SAFE – Safe Food Advocacy Europe was created in 2015 out of a concern for public health related to food issues. One of the most influential factors of the EU’s food legislation is lobbying, indeed the large majority of EU legislation is influenced by lobbyists.

Thus, SAFE was created to ensure that consumer’s health and concerns remain at the core of the EU’s food legislation. SAFE is the only NGO in Brussels focusing only on the protection and representation of EU consumers in the food sector. SAFE monitors the EU’s food legislation process and cooperates with EU legislators and its actors to draft comprehensive food regulations.

L’Istituto Nazionale Arte Cultura Spettacolo (INACS) si costituisce per dar vita ad un ben preciso e delineato progetto di sviluppo, promozione, diffusione e rivalutazione dell’Arte, dello Spettacolo e della Cultura italiana, partendo dalle piccole realtà locali. Dal 2009 – anno della sua fondazione – l’INACS sta lavorando per contribuire alla rinascita della città di Angri (città in cui è ubicata la sede legale) e di tutto il comprensorio dell’Agro Nocerino Sarnese, dal punto di vista artistico e culturale, e di conseguenza anche dal punto di vista commerciale, turistico, scientifico, religioso e sociale. L’Associazione nasce quando nei soci fondatori prende vita la voglia e la necessità di organizzare una serie di manifestazioni che riportino al centro del mondo tutto ciò che è “Angri e Agro Nocerino Sarnese”. Si è dato così inizio ad un programma molto ampio e variegato che, con fatica e sacrificio, è diventato un punto di riferimento per molti operatori culturali, artistici e turistici di tutto il comprensorio. Oggi questo modello – definito “Progetto Angri” – vuole essere “esportato” in tutti i comuni e le province d’Italia, rivalutando storia, origini e personaggi locali. Questo è possibile dando vita ad un network di soggetti che hanno come unico scopo la promozione del nome e la divulgazione dell’immagine del territorio di riferimento, con tutte le sue eccellenze e peculiarità. L’associazione INACS non persegue scopi di lucro ma si basa su autofinanziamenti e contributi pubblici e privati. L’Istituto è patrocinato e supportato di volta in volta nelle proprie iniziative dai più svariati enti: dai Comuni dell’Agro Nocerino Sarnese alla Provincia di Salerno, dalla Regione Campania ai Ministeri come quello della gioventù o il MiBact, dall’Università degli studi di Salento a enti vari quali ENIT, ANAS, EPT, APT, ecc…

Agriculture & Progress, a platform where the agricultural and primary food processing industry join forces for sustainable agricultural production.Integrated and innovative crop production techniques, including the use of plant protection products in Integrated Pest Management, have been used by European farmers for many years and are constantly being improved. These reliable and safe tools allow farmers to meet production standards both in terms of quantity and in terms of quality.Society is however, more and more critical and raises questions on agricultural practices. We have heard those concerns and are putting the platform at the heart of the debate, taking into account the demands and expectations of consumers.As it is clear that progress is needed in the safety linked to the use of plant protection products, we work towards ensuring the use of safe products for farmers, the environment and consumers. In that context, we work to improve practices to move towards a minimum of inputs while trying to continue to improve our sustainability. Farmers like progress and are ready to welcome new innovative techniques. However, it needs to be understood that research, studies, trials, implementation and the overall transfer of knowledge is a process that takes time and cannot be done overnight.The aim of our transversal, European platform is to provide society and decision makers in a pedagogic way with answers and suggestions on the needs and challenges of guaranteeing sustainable agricultural production and the important role of innovation in this context. Agriculture & Progress aims to establish a strong communication with civil society, local networks and the media.Confronted with bans and restrictions on the use of plant protection products and new breeding techniques (NBTs), the farming and primary food processing communities’ capacity to sustain production and to further improve competitiveness and good agricultural practices is jeopardised in the short and medium term. Our goal is to plead for the development of a solid regulatory framework that guarantees an appropriate adaptation, a balance between health, environmental protection, and qualitative agricultural production whilst guaranteeing an adequate level of income for the farming community.

The safety and security of European economies, societies and citizens rely on space-based applications such as communication, navigation and observation. However, due to the growing complexity of the orbital environment, space-based assets are increasingly at risk from collision with other operational spacecraft or debris. At the same time, objects may re-enter and cause damage on the ground. To mitigate these risks, we need to be able to survey and track such objects, and to provide this information to a variety of stakeholders. The Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) Support Framework was established by the European Union in 2014 with the Decision 541/2014/EU of the European Parliament and the Council (SST Decision). This Decision foresaw the creation of an SST Consortium currently composed of seven EU Member States – France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Spain. An SST system is a network of ground-based and space-based sensors capable of surveying and tracking space objects, together with processing capabilities aiming to provide data, information and services on space objects that orbit around the Earth. Since 2016, the SST Consortium and the European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen) have worked together to develop a European SST capability, and formed the SST Cooperation. The Consortium’s Member States have networked their assets to provide, through the SST Service Provision Portal operated by SatCen, a set of SST services to all EU countries, EU institutions, spacecraft owners and operators, and civil protection authorities. The SST services assess the risk of in-orbit collisions and uncontrolled re-entry of space debris into the Earth’s atmosphere, and detect and characterise in-orbit fragmentations. The SST Consortium EU Member States are represented through their national designated entities: France (CNES), Germany (German Space Agency at DLR), Italy (ASI), Poland (POLSA), Portugal (PT MoD), Romania (ROSA) and Spain (CDTI).
