EUROCOORD european project funded by the Justice Programme and led by the University of Burgos

EUROCOORD: Best Practices for EUROpean COORDination on investigative measures and evidence gathering

Funded by the Justice Programme- European Union – Ref 723198 

EUROCOORD addresses existing gaps in the current EU legislation, where there is a lack of homogeneous procedures on evidence gathering and coordination protocols across the Member States and different local and/or national procedures and regulations, with relevant discordances. The general aim of this proposal is, first, to promote the mutual cooperation in criminal matters, with regard to EIO procedures and best practice, contributing to the effective and coherent application of mutual recognition instrument in all EU; second, to raise the awareness and cooperation between prosecutors of different Member States; and third, to create a common standard of observance and respect for procedural rights of persons suffering investigative measures at the European Union level.

BOTSTEM Erasmus+ School Education

BOTSTEM: roBOTics and STEM education for children and primary schools

Funded under ERASMUS+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships for School Education

BOTSTEM will implement inquiry teaching units with a robot-based approach, including code-learning, for enhancing the education in STEM fields. Recent research have demonstrated that early techno-scientific literacy in children as young as 4 years old could improve their long-term achievement in STEM fields and raise the scientific and technological vocations, specially for girls. Competencies acquired during childhood, including design thinking, inquiry, coding and robotics, are transferable to other areas. These skills are applicable to all areas during their whole academic and labour life.

APPCARE – Appropriate care paths for frail elderly patients. A comprehensive model

Funded under the European Union’s Health Programme (2014-2020). Contract 664689

The APPCARE project – which involves three countries: Italy, Spain and The Netherlands – seeks to analyse the ways to reduce hospital admissions, in particular the recurring ones. This can be done through a process of selection of the patients the very moment they enter the emergency room and through adequate local interventions, which could allow to face many health problems without hospitalizing, that always represents a stressful and risky situation for the elderly. One of the innovative aspects of the project is the analysis of the efficacy of the insertion of a Brief Intensive Observation in the services network, working as a filter for the hospital admission and as a link with the territory.

The APPCARE project is inspired by some fundamental principles:

  1. the importance of the “defragmentating care” of the treatments offered, so that the experts that operate in the different segments of the network could provide coordinated interventions;
  2. the need to adopt the multidimensional geriatric evaluation as a precondition of intervention: an important instrument to reveal the need, avoiding inadequacies due to the lacking knowledge in the realms of the intervention (from the biologic-clinic to the psychosocial ones);
  3. the need to create paths based on homogeneous data; therefore, the instruments of analysis should be similar in the different places where the elder patient resides and where treatments are offered;
  4. the attention both to the single frail person and the caregiver, whose role for the achievement of the health equilibrium is getting more and more essential, since the changing in the epidemiology and in the family structure;
  5. the need for an adequate training of who operates at different levels, in order to define and share methods of work and to decide the outcome to reach both at the level of the single segment and in general;
  6. the parameters of economic compatibility have always to be at the center of any intervention; in fact, an integrated therapy leads to saving money. However, the interventions should be analysed extensively in order to avoid the lowering of the qualitative level.
