Digitising Industry (Industry 4.0) and Cybersecurity

18-10-2017

The digitalisation of manufacturing industry, i.e. employing in depth digital technologies for the performance of good production raises additional cybersecurity questions. Currently EU cybersecurity policies are mainly targeting network security and large infrastructures of public interest, with little emphasis on the needs of a digitised industry. Still, recent policy developments do provide framework of possibly covering these needs.

Multilingualism and language learning is an important policy area fostered by the European Union. One tool used in order to assess learners’ performance in language learning is the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The CEFR was developed by the Council of Europe to provide unity in educational and cultural matters among its member states with regard to foreign language learning. After a pilot scheme involving extensive field consultation, the framework was officially published in 2001. The CEFR marked a major turning point in describing specifications of language learning targets, which are divided into six levels. It has now become a common reference instrument for organising language teaching and certification in many European Union Member States.

Focus on: The Challenges of Connected TV

In connected TV the boundaries between online and TV disappear, giving rise to the question of whether the existing regulations are prepared for this.

The big question remains ...

Connected TV is an internet-enabled TV which for the first time connects linear and non-linear media services in one device.

In fact, the Audiovisual Media Services (AVMS) Directive regulating the linear signals is quite strict, but regulations drafted for non-linear services are not adapted to the present and future situation. The big question remains whether it makes sense to keep this division and how to develop legislation, and the AVMS Directive in particular for the challenges of the future.
