Surveillance is a matter of life & death in Myanmar. What role did European companies & EU funds play in providing the military junta with the spy tech it used to counter mass protest against the coup it staged

About the consequences of being tracked in #Myanmar, one former detainee told us: ‘There were detainees from the student unions, they were taken away with black hoods over their heads and they didn’t come back’
The #Myanmar military capacity to track its compatriots has been enhanced by EU companies & EU subsidies. Firms like swedish #MSAB and Italian SecurCube appear in leaked Myanmar ministerial budget documents we obtained

Latest scoop in the row over participation of associated countries in #HorizonEurope:
Germany and Denmark want all these countries to receive equal treatment, without pre-conditions for access to sensitive technology projects, according to a leaked email.

pro.politico.eu/news/germany-d…
Germany and Denmark want the Commission to scrap all eligibility conditions for participation in space and certain quantum calls, arguing that setting these rules in the Horizon Europe's work program would “prejudice” the negotiation for the association of non-EU countries.
Setting those conditions would also mean not all countries associated to Horizon Europe would enjoy the same level of access — a principle Germany and Denmark believe the EU should hold. “We especially embrace the point … that we should treat all Associated States as equals.”

On @euronews today commenting on major crisis in #EU - #Swiss relations.

Interview by great @Brusselsness

👇 🧵on why this breakdown & what next, in 8 points
1/ This is obviously sovereignty vs economy all over again.
 
Swiss focus on freedom of movement, “benefit tourism”, pressure on wages & “foreign judges”
 
I think🇨🇭have bad case- EU has been accommodating & numbers don’t add up to problems they pretend. But again, it’s politics.
2/ For 🇪🇺, final sign🇨🇭gov not ready for fair single market settlement w/ EU.
 
Benefits more than anyone, gives little in return. Single market adds €2900 to every Swiss/year, costs €14
 
Biggest problem lack uniform application of rules (incl. state aid) for single market LPF

After the negotiators have come to a final deal on the budget of #HorizonEurope, we can look at the programme and its different aspects.

So what’s in for #SocialSciences and #Humanities?
In fact, #SocialSciences & #Humanities are prominently featured in the regulation, which will be the political and legal foundation of #HorizonEU

era.gv.at/object/documen…
Art 4 of #HorizonEU regulation on the general structure states:

"#SocialSciences and #Humanities (#SSH) shall play an important role across all clusters”

There will be Clusters on Health, Society, Security, Digital, Climate/Energy/Mobility & Food/Agri/Env

#GlobalChange is the most pressing challenge to ecosystems & economies. We ask @EU_Commission @vonderleyen to cont investing in #science & fund #EuropeanReferenceGenomeAtlas projects to study the book of life in the #EU. Join us! #ERGA bit.ly/3iRTk4a @EU_FP9 @EBPgenome
#DYK 23% EU species are at extinction risk, e.g. Canary Island Dragon Tree, Montseny brook newt, & Macedonian grayling? We need #ERGA for sustainable pan-EU biodiv conservation! We are 39+ EU institutions & partners e.g., @B10K_project @bat1kgenomes @darwintreelife @Arthropod_i5K
Nerdier details @ the proposed #ERGA? It aligns w/EU Commission's #GreenDeal for #HorizonEurope to restore biodiversity (threatened, endemic + keystone species), resurrect #EcosystemServices, implement sustainable agricultural actions bit.ly/3iH3GUB @GIGA_COS @euronext

While not perfect, a deal of this size remains good news, no doubt about it. The details will have to be reviewed, but the cuts of #HorizonEurope & #health expenditure in times of #COVID19 show the limited foresight and worrying priorities of some leaders.
politico.eu/article/eu-lea…
More worrying than the result, however, is the process. It should not take a 90h marathon for 27 leaders busy w/ a pandemic, months into a crisis, to agree on a watered-down version of a #RecoveryFund w/ threats and vetoes. This is not an efficient & democratic process. #EUCO
This #EUCO makes ever more imperatives the reforms @VoltEuropa and others have been calling for: create a #fiscalunion and #politicalunion, empower the @Europarl_EN, replace the @EUCouncil w/ an elected senate, allow true #Europeanparties and create a #federalEurope. #IamEuropean

Heureuse de visiter aujourd'hui la plate-forme FAPS de fabrication additive à l'@ENS_ParisSaclay à Cachan. Une initiative de recherche stratégique de l'@UnivParisSaclay pour développer des méthodologies de fabrication dans le domaine des matériaux.
Le simplisme nourrit le populisme. Ce n’est pas parce que le monde est complexe que nous devons renoncer à l’expliquer. C’est l’objet même des réformes engagées depuis plus d’un an pour que la science et la connaissance puissent contribuer pleinement à notre projet de société.
En 2019, les crédits consacrés à la recherche s’établissent à 6,9Md€, soit une progression de 2,5 %. Sur deux ans, le budget de la recherche aura augmenté de 8 %, ce qui montre la volonté du @gouvernementFR d’investir dans le progrès des savoirs et la diffusion de l’#innovation.
