The aim of the project – of which Doctors with Africa CUAMM is the lead organization – was to make European public opinion aware of the close link between health and development and to make the medical and health community – doctors, health providers, lecturers, trainers, and medical students – responsible for taking action. To goal was to promote discussion and dissemination of the Global Health paradigm, understood as a “panoramic” approach to health, to be able to theoretically transpose into practice social determinants of health, values of justice and equity identified in the Declaration of Alma Ata, and an analysis of the growing interdependence between populations and countries determined by processes of globalization and its impact on health and health inequalities both in and among countries. As Associate Partner CELAB participated in Partnership Meetings organized in the framework of the project.

The European EUCelLEX Project consists in a full examination of the application of the European rules regarding cell banks together with current practices in respect of the therapeutic use of human cells in the different countries concerned. The purpose is to submit the data obtained to the European Commission for it to draw up legislative measures in line with medical advances in this field. The co-ordinator of this project is the Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Medicale (INSERM). Within the EuCeLLex Project CELAB team works within World Package 2. This WP’s main research questions are: 1: What are the interactions between EU legislation and the procurement of human (embryonic, fetal & adult) stem cells for research and innovation? and 2.: What are the effects of the application and implementation of EU legislation on the procurement of human (embryonic, fetal & adult) stem cell research and/or innovation. We will answer those questions using scientific, legal analysis, based on facts and figures and with the end in mind: to inform the evidence base that will help the European Commission optimize the innovative potential, the efficacy and the ethicalness of future EU legislation in this area of research and innovation.

This project aims to contribute to the new field of Responsible Research and Innovation in Neuro-enhancement (NE) in the European Research Area and to the shaping of a normative framework underpinning the governance of NE technologies. These will be achieved through mobilization and mutual learning (MML) activities engaging scientists, policy-makers, industry, civil society groups, patients and the wider public. To structure this complex socio-technical domain this project will propose an analytic classification of NE technologies into currently available methods, experimental and hypothetical technologies. Each of the types raises some fundamental ethical, legal, social and economic issues, which have different relevance to various societal groups, point to different methods of stakeholder engagement, and may require different regulatory approaches. Over the course of the project the analytic classification will be developed and extended in the work packages. Mobilization will form the central commitment of the project from the outset to the conclusion. Based on the Analytic Classification it will stimulate and organize a broad societal dialogue employing state-of-the-art engagement methodologies tailored to specific contexts (education, health, work and research) and stakeholders (producers, users and intermediaries). Furthermore the project participants will synthesise the national experiences, map the contours of a normative framework as it emerges from societal engagement and dialogue and elaborate the concept of RRI in Europe. The Consortium comprises experts in the neuro-cognitive sciences, the social sciences, law, philosophy, communication science and the public engagement with science and technology. Many have prior experience of EC projects and of successful collaborations with other members of the consortium.
