The historical relationship between artistic activities and technology development

03-05-2019

Understanding the past of art and technology can help us to navigate the present and future. Technology and art have always been linked, and are now more intertwined than ever before. Technology and humanity create and shape each other in profound ways. People are not distinct from the technologies they are surrounded by and use – they are also defined and shaped by them. The present study contributes to our understanding of the cyclic nature of the intertwining of technology and art, focussing on ...

Establishing a cybersecurity competence centre and a network of national coordination centres

19-02-2019

The Commission describes logically the significance of cyberdefence and the potential for improvement in this field for the EU. However, the impact assessment accompanying the proposal does not appear to have fully followed the requirements of the better regulation guidelines particularly as no open public consultation was conducted. The impact assessment presents a limited range of options as a result of a number of parameters that were pre-set from the outset and which could have constrained the ...

Achieving a sovereign and trustworthy ICT industry in the EU

20-12-2017

This study attempts to identify and assess policy options for the EU to achieve cyber-resilience, and to develop capabilities, and industrial and technological resources for a trustworthy EU cyberspace, with a view also to promoting core values, such as online privacy protection. The findings could form the basis for an assessment of alternative measures to improve the resilience of the European ICT industry and the EU's strategic decision-making capacity, and enhance the resilience of critical information ...

This study attempts to identify and assess policy options for the EU to achieve cyber-resilience, and to develop capabilities, and industrial and technological resources for a trustworthy EU cyberspace, with a view also to promoting core values, such as online privacy protection. The findings could form the basis for an assessment of alternative measures to improve the resilience of the European ICT industry and the EU's strategic decision-making capacity, and enhance the resilience of critical information technology networks. The study further reviews the current state of reciprocity between search engine services and individual customers. The ultimate aim of this study is to develop concrete policy options to be considered by EU institutions and Member States – and potentially to be used as background by EP committees for their legislative and own-initiative reports.

Public-private partnerships in research

17-05-2017

The EU public-private partnerships (PPPs) in research were set up in the context of the development of European Research Area policy in 2003 with two main objectives. First, they were to address the fragmentation of research efforts between the private and public sector and across borders. Second, they were to increase public and private investment in research activities to reach the target of 3 % of EU gross domestic product. The first PPPs – the European Technology Platforms and the Joint Technology ...

The EU public-private partnerships (PPPs) in research were set up in the context of the development of European Research Area policy in 2003 with two main objectives. First, they were to address the fragmentation of research efforts between the private and public sector and across borders. Second, they were to increase public and private investment in research activities to reach the target of 3 % of EU gross domestic product. The first PPPs – the European Technology Platforms and the Joint Technology Initiatives – were developed to achieve these objectives. The initial focus of the PPPs on research activities was broadened in 2005 with the introduction of a more comprehensive view of innovation. The European Institute of Innovation and Technology and its Knowledge and Innovation Communities were set up to embody this new vision by promoting the integration of research, innovation and education activities. The 2008 financial crisis demanded swift action to support investments in research and led to the establishment of the rapidly implemented contractual PPPs. By 2010, the focus on technology challenges had been replaced by the need to tackle societal challenges. The European Innovation Partnerships provided a new tool to better address these challenges by integrating all the actors of the innovation process. Around 70 EU PPPs in research help define common priorities and visions for EU, national and regional research and innovation activities. However, the multiplication of PPPs created a new form of fragmentation with different types of PPPs focusing on similar fields. The 3 % target has not been reached (currently at 2.03 %). The share of private investment in research has stagnated at around 55 % since 2004, whereas the share of the budget of the EU framework programme for research (FP) dedicated to the PPPs has more than doubled (9.1 % for FP7 versus 21.5 % for Horizon 2020). All these aspects will have to be considered when setting the budget for the PPPs in FP9.

Women in ICT

16-07-2012

The information and communication technologies sector is of increasing importance to virtually every sector of the economy. There is a high demand for highly-qualified workers to fill the increasing demand of this expanding sector and women, due to their currently low presence in ICT, constitute a pool of potential candidates. This briefing paper presents a brief overview of selected literature and best-practice cases proposed by the European Commission on the issue of how to attract more women ...

The information and communication technologies sector is of increasing importance to virtually every sector of the economy. There is a high demand for highly-qualified workers to fill the increasing demand of this expanding sector and women, due to their currently low presence in ICT, constitute a pool of potential candidates. This briefing paper presents a brief overview of selected literature and best-practice cases proposed by the European Commission on the issue of how to attract more women into ICT-related courses and consequently to a career in ICT. Two approaches are thus taken: firstly, an analysis of the presence of girls and young women in ICT-related courses and best practices on how to encourage them to pursue such academic path; secondly, an overview of the obstacles female workers face in their work and progression in ICT companies, and best-practice cases on how to attract more female qualified workers into the sector, how to ensure there is fair progression in their careers, and a good work-life balance.

This study addresses the new challenges stemming from data processing policies and systems falling in the scope of police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters in the EU Area of Freedom, Security and Justice. It identifies a set of common basic principles and standards for the genuine assurance of data protection in all the phases of EU policymaking and for the effective implementation of this fundamental right. The study puts forward a set of recommendations to guide the European Parliament’s role and legislative inputs into the upcoming revision of the EU legal framework on data protection, which is expected to be launched by the end of 2011.

This report summarises the presentations and discussions at a Workshop on ‘'Climate Change: Reduction of non-CO2 emissions’ held in the European Parliament in Brussels. The aim of the workshop was to exchange views with scientific and institutional experts, the European Commission and representatives from industry and non-profit organizations towards addressing efficiently these non-CO2 emissions. The workshop panel discussed how a number of early actions for non- CO2 emissions, complementing actions aiming at reducing long-term CO2 emissions, could offer a near-term solution to help curb the observed climate trends and thus avoiding further global warming. Of particular importance are HFCs, black carbon and pollutant gases that lead to formation of tropospheric ozone. The workshop heard the European Commission’s involvement in the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution and its recent focus on black carbon and tropospheric ozone precursors, but the need to present an integrated European policy encompassing all warming drivers (e.g. the non-CO2 emissions) in consistence with the 2°C target was stressed. For these non-CO2 emissions, scientific assessments show that the most substantial benefits will be felt immediately in and/or close to the regions where actions are taken to reduce emissions. Concerning HFCs, there was a general agreement that the Montreal Protocol has been more effective in protecting the climate in the past through the eradication of CFCs and can add to climate protection in the near future taking additional responsibility on the HCFs elimination.
