The platform fteval was founded in 1996 with the aim to contribute to more evidence in technology policy. The overall aim is to achieve “a better common understanding between administrators, funders and evaluators." This included the discussion and development of best practices and a discussion of methods, an exchange of experience with other European countries on expert level as well as the discussion on the importance of standards of the European Union for Austria.In order to further support the evaluation culture in Austria and to inform about new developments in the RTI system, which are relevant for evaluation, the platform has developed a broad portfolio of activities and support offers. Within the framework of regular events - such as the country series organised in cooperation with the BMWFW and the WWTF - national and international experts in the area of RTI policy and evaluation are invited for an exchange of ideas. With irregular intervals, international conferences are held on the evaluation of RTI policies, which support an exchange between science and practice. The latest one was the Open Evaluation Conference, for which we were able to win 60 presenters and 250 participants from all five continents. The ‘fteval inside: fteval insight’ event series is a particularity within the portfolio, as member organizations invite each other to present their activities with a self-selected thematic focus and discuss them in an informal framework. This is the Platform’s only internal event format.The Platform’s most long-standing product is the fteval Journal for Research and Technology Policy Evaluation, which arose from the earlier so-called "Newsletter". The journal contains both practical and academic contributions to the topic of RTI policy evaluation and contributes to supporting and safeguarding this discourse across the various stakeholder groups. In more than 40 editions of the journal more than 200 articles were published, predominantly in English. Thematic special editions as well as open editions provide a broad thematic framework.The fteval standards of evaluation in research and technology policy form an important building block for the further development of the evaluation culture. These serve to provide a reference framework for the evaluators, the commissioning bodies and those who are evaluated. The standards aim also to achieve a higher degree of commitment and security for all stakeholders. The standards were developed by the member organisations in a joint process, which started with the institutionalisation of fteval in 2002. The current version of the standards is from 2012. They have been revised in a collaborative process.A further central activity of the platform is the collection and publication of the Austrian evaluation reports in a specially designed repository. The availability of some 300 evaluation reports, studies and strategic documents on the website of the platform contributes to the transparency and visibility of the activities in this policy area. In addition, the platform regularly organises trainings, is available for specific consultation and participates in national and international exchange of knowledge through participation in relevant events of other organisations.

The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) bans nuclear explosions by everyone, everywhere: on the Earth's surface, in the atmosphere, underwater and underground.It makes it very difficult for countries to develop nuclear bombs for the first time, or for countries that already have them, to make more powerful bombs. It also prevents the huge damage caused by radioactivity from nuclear explosions to humans, animals and plants.Over 2000 nuclear tests were carried out between 1945 and 1996, when the CTBT opened for signature: by the United States (1000+), the Soviet Union (700+), France (200+), the United Kingdom and China (45 each). Three countries have broken the de facto moratorium and tested nuclear weapons since 1996: India and Pakistan in 1998, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in 2006, 2009, 2013 and 2016.Many attempts were made during the Cold War to negotiate a comprehensive test ban, but it was only in the 1990s that the Treaty became a reality. The CTBT was negotiated in Geneva between 1994 and 1996. One hundred and eighty three countries have signed the Treaty, of which 164 have also ratified it, including three of the nuclear weapon States: France, the Russian Federation and the United Kingdom. But 44 specific nuclear technology holder countries must sign and ratify before the CTBT can enter into force. Of these, eight are still missing: China, Egypt, India, Iran, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan and the USA. India, North Korea and Pakistan have yet to sign the CTBT. The last Annex 2 State to ratify the Treaty was Indonesia on 6 February 2012.

The Austrian Institute for Law and Policy acts according to the following principle:Science for the humane society, for the knowledge about our law and for a prudent and responsible legislation.Legal Policy deals always with the question how a future law should be conditioned. Even when science cannot take away the decision from politics, it can support politics in making the right and just propositions (decisions). By this however legal policy should not be exhausted in its endeavours, but should tackle the principle dimension of ethics of law.The Austrian Institute for Law and Policy in Salzburg is hitherto the sole such Institute in Austria. Such an Institute for Legal Policy deserves the special commitment of politics. The problem concerning a degrading acceptance in the law, the decreasing knowledge about the law and the lacking involvement of the citizens, infringes the capacity of parliamentary democracy.Strategies that improve the relationship between decision makers (in legislation) and the citizens have to be developed. Therefore, legal policy and legal information policy as they are performed by the Austrian Institute for Law and Policy are tools to improve the current situation.

The European IPTLD Association represents the 80 years & 3 generations of Medical Doctors all named Donato Perez Garcia who have worked to bring forth an exceptional treatment for cancer & other degenerative diseases.Insulin Potentiation Therapy + targeted Low Dose IPTLD or IPT, is a true Stage IV cancer treatment alternative. It uses a combination of two orthodox drugs - insulin (actually insulin is also found in nature) and a chemotherapy drug. Cancer cells have highly active insulin receptors.With IPTLD the insulin works on the cell membranes and allows chemotherapy to target cancer cells. Thus, it is the chemotherapy that kills the cancer cells, however, because of the insulin, the amount of chemotherapy needed is greatly reduced, meaning the side-effects of the chemotherapy are greatly reduced. Thus, the chemotherapy is much more potent (thus the word: potentiation), much less chemotherapy is needed, and far less side-effects are experienced.

Retailers and wholesalers express serious concerns over the draft Late Payment Regulation introduced by the Commission in September 2023. The impact on businesses and especially SMEs in Europe will be disproportionate and dramatic if the proposal is not seriously reconsidered. The draft Regulation goes beyond its intent to address late payments (breach of contract) and is in fact an absolute restriction of freedom to negotiate payment terms beyond 30 days. No EU country has rules that are as drastic. Countries with stricter requirements, such as the Netherlands, have some form of derogation or flexibility in place. EuroCommerce is the principal European organisation representing the retail and wholesale sector. It embraces national associations in 27 countries and 5 million companies, including leading global players and many small businesses. Over a billion times a day, retailers and wholesalers distribute goods and provide an essential service to millions of business and individual customers. The sector generates 1 in 7 jobs, offering a varied career to 26 million Europeans, many of them young people. It also supports millions of further jobs throughout the supply chain, from small local suppliers to international businesses. EuroCommerce is the recognised European social partner for the retail and wholesale sector.

Europe Day – Team Europe celebration in Vienna
10 May 2024
EU DELEGATION VIENNA
Together with the Liaison Office of the European Parliament in Austria, the Representation of the European Commission in Austria, the European Investment Bank Group in Austria, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, the Energy Community Secretariat and the EU Member States, we celebrated Europe Day 2024 as Team Europe. Each year, on the 9th May, the European Union celebrates peace, solidarity, diversity and unity in Europe. This date marks the anniversary of the historic 'Schuman declaration' in which Robert Schuman set out the beautiful project, the beautiful dream, of the European Union. With wars raging around us, from Ukraine to Gaza, the message that former enemies can make peace and build a better future is more relevant than ever. In his opening remarks, EU Ambassador Carl Hallergård highlighted that the European Union is itself evidence that conflicts and challenges can be overcome if we stand and work together in support of international law, multilateralism, human rights and justice. In exactly one month, on 9th June, some 400 million EU citizens go to elect a new European Parliament and renew the democratic mandate of our European institutions and our European leaders. First Vice President of the European Parliament, Mr Othmar Karas, reminded us in his intervention, in name of Team Europe, on the importance of the elections and of the democratic process. Federal Minister for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology, Ms Leonore Gewessler highlighted the importance of the European Union and its strength in unity and diversity. The Europe Day event was concluded with a musical intermezzo, with an unique version of Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, specially created for the EU Delegation in 2020 during the Covid19 pandemic. The music was kindly offered by Embassy and Permanent Representations of the Kingdom of Belgium in honour of the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union

The impacts of economic sanctions on food prices security: Evidence from targeted countries
26 Apr 2024
The Vienna Institute...
Our paper examines the causal impact of economic sanctions on both food prices and food security. Food prices serve as a pivotal gauge of food security, and the enforcement of economic sanctions may compound food security issues in the countries targeted by such measures. The examination of the impact of sanctions on food prices is of paramount importance, especially considering anecdotal evidence suggesting heightened food security concerns in nations subjected to sanctions. To ascertain the existence of a causal link between food prices and sanctions, we employ a two-way fixed-effects approach and leverage the entropy balancing technique, which replicates randomization in observational studies. Our analysis relies on two primary datasets: the recently developed Global Sanctions Database (GSDB) for measuring sanctions and FAOSTAT for evaluating food prices. Our results show that sanctions result in a real term increase in food prices as during the sanctions period, food prices are higher by 0.01-0.014 compared to non-sanctions period. Sanctions contribute to a higher prevalence of undernourishment (PoU) by 1.419-2.083. The project leading to this webinar has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 101031139.

This winter we have been following Stuart Lammont at RSPB's Kinnabus Farm on Islay as part of the Resilience Vlog series.  Prone to wet winters and a high fluke burden, Stuart has been adopting a test and treat approach to liver fluke control at Kinnabus to manage resistance and benefit dung beetles and cough. He's also adapting the outdoor wintering system for cattle and sheep and adopting No Fence collars on cattle to improve grazing management and resilience to wet weather.  In his final Vlog, Stuart Lammont shares how testing for fluke has delayed the first drench for ewes until December and takes us on a tour of how NoFence collars on the cattle have been used for conservation and winter grazing this year.  Related Resources: Vlog 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IOmSVwYJqo&t=11s Vlog 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzNMJx4b94Y&t=3s  Scotland’s Farm Advisory Service (FAS) is funded by the Scottish Government, providing information and resources aimed at increasing the profitability and sustainability of farms and crofts.

There is a growing consensus in the West that Russia should pay for damages and losses it has caused to Ukraine during its unprovoked war of aggression, which have already exceeded USD 400 billion. So far, the burden of funding Ukraine’s self-defence and recovery efforts has fallen on the shoulders of Ukraine and its Western partners. To fund the reconstruction of Ukraine after the war, some have proposed using the assets of the Russian Central Bank confiscated by Ukraine’s allies, which amount to approximately USD 300 billion but have so far been left untouched. At the webinar possible options regarding the confiscation of the Russian state assets will be discussed, using the economic and legal analysis of the Center for Economic Strategy together with the International Center for Ukrainian Victory as a starting point for the discussion.

As we continue to witness the devastating effects of climate change and biodiversity loss, the EU Nature Restoration Law is a historic opportunity to reverse the biodiversity and climate crises by placing the EU’s degraded nature on a path to recovery. But what does nature restoration look like in practice? Join us in the WWF floodplain reserve Marchegg, in the very east of Austria, where the team is working towards rewilding a 1.120-hectare wetland area. We show how the re-introduction of grazing by a herd of semi-wild horses has helped turn around negative biodiversity trends, showing a way to reduce biodiversity loss and restore nature. The restoration of side branches of the Danube river is one of the largest and boldest river restoration projects in Europe. It included a re-opening of large side branches that had been cut off from the Danube during river regulation in the late 19th century. This video was filmed during a press trip to 'Auenreservat Marchegg' and 'Donauauen' national park on 9 June 2023.

Bosnia-Herzegovina became a candidate country, Serbia passed reforms in the field of justice and positioned itself against the war against Ukraine. Kosovo will get the long desired visaliberalization next year. It is hoped that accession negotiations with North Macedonia and Albania can finally begin. The geopolitical situation has also shown the skeptical EU member states that the Western Balkans are indispensable for Europe from both a geopolitical and economic point of view and must not be left to the non-European powers. That is why there is an increasing willingness to find pragmatic solutions. There are many opportunities for companies in the Western Balkans to invest in the Western Balkans, especially in the areas of water, energy, infrastructure and transport. The great interest of local companies in these future markets in the immediate vicinity is manifested in the constantly increasing number of direct investments. The EU is helping to implement the necessary, far-reaching political and economic reforms through a wide variety of funding programs. The European Union supports the Western Balkan countries in building a modern, climate-neutral and resource-efficient economy. In this panel, representatives from the various Western Balkan countries will discuss the opportunities for the Western Balkans to become an important economic region of the future.

Die Frage ist, wie Europa auf diese Herausforderungen reagieren soll. Mit dem European Green Deal hat die europäische Politik ein Programm gestartet, das die gesamte europäische Wirtschaft transformieren soll. Kritikern geht es zu weit, sehen sie doch die europäische Industrie dadurch gefährdet. Für andere kann es nicht weit genug gehen. Unbestritten ist, dass wir für eine zukünftige industrielle Stärke und Bedeutung Europas eine Strategie zur Erneuerung der Industrie für ein nachhaltiges Europa brauchen. Die sogenannte Reindustrialisierung Europas benötigt technologische, unternehmerische, finanzielle, ökologische und soziale Innovation. Fakt ist: Die heimische Industrie ist durch Innovation eine der wichtigsten Säulen unseres Wohlstandes und Technologie ist Teil der Lösung im Kampf gegen die Folgen des Klimawandels. Und eine Abwanderung der Industrie aus Europa in andere Regionen dieser Welt mit niedrigeren Auflagen zum Schutz der Umwelt, kann und darf nicht die Folge sein. Die Frage ist daher: Wie kann die Re-Industrialisierung Europas und damit auch der Erhalt des Wohlstandes mit wirksamen Maßnahmen gegen den Klimawandel in Einklang gebracht werden? Darüber diskutieren hochrangige Expertinnen und Experten aus Politik, Industrie und Wissenschaft. Video: ZUP Media | www.zup-media.at

Reconstruction of Ukraine: When and How? Sunday 24th September 2023 Salzburg Congress, Europa Hall KEYNOTE Karoline Edtstadler Federal Minister for the EU and Constitution, Republic of Austria SPEECH Oleksandra Azarkhina - live connection from Kyiv Vice Minister for Infrastructure, Ukraine PANEL Serhii Bostan City Councilor, Head of Economic Development Department of Chernivtsi, Ukraine Jean-Erik De Zagon Representative of the European Investment Bank EIB in Ukraine Erika Kuročkina Vice-Minister of Economy and Innovation, responsible for projects related to reconstruction of Ukraine, Lithuania Mariin Ratnik Coordinator for Ukraine, Undersecretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Estonia Harald Riener Member of the Board of Vienna Insurance Group (VIG), Austria MODERATION Ivo Mijnssen Correspondent Ukraine, Neue Zürcher Zeitung NZZ, Switzerland The terrible war of aggression against Ukraine is causing unimaginable destruction and damage in this country in all areas and at all levels. It will take a major global effort to rebuild Ukraine whenever the war is over. Reconstruction is taking place in a context of great uncertainty. Many countries in the world, but especially the European Union, are helping to strengthen Ukraine's resilience. Since the beginning of the war, the EU and its member states and the European financial institutions have provided around 53 billion euros in financial, humanitarian, emergency, budget and military assistance. Reconstruction is already taking place in Ukraine. Especially in the areas of rebuilding housing, health care, transport infrastructure, energy supply, etc. to make the destroyed areas habitable again. With the acceptance of Ukraine as a candidate for accession, the European Union has also made reconstruction one of its tasks. The Ukrainian government's priorities for reconstruction are largely in line with the European Union's goal of preparing Ukraine for EU accession and driving the country's green and digital transformation. In all of this, consideration must also be given to the rest of the EU's enlargement process - especially as far as the Western Balkans are concerned - so that there are not two classes of candidate countries. Clear accountability and sanctions in the event of misuse are necessary to counteract the danger in such cases of corruption and patronage networks developing in the context of the massive reconstruction support. Significant reconstruction work must be carried out by the private sector. For this it is necessary to create effective incentives, for example through investment guarantees.

At the same time there is the counter-trend of regionality, which means the richness of a region and includes the regional cultural heritage, tradition, diversity, specialties and idiosyncrasies. At the latest since the corona crisis, the regions have experienced an enormous upswing. But even before that, one could see that the ever-increasing globalization was causing people increasing discomfort, e.g. even scared. The question therefore arises as to whether regionality and globalization exclude or include one another or whether they are mutually dependent. Can't one be without the other? It is by no means just about regional products, more transparency with food, shorter transport routes and the like. This is what is currently being discussed in the foreground. Rather, it is about concrete life plans. The enormous acceleration and high mobility of globalization brings more disorientation and loss of identity for people. Does more regionality make it easier for people to find their way in the complex modern age? One thing seems clear: increasing globalization brings with it increasing regionalization. Of course, globalization with its many positive developments cannot simply be reversed, but side effects of globalization have emerged in the past, which must be questioned in terms of sustainability.

Energie und Rohstoffe: Was steckt hinter den hohen Preisen? Montag, 25. September 2023 Salzburg Congress, Europa Saal PODIUM Gerhard Christiner, Vorstand der Austrian Power Grid APG Barbara Schmidt, Generalsekretärin Österreichs Energie - Österreichs Energiewirtschaft Jürgen Schneider, Sektionschef im Bundesministerium für Klimaschutz, Österreich Arnold Weiss, Head EU Public & Regulatory Affairs EPEX SPOT European Power Exchange SE MODERATION Gundula Geiginger, Puls4 Europa ist mit einer beispiellosen Energiekrise konfrontiert. Die EU-Mitgliedsstaaten versuchen gemeinsam, die Energieversorgung zu sichern und erschwingliche Preise für Verbraucherinnen und Verbraucher zu gewährleisten. Nicht erst seit der Invasion Russlands in die Ukraine ist das Thema von Energie- und Rohstoffversorgung präsent. Die Jahre der Corona-Pandemie haben schon die Verletzlichkeit globaler Lieferketten und damit auch der Rohstoffversorgung aufgezeigt. Der Krieg gegen die Ukraine hat gezeigt, wie riskant einseitige Abhängigkeit bei Energie sein kann. Die Abhängigkeit der EU von der Einfuhr russischer Brennstoffe muss verringert werden, um die Energie-Resilienz und die Autonomie der EU zu stärken. Seit 2021 sind die Energiepreise spürbar gestiegen. Dazu trug u. a. der beispiellose Anstieg der Gaspreise auf den Weltmärkten entscheidend bei. Da Gas immer noch essenziell für die Stromproduktion ist, hat sich dies natürlicherweise auf die Strompreise in Europa ausgewirkt. Schließlich trägt die Inflation ihren Teil zu hohen Energiepreisen bei. Aktuell befinden sich die Energiepreise zwar immer noch auf einem außergewöhnlich hohen Niveau, sind aber generell leicht gesunken und liegen unter der Inflation. Die Strompreise in Europa hängen von einer Reihe von Faktoren ab, wie zum Beispiel der geopolitischen Lage, der Besteuerung, den Netzkosten oder den Umweltschutzkosten. Wie wirken sich Faktoren wie der Krieg, Inflation und Transformation konkret auf die Energie- und Rohstoffpreise aus? Sind Erneuerbare Energien langfristig günstiger, oder geht die Transformation im Rahmen des European Green Deals zu weit? Ist eine komplette Umstellung auf Erneuerbare Energie möglich oder begibt man sich dabei in die nächste Abhängigkeit? Darüber diskutieren in diesem Panel Sprecherinnen und Sprecher aus Praxis und Wissenschaft. Video: ZUP Media | www.zup-media.at

Bargaining for Trade: When Exporting Becomes Detrimental to Female Wages
22 Sep 2023
The Vienna Institute...
The organizers gratefully acknowledge support from EU Horizon MSCA Fellowship program. This presentation is based on a paper from Daniel Halvarsson, Olga Lark, Patrik Tingvall and Josefin Videnord. Abstract: In this paper, we study exports and how the associated need for communication with foreign partners shapes the gender wage gap. Specifically, we examine how the demand for interpersonal skills in trade and gender-specific differences in negotiations are related to the remuneration of men and women. Our key finding is that export of goods that are intensive in interpersonal contacts widens the gender wage gap. The negative wage effect is robust across various specifications and is most pronounced for domestic exporting firms, which mainly deal with external contractors. We ascribe this result to a male comparative advantage in bargaining—a skill that is especially needed and rewarded when serving foreign markets, where intense contracting problems manifest themselves. The views expressed in this paper/presentation are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the OECD and its member countries.

Each year, on the 9th of May, the European Union celebrates peace, solidarity, diversity and unity in Europe. This date marks the anniversary of the historic 'Schuman declaration' that set out his idea for a new form of economic and political integration in Europe, which would make war between Europe's democratic nations unthinkable. Global challenges, such as climate change, the fight against pandemics or the maintenance of international peace and security can only be solved by multilateral cooperation. This is why we will continue to defend the rules-based international order, based on common objectives and international law. Violating the basic principles of this international order, as Russia has just done, cannot be condoned.

Growth and the Fragmentation of Production in India
12 May 2023
The Vienna Institute...
Economist Johannes Boehm, Associate Professor at the Department of Economics at Sciences Po in Paris, on growth and the fragmentation of production in India: How much do changes in the fragmentation of production contribute to growth? Using detailed plant-level data on the manufacturing sector in India between 1990 and 2014, we study a version of Smithian growth, the link between greater fragmentation of supply chains and productivity. We propose a measure of a plant's vertical span, which corresponds roughly to the number of stages in a supply chain that the plant performs in-house; when plants have smaller vertical spans, production is more fragmented. We find that fragmentation increases with development in both the cross-section and time series. Further, within locations at a point in time, larger plants tend to have smaller vertical spans, and those that increase sales tend to decrease vertical span. Using changes in demand during the tariff liberalization in the 1990s, we provide evidence that increased demand causes specialization. We find evidence from economies of scale in specialization. We construct a general equilibrium model to rationalize these findings and estimate the sources and magnitude of scale economies. Goods are produced in a succession of steps, each combining labor and a set of intermediate inputs, giving rise to a tree-like structure. Firms exert effort to find suppliers for inputs and choose the set of production stages (and thereby inputs) to produce the output at lowest cost. The structure implies that the returns to searching are more strongly diminishing for inputs that are further upstream. Firms with high productivity draws are therefore more likely to choose to be more vertically specialized.

EU DELEGATION VIENNA
When real-life drama meets theatre: WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY 2023 in Vienna On 3 May, we once again emphasise the fundamental importance of press freedom. It is a day when we reflect on and evaluate the state of press freedom around the world and stand up to defend the media from attacks on their independence. We also pay tribute to all journalists in Europe and worldwide who have died in the exercise of their profession. We call on all States to condemn violence against journalists, to take action to improve the safety of journalists with particular attention to women journalists, and to bring perpetrators and instigators of such violence to justice. The EU has always been very vocal in defending and protecting freedom of expression and qualitative information. This year marks the 30th anniversary of International World Press Freedom Day. As part of the events the Delegation of the European Union to the International Organisations in Vienna together with the Embassy and Permanent Mission of Malta in Vienna will present a play, which focuses on the murder of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. A panel discussion will follow the play to discuss the state of journalism in 2023, as well as related risks and challenges. Daphne Caruana Galizia: Malta's most controversial journalist of her time Daphne Caruana Galizia was a Maltese journalist and blogger. Caruana Galizia was brutally murdered by a car bomb outside her house in 2017. She was killed months after she started exposing high-level corruption. The real-life tragedy shines a light on the importance of the protection of independent journalism. It also sparked a new debate about press freedom and the safety of journalists in Europe and worldwide. They Blew Her Up – written and directed by Herman Grech The story of Daphne Caruana Galizia already sounds like crime fiction. Herman Grech, writer and editor-in-chief of the news organisation Times of Malta investigated the story and gained access to some of the protagonists behind the scenes. The result is this captivating work where journalism meets theatre to tell a story that sent shockwaves around the world. The production, featuring five of Malta’s finest actors, was already staged in Malta, Belgium, Italy and Cyprus and won the Production of the Year Award at the Arts Council's Premju ghal-Arti in Malta. Panel Discussion A panel discussion will follow the play. Daphne Caruana Galizia’s son, Matthew, will be one of the panellists. Matthew Caruana Galizia is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist and engineer. He worked at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) prior to co-founding the Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation in 2018, where he acts as Director. Other participants in the panel: Nabeelah Shabbir is Senior Research Associate at the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and co-author with Dr Julie Posetti of the 2022 ICFJ-UNESCO report The Chilling - A global study of online violence against women journalists. She is also co-author of the OSCE Guidelines for monitoring online violence against female journalists, currently under development. Thomas Seifert, Deputy editor-in-chief of the Wiener Zeitung, has extensive experience in reporting from crisis regions and has worked for various print media including Die Presse, News, Welt am Sonntag and the Sunday Telegraph. Seifert was honored with Ari Rath Prize for his critical journalism in 2021. The panel will be moderated by Stephanie Liechtenstein who is a freelance journalist based in Vienna. Her articles and research are focused on multilateral diplomacy, foreign and security policy, Austrian politics, and international organizations in Vienna. About World Press Freedom Day Every day across the world, in an era of disinformation and propaganda, journalists face countless threats and risk their lives as they stand up for freedom of expression, to report the truth, even under the most difficult circumstances. According to “Reporters without Borders”, in 2022, 57 journalists were killed, 65 taken hostage, 49 went missing and 533 were detained for doing their job around the world. Freedom of the press, freedom of expression and safety of journalists are indispensable for the upholding democracy and security and are essential drivers for all human rights.

Die Neutralität hatsich danach im ideologisch geteilten Europa durch Jahrzehnte außenpolitisch, wirtschaftlich und hinsichtlich der Identifizierung der österreichischen Bevölkerung mitdem eigenständigen Staat als höchst erfolgreich erwiesen. Neutralitätsrecht und Neutralitätspolitik wurden immer wieder den geänderten Umständen angepasst. Heuteist die staatliche und die nationale Identität unbestritten, aber das europa- und geopolitische Umfeld hat sich seit dem Fall des „Eisernen Vorhanges“ 1989, seit dem Zerfall der Sowjetunion, seit den Kriegen im ehemaligen Jugoslawien und seit dem österreichischen Beitritt zur Europäischen Union sowie den folgenden Erweiterungsrunden der EU und der NATO radikal verändert. Erfüllt heute nach der „Zeitenwende“ des russischen Angriffs auf die Ukraine die Neutralität weiterhin die bewährte Funktion, die beste Garantie für Freiheit, Sicherheit und Wohlstand zu sein?

European Strategic Autonomy & the Green Transition: What Industrial and Technological Strategies?

The Vienna Institute...
The invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation and consequent supply chain disruptions in the energy sector have exposed critical vulnerabilities in the European Union’s broader strategic autonomy agenda and bolstered efforts at lessening strategic dependency on third states in a variety of areas, from raw materials, batteries and active pharmaceutical ingredients to hydrogen, semiconductors, and cloud and edge technologies. The challenge, which the EU needs to address in the new geopolitical context and against the background of Sino-American rivalry is of paramount importance. The EU’s industrial and technological strategy will only allow the EU to achieve digital, green and resilient transformation if the block can secure access to strategic materials, develop autonomous technologies and ensure global competitiveness. What is the scope of the EU’s dependency on third states in those areas? How has the war in Ukraine affected the EU’s position in global supply chains? How can the EU further diversity supplies of critical raw materials? With which countries should it strengthen diplomatic ties? How can it boost technological innovation and ensure global competitiveness, while advancing its green transition agenda? #economics #eu #industrial #policy #russia #ukraine #supplychain #technology #climatechange Opening - Dietmar Schweisgut, Secretary General of the Austro-French Centre for Rapprochement in Europe Discussion - Alice Pannier, Head of the Geopolitics of Technology program at the French Institute of International Relations, Paris - Mario Holzner, Director of the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (wiiw), Vienna - Désirée Rückert, Economist at European Investment Bank, Luxembourg Moderation - Dominique David, President of the Austro-French Centre for Rapprochement in Europe and Advisor to the Executive Chairman of the French Institute of International Relations, Paris

Presentation of our joint study with Bertelsmann Stiftung at the Munich Security Conference 2023: Keeping friends closer: Why the EU should address new geoeconomic realities and get its neighbours back in the fold. Download it here: ➡️ https://wiiw.ac.at/p-6487.html The EU's geo-economic influence in its neighbourhood vis-à-vis China, Russia and the USA The liberal paradigm of “change through trade” is under intense scrutiny. The fallout from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is the latest example of how the economic interdependencies generated by the last few decades of hyper-globalisation can be used as a weapon. But is it true that economic interdependence has had its day as a political tool? In this discussion, we present the findings of a new study quantifying EU, US, Chinese and Russian interconnectivity with the EU neighbourhood. We stress that EU economic and financial influence in the region remains strong, and that economic integration remains an important policy instrument when used strategically. Moreover, we outline how the EU should adapt its enlargement and neighbourhood policies to the new reality, leveraging interconnectivity to better promote democratic and market-based development in this region and prevent autocratic systems from taking root and gaining influence.

Global Value Chains, Functional Specialisation and Labour Markets The emergence of global value chains has radically changed the organisation of production in the EU economy. In particular, the increasingly fine-grained international division of labour has made it possible for countries to specialise in individual business functions of the value chain. In a project sponsored by the Hans-Böckler-Stiftung, the Vienna Institute for International Economics Studies (wiiw) and the Gdańsk University of Technology investigate the positions of EU member states along this functional dimension, and shed light on the determinants and implications associated with such positioning. About wiiw: The Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (wiiw) is Vienna-based policy think tank with a focus on Central, East, and Southeast Europe.

Recording of an online seminar in International Economics from 10th November, 2022, organised by wiiw, as part of the series 'FIW-wiiw seminars in international economics'. This presentation is based on a paper co-authored with Cecilia Fieler, Daniel Xu, and Kelly Yang. We study a production network where quality choices are interconnected across firms. High-quality firms are skill intensive and trade more with other high-quality firms. Using data from Turkish firms, we document strong assortative matching of skills in the production network. A firm-specific export demand shock from a rich country increases the firm’s skill intensity and shifts the firm toward skill- intensive domestic partners. We develop a quantitative model with heterogeneous firms, endogenous quality choices, and network formation. An economy-wide export demand shock of 5 percent induces exporters and non-exporters to upgrade quality, raising the average wage by 1.2 percent. This effect is about nine times the effect in a special case of the model with no interconnection of quality choices. About wiiw: The Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (wiiw) is Vienna-based policy think tank with a focus on Central, East, and Southeast Europe. We conduct research on international economics, deliver macroeconomic forecasts, comment the ongoing events, collect statistical data, and organize events to discuss policy-related questions.
