Message from the Chairman

of Euro-CASE

Reinhard HÜTTL
Last year we commemorated the 20th anniversary of Euro-CASE and called for a new phase in independent science- and technology-based policy advice to European Institutions. Our record of new policy activities this year underlines our strong commitment to partnership with the EU. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our past Chairman, Ms Lena Treschow Torell, and, as her successor, I look forward to reinforcing the previous actions and policies of Euro-CASE undertaken under her initiative.
The Euro-CASE Innovation Platform has generated numerous policy papers on important topics such as innovation financing, public procurement and advanced manufacturing. Its members have undertaken comprehensive analysis and recommendations that will be compiled in a summarising policy paper within the first half of 2014...

Euro-CASE platforms

Innovation

The Euro-CASE Innovation Platform took up its work at the beginning of 2012 under the leadership of acatech (DE) and IVA (SE) – Dietmar Harhoff and Björn O. Nilsson as co-chairs. Ultimately, the objective is to help putting in place the necessary conditions for Europe to increase its innovative power.


Energy

Euro-CASE decided to establish a platform on energy in 2013. Almost all of the member academies are working on the topic of energy not least since the future design of the European energy system is of fundamental importance for meeting the proposed EU-climate targets put forward by the European Commission in January 2014 to reduce EU domestic greenhouse gas emissions by 40% below the 1990 level and to increase the share of renewable energy to at least 27% of the EU's energy consumption by 2030. At the same time a well-designed European market for energy is also crucial for guaranteeing safe, sustainable and affordable energy for Europe’s consumers and industries.


Engineering Education

The Platform on Engineering Education came to an end in 2011. The Final Report summarized results of the 23 questionnaires filled in by the member academies.

In May 2013 the Euro-CASE reestablised this Platfrom chaired by Petr Zuna (EACR). Its first meeting took place in Prague on November 2013.

Objectives: 
"Conversion table » of existing titles and graduates.
« Best practice » - a method of the support of interest of young people.
Foster cooperation with industry in all relevant fields
Find ways how to make engineering studies more attractive to female students. 
Find ways how to motivate the state, media and parents.

As of today, 10 Euro-CASE academies are participating in this Platform

Next meeting: Prague, March/April 2014
