*Strasbourg/Palace of Music and Congresses/Angelo Marcopolo/- A new DRONE will be soon right in front of EU Parliament's Building in Strasbourg, just before its forthcoming Plenary Session of September 2016.  But it will Not be, at all, a Hostile, Spying or Attacking "Drone", as that which is nowadays pictured and Headlined in World Famous Alternative Rock Music Group "The Muse"'s latest Long Play Album and Global Concerts Tour...


On the Contrary, 2016 European Innovation Award "Lepine" Competition's  "Helper-Drone", will be of anOther, absolutely Differend Kind : An "Humanitarian" or "Rescue", Peaceful Drone, recently Invented by someone who had Worked an Off-Shore Energy Platform, destinated to Help People at Risk to be Drown at the Sea in a particularly Adverse Environment, (f.ex. an Oil/Gas Polluted Water surface, lacking Oxygen, and/or a Conflict-stricken area, etc), as the Experienced President of that prestigious, 115 Years-Old Award Committee, Gerard Dorey, pointed out to "Eurofora".


Dorey was speaking after the Annual Press Conference for the 2016 version of Strasbourg's "Euro-Fair", a Mega-Event, located in Front of EU Parliament, which is due to be Inaugurated this Year by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, and Hosts as Guest of Honour, this time, Tunisia, the 2015 NOBEL Peace Prize Award Winner, (Comp. Statements of Tunisian Consul Trabelsi, also to "Eurofora", at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/tunisiaconsuloneufaireconomyandconstitution.html), which was just presented, Earlier Today, at the Extended and Fully ReNovated Strasbourg's Brand New "Exhibition and Convention Centre", in the "Palace of Music and Congresses - alias Building "Pierre Pflimlin", named after the Historic 1st President of EU Parliament, but also of CoE's Assembly, and Long-Time Mayor of the City, (Comp. also; Strasbourg Europe/World Relations' Head, Rafik-Elmrini's relevant Statements to "Eurofora", at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/strasbourgofficialonbusinesscenterfacingeuparliament.html).

That brand New "Helper-Drone" Innovation, (in fact, an Acronym for a "Human Environment & Life Protection Emergency Response"), is an almost fully Automatic,  Unmanned Flying Vehicle (UFV), able to Bring an Inflating Buoy, a Medical "Oxygen" Bottle, and Modern Communication Technologies, to the Service of an Urgent Rescue Operation in order to Save a Victim fallen at the Sea, after an Accident, during a Natural or Man-made Catastroph, or Conflict, by using also State of the Art Video-Transmissions, a Computer Software, etc., which can Fly at a Speed of 80 km/h, during up to 40 mn, Back and Forward, establishing a Link between the Victim and a Rescue Team, which can, meanwhile, Find some precious Time to Deal also with some Other Aspects of the Urgency, so that the Overall Operation may have much More Chances to be Succesful at the End.

In case of any Problem, (despite its "Speed" and Capability to reportedly Resist even at a 50km/h Wind), a "Parachute" could Help Save a precious "Video"-Tape, with much needed Information on the precise Location and Condition of the Victim, which may be subsequently Collected on the Ground by Nearby Rescue Agents, (among also various Other useful Features, that the Inventors say to Keep Secret, at least for the Time Being, until it "will be Fully Patented", as they say in their own Documentation)...                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
All this has been Invented and Developed by a Team of 4, including a Pilot and UAV-Trainer, an Emergency Doctor (working both in Cities and Oil-Rings), and two System Programmers for Design and Electronics, who Joined Together in a Project, (that they Claim to be much more Simple, Economic, and mainly Faster than a fully Manned, Life-Guard Patrol Boat : See relevant Comparative Video-Test), which is currently in the process to become more and more Known accross the World.

From the prestigious Crystal Products' Artist, "Lallique", (for whom a Modern-style Museum has been established, some Years ago, at a Splendid Natural Landscape on nearby Lorrraine area's Mountains, close to Strasbourg, whose Press-Club had invited "Eurofora" and other Journalists to Visit, on the occasion of a Franco-American Artist's Exhibition : Lallique's own Daughter), up to "Citroen" High-Tech Car Manufactor himself, and related even to the 1st "solo" Trans-Atlantic Ocean Airplane Flight by Charles Lindbergh, etc., Beginning as Early as already "since 1915", as President Dorey reminded now to "Eurofora", the "Innovation Award "Lepine" Competition, (named after a former Paris' Police Prefect), celebrates this year its 115th Anniversary.

+ A French "Wine-Grower's Robot", added to 2 Chinese "Under-Sea" and "Nurse" Robots, are Now Added among the 2016 European Innovation "Lepine" Award landmarks, covering a Wide-spread, various Practical Uses' Horizon, going from Implanting and/or Collecting Grape Fruit Trees, as a Mecanized, quasi-Automatic Help to Agricultural Work, up to Keeping the Natural Environment Clean, or providing Urgent Health Care, etc...

3, different, Electric Bicycles, are also on Display : The "StromerBike", with "a Digital Connection", GSM, GPS, etc., reportedly "Communicates with a Mobile Phone, and Receives Instructions", is Equiped with a 500 W - Strong Motor, and a     Li-Ion Batery of 48 V, offering 814 WH of Energy, and has an Autonomy of 159 km. The "Beakor", another "Connected" object, is Equiped with HD Cameras' Lights, offering a Road Security similar to that on Cars and/or Motorcycles, thanks also to Powerful Light beakons, located at the Front-End and on the Rear of the Bicycle, which allow Cyclists to See clearly, but also to Be Seen, while Cameras on Both Sides Upload and Send Pictures or Videos, which can also Serve as "Black Boxes". In addition, the relevant Software includes even an Alert system, in case of Accident, while LED Beams are projected on the Ground. "Stigo", a Smaller e-Bike, can be Folded at 2-3 Pieces (in a 40 X 48 cm Format on the Ground), as a Rolling Suitcase, which can be Transported Everywhere (f.ex. even in High-Speed Trains, Airplanes, etc), and receives Power from a Normal Electric Plug, while it also Speeds up to 25 Km/h, Weighting Only 13,9 kg, but Able of Autonomy for 30 km. An autonomous PhotoVoltaic Fill-up Unit, with a Fast and Easy Plug-In, exists also, for auto-Consumption, which Can Serve also in order to Park your Bike...         


"Smart- Scooter" is Equiped with a Battery connected to a Mobile Phone, allowing for the Driver to know precisely the remaining Autonomy in Electric Power at any moment, even during Driving, in a Real-Time Connection to the State of Play of the Scooter, while also enabling Remote Monitoring, (f.ex. in order to Open the Seat, for Starting up, etc). Other Motorcycles are Equiped with an USB Plug in, SmartPhone support, etc., (f.ex. "SpeedFight"), and/or with a real LCD Screen Computer Informing the Pilot on the Tires, the Consumption, Remaining Autonomy, External Temperature, etc., while also Starting up by Remote Control at a 1,5 m. range of Distance ("Metropolis"). A lot of various New Electric Cars (from the fully-fledged, luxuous Hybrid "Lexus" Family, with a characteristic Design, to a lot of Smart 100% Electric Cars usable even "without Driving Licence", "from 14 Years Old" of Age, as more en more often in Recent Years, complete the List of Innovations in Modern Transports.


But the "Connected Universe" (alias "Wirred") List of this, 2016 European "Lepine" Innovation Award is also Much Longer and Diverse : Various other Software (f.ex. a New "Music-Teacher", or Health-related Diabete Alerts Watchdog Application, working via SMS, Emails and/or Geo-Localisation, "President of the Republic Award" Winner, earlier in Paris, etc), Website (f.ex. a Search Engines' Aggregator and Comparing Site "WhoWorld"), Mobile Phones, (f.ex. "GoyaPhone" for Trade Agents, "MobeeFox" to InterConnect almost Every Digital thing to the Web, etc), or a Topical, Wireless "Alert" Button, able to Call for Security Help in case of Violence, with a Discreet and Simple, Handy Minuature Ring equiped with a Button, which Sends SMS and uses Radio Identification by Ultra High Frequences (RFID UHD), for a Tiny Price, etc, extend this Year's "Digital" Universe much Further.


Are added also several "Nature and Art of Life" Innovations, (from various New Games, to Baby-Carriers and smart Security Bags, smart Tables, Sanitary or Painter's Tools, even ...Eating Artefacts, as, f.ex., that Multi-Facet Fork+Spoon+Knife+etc. in One Piece, ideal for OutDoor Excursions and/or Camping, including that Tiny, very Compact, just O,5 m. Space Based, but fully Equiped Kitchen, with Oven, Placards, Frig, Table, Water Tap and Sink, etc., Useful f.ex. in Hotels, etc), together with "Health and New Technologies", (as, f.ex. that Water Purifier using a Natural Stones' Filter, with Pebles, etc), as well as more "Transports and Industry" ideas (Comp. partly Supra), etc.

This 2016 "Lepine" Competition's List concludes with a Long Series of several Chinese Innovative products, with No Less than ... 31(Thirty One !) various more Items now, whose Classification would greatly go Far Beyond the capabilities even of that Famous Ancient "Chinese Classification System", that a Celebrity French Philosopher had notoriously Described as one of the Biggest "Paradoxes" of Thought in World's History, at one of his most Popular Books during the unforgetable Sixties...    

 
-------------------------------------------

Meanwhile, President Dorey also Welcomed Tunisia, (a Digital-environment related Country, the World-Famous "Cradle of Arab Spring", and NOBEL Peace Prize Winned in 2015 : See, f.ex. : ....), as the 2016 Guest of Honour in Strasbourg's "EuroFair", where, as he said Afterwards to "Eurofora", he had Personaly Lived for almost a Decade in the Past, when he Worked in a Big Company active in an Environment Protection-relared area...


However, such Tunisia-related, Developments, appeared so Interesting and deserving at least an elementary European Solidarity, that "Eurofora" was practicaly Obliged even to Risk Missing a Unique Chance to participate at a very Topical "Press Point" with the Young French Minister of Economy, Industry and Digital Society, Emmanuel Macron, where we had been Invited, because it had been scheduled, Curiously, at the Same Day and even precise Hour (sic !), as the Annual "EuroFair"'s big Press Conference, but ...at the Other Side of Strasbourg City, far Away from the Palace of Congress !


    Even if it was held, astonishingly, very Near to "Eurofora" co-Founder's Family Home, and was Macron's Last Public Meeting just a few Minutes before he Started to Spark Top Headline News all over Europe and the World, (even at Moscow or New York !), with his (partly Expected) Intention to Resign from the present Government in order to Start Focusing exclusively on the forthcoming, Crucial French Presidential Elections of Spring 2017, where he notoriously intends to be a Candidate, (Comp. 2 "Eurofora" earlier Publications, including with Statements that Macron gave us on various other Topical Issues, f.ex. at : .... + ...) ...


    => Perhaps, IF we had a Chance to get hold of that ... "Helper-Drone" on Time, may be we could have Send it, Urgently, in a Speedy Mission to Film by Video Macron's Press Point at the Same Time, on the Other Side of Strasbourg...


    But, could it also provide a Technical Possibility to ...Raise a Topical Question, by Video-Conference and Mobile SmartPhones interposed, (almost as even controversial Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan had been Spectacularly Obliged to do recently, when he Spoke to a TV Media through an "I-Phone" and a Video-Conference Web Appl., during a Strange, too Short, alleged "Coup" Attempt) at the above-mentioned Macron's Press-Point (Comp. Supra), where "Eurofora" had been Invited, but practicaly Hindered to be Physically Present, (See Above)...


    Wouldn't it ?  


    Question to raise to "Helper-Drone" Inventors, who are due to be Present in Strasbourg during that "Euro-Fair", (may be, at least during the Sunday, 11 September 2016, Prize Awards, at the Eve of EU Parliament's forthcoming full Plenary Session)...

New Plan revealed during EU Parliament's session and while Strasbourg's Unified University was inaugurated, (biggest in France, aiming at EU links).

 
EuroDistrict Strasbourg-Ortenau's dynamics were boosted by a key Franco-German meeting during EU Parliament's session here, which anounced a swift towards ambitious European aims : To become a showcase for concrete achievements of European Cooperation that benefit Citizens' everyday life and Economy, while also developing a Culture able to serve and stimulate European Organizations' political activities.

With measures to be taken in 2009, Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict should become EU's new "Metropolitan area" in the Decade 2010-2020, at the heart of Europe in the performant "OberRhein" region, a Franco-German Expert's Report anounced.

- "Defend European Institutions, and in particular EU Parliament" is a key point of the 2009 Report's threefold focus on "Infrastructures"' economy and quality, "Citizens' everyday life", and "Cultural and Political influence".

According to a Draft Statute, France and Germany agree that "an undeniable element of EuroDistrict's image" should be "Strasbourg's status, as Capital of a Democratic and Parliamentarian Europe".

    After parallel and joint meetings at EU Parliament, French and German Ministers for EU affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE and Gunter GLOSER, started working with representatives of Local and Regional Authorities from both sides at Strasbourg's Historic Town Hall, Place Broglie, for the 2009 Monitoring of EuroDistrict "Strasbourg-Ortenau, during which was published an important Experts' Strategic Study with proposals on how to develop it in the Decade 2010-2020.
eurodistrict_speeches_400

    Introducing the 1st Experts' Report on "EuroDistrict" at a moment when it needs "New Ideas" as food for thought, Strasbourg's Mayor, Senator Roland RIES said that "a special Status" should allow "Citizens to share Infrastructures and a common European project", in agreement with his collegue, Mayor of Kehl and German spokesperson for EuroDisctrict, Dr. Gunther PETRY, who focused mainly on the useful role of "Local" authorities in "concrete" achievements.

    - Together with "facilitating Citizens' everyday life", "our countries have also a Political aim", which needs to find "New Forms of Cooperation", said German Minister for EU affairs, Gunter GLOSER. According to a "Subsidiarity principle", which starts from a smaller level, leaving to a bigger entity what it cannot achieve alone, EuroDistict should be the "1st level" in a "Concentric" schema, he added.

    - In fact, "it's a question of Europe's credibility : EuroDistrict must prove that Franco-German cooperation gives results", with "concrete achievements", said the new French Minister for EU affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE. Now, we "must advance further" : There is both "Local and National support" to make of Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict "an example on what Europe must do in the Future if it wants to be credible in Citizens' eyes".

    - "Our Mission was to find the region's Potential of the region, "and search adequate Measures to use and develop it"; said German Expert Dr. Erwin VETTER. A main proposal is to "create a New Center for EU Competences", where everything should be concentrated : EuroDistrict, EuroCorps, EuroBest, etc : All in one area, while also linking Airports and other means of Transport, Culture, Education, Science and Research, etc. in order "to create 1 Metropolitan area" before 2020, he anounced.

    - With imagination and organisation "we tried to marry the French and German spirit", added French Expert Bernard COTTIN. He underlined "two points" :  - "In their Everyday Life, Citizens should feel that they are living in One Common Area", (fex. on Phones, Hospitals, Retirement, etc). But EuroDistrict should have also a "Cultural Dimension" : "Strasbourg, had been a little-bit left behind by both countries in the past, but must now find a New dynamic Momentum, at the Heart of Europe, strengthening its Cultural atous and becoming Multi-Cultural, in order to attain a European Dimension and develop the European Institutions", he concluded.

    Symbolically, both Mayors of Strasbourg and Kehl, Ries and Petry, gave to Ministers Gloser and Le Maire as a Gift two Books on Rhine River : Stylicised by both Logos chosen for "EuroDistrict" (as body of a flower), and for Strasbourg's new, Unified University, "UniStra", (as a long "S"), Rhine river came at the focus this week in Strasbourg, headquarters also of the oldest European Organisation : The Committee on Rhine's Navigation.. Meanwhile, Le Maire switched over from German (that he speaks fluently) to French, echoed, the other way round, by Gloser, who also understands French...
---------------------------------
The 2009 REPORT :
---------------------------------
eurodistrict_experts_report_handout_400
 
Experts' proposals for EuroDistrict's Legal status is to start in 2009 with a "European Group for Transborder Cooperation", and "replace it, when possible, .. with an Original Form" of a new legal entity.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
Citizens' oriented measures include to facilitate "acces to Health", "Mobile Phones", "Transborder Workers"', "School exchanges", etc., and other measures interesting Citizens, as f.ex. the creation of "Common Hospitals or Rescue centers", etc. Already, an agreement on "Urgent Medical Care" will be signed on February 10.

As "Economic Capital" of one of EU's most performant areas, known as "Ober-Rhein Metropolitan Region" ("superior Rhine" area), Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict "should also develop its role of European Cultural and Political Capital, Symbol of Franco-German entente and of a Democratic Europe", Experts' Report concludes.

This goes well beyond developping Bi-linguism, transbrorder Training and "systematic" rapprochment of both Cultures (in Cinema, Theater, Music, etc).

It adds a progressive transfert in EuroDistrict of "elements of the Franco-German Brigade", close to "EuroCorps" Headquarters, and culminates with the promotion of European institutions (see above).

The Report also proposes to launch an "initiative" for "EU Parliament's unique Headquarters", developing Strasbourg's attractiveness vis-a-vis MEPs and staff.

It also includes the development of "a Research and Higher Education pole", among French, German and Swiss partners, "linked with Strabourg's new; Unified University" and "Ortenau's HochSchulen"

It's not a coincidence that this same week was inaugurated Strasbourg's Unified University : - "UniStra" becomes the Biggest in France, (with more than 42.000 students, 5.200 staff, a brand new "European Doctoral College", some 100 Research centers, and a Capital of more than 400 million €  from the State), aiming to create closer links with nearby German and Swiss Universities, fex. Karlsruhe, Fribourg, Stutgard, Bale, etc, as French Minister for Scientific Research and Higher Education, Valerie PECRESSE advised.

(See other, related News, already sent to interested "EuroFora"s subscribers and donors, which will be also posted at the Website asap).

Last but not least :  Non-believers should meditate on the fact that all this was symbolically made in the same Strasbourg Historic Town Hall's room where even the establishement of Council of Europe was decided, 60 years back in 1949...

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
