Shabbat Shalom Europe!

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 6 maggio 2019

The 2019 Eurovision Song Contest is expected to attract over 10,000 international tourists between the 14th and 18th of May, and for many, this will be their first visit to Israel. The Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality In collaboration with Eatwith would like to offer the incoming tourists of all backgrounds the unique experience of an authentic Shabbat meal at the home of host families in Tel Aviv.
Shabbat dinners, held at sunset on Fridays, are a cultural staple of many Israeli families – secular and religious. Most local families gather together with family and friends on a weekly basis. The Shabbat Dinner project will match tourists of any religion and cultural background with local host families for a meaningful night around a Shabbat dinner table. Tourists from around the world will take part in a unique immersive experience and will enjoy a home cooked meal while learning about Jewish traditions that have been observed for centuries. This project aligns with the growing travel trend of experiential tourism, where tourists seek to be immersed in the local culture and are on the lookout for authentic experiences. Ron Huldai, The Mayor of Tel Aviv-Yafo: “We are working hard in order to make sure that the Eurovision Song Contest will be an unforgettable experience for everyone, including the local residents who wish to be a part of this major tourism boom. The Shabbat Dinners Project is one of the many ways to connect the thousands of tourists to Tel Aviv families and introduce them to the wonderful Jewish tradition of Shabbat in Israel. By the way, I already told Yael, my wife, to not make plans on the Friday before the Eurovision final, because we will be cooking!”

The battle for Europe’s future

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 maggio 2019

Thierry Chopin, special advisor at the Jacques Delors Institute, Nicolò Fraccaroli, PhD candidate in Economics at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Nils Hernborg, Master student in International Economic Policy at Paris School of International Affairs, Sciences Po, and Jean-François Jamet author of several books and articles on European integration and the Economic and Monetary Union, highlight the forces at work in this campaign for the European elections. This paper investigates the practical implications of the political dividing lines (cleavages) and expected outcomes ahead of the European Parliament elections of 23-26 May 2019. These dynamics will determine the political balance and direction of the new European Parliament and European Commission for the next five years.
For this purpose, we first provide novel projections of the composition of the future European Parliament, both with and without the UK, as the UK’s participation remains unclear at this stage in view of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit. We then compare these projections to the current composition of the European Parliament, showing that the future Parliament will likely be more fragmented, less pro-European, and contain a larger number of anti-establishment right-wing Members of the European Parliament.
The composition of the future European Parliament is however only partially informative of the balance of power that will underpin European politics in the next legislative term. Future coalitions and majorities needed to appoint the European Commission and vote legislation will in fact depend on the dominant ideological cleavages. We hence analyse the evolution of cleavages in the European Union from a historical and political science perspective and outline their potential political consequences. Notably, changes in the political landscape could lead majorities to be based on cleavages related to societal values on selected topics. The latter may end-up reviving the left-right divide on policy choices related to salient issues such as immigration, compared to differences of views on European integration which are expected to underpin majorities on EU constitutional issues such as the coalition necessary to appoint the next European Commission.

China’s bold ambitions to lead in digital technologies – a challenge for Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 13 aprile 2019

Berlin. China’s efforts at home and abroad to become a global leader in digital technologies is a challenge for Europe. The ambitions of telecommunications giant Huawei to participate in building European 5G networks are just one example of many, say MERICS researchers Kristin Shi-Kupfer and Mareike Ohlberg, authors of a new MERICS study, “China’s digital rise. Challenges for Europe.” Shi-Kupfer, who heads the MERICS research area on politics, society, and media, and research associate Ohlberg show that China’s digital ambitions are state-driven. They examine the close connection within the IT sector between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the state, and private companies and show that China’s digital rise is not only spurred by economic interests but also by political goals to become a leading superpower in research and technology.
Civil-military integration in particular has been on the national agenda of state and party leader Xi Jinping since 2014. For example, China wants to take the lead in dual-use technologies and quantum cryptography, advance its cyber-warfare capabilities, and use Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a weapon. According to the MERICS study, China also wants to use its capabilities domestically to implement its vision of cyber domination and social control. This includes the Social Credit System, which the leadership wants to roll out nationwide in the coming years. For China, digitization is a means to achieve several goals at once: creating new engines of growth, achieving technological independence, social control, and international leadership in digital technologies.
China has invested disproportionately in technological innovation in recent years. For quantum cryptography research alone, China has provided at least an estimated USD 50 billion of funding, that’s ten times as much as the United States has made available. In AI, China filed around 30,000 patents last year, two and a half times more than the US. All these efforts are beginning to pay off: The People’s Republic is already considered the leading digital marketplace and home to a third of all startups with a market evaluation above USD one billion. Soon, the country could become the world leader in digital key technologies. At the same time, Beijing is changing the global technology landscape by pushing blockchain, the Internet of Things and 5G standards and by filling key positions in relevant international institutionHowever, China’s digitization strategy also faces setbacks: Risks to innovation are the increased control of the CCP over private companies and the inefficient allocation of capital. For the foreseeable future, China will remain dependent on foreign core technologies. Western industrialized countries are increasingly concerned about potential security risks, criticizing the lack of data protection and the lack of ethical standards in China. A push back against China’s digitization and technology may only just have begun, say Shi-Kupfer and Ohlberg. But how should Europe deal with these challenges? What consequences does China’s digital progress have for European politics, the economy and security? Shi-Kupfer and Ohlberg say that China could become a serious threat if the country continues its path of seeking technological autonomy, rather than reciprocity and cooperation. The risks for Europe are compounded by the fact that the EU has no coordinated ecosystem for digital innovation and does not speak with one voice on China. If Europe does not catch up on key digital technologies, it risks losing out, or worse getting crushed between China and the US, warn Ohlberg and Shi-Kupfer. European member states would therefore have to make the strengthening of the European digital market a priority, expand cybersecurity cooperation with allied third countries and make data protection and ethical standards prerequisites for cooperation with China.

“Europe Online Payment Methods 2019”

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 febbraio 2019

Credit or debit cards and PayPal were the top two payment methods accounting for nearly three-quarters of E-Commerce sales in Europe in 2018, according to recent data cited in the report. However, there was also a significant variance in online shoppers’ preference for payment methods by country. In the Netherlands, for example, online banking method iDEAL beat both digital wallets and cards in terms of usage in E-Commerce and in Poland, local fast transfer services such as PayU and Przelewy24 were in the lead.
Although Europe lags behind other global regions, such as Asia-Pacific, in terms of mobile payment adoption, the use of payments on smartphones, tablets and wearables is rising, as the report shows. Scandinavian nations and the UK are among the leaders of this trend, especially when it comes to making mobile payments in-store. Also, consumers in emerging economies across Europe show interest in mobile wallets. In Russia, the use of Google Pay, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay by connected consumers is already in the double-digits.
Overall, surveys cited in the report indicate that digital buyers across Europe want online sellers to offer a variety of payment methods at the checkout. More than one in five online shoppers in France are more likely to visit an online store that supports alternative payment methods to credit cards. Additionally, three-quarters of UK buyers prefer E-Commerce websites with a range of payment options.At the same time, shoppers are wary of the safety of their payment details on the Internet. A double-digit share of online buyers in Spain value security over both the speed and comfort of the payment process, and more than 50% of shoppers in Sweden try to avoid entering card details on E-Commerce sites.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte: “Europe must listen to the people”

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 12 febbraio 2019

giuseppe conte.jpgIn a plenary debate on the future of Europe, the Italian Prime Minister said: “This is a valuable opportunity to reverse the process of detachment between rulers and governed, which if fed could lead to the European project imploding”. The prerequisite for relaunching it, are “solidarity and cohesion between the member states”.
Foreign policy
Among the challenges to be tackled to galvanise the European integration process, Conte mentioned the need for a common EU seat in the UN Security Council, strengthening relations with the USA, a strong dialogue with Russia and China and the creation of a true European common defence.
Migration
Conte stressed the need for a stable solution to manage migration flows, including so-called secondary movements, based on real solidarity between member states. He also asked for a new approach to Africa’s problems, through a partnership of equals.
Economy and growth
Overcoming austerity means “balancing growth and stability” and committing to the values of social solidarity and sustainable development, said Conte.

More powers to the EP
He concluded by saying that the European Parliament should have more powers, including the right of inquiry and the right to initiate legislation, in order to restore Europe’s credibility in the eyes of its citizens. (photo copyright: European Union 2019 – Source: EP)

Data protection: MEPs endorse modernisation of Council of Europe convention

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 7 febbraio 2019

Civil Liberties MEPs recommended giving green light to EU countries to ratify the protocol amending the Council of Europe data protection convention.The amending protocol aims to modernise and harmonise the Council of Europe data protection convention (Convention 108) in response to emerging privacy challenges, and to ensure it is adequately applied. Its adoption will also facilitate the exchange of personal data based on appropriate safeguards, MEPs say.They also underline the new protocol will ease data sharing between the EU and non-EU parties to the convention. Moreover, the amending text introduces the possibility for the EU and other international organisations to join the convention.Under the currents rules only states can be parties of the data protection convention which is why the EU cannot sign or ratify the amending protocol. In the recommendation, adopted on Monday by unanimity of 44 votes, MEPs gave consent to EU countries to ratify the protocol.
The recommendation now needs to be approved by the Parliament as a whole after which the Council can authorise Member States to ratify the amending protocol.

“Top Employer Europe 2019” e “Top Employer Italia 2019”

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 4 febbraio 2019

Boehringer Ingelheim Italia è stata ufficialmente certificata dal Top Employers Institute, “Top Employer Europe 2019” e “Top Employer Italia 2019”, per le proprie eccellenze nelle condizioni di lavoro.Le aziende certificate Top Employer si distinguono per l’impegno a fornire le migliori condizioni di lavoro ai propri dipendenti e per l’attuazione di Best Practice focalizzate sullo sviluppo e sul benessere delle persone.Top Employers Institute, ente globale ed indipendente di certificazione delle eccellenze in ambito HR, analizza e valuta le aziende attraverso la HR Best Practice Survey che prevede oltre 100 domande relative a 600 Best Practice in 10 ambiti delle risorse umane: Talent Strategy, Workforce Planning, Talent Acquisition, On-Boarding, Learning & Development, Performance Management, Leadership Development, Career & Succession Management, Compensation & Benefits, Culture.Top Employers Institute esamina l’implementazione di queste Best Practice HR e come vengono supportate attraverso gli strumenti di Strategy, Ownership, Practices, Measurement and Technology. Le aziende candidate, per raggiungere la Certificazione, devono raggiungere lo standard minimo richiesto da Top Employers Institute.
Il fattore comune delle aziende Top Employer è quello di essere impegnate a creare e sviluppare le proprie strategie, con esperienze d’eccellenza, mirate a creare un ambiente e condizioni di lavoro in grado di favorire la crescita e lo sviluppo dei propri dipendenti.
“E questo è quello che rientra nei valori fondamentali della cultura aziendale di Boehringer Ingelheim, che da sempre è attenta al benessere dei propri collaboratori, conciliando le responsabilità professionali con la vita oltre il lavoro – dichiara Antonio Barge, Direttore HR di Boehringer Ingelheim Italia -. L’attenzione al benessere dei collaboratori si concretizza in iniziative pensate partendo dalle loro esigenze reali, quali una flessibilità oraria giornaliera e altre modalità di lavoro come part time e il lavoro da casa, esteso a tutti i livelli, compatibilmente con le attività svolte, e senza limiti di giornate usufruibili nel corso dell’anno, ovviamente questo è possibile solo con uno stretto rapporto di fiducia tra i collaboratori e i propri capi”.Tra i vari servizi offerti, il “salvatempo” è nato con l’obiettivo di alleggerire i collaboratori da alcune incombenze pratiche quotidiane, come la lavanderia o il pagamento di bollettini postali.La filosofia di supporto alla persona si concretizza anche con iniziative mirate al sostegno in particolari momenti della vita, come ad esempio la genitorialità, con un programma che offre ai neogenitori un supporto psicologico per affrontare con serenità l’arrivo di un figlio.Boehringer Ingelheim è stata, inoltre, “pioniera” in Italia nel dare vita a un nido aziendale, così come, più di recente, a lanciare un campus estivo per i figli dei collaboratori e introducendo nuovi permessi per assistere non solo i figli ma anche i famigliari anziani.L’azienda, oltre a ciò, ha attivato da anni un programma di visite specialistiche per la prevenzione oncologica. Recentemente è stato ampliato il pacchetto assicurativo che oltre all’infortunio professionale e extraprofessionale copre il rischio vita per eventi diversi dall’infortunio. Non ultimo, per la sede di Milano, viene incoraggiato l’utilizzo dei mezzi pubblici, con sconti sugli abbonamenti e mettendo a disposizione un servizio di navetta dalla fermata della metropolitana alla sede.
