Full title: President Biden’s first 100 days: What are think tanks expecting?

As the new US President, Joe Biden, completes his first week in office, EPRS is organising a roundtable with four leading Washington think tankers, who will paint a picture of the new President's likely initiatives in his first one hundred days in the White House. [...]

[...] Will the new President be able to address the deep divisions revealed in American politics and society by the Trump years and the recent Presidential election? What will be the key points of divergence and continuity compared with the last four years? How ambitious will the Biden Administration be on climate change and multilateralism? How far will it prioritise relations with Europe over other foreign-policy goals? How will it handle China? How will trade fit into the picture? How constrained will it be by Congress, even if the Democrats now have a majority in both houses. Join EPRS for a stimulating discussion on these and other issues as the United States embarks on a new course under President Biden.

Mai multe detalii

Since March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic and related confinement measures have shaken European economies and unequally impacted individuals across Europe. The elderly and persons with disabilities have been the most affected groups, and those living in residential institutions have massively suffered from social exclusion and loneliness, degraded quality of care, even neglect and abuses. This hearing will shed light on this situation. The in-depth discussion should provide insights on how to address this situation and overcome the underlying structural causes.

Mai multe detalii

Access for patients to high quality, affordable and timely cancer care is a key element in the fight against cancer. Good healthcare services improve patient outcomes, reduce the suffering and side effects of treatments as much as possible and enhance the quality of life for survivors. Good healthcare outcomes also contribute to the efficiency and sustainability of the health care systems.

Mai multe detalii

The European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIFs) and Horizon Europe, when operating individually, provide significant support for research, development, and innovation. Supporting synergies in their use and implementation may deliver additional gains in terms of innovation results, close the innovation gap in Europe, and promote economic growth.

However, to actively promote the combination of both funds is no simple matter given the different aims and nature of the funds. Further, the combination of various EU funding sources is complex due to differing rules, eligibility criteria, and time-frames (for calls, policy cycles, etc.) between EU-funded programmes.

Despite their differences, there are also major complementarities and synergies that should be utilized. Horizon Europe focuses on tackling major societal challenges, maximising the competitiveness impact of research and innovation and raising and spreading levels of excellence in the research base. ESIFs have a strong emphasis on governance via the smart specialisation process and the definition of clear objectives on building knowledge and innovation capacity.

However, the process of synergy is sluggish, with complex interactions existing between different innovation actors. The successful deployment of a strategic perspective combining different funding instruments and policy frameworks may substantially boost competitiveness, welfare and growth in the EU regions.

To achieve this objective, it is crucial to align strategies and implementation modalities and complement existing and future roadmaps. The aim of this meeting is to explore breakthroughs in the synergies between the Horizon Europe and regional policy instruments.

În conformitate cu articolul 193 din Regulamentul de procedură, o comisie poate organiza o audiere cu experți, atunci când acest lucru este considerat esențial pentru activitatea sa cu privire la o anumită chestiune. Audierile pot fi organizate și în comun, de două sau mai multe comisii. Majoritatea comisiilor organizează audieri regulate, deoarece acest lucru le permite să intre în contact cu experții și să aibă discuții cu privire la chestiunile-cheie. Această pagină vă pune la dispoziție toate informațiile disponibile privind audierile comisiilor, inclusiv programele, posterele și contribuțiile vorbitorilor.


Atelierele sunt organizate de departamentele tematice și sunt gestionate în conformitate cu Regulamentul financiar. Acestea nu au loc neapărat în public, însă pot avea loc în cursul reuniunii unei comisii.

Atelierele le permit deputaților să adreseze întrebări experților și să aibă un schimb de opinii cu aceștia pe teme legate de activitatea parlamentară sau pe teme de interes general.
