regions and try to provide answers about level of attractiveness the EU’s specific policies and instruments.
Since the EU’s essential values such as good governance, democracy, economic prosperity and security have been constantly under pressure in the past years in the Eastern neighbourhood of the EU, it is interesting to gauge whether the EU can be still regarded as a source of political and economic support for the countries in the region.
Last but not least, the conference will offer the possibility to discuss ways of improving the effectiveness of the neighbourhood instruments in relation to its Eastern Partnership countries and debate whether the current design of these instruments is still suitable for a significantly altered region marked by the current geopolitical tensions between the Euro-Atlantic community and Russia.

The deadline for online registration and submission of extended abstracts is 8 March 2020. The presented papers will be published either in CES Working Papers (indexed in numerous international databases) or in the Conference Proceedings (indexed in Web of Science).
More information about the conference could be found on the website.

Governments of the world stand in front of an immense task: how to optimize and prioritize public information so that it has the desired impact? COVID19-related fake stories and official measures have emerged around the globe. Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.
