Europe cannot afford more delays and cuts to future EU budget

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 ottobre 2019

European citizens want to live in a greener more inclusive and smarter continent and demand the EU play its part by providing sufficient investment. This is why, during the European Committee of the Regions’ plenary session (CoR) held in Brussels today, local and regional leaders, the EU’s budget Commissioner and leading members of the European Parliament urged national governments to drop any tactical positioning and agree a timely and forward looking agreement on the EU budget 2021-2027.
EU’s regional and local leaders raised serious concerns about the sluggish speed of the negotiations on the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), which sets the expenditure ceilings for all EU policies over the years 2021-2027, during debates with EU budget Commissioner Gunther Oettinger and the Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee for Regional Development (REGI), Younous Omarjee. The cuts initially proposed by the European Commission also risk being much deeper if Member States do not agree to increase their contributions and introduce new revenues, such as plastic or web taxes, to fund new policies and fill the financial gap left by Brexit.”Austerity, stifling public investment and a lack of European solidarity has held back economic growth, social progress and regional equality which has exacerbated populism. The decision on the next EU budget will now be the ultimate test of the new European leadership and define the level of the EU’s ambition for the coming years. Cuts will hold back the ability of regions and cities to deliver an inclusive, cohesive and sustainable future at a time when citizens demand results”, CoR President Karl-Heinz Lambertz said. He added that EU national contributions of 1% of the EU27’s Gross National Income (GNI) – demanded by increasing number of national government– would be “pitiful for 500 million Europeans” as he reiterated the CoR’s call for a budget worth 1.3% of EU27 GNI, a position shared by the European Parliament
During the debate, Commissioner Oettinger explained that without securing EU27 national contributions of at least 1.114% of GNI in the next multiannual EU budget, as initially proposed by the European Commission, the support for the new EU priorities would be severely impaired. “Those who want to reduce the EU budget to 1% of the EU27 GNI ignore the need to provide a response to Europe’s new challenges and the Brexit gap which alone will leave a shortfall of €84bn over the next seven years”.He called on local and regional leaders to pressure their national governments to no longer delay making a decision on the next EU budget, “It is already 5 to midnight. If a decision is not agreed by the end of the year, we risk a significant delay in the start of the implementation of the new programmes that is even more needed as Europe is facing economic stagnation.”REGI chair, Younous Omarjee, said: “The European Union’s goal is to build an economy that delivers cohesion, serving the regions, territories and their citizens. Cohesion should not be at the service of economy but, on the contrary, the economy should be at the service of cohesion. We should not forget to remind the Heads of State and government and the European Commission of this”.The risk of further reductions to European Structural and Investment Funds were also discussed the day before on Tuesday 7 October, in a joint meeting between the European Parliament’s Committee on Regional Development and the CoR’s Commission for Territorial Cohesion Policy and EU Budget organised in the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities 2019.

QIAGEN’s New QIAstat-Dx Gastrointestinal Panel Demonstrates Excellent Performance in Multicenter Clinical Study in Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 18 agosto 2019

QIAGEN (NYSE: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA) today announced the publication of a multicenter clinical study demonstrating the accuracy of its QIAstat-Dx syndromic testing solution for diagnosing the causes of acute gastroenteritis. The QIAstat-Dx Gastrointestinal Panel delivered high performance compared to other, existing multiplex tests in this study which evaluated 385 patient samples at university hospital laboratories across Europe.The study showed the QIAstat-Dx Gastrointestinal Panel was highly sensitive (98.2% positive percent agreement, a measure of ability to detect pathogens) and specific (99.9% negative percent agreement, a measure of ability to identify true negative samples). Multiple pathogens were identified in nearly one-third of the patient samples that tested positive. Authors emphasized the system’s “ease of use” and that the system and assay yielded results in approximately one hour. The study also cited the ability of the QIAstat-Dx panel to provide cycle threshold (CT) values and amplification curves, quantitative indications of the amount of nucleic acids detected, as a unique advantage in interpreting diagnostic findings for gastrointestinal syndromes, which can be complicated by co-infections or false positives in testing. These are important capabilities which other currently widely used syndromic platforms do not offer.The article, “Multicenter evaluation of the new QIAstat Gastrointestinal Panel for the rapid syndromic testing of acute gastroenteritis,” has been accepted for publication by the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (EJCMID) and is available online. The study was conducted at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre in Denmark and University Hospital of Bonn in Germany.
Introduced in Europe in early 2018 and the United States in mid-2019, the QIAstat-Dx system enables fast, cost-effective and easy-to-use syndromic testing with novel Sample to Insight solutions. The QIAstat-Dx Gastrointestinal Panel provides differential detection of more than 20 bacterial, viral and parasitic pathogens implicated in gut infections. The panel is already available in Europe. The QIAstat-Dx Respiratory Panel, for detection of more than 20 common viral and bacterial infections in respiratory syndromes, is currently available in Europe and the United States.QIAGEN is developing a broad pipeline of planned assays for the QIAstat-Dx content menu, spanning infectious diseases, oncology, companion diagnostics and other disease areas.

KCI Expands Surgical Incision Management Offering in Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 17 agosto 2019

KCI, an Acelity Company, today announced the availability of two additional PREVENA™ Therapy offerings in Europe: the PREVENA DUO™ Incision Management System with PEEL & PLACE™ Dressing – 13cm and PREVENA PLUS PEEL & PLACE™ Incision Management System – 35cm. Both of the new introductions incorporate the proven clinical benefits of PREVENA™ Therapy, providing clinicians with solutions to meet the evolving needs of post-surgical incision management. PREVENA™ Therapy helps hold incision edges together and protects incisions from external infectious sources. The PREVENA DUO™ System is the first single use negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) system designed specifically for the simultaneous management of two closed surgical incisions, configured to help reduce post-operative complications in bilateral procedures, such as vascular harvesting, breast reconstruction and orthopedic trauma surgeries.
PREVENA PLUS PEEL & PLACE™ System – 35cm is suitable for long incisions commonly used in revision surgery, while also providing higher exudate storage capacity. The PREVENA PLUS™ System offers the proven effectiveness of negative pressure wound therapy with improved versatility, portability, and flexibility.
Surgical site infections (SSIs) present a significant burden in Europe, with more than 500,000 cases in Europe each year.1 SSIs are associated with longer post-operative hospital stays, reduced patient quality of life, may necessitate additional surgical procedures, may require intensive care, and can result in higher morbidity and mortality.2 Infections, the most common surgical site complication, account for up to 20 percent of all of healthcare-associated infections and cost the NHS up to £700 million each year.3,4 Recently, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published a Medtech Innovation Briefing (MIB) on PREVENA™ Incision Management System. The MIB assesses the most recent published evidence on the technology and surmises that PREVENA™ Therapy can lead to significantly reduced incision site complications in comparison to standard care dressings. Clinical specialists invited to add comment in the report also agreed that using PREVENA™ Therapy would likely lead to cost savings as a result of the reduction in surgical site complications (SSCs) and a reduced need for dressing changes.

I Seminari di Europa sono destinati non solo alla comunità accademica ma aperti alla cittadinanza, e in modo particolare agli alunni e ai docenti delle scuole del territorio. La partecipazione è valida per gli insegnanti (previa iscrizione sulla piattaforma ministeriale S.O.F.I.A.) a titolo di aggiornamento professionale.

Shabbat Shalom Europe!

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 6 Mag 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 Mag 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.
