  • [01] OPEN DAYS 2008: 'Regions and cities in a challenging world'

    'Regions and cities in a challenging world' is the theme of OPEN DAYS 2008, announced today by Danuta Hübner, Commissioner for Regional Policy, and Luc Van den Brande, President of the EU Committee of the Regions. The sixth edition of the European Week of Regions and Cities, OPEN DAYS, will be held in Brussels from 6 to 9 October. This year, 217 regions and cities from 32 countries have signed up as partners, and participants are expected from many other countries. There will be 120 events in Brussels and around 250 local events all over Europe during OPEN DAYS, which has become the most important annual gathering of EU and regional policy-makers, experts and representatives of banking, business and civil society groups.

    [02] Securities markets: Commission proposes amendments to Settlement Finality Directive and Financial Collateral Directive (see MEMO/08/267)

    The European Commission has issued a proposal to amend the Settlement Finality Directive and the Financial Collateral Directive to strengthen the protection of settlement systems and financial collateral arrangements.

    [03] Help us make research in Europe more European, say researchers

    Careers and mobility, international co-operation, research infrastructures, joint programming and knowledge sharing are today's main concerns of European research actors, according to a report just published by the European Commission. The report draws on over 1000 responses to a public consultation on the Green Paper "The European Research Area: New Perspectives" published in April 2007. The responses show strong overall support to further consolidate the European Research Area through new and more ambitious actions at all levels in the EU – regional, national and transnational.

    Le vice-président Jacques Barrot, membre de la Commission chargé du portefeuille «Justice, liberté et sécurité», entame, ce 24 avril 2008, sa visite officielle de deux jours St-Pétersbourg afin d’assister la réunion du Conseil permanent de partenariat (CPP) UE- Russie dans le domaine de la justice et des affaires intérieures.

    [05] The European Qualifications Framework: a new tool to translate qualifications

    The European Commission welcomes the formal adoption by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) on 23 April 2008. The way is clear now for Member States to adopt this voluntary scheme that will promote lifelong learning and mobility by making it easier to understand and compare individuals' qualifications around Europe.
