The Historical Archives Unit (DG EPRS) and its Historical Library are organising a temporary exhibition on ‘100 Books on Europe to Remember’ in Strasbourg during the October I part session. Vice-President Valcárcel will officially open the exhibition on Tuesday 4 October, 17.30, in Espace Emilio Colombo (LOW 1st floor).
The '100 Books on Europe to Remember' project arose from a visit by the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, to the European Parliament's historical library collection in Luxembourg in April 2012. The visit highlighted a treasure-trove of remarkable books, pamphlets and other texts, many of which have made a significant contribution to the process of, or the understanding of, European integration. The idea emerged of making a selection of this material available to a wider public through a dedicated website (www.europarl.eu/100books).
The selection comprises academic and political works on the European idea, on European politics and policy, and on the history of the European integration process since 1945. It contains important books, articles, pamphlets and speeches, and takes into account the geographical, linguistic and intellectual spectrum of ideas and personalities in the European Union and beyond.
The '100 Books on Europe to Remember' is an ongoing project which will continue to be widened and deepened.

On 13 October, ITRE and ENVI are organising a hearing to look at the development of mobile Health in Europe and its potential for ensuring better prevention and monitoring through health and well-being apps. It will also look at some of the challenges, such as the issues of interoperability and big data/data protection.
The European Commission has been active on mHealth, publishing a Green Paper, holding a public consultation, paving the way for an industry-led code of conduct on mobile health apps as well as funding research activities in the domain under Horizon 2020.
This hearing is a good opportunity for the European Parliament to be part of a multi-stakeholder dialogue on overcoming the barriers to better integrated care.
Location: József Antall, room 4Q2

Under Rule 193 of the Rules of Procedure, a committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes, posters and contributions from speakers.
Workshops are organised by the policy departments and administered in accordance with the Financial Regulation. They are not necessarily held in public but may be held during a Committee meeting.
Workshops enable Members to put questions to and exchange views with experts on subjects associated with parliamentary business or subjects of current interest.
