    Developing long-term visions through participatory approaches can be very useful to explore different possible scenarios and pathways to reach desirable futures. This brief report describes a participatory process conducted in the Emilia-Romagna region (Italy) to develop a long-term vision for rural areas of 2040. This approach consisted in: (i) interviews and a focus group conducted with a Multi-actor Platform (MAP) composed of experts from science-society-policy sectors, (ii) an on-line questionnaire addressing a larger number of rural stakeholders of the region. Mixing expert-based consultation through the MAP with a more inclusive consultation approach, resulted to be an effective method to build long-term visions in the very heterogeneous rural context of the Emilia-Romagna. However, this study only constitutes a preliminary step into a more elaborated backcasting approach

    In its 2011 White Paper the Commission set the objective of shifting 30% of road freight over 300 km to other modes, such as rail or waterborne transport, by 2030. By 2050 the share is to be increased to 50%. In addition to supporting these decarbonisation objectives, a shift from road to rail offers to ease congestion on roads, lower the pressure on road infrastructures by taking over the heaviest loads and by reducing the risks linked to transporting dangerous goods. Yet, the progress achieved to date in the Member States remains insufficient, as the share of rail freight stagnates at around 18%. To ensure that rail freight takes off, its performance needs to improve drastically in terms of quality and efficiency. The sector and the legislators need to think fresh and bold and to consider holistically what can be done to overcome this stagnation.

    On 15 November 2019, the Robert Schuman Centre hosted the first Annual Innovation Conference relating to the project “Innovation and Intellectual Property in the Digital Age: Global Challenges and European Responses”, which was organized by the Florence School of Regulation – Communications and Media (FSR C&M) at the European University Institute’s (EUI’s) campus in Florence. The conference focused on the challenges that are associated with the full realization of the Internet of Things (IoT), which is often addressed as the next Industrial Revolution, and which affects the way businesses, governments, and citizens interact with the physical and digital worlds. IoT can be described as a globally distributed network (or networks) of physical objects that are capable of sensing or acting on their environment, and that are able to communicate with each other. At present, its adoption is accelerating across different sectors, from which an abundance of smart, connected devices and platforms that are integrated into a wide range of applications are emerging. In this respect, challenges are appearing at the intersections between technology, innovation and intellectual property law. The Conference gathered academics, practitioners, officials from the National Regulatory Authorities, the European Commission, and representatives from the industry, to discuss and exchange views on these controversies.

    The context of global migration has changed dramatically since the beginning of 2020. Both within and between countries there has been a substantial curtailment of movement. As a result of multiple lockdowns, economic activity has severely declined and labor markets have ground to a halt. In mid-2020, the spectre of mass unemployment in industrialized economies loomed on the horizon. For both migrant hosting and origin countries – some are substantially both – this poses a set of complex development challenges. Some speak of a ‘new normal’ emerging, perhaps with less movement, more use of technology and, overall, a reduction in the global transport system that we have become accustomed to using. However, this suggests that there is suppressed demand to move for work elsewhere as well as a change in the nature of labor markets, particularly those that seek to make profits from large wage differentials within and between countries. There is no apparent evidence that this is yet the case; and an eagerness to work abroad, or in cities, remains the norm among the burgeoning youth in many low- and middleincome economies. The wider context of economic shock and changes to social systems, including the widely-reported mass movements of people within – and to some extent between – countries, seem to herald a different global migration order. However, it is worth asking whether this is really going to be the case, as many of the country examples in this short report make plain (note: this report was compiled from information available at an early stage of the pandemic). While the coupling of health risks with migrant movement may establish new levels of control and scrutiny, and to some degree attach new stigmas to migration in some contexts, the economic imperative of labor demand and supply at an international level means challenges will probably be overcome.

    In Fall 2019 we published our Manifesto for the next five years of EU regulation of transport as an input for the incoming European Commission, and the Directorate General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE), in particular. It contained our ideas and recommendations for how to further advance the Single European Transport Area (SETA). It is fair to say that, of all the EU policy areas, transport was probably most dramatically hit by the recent COVID-19 pandemic, both internally and across the Member States. But, at the same time, the past three months have also demonstrated how crucial a well-functioning transport sector is for each country and for the EU as a whole. As a matter of fact, transport is foundational for the very functioning of a country and of Europe, be it in times of crises, or not. Against the backdrop of the pandemic we, at the Transport Area of the Florence School of Regulation, have concluded that our original Manifesto needed updating, not so much in terms of its objectives, but rather in terms of making sure that proposed objectives are not sidelined, rolled back or even abandoned. We remind readers of the EU’s overarching objective - to achieve a decarbonised SETA by making optimal use of both market and funding instruments as well as of digitalisation. Because of the virus, national priorities have come to overshadow common European interests. These fragmented approaches have thrown us back to pre-SETA times, and sometimes even beyond, and greener modes of transport appear to be less of a priority at the present, especially, if judging by the allocation of State aid, for which the main beneficiaries have been the aviation and the automotive sectors. It is our contention that the original agenda towards a digital and decarbonised SETA remains not only valid, but is needed more than ever before.
