*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)...

    Scientific innovation joined to Faith for Human Rights, Eastern Partnership and fight against the Crisis, but above all, the need to overcome the "Crisis of Trust" from EU Citizens, are the main priorities for new EU Parliament's President, Polish Jerzy Buzek, that a 555-votes-strong majority of MEPs on July 14,  Strasbourg made a living symbol of the fact that, 20 years after the fall of Berlin Wall (1989 - 2009) there is no more an Eastern or Western Europe, but only one Europe, as the head of the largest group of MEPs, ChristianDemocrats/EPP, Joseph Daul, stressed after the event.

    Speaking later to a group of Strasbourg's Journalists, including "EuroFora", the new EU Parliament's President clarified his stance on concrete topical issues, as f.ex. that of Turkey's controversial EU bid, which was one of the main issues of the June 2009 Electoral campain, clearly won by his party of ChristianDemocrats/EPP :  - "At present, Turkey does not fullfil none of EU conditions", he stressed, (See infra).

imag0958_400

    Buzek is well known in Strasbourg and to "EuroFora" as EU Rapporteur for the Framework Program of Scientific Research and Development of Technologies. A Natural Science Professor from the Historic and Religious landmark Polish City of Częstochowa, active in the famous Solidarnosk grass-roots social movement, he served 4 years as Prime Minister (1997-2001), before being elected as MEP in 2004 and 2009, after he brillantly won the latest EU Election at the head of his party (EPP) almost doubling the number of its MEPs from 15 to 28 !

    - "Innovation" and "Energy safety", as well as fight against the "Cimat change", but also "Eastern Partnership", the "Mediterranean", "Strategic partnerships" with Russia, the USA, etc, and the search for "solutions to the Economic Crisis" that EU Citizens "expect" from us, will be his "priorities", announced from the outset the new EU Parliament's President, reminding also that the quest for "Human and Civic Rights" played an important role in his experience with the Solidarnosc grass-roots social movement in Poland's History

    But, the most important of all, is the urgent need to overcome the "Crisis of Trust" between EU Institutions and the People he stressed : - EU "Citizens often don't understand us", denounced Buzek, launcing a call to "do anything for EU Citizens to understand our work" in EU Parliament : "We (MEPs) need to make EU Citizens involved" in "what we are doing every week, in Strasbourg and Brussels", he proposed. Pointing f.ex. to the hot "Debates" with "strong arguments" exchanged between MEPs during the preparation of their Legislative Decisions, in Committees, delivering often hard struggles between initially opposed points of view, long before forging a majority at the final vote, sometimes more than a year..

    Therefore, EU Parliament will be "open to your criticism, for discussion and exchange of views", he promissed to Journalists in Strasbourg.

    In this way, Buzek, in fact, highlighted "EuroFora"s main idea, that we strongly advocate since 1997-2007, to systematicaly and actively involve EU Citizens in public debates during the decision-making process of important EU measures, which affect their lives and the society in which they live, (and not only just a few weeks each 4 or 5 Years at the eve of EU Elections)...
--------------------
    This is related also to the symbolic gift that Buzek chose to give to the out-going former EU Parliament's President, Hans Gert Poettering, (2007-2009), his collegue in the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, who brillantly won 2009 EU Elections in Germany : A genuine statute of sainte Barbara crafted in Silesia's black Coal by Polish Miners : Those simple but strong people who fought for social change against some technocrats and bureaucrats disguissed into so-called "real-socialists" of old times. (PHOTO).

    It's enough to have seen a popular open air mass, at Warsaw's center, with many thousands of people, old and young, simple workers and intellectuals mixed together, with references to Poland's history and struggles for survival and liberty, through various ages, (as fex. that organized at the eve of CoE's 2005 panEuropean Heads of State and Government for the beatification of late Pope John-Paul II), in order to understand what such symbols mean..

    But, overcoming the "Crisis of Trust" with EU Citizens obviously implies also to rectify any errors done in the past, fex. on Turkey's controversial EU bid, with controversial decisions taken in 1999 and 2004 to give a "candidate" status and to start EU negotiations, provoking an unprecedented series of 3 "No" to EuroReferenda and 3 Majoriy Abstentions in EU Parliament Elections : 1999, 2005 and 2009, (even if the latest one succeeded to decelerate and almost stop the drop of participation rates, opening hopes for vote's revival after an electoral campaign clearly critical to Turkey's claims in several mainstream EU countries)
    
    Therefore, Buzek was faced with manifold critical Questions on EU Enlargement, most of them citting concrete examples of certain political problems  :  But his replies were almost always given as a matter of general principle :

    F.ex. Questioned on the suspension of EU - Croatia talks because of a Border conflict with EU Member Slovenia, Buzek prefered to speak about principles :

- "We know that during Enlargement, the process can be blocked by failure to resolve this kind of issues",  This concerns also other enlargments' cases", and "these rules are always in force" he warned.


But Buzek avoided to directly reply to a queston on "French and German EPP' calls to define the Borders of Europe", as a German journalist asked him by making a reference to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and German Chancellor Angie Merkel's, critical statements on Turkey at the June 2009 Electoral campain.    

- "Concerning Enlargement, there's always the same rules : There have to be Criteria, which have to be respected if a Country wants to join the EU", he started to simply reply.

- "For my country (Poland) it took us 15 Years to fullfil these Criteria", Buzek reminded, indicating, if proportions are kept, that Turkey, fex. would have to spend some 25 years before eventually joining the EU..

- "Countries wishing to join the EU need to Change their Systems", as we (Poland and other former Eastern European Countries) did, he stressed.

- "'For me, meeting the condition of Human Rights is one of the Key conditions for membership in the EU", preferring again to speak from the point of view of General Principles, on the occasion of an untimely question on Serbia (which is not even a candidate yet)...

- "Turkey" has, "first of all", to fullfil (EU) Copenhagen criteria". Bevause, currently, none of them is fullfiled by Turkey", New EU Parliament's President, denounced, speaking later to a group of Journalists, including "EuroFora".

In particular, on Human Rights :  - "We (EU) can never forget Human Rights", because "this is at the very Foundations of the EU", Buzek added.

On the contrary, when he referred to EU Enlargment for the  "Western Balkans Countries ", Buzek appeared upbeat, finding "promising situations", despite "difficulties" in the Past, since "Countries are queuing to become EU members", and this "generated changes", as he said.

As for Russia, Buzek observed that it was a "very important" country, located "in the same Continent", Europe,  "close to our borders", and "we need eachother". "But Russia' has 'differend poblems : "They claim that their system is Democratic, but rules are differend", and we must be "aware of such differencies", fex. "on Human Rights", that we can't ignore, as he said;

Concerning China, where a journalist observed that the recipient of EU Parliament's latest "Sakharov prize" for freedom of thought is "still in prison", Buzek found that since the 1999 events in Tien Amin square, "we see differencies on Human Rights still today", and expressed his "support" for those who try to ameliorate the situation.

On the contrary, speaking recently to "EuroFora" he strongly supported the idea for an EU - Ukraine cooperation, fex. between Airbus and Antonov, in order to build a  less costly but more performant than the old and problematic A400M, new Military Transport Airplane : - "They (Ukranian Antonov Company) can certainly do it. I'm sure they can. It's a good Idea, and I'd be glad if it was done", he told us. (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/airbusantonov.html )
