Cyber-Physical European Roadmap & Strategy

An outcome of the EU funded CYPHERS project. This project aims to to develop a European strategic research and innovation agenda for cyber-physical systems to ensure Europe’s competitiveness in this emerging field. To obtain these research challenges and derive recommendations, five key areas of strategic importance to Europe – transport, energy, well-being, industry, and infrastructures – where chosen to identify strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities for Europe, based on the current state and future technologies as well as market potentials of cyber-physical systems.

TTIP: Opportunities and Challenges Technical Barriers to Trade, including Standards

The study explores the possibilities for reducing the costs of technical barriers to trade (TBTs) between the US and the EU, found in standardisation, technical regulations and/or conformity assessment procedures and acceptance of their results. This is important for many industrial sectors but also horizontally as TBTs generally. The EU proposal is ambitious, but without a US text, feasibility is hard to assess, given that the two systems differ considerably. A preliminary attempt to construct the US demands and some partial solutions for TTIP are discussed. The ‘living agreement’ is critical for an effective TBT chapter and needs to be given time, as long as it is driven by an agreed ambitious objective of reducing TBTs as much as possible.

EU eGovernment Report 2015

The 12th eGovernment Benchmark report is the third edition of the measurement made according to the new eGovernment Benchmark Framework 2012-2015. This framework provides for the use of mystery shoppers, i.e. researchers that assess government websites and services by simulating citizen's journeys through them. The report is elaborated by Cap Gemini for the European Commission, both the insight report and the background report deserve a read
