Due to the success of the initiative, the pilot was continued as the Daphne Programme for the period 2000-2003 with a funding of 20 million euros. It was followed by the Daphne II Programme 2004-2006 (average annual budget of €10 million) and later by the Daphne III programme for 2007-2013 (with average annual budget of €16.7 million). The current programme covers the period 2014-2020 as a part of the Rights, Equality and Citizenship (REC) Programme.

Poster for the Public Hearing on the Future of Small-Scale Fisheries in the EU

On 26 September 2018, representatives from 18 Mediterranean and Black Sea countries as well as the EU signed in Malta a Ministerial Declaration aimed at implementing a Regional Action Plan for Small-Scale Fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.

Más detalles

The new proposal for the EMFF also foresees to take better account of the specific challenges faced by small-scale coastal fisheries, i.e. the preferential financial treatment to small-scale coastal fisheries will be kept after 2020.
It's therefore a good moment for a discussion at the European Parliament. There's an urgent need to take local specificities into account, to help improving the livelihoods of fishermen, as well as for facilitating the generational renewal in an ageing workforce.
The role of small-scale fisheries in supporting scientific research and in data collection is also highly relevant.

23-01-2019 16:00 - Public hearing on security policies and human rights : difficulties and opportunities

Audiencia - DROI SEDE

The main objective of the hearing is to identify human rights challenges and best practices related to EU security policies in third countries.

Más detalles

The focus of the current European external security agenda is mainly the fight against terrorism, organised crime and cybercrime as well as border management. However, more consideration of human security is needed, as outlined by the UNDP's 1994 Human Development Report, including the threat posed by interpersonal violence, especially gender-based violence. This hearing will therefore widen the focus to human rights and human security as an integral part of security policy.

Más detalles

A patent licensing system that is conducive to the roll-out of the Internet of Things is key in placing Europe as a global leader on the new technologies market. Standards Essential Patents have a central role to play in that respect, for the benefit of European innovators, patent implementers and end-users alike. The event will aim at hearing experts on the issues at stake and on developments since the publication of the Communication.

Poster for Workshop - Implementation and Impact of EMFF Measures on the Common Fisheries Policy

The European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) is the EU’s financial instrument supporting fisheries and maritime policies for the period 2014-2020 with a total budget of EUR 8.6 billion, and combining direct and shared management. Under the shared management mode, the Member States (MSs) and the Commission jointly administer 89% of the Union’s contribution to ensure consistency between EU objectives, national priorities and regional and local needs.

More than half of the programming cycling has elapsed. At this stage, the information on EMFF performance is limited. The Commission released in June 2018 the legislative proposal for the 2021-2027 fund.
This study aims to provide the Committee on Fisheries with relevant information and criteria for the consideration of the legislative proposal, in particular with the performance assessment of the current EMFF and the analysis of the new fund for consideration of the proposal.

Seminario - STOA

Science Week at the European Parliament (5-7 February 2019). The Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA Panel) has decided to organise a series of scientific events during under the name of ‘Science Week at the European Parliament’. STOA will organise these events in co-operation with the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, and with the European Research Council (ERC).

Más detalles

The 'Science Week at the European Parliament' will combine the 'Brussels Week' of the MEP-scientist pairing scheme (5-7 February 2019), the JRC 'Science meets Parliaments' event (6-7 February 2019), and a STOA event with the ERC on 7 February 2019. The essence of these events is to strengthen the structured dialogue between scientists and policy-makers, with the aim to raise awareness about politically relevant, cutting-edge scientific issues and about the importance of science for evidence-informed policy-making.

During the 'Brussels Week', paired scientists will have an opportunity to follow their MEP counterparts in their daily political activities, and gain an understanding of the EU science, technology and research policy framework, including, in particular, EP work in this area. Your visit will include the following activities:

 attending various meetings with MEPs, EP staff and science journalists, and presenting your research work and outcomes;

 receiving an introduction to the work of the EP, by the MEP and his/her assistants, as well as by EP officials (STOA, other staff of the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), committee secretariats etc.);

 participating in 'pitching sessions' between science journalists and scientists, organised by STOA's new European Science-Media Hub (ESMH);

 when not attending meetings organised by STOA, the scientists will be invited to ʽshadowʼ their MEP to various political group or other meetings, on the basis of the MEP's availability;

 a last meeting, attended by scientists, MEPs or their assistants, and STOA officials, is to assess the week and identify its positive aspects, as well as elements for improvement.

Science meets Parliaments. In order to promote a culture of evidence-informed policy making, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission together with the European Parliament's Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) launched the Science meets Parliaments initiative at the European Parliament in Brussels in 2015. The objective of the initiative is to build closer links between scientists and policy-makers at EU, national and regional levels and enhance the role of science in policy through regular dialogue with decision-makers. This year the event will discuss how science can play a bigger role in 21st century policy making. The event offers a series of discussions ranging from how artificial intelligence may impact our lives to building resilient societies and engaging citizens in decision-making. It will be accompanied by an exhibition featuring the contribution of science to making sound and successful public policies which directly benefit our lives.
