What if technologies replaced humans in elderly care?

08-10-2019

Could technologies respond to the challenges associated with the ageing European population? While future assistive technologies for elderly care are promising, current technologies are not used to their full potential. Effective change should target all social groups, not only the elderly. ‘One-size-fits-all’ approaches for technology and policy are not well suited to elderly care because everyone has different abilities and individual circumstances. The establishment of a defined profession of ...

Could technologies respond to the challenges associated with the ageing European population? While future assistive technologies for elderly care are promising, current technologies are not used to their full potential. Effective change should target all social groups, not only the elderly. ‘One-size-fits-all’ approaches for technology and policy are not well suited to elderly care because everyone has different abilities and individual circumstances. The establishment of a defined profession of experts in the application of assistive technologies for elderly care could play an important role in supporting the development of the sector.

After that process, those committees will judge the candidates' suitability for the role based on 'their general competence, European commitment and personal independence', as well as their 'knowledge of their prospective portfolio and their communication skills'. At the end of the hearings process, Parliament votes on the proposed Commission as a bloc, and under the Treaties may only reject the entire College of Commissioners, rather than individual candidates. The Briefing provides an overview of key issues in the portfolio areas, as well as Parliament's activity in the last term in that field. It also includes a brief introduction to the candidate.

What if we didn't need cows for our beef?

12-07-2019

With the help of cells from a single cow, scientists can produce 175 million hamburgers. What if we didn’t need cows for our beef? Technologies for producing cultured meat and dairy products will help feeding the world in a sustainable way. What if we could produce meat without farming? New technology within reach to produce meat with a very low eco-footprint

Politische Maßnahmen der EU im Interesse der Bürger: Gesundheits- und Sozialwesen

28-06-2019

Wenngleich das Gesundheits- und Sozialwesen in der Europäischen Union (EU) in erster Linie Aufgabe der einzelnen EU-Mitgliedstaaten ist, ergänzt die EU deren Politik, insbesondere in Bereichen mit einer grenzüberschreitenden Dimension. In einer kürzlich im Auftrag des Europäischen Parlaments durchgeführten Umfrage haben sich über zwei Drittel der Bürgerinnen und Bürger der EU für einen Ausbau der Maßnahmen der EU im Bereich Gesundheit und Soziales ausgesprochen.

Wenngleich das Gesundheits- und Sozialwesen in der Europäischen Union (EU) in erster Linie Aufgabe der einzelnen EU-Mitgliedstaaten ist, ergänzt die EU deren Politik, insbesondere in Bereichen mit einer grenzüberschreitenden Dimension. In einer kürzlich im Auftrag des Europäischen Parlaments durchgeführten Umfrage haben sich über zwei Drittel der Bürgerinnen und Bürger der EU für einen Ausbau der Maßnahmen der EU im Bereich Gesundheit und Soziales ausgesprochen. Die EU-Gesundheitspolitik hat die Förderung guter Gesundheit, den Schutz der Bürgerinnen und Bürger vor gesundheitlichen Gefahren und die Unterstützung dynamischer Gesundheitssysteme zum Ziel. Ihre Umsetzung erfolgt hauptsächlich über EU-Aktionsprogramme, derzeit im Rahmen des dritten Gesundheitsprogramms (2014–2020). Zu den Herausforderungen zählen die gesundheitliche Versorgung einer alternden Bevölkerung und die Verringerung der Inzidenz vermeidbarer chronischer Krankheiten. Seit 2014 wurden in einer Reihe von Bereichen Fortschritte erzielt, darunter Antibiotikaresistenz, Übergewicht bei Kindern, Gesundheitssysteme, Medizinprodukte und Impfungen. Die Maßnahmen der EU im Bereich der sozialen Sicherheit sind eng mit der Umsetzung der sogenannten europäischen Säule sozialer Rechte sowie mit den Entwicklungen auf dem Arbeitsmarkt verbunden. Die EU trägt zur Stärkung des sozialen Zusammenhalts bei und strebt nach der Förderung von Gleichheit und Solidarität durch angemessene, zugängliche und finanziell tragfähige Systeme der sozialen Sicherheit sowie durch Maßnahmen zur sozialen Eingliederung. Die Ausgaben der EU für die soziale Sicherung sind mit Arbeitsmarktmaßnahmen verknüpft. Obgleich bei Themen wie der Vereinbarkeit von Beruf und Privatleben und Chancengleichheit Fortschritte zu verzeichnen sind, bleibt noch viel zu tun. Die sozialen Sicherungssysteme müssen künftig besser an die neuen Gegebenheiten auf dem Arbeitsmarkt angepasst werden (weniger Arbeitsplätze in der verarbeitenden Industrie, atypische Verträge, „Plattformarbeit“ usw.). In ihrem Vorschlag für den mehrjährigen Finanzrahmen 2021–2027 plant die Europäische Kommission eine Aufstockung der Mittel, um die Beschäftigungschancen für Arbeitnehmer zu verbessern und den sozialen Zusammenhalt durch einen erweiterten „Europäischen Sozialfonds Plus“ zu stärken. Der Fonds würde auch die Finanzierung des eigenständigen Gesundheitsprogramms umfassen und hätte dabei zum Ziel, Synergien mit den anderen Bausteinen der europäischen Säule sozialer Rechte zu schaffen: Chancengleichheit und Zugang zum Arbeitsmarkt, faire Arbeitsbedingungen sowie soziale Sicherung und Eingliederung. Dies ist eine Aktualisierung eines früheren Briefings, das vor den Europawahlen 2019 veröffentlicht wurde.

What if policy anticipated advances in science and technology?

26-06-2019

What if blockchain revolutionised voting? What if your emotions were tracked to spy on you? And what if we genetically engineered an entire species? Science and policy are intricately connected.

What if blockchain revolutionised voting? What if your emotions were tracked to spy on you? And what if we genetically engineered an entire species? Science and policy are intricately connected. Via monthly 'What if' publications, the Scientific Foresight Unit (STOA; part of the European Parliamentary Research Service) draws Members of the European Parliament's attention to new scientific and technological developments relevant for policy-making. The unit also provides administrative support to the Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA), which brings together 25 Members from nine different parliamentary committees who share a strong interest in science and technology in the context of policy-making.
