3rd – 5th July 2018: International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe, Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Climate change affects countries in Eastern Europe, i.e. the Western Balkans and Southeast Europe in a variety of ways. Apart from severe floods, there are records of decreasing water reserves in the southern part, and of gradual changes in biodiversity and agricultural production. In the South Caucasus area, for instance, climate change models project decline in precipitation by the end of the century,  and suggest that it will continue to become drier this century.

Many Eastern European countries, especially the non-EU ones, are characterized by the fact that national climate  policies on the one hand, and trans-boundary collaboration on the other are rather week, and by  the fact that the engagement of the general public on matters related to climate change is still rather limited. Climate change thus poses a serious threat to the economic stability and development of many Eastern European countries,  and  to the sustainable development of the region.

The above state of affairs illustrates the need for a better understanding of how climate change influences Eastern Europe, and for the identification of processes, methods and tools which may help the countries and the communities in the region to adapt.  There is also a perceived need to showcase successful examples of how to cope with the social, economic and political problems posed by floods/droughts in the region, especially the ways of increasing the resilience of agriculture systems and of communities.

It is against this background that the “International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe” is being organized  by the University of Banja Luka, University of Belgrade, the Research and Transfer Center “Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management” of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany), The International Climate Change Information Program (ICCIP), Fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency of the Republic of Srpska, and Center for Climate Research (CCR Banja Luka). The Conference will be a truly interdisciplinary event, mobilizing scholars, social movements, practitioners and members of governmental agencies,  undertaking research and/or executing projects focusing on climate change in Eastern Europe.

Papers submitted to the event will be peer-reviewed and the accepted ones will be published in the book “Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe: Managing risks and building resilience to climate change”.
This will be a further volume of the award-winning book series “Climate Change Management” published by the Springer, which since its creation in 2008 has become the  world´s leading book series on climate change management. The decision of the editors as to which papers may be selected and undergo peer review for the book is final.

Further details can be seen at:  https://www.haw-hamburg.de/en/ftz-nk/events/easterneurope2018.html

The International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe will be held in  Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina on 3rd-5th July 2018.

Open access week – state of play in Europe and next steps

The International Open Access Week will take place between 23 and 29 October and provides the opportuity to showcase universities’ views on the topic and attract attention to a crucial topic for EUA members.

As Mary Ritter, Professor Emeritus at Imperial College London, reminds us: “Science must be open if we are to have impact on the ‘wicked’ problems that face the world today – such as climate change, energy, food and scarce resources. This means open access to the results of research so that they can be translated into action and impact as quickly as possible”.

The political momentum achieved in the areas of open access and open science in recent years has greatly contributed to European universities and the scientific system coming closer to a scenario of full open access to research publications by 2020. Despite these efforts, much remains to be achieved before full open access can be ubiquitous. Governments, National Rectors’ Conferences and university leaders at national level, together with stakeholders at European level, need to mobilise their institutions and come together in the development of guidelines and activities to support open access.

EUA on Open Access
Last June, EUA released a series of aims and recommendations on open access “Towards Full Open Access in 2020: aims and recommendations for university leaders and National Rectors’ Conferences”, with the purpose of further assisting European universities and National Rectors’ Conferences (NRCs) in the transition towards a more open scholarly communication system.

A common position is proposed to the EUA Council for adoption during their meeting of 27 October, based on the 2016 Roadmap on Open Access to Research Publications which stated that “EUA aims to contribute to a publishing system that is simultaneously fair and transparent for stakeholders, in particular universities, research institutions, libraries, researchers, research funders, learned societies and commercial publishers”.

EUA will present the first results of its 2016/2017 report on Open Access in European Universities during open access week as well. In the meantime, Professor Jean-Pierre Finance, Chair of the Expert Group on Science 2.0/Open Science, summarised the latest developments on the issue and the state of play in Europe.

The International Open Access week is a key moment to reinforce our positions and we encourage all members to support the campaign by using the hashtag #OAweek on social media and promoting their best practices during that week.
