Playing Fair with Industry

aaup newsWith increased competition for relatively flat research budgets, academics are more often turning to industry for support. But many are concerned that these relationships are pushing academic research towards commercialization, adding a mercenary element to research that should, in principle, be driven by scientific curiosity.

An Extract of the IntroductionBy Henry Chesbrough and Alberto Di Minin
To explain the Italian case to a foreign observer, a scholar of innovation couldn't help but begin from a fundamental, and startling, observation: our country invests only roughly one percent of its gross domestic product in Research and Development(R&D), or rather only half of the average of OECD countries. The public component of this expense is slightly less than that of other nations and this pronounced difference between Italy and more advanced countries can be attributable to differences in private investment.

Law: The European Union (EU) Facing the Global Arena: Standard Setting Bodies and Financial Regulation

bertezzoloby Giulia Bertezzolo

Ph.D at the University of Trento School of Law and Emile Noël Fellow at the New York University School of Law

Abstract

The article considers how the European Community deals with global standard setters operating within the financial sector. The starting point is the consideration of the growing importance of those bodies and their transformed role. Previously places devoted to the exchange of ideas, they have evolved into transnational regulatory bodies. These organizations issue their own standards, which officially have no binding force. Nevertheless, global “rules” spread out both quickly and internationally. As shown by some recent EC directives, despite the European Community’s weak representation within the standard setters, EC law seems to be strongly influenced by global standards. In order to understand through which process global standards get into the EC system and with what effects, the article highlights the relationships existing between the EC and the global regulatory systems. In particular, the research considers the participation of EU institutions in the decision-making process of global bodies, as well as the formal and informal links established by EC and global actors dealing with financial regulation. The essay concludes that by setting up a system similar to the global one, the European Union has provided the conditions for EC interests to be asserted at global level. This goal is mainly reached through the creation of permanent bodies made up of Member states’ national authorities.

ISSNAF Annual Event 2018
ISSNAF Annual Event

"Longevity: the Impact of Research, Economics, AI and Robotics to Live longer, better Lives" was the theme of the 2018 ISSNAF Annual Event, held in the Italian Embassy in Washington, DC, on October 22nd and 23rd, under the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella. In 2025, it is predicted that 1.2 billion people will be at least 60 years of age. This change has been tackled in two ways: the first panel focused on the impact of longevity on the economy and society, while the second looked at how technology (robotics, artificial intelligence, augmented reality) will contribute to providing us with healthier, longer and better lives.
