14-04-2021 13:30 - EPRS online policy roundtable: Negotiating the 2021-27 MFF and NGEU

Άλλη δραστηριότητα - EPRS
EPRS online event

This policy roundtable is the first of two EPRS events looking at the political and economic significance of the EU's Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for the seven years 2021-27 and the new, 750 billion euro recovery fund known as 'Next Generation EU'. The first event is focussed on the complex negotiations in 2019-20 that led to agreement on the MFF and NGEU. [...]

Αναλυτικότερα

[...] It will be opened by David Sassoli, the President of the European Parliament, with a panel of practitioners and experts - including Antonio Tajani, the former EP President and now Chair of the EP Conference of Committee Chairs - reflecting on the positions taken by the various EU institutions during the negotiations, how the eventual deal was struck, and what novel features characterise the outcome. Particularly noteworthy in the latter context are the EU's new ability to borrow on the financial markets, the link established between EU spending and the rule of law, and the commitment to introduce new types of own resource. The second roundtable, to be held on Tuesday 4 May, will look at the process of delivering the MFF and NGEU over the years ahead.

Αναλυτικότερα

Co-chaired by Andrius KUBILIUS (MEP) and Herbert DORFMANN (MEP & STOA Panel member)

Novel applications of genome editing, in particular of CRISPR-Cas9, have reinvigorated debate concerning these technologies. This event will seek to identify those issues and challenges arising from the application of genome engineering to crops that are in need of particular attention. It will include a presentation of the science behind genome editing and its applications, and will consider the possible benefits, as well as societal concerns, expected from these applications. Moreover, it will discuss ways current EU legislation can address these issues and challenges to better prepare for the widespread use of these novel technologies, and ensure that it is beneficial to society and their risks are addressed properly.

22-04-2021 13:45 - Joint FEMM-EMPL Public Hearing on Pay Transparency

Ακρόαση - FEMM EMPL
Miniature people with a stack of coins

On 22 April 2021, the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM) and the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs (EMPL) will organize a joint hearing on the Commission proposal for a Pay Transparency Directive.

Αναλυτικότερα

On 4 March 2021, the European Commission published the "Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council to strengthen the application of the principle of equal pay for equal work or work of equal value between men and women through pay transparency and enforcement mechanisms".

The right to equal pay between women and men for equal work or work of equal value is one of the EU's founding principles enshrined in the Treaty of Rome. The requirement to ensure equal pay is set out in Directive 2006/54/E. Despite the legal framework, the effective implementation and enforcement of this principle in practice remains a challenge in the EU, with lack of pay transparency as one of the main obstacles. The gender pay gap in the EU is at around 14%.

Αναλυτικότερα

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for European health policy decisions to be guided by scientific and clinical experts.

Aim of the Part I of the workshop is to inform policymakers about the new In Vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR) and its consequences for the EU health system. The application date for the new IVDR is set for May 2022. This regulation contains new provisions to enhance the safety of diagnostics in the EU, and will affect health professionals, academics, labs, industry, and patients.

Part II of the workshop will debate the importance of evidence-based health policies, looking at three case studies; the EU cooperation on health technology assessment (HTA); the use of clinical real-world data to guide healthcare policies; and the need for better evaluation and regulation of artificial intelligence in medicine.

Εργαστήριο - STOA

Αναλυτικότερα

In the last years, quite a lot of scientific knowledge made its way to the greater public raising interest in the human microbiomes, which is mostly understood as the universe of gut bacteria that determine our health status and wellbeing, our immune and hormonal systems. The microbiomes, are co-working key players in many natural processes within agriculture, food and drinking systems, waste degradation, recycling, and material creation.

Besides the production of more healthy, natural, and sustainable foods, innovations in agriculture and crop productions can already be seen with examples in plant control through bio-pesticides or climate-friendly waste degradation systems reusing and recycling materials and energy. Scientists are striving for discoveries in microbiological and microbial systems, and many exciting microbiome-related innovations can be expected in the next decades with relevant contributions to solve the challenges in human health, sustainable food production, biodiversity, and climate change.

The STOA workshop is organised in two sessions, the first will discusses the clinical implications of microbiomes, the second, will analyses the economic and regulatory aspects of microbiomes.
