Barland et al. describe an example project showcasing the strengths of technology assessment methodology in structuring stakeholder dialogues in a cross-European context. The authors provide an in-depth account of the method design choices made and their underlying rationale. Beyond the buzzword, well-structured and transparent stakeholder dialogue can help to balance difficult issues of policy priority – in this case by balancing the contributions of technological innovation against social reorganization as a means of securing sustainable future health-care service for senior citizens. The article shows the added value of multi-site dialogues based in national debates but linked to the European policy development process [less ▲]

In this paper we build on the achievements of a cross-European stakeholder involvement experience which aimed at providing both the national and the EU level with input for meeting the societal and technological challenges and opportunities of an aging population by 2025. Six European countries/regions were engaged in three scenarios dealing differently with two main concerns: (1) Is it the public or private health care providers who are providing future elderly care? (2) How do the senior citizens and other groups in the society organise themselves in order to meet the needs for care? In our presentation, specific attention will be given to the data collected in Wallonia, Belgium, although data collected in other countries will be produced when relevant. Our methodology is threefold, combining input from a wide range of experts who made a technology overview describing available care technology and home-based telemedicine; an overview of policy measures related to telecare and home-based telemedicine; and a scenario workshop that engaged stakeholders (from the care and health sectors, the industry and public authorities) and allowed us to elaborate visions on the use of telecare in the ageing society along classical cornerstones of welfare systems. Such visions will be analyzed taking into account the current transformations of the Belgian federal State and the implications for the survival Belgian healthcare system will be drawn. Lastly, we will discuss important differences and similarities between European nation-states and offer concluding observation with regard to the relevance of methodological nationalism to address global challenges such as aging societies.

The Future of Belgian Federalism is definitely a hot topic in Belgian politics but also in citizens’ daily life. Indeed, citizens do talk about it and wonder – and sometimes try to predict – how the future of Belgium will be. Yet, we only know their attitudes on this important topic through surveys either undertaken by the media or by social scientists. Thus far, no endeavour has been done to study thoroughly and qualitatively citizens’ preferences for the future of their country. In this paper, I propose to offer a first attempt of such an analysis relying on data collected in two small citizens’ panels about the future of Belgian federalism. These two deliberative events were held in Liege (French-speaking Belgium) in September 2007 and in Antwerp (Dutch-speaking Belgium) in October 2008 and gathered respectively 64 and 23 citizens from a variety of backgrounds. During one day, the participants talked about the future of Belgian federalism with fellow citizens in focus groups as well as with politicians and experts; in addition, they answered a pre- and a post-questionnaire. Following Max Weber’s advice to construct ideal type as a way to apprehend the reality and to foster comparisons, types of citizens are constructed on the basis of the data collected in Liège and in Antwerp. While four types of French-speaking are drawn from the former – the unitarist, the unionist, the federalist, and the regionalist –, five emerge from the latter – the unitarist, the unionist, the federalist, the regionalist, and the separatist/independentist. These different types are defined in terms of the citizens’ perceptions and preferences as well as the congruence that followed the learning and deliberative process that occurred throughout the panel. Above all, the types can be compared within the panel and between the panels. In this fashion the future of Belgian federalism can be explored through the eyes of the citizens. [less ▲]

Issues for discussion: 1) Two peoples claiming the same real estate? A Brussels which is 90% Francophone and cradle of the Flemish cultural heritage. The ‘droit du sol’ vs ‘droit des gens’. 2) A conflict between linguistic communities? or a cultural divide between Neo-liberal Anglo-Saxon culture in the North and Continental dirigisme in the South? 3) Has Romantic nationalism of the Flemish separatist movement truly been supplanted by ‘Nationalists with Calculators’? 4) The position of the monarchy and the traditional elites in the growing social and political crisis. 5) The EU as unwitting facilitator of the Continent’s cascading self-determinations: the alignment of Bart de Wever’s most populous party in Flanders with an EU identity [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Obesity causes serious medical complications and impairs quality of life. However, its management remains challenging. OBJECTIVE: To assist health professionals who counsel patients who are overweight or obese by discussing the possible add-on value of new drugs over lifestyle interventions. METHODS: A critical analysis is made of the available evidence of the long-term efficacy of diet and exercise and/or anti-obesity agents such as orlistat, sibutramine and rimonabant. RESULTS/CONCLUSION: Lifestyle interventions remain the cornerstone of the treatment of obesity, but adherence is poor and long-term success is modest. Pharmacological agents may be useful adjuncts for improving weight loss and maintenance, and health outcomes, and should be continued in good responders. Drug therapy and lifestyle intervention are not opponent strategies, but should probably be combined to tackle obesity. [less ▲]

The recent UNESCO Recommendations on the historic hurban landscape insist on the opportunity to "shift from an emphasis on architectural monuments primarly" towards "a landscape approach" including "the broader urban context and its geographical setting", to understand historic urban landscape "as the result of a historic layerling, and to create new tools to adress this vision". Along this line of thought of thought, the proposed approach expands the traditional contents of architectural guides, providing keys to reconsider and evaluate the listed works' contribution to the evolution of their immediate surrounding, to the urban structure as a whole, up to the territorial scale. Moving from a design-oriented perspective and using the methods of urban morphology, the work consists mainly of set of original schemes, maps and drawings of Liège and its neighborhoods, as means to reveal the urban structure, its layerling over time, and the role of architectural heritage in clarifuing, enhancing, or even degrading the coherence of the urban artifact. Halfway between popular and scholarly literature, the forthcoming guides aim to become at both times "handbooks for city decoding" and blueprints for urban design. Providing tools lo read, comprehehen, and appreciate the part played by built heritage in a city's evolution and in the shaping of our daily environment helps to understand urban environments as a process bearing the overlapping influences of many experiments, partially implemented plans, competing visions and contradictory ideas. As a result, both the ordinary and specialized audience can possibly raise their awareness and perception of modernist architecture's legacy, but also learn how certain qualities were achieved and how certain local issues came about, acquiring relevant critical keys to take part as stakeholders or designers in the debate over the future city.

As part of the ICE2SEA project, the regional climate model MAR was forced by the global models HadCM3 and ECHAM5 for making future projections of the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) Surface Mass Balance (SMB) over 1980-2099 at a resolution of 25km. However, the comparison with MAR forced by the ERA-40 reanalysis over 1980-1999 shows that MAR forced by these GCMs is not able to represent reliably the current SMB due to biases in the general circulation and in the free atmosphere summer temperature modelled by these GCMs around the GrIS. <br /> <br /> That is why, we present here first results of MAR forced by the next generation of GCMs from the CMIP5 data base (CanESM2 and NorESM1 here). The comparison with the ERA-40 forced MAR simulations over current climate is a lot of better, which increases the reliability and the interest of these new MAR projections. In addition, the new scenarios (RCP 2.6, 4.5, 6.0 and 8.5) of the next IPCC Assessment Report (AR5) are used here. These new simulations show notably that the response of SMB to rising temperature is not a linear function of the temperature anomalies due to the positive albedo feedback which accelerates the surface melt. For 2100, in case of extreme rising temperature (RCP 8.5 scenario), MAR simulates a surface GrIS mass loss corresponding to a cumulated sea level rise of about 15 cm since 2000! Mainly the changes in SMB and in surface energy balance will be discussed here. [less ▲]
