Better tools for better Medicines. The Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI)

The European Commission and the pharmaceutical industry are entering into a pan-European strategic alliance to fund research in the health sector and accelerate the discovery and development of innovative medicines. This collaboration will bring together stakeholders on all levels to share knowledge and results. The benefits for patients will be significant, as it will further contribute to removing bottlenecks in the drug development process, thus providing patients with better medicines, faster. The boost in competitiveness could also be significant as resources for biopharmaceutical R&D conducted in Europe will be maximised.
A new video report from the European Commission's Directorate General for Research explains the aim and focus of the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) through an animated explanation of the drug development process. This is supported by statements of the IMI Founding Members and stakeholders, such as representatives from academia, patient organisations and SMEs.
Global R&D expenditure in the biopharmaceutical sector has steadily increased over the past 10 years. However, this has not been accompanied by a corresponding rise in the output of new medicines. The high failing rate of medicine contributes significantly to this declining productivity. Moreover, such failures are costly and the price tag of developing new drugs can be as high as €700 million, including the cost of failures.
IMI is a public-private partnership between the European community, represented by the European Commission, and the pharmaceutical industry, represented by the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA).The European Commission and EFPIA will each contribute €1 billion, resulting in total funding of €2 billion, for this groundbreaking venture. Funding from the European Commission's FP7 will be dedicated exclusively to public sector participants and SMEs, with the biopharmaceutical industry contributing €1 billion in R&D resources.On April 30th 2008the European Commission in Brussels will hold a technical briefing, where the scientific priorities of the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) for 2008 will be presented for the first time.

Healthy Workplaces. Good for you. Good for business

Each year in the European Union, 167,000 deaths are attributable to work-related accidents or illnesses, and the number of occupational accidents which result in over three days off work is estimated at 7 million.
Small and medium businesses feature prominently here, as they alone represent 82% of the total number of occupational accidents and 90% of the total number of fatal accidents. The construction, farming, transportation and health industries are among the sectors most affected.
Apart from the sometimes tragic individual consequences, the loss of earnings to employees and employers is considerable. The loss of income linked to work absences in fact costs European workers around a billion euros a year. As for employers, they have to bear the costs associated with sickness benefit, the replacement of absent staff and a loss of productivity, a good part of which is not covered by insurance.
Work-related illnesses and accidents are thus a heavy burden for the entire European economy.
Improving workers' health and safety is therefore a key element of the objectives in the area of growth and employment for the European Union. Improving health and safety at work is in effect supporting the growth and competitivity of each business, and therefore of the whole European Union.
This is just what the campaign by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is about, concerning risk assessment within every business. Indeed, assessment means raising awareness and bringing about accountability in employers in dealing with the possible dangers present in their businesses. While assessment is a simple approach that requires no special skills, what is at stake is considerable: it represents the first step in an occupational illness and accident prevention policy within each business. This campaign is an integral part of a much wider approach by the European Commission: a five-year strategy which is aiming for a 25% reduction in occupational accidents by 2012.

112 - European Emergency number

Why 112?
As European citizens are increasingly travelling to other countries, for holidays, business or pleasure, there is a need for a single number, identical across the European Union (EU), to call in an emergency. Instead of having to remember several different numbers, citizens now need only one, wherever they go.
What happens when you call 112?
People calling 112 are connected to an operator. Depending on the national civil protection services, the operator will either deal with the request directly or transfer it to one of the emergency services(ambulance, fire brigade, police). In many cases, operators are able to answer in more than one language.
What can people expect from 112?
EU Member States must ensure that any user of a fixed or a mobile phone is able to call 112 on their territory. In addition, 112 calls must be appropriately answered and handled. In practice, this means that these calls should be treated in the same way as calls to other (national) emergency numbers. The quality of response to emergency calls should be the same, irrespective of whether a national number on 112 is used. Emergency services need to know where a person is calling from. This is particularly important for calls from mobile phones, as the caller, especially in an emergency, may not know exactly where he or she is.
All EU countries are required to inform citizens (nationals and visitors) of the existence of 112 and in which situation people should call. Interviews: Fabio Colasanti, European Commission Director General for Information Society and Media;

Natura 2000: man and nature go together

The existence of many of these species is today at risk. The red list of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources includes over 800 animal species and 180 plant species in Europe that are slipping at various rates down the slope towards extinction. This is the case for half the species of mammals and a third of the species of reptiles, birds and fish. 79 European animals are "in serious danger of extinction", which means that it may prove impossible to maintain them in the wild within the next ten years: such is the case for the European sturgeon, the Mediterranean monk seal, the saw-fish, the leatherback turtle, the pardel lynx and many species of molluscs.The disappearance of species each day from the surface of the globe is a phenomenon known as "erosion of biodiversity". This process is happening in Europe. One way of helping nature to regain all its genetic richness is to protect the habitats of threatened species, notably by developing a network of protected natural areas.In 2004, the European Union initiated a network of protected sites called Natura 2000. But protection is not synonymous with the creation of sanctuaries. The objective of Natura 2000 is to maintain the ecological equilibrium of each site. To achieve this, the intervention of man, who has shaped nature since the Neolithic era, is often necessary, particularly in forested or rural areas. For example, meadows must be maintained by grazing cattle, water levels in humid zones must be maintained through aquaculture or rice growing.It is essential to preserve European biodiversity. This is not a question of aesthetic luxury; it is a necessity. The erosion of biodiversity is the sign of a breakdown in natural equilibrium. Man also depends on this equilibrium, which ensures the good quality of the agriculture and fishing that feed him, of the water that he drinks and the air that he breathes. Protecting habitats thus often involves the restoration of this natural equilibrium essential to man's well-being. Interviews: Patrick Murphy, European Commission, DG ENV, Nature & Biodiversity;

Sharing experience for a greener future, local communities for sustainable energy in Europe

As energy costs continue to rise and the need to fight climate change is becoming ever more pressing, more than a hundred cities in Europe are running sustainable energy use strategies based on the concept of "shining examples", joint action and shared experiences. The BELIEF project encourages all European local authorities, especially urban communities, to form "Sustainable Energy Communities" to improve local policy making, promote energy citizenship and stimulate the markets for sustainable energy. This report was filmed in two urban communities participating in BELIEF: the city of Dunkirk in France, and the city of Heidelberg in Germany. We met the people behind some of the many initiatives taken in these cities. In Heidelberg, Mayor Eckart Würzner presents the city's new fire station, a low-energy "passive house" standard building, and the venue of a recent Citizens' Festival with more than 10,000 visitors. This part of the video features also a transport company using green management techniques, a school providing sustainable energy classes, and citizens who have renovated their homes to allow them using green energy, The urban community of Greater Dunkirk shot thermal infrared images of the whole city from the air. Every citizen can consult these photos, which show just how much heat is lost from poorly insulated roofs of their buildings. We also spoke to a hotel-keeper who invested in solar panels and encouraged his peers from the region to do the same. This video report demonstrates the effectiveness of a citizen-to-citizen communication campaign. Energie-Cités, the association of European local authorities promoting sustainable local energy policies, will organise the BELIEF final conference in Cork, Ireland, on 9 April 2008 as part of the association's 13th annual meeting. The event will help European cities to share their success stories and prepare the ground for a more sustainable energy future. Interviews: Dr. Eckart Würzner, Mayor of Heidelberg

Waging war on the pay gap

In Belgium, women working on the cash desks and stacking the shelves in Delhaize supermarkets were dismayed to find out that they were earning less than their male colleagues. Now the company is using a new analytical classification system to re-evaluate its salary structure. In Spain, a new equality law was introduced in 2007. As well as insisting on equal pay for jobs of equal value, it introduces paternity leave for the first time and also sets targets for companies to include more women in the board room.
