20-11-2020

La convention du Conseil de l’Europe sur la prévention et la lutte contre la violence à l’égard des femmes et la violence domestique (convention d’Istanbul) est le premier instrument en Europe à établir des normes contraignantes visant spécifiquement à prévenir les violences fondées sur le genre, à protéger les victimes de violences et à sanctionner les auteurs.

À la suite de la signature de la convention par l’Union européenne en juin 2017, l’approbation du Parlement européen est requise pour l’adhésion de l’Union à la convention. Dans l’attente de la demande officielle d’approbation du Conseil, le Parlement a adopté une résolution intérimaire en septembre 2017 et a ensuite examiné les progrès réalisés sur la voie de l’adhésion de l’UE, en avril et en novembre 2019. L’adhésion de l’UE à la convention d’Istanbul est l’une des priorités de la nouvelle stratégie de l’UE en faveur de l’égalité hommes-femmes pour la période 2020-2025.

What if AI could help us become 'greener'?

20-11-2020

While some argue that AI can potentially be useful or even indispensable in ‘green transitions’, important questions remain open. Should AI be only used in resolving different specific problems (for example, intelligent pollinating robots replacing a declining bee population) or should AI be employed in ‘governing’ the sustainability of complex socio-economic systems such as mobility, food, and energy? While the latter option is currently technically unattainable and may be ethically dubious, it ...

While some argue that AI can potentially be useful or even indispensable in ‘green transitions’, important questions remain open. Should AI be only used in resolving different specific problems (for example, intelligent pollinating robots replacing a declining bee population) or should AI be employed in ‘governing’ the sustainability of complex socio-economic systems such as mobility, food, and energy?

Regenerative medicine (RM) is an interdisciplinary field that applies engineering and life science techniques to restore tissues and organs damaged by age, disease or trauma, as well as those with congenital defects. Promising data supports the future capability of using RM across a wide array of organ systems and contexts, including surface wounds, cardiovascular diseases and traumas and treatments for certain types of cancer.
