It is well-known that the concept of nationality plays an important role in different fields of the law, be it private or public law, private international law (‘conflicts of law’) or public international law. While nationality is also frequently the subject of comparative analysis, and therefore of comparative law, little has so far been written on the conceptual and linguistic difficulties that arise in conducting comparative analyses of the nationality laws of different countries – especially if one does not rely on translations but examines them in the original languages. After giving an overview of the legal scholarship on legal translation and comparative law and assessing its relevance for the domain of nationality law (sections 2 and 3), the paper will continue with some remarks on the usefulness and quality of bi- and multilingual legal dictionaries for these fields of study (section 4). While my own experiences in conducting comparative and multilingual research on nationality law are referred to throughout the paper, section 5 will specifically give relevant examples from my work on the book Nationality Law in the Western Hemisphere: A Study on Grounds for Acquisition and Loss of Citizenship in the Americas and the Caribbean.

How do contemporary migrant mothers strategize return to their home countries? And how does the social protections available for their bi-national children in sending and destination countries factor in the decision to return? Through this contribution, we aimed to tackle these questions. We draw from the analysis of two longitudinal migratory careers and argue that our participant’s return decisions were influenced both by their children’s effective access to social protection and their subjective perceptions of ‘good-motherhood’. This Trans-Atlantic comparison shows how different situated-institutional-contexts, cultures of care and motherhood resulted into different patterns of mobility for these women and their families.

This cahier aims to identify and analyze the consequences of international migration movements on the school itineraries and aspirations of children who have been exposed to international migration between Mexico and the U. S. Some of these children are active actors of migratory flows because they moved from one country to another. Others are not active migrants; however, given the fact that they belong to divided families due to international migration, they are exposed to the impacts of their family members’ decisions. Consequently, two critical components of their migratory experiences will be the focus of our analysis. Firstly, we will analyze their school trajectory and secondly the family dispersion due to their migratory decisions. [less ▲]

Dans le cadre d’un recensement des terrils situés en Région wallonne et pouvant présenter des risques de stabilité sur le court et le long terme, l’ISSeP a chargé le Laboratoire de Géotechnologies de l’Université de Liège, représenté par Ir. F. COLLIN et S. DELVOIE, de réaliser une étude géotechnique préliminaire. Les objectifs de ce travail sont tout d’abord de recenser les informations disponibles sur le sous-sol aux environs immédiats des terrils. Les données recueillies sont ensuite exploitées par des outils informatiques SIG et seront par la suite utilisées dans l’évaluation du risque d’instabilité, réalisée par l’ISSeP. Ce travail documentaire est également complété par une inspection sur le terrain de chaque terril étudié. Les terrils faisant partie de l’étude géotechnique sont repris dans la liste ci-dessous : - Argenteau Ancien et Argenteau Nouveau – OBID 578-579 – L6 et L7 - Saint-Placide – OBID 343 – B60 - 14-17 et Siège social – OBID 5151 – B80-1 - Héribus – OBID 557 – B88-1 - Crachet 7/12 – OBID 286 – B111 [less ▲]

The European Union Reference Laboratory (EURL) for Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (EURL PAH), the EURL for Heavy Metals in Feed and Food (EURL HM), the EURL for Mycotoxins (EURL Mycotoxins), and EURL for Dioxins and PCBs in Feed and Food aim to provide with this document guidance to official food control in the EU on the estimation of the limit of quantification of analytical methods for the determination of individual substances in the field of contaminants in feed and food. The document focusses on estimation of the limit of detection (LOD) and/or limit of quantification (LOQ) of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heavy metals (HM), mycotoxins, and polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). The concept presented here consists of two major routes: The first route responds to the requirements for determination of PAHs, HMs and Mycotoxins. The second route corresponds to PCDD/F and PCB analysis, where results are calculated as sumparameters and expressed in toxic equivalents (TEQs), converting thereby congener concentrations together with estimated LOQs using toxic equivalency factor (TEFs) into TEQs. Due to the nature of this more complex procedure, emphasis is put in the area of PCDD/F and PCB analysis on the LOQs, while LODs are of minor consequence. Terminology in this guidance document was adapted to the chemical analysis of contaminants in feed and food; hence, some of the general terms defined and used in international standards were replaced by more specific terms applicable to analytical chemistry. The presented statistical-mathematical approach is based on elements taken mainly from DIN 32645:2008-11 (DIN 2008) and ISO 11843-2:2000 (ISO 2000). This document covers only quantitative methods of analysis. The authors believe that LOD and LOQ values derived from the application of the presented experimental methodologies converge to a certain degree. Estimation of LOD/LOQ values based on blank measurements, and from calibration data is described. Signal-to-noise ratios are applied in the area of PCDD/Fs and PCBs. Mathematical terms and statistical background are presented as well. This guide document shall be applied systematically if measurement results are used for monitoring purposes and exposure modelling. However, authors are aware that precise knowledge of LOD/LOQ may not be required when assessing compliance with maximum levels exceeding LOD/LOQ. This guidance document shall be applied if maximum levels and analysis results are close to the expected LOQ. The authors acknowledge that the presented approach has its limitations and may not be generally applicable to all cases. [less ▲]

The shared frailty model is a popular tool to analyze correlated right-censored time-to-event data. In the shared frailty model, the latent frailty is assumed to be shared by the members of a cluster and is assigned a parametric distribution, typically a gamma distribution due to its conjugacy. In the case of interval-censored time-to-event data, the inclusion of frailties results in complicated intractable likelihoods. Here, we propose a exible frailty model for analyzing such data by assuming a smooth semiparametric form for the conditional time-to-event distribution and a parametric or a exible form for the frailty distribution. The results of a simulation study suggest that the estimation of regression parameters is robust to misspeci cation of the frailty distribution (even when the frailty distribution is multimodal or skewed). Given su ciently large sample sizes and number of clusters, the exible approach produces smooth and accurate posterior estimates for the baseline survival function and for the frailty density, and can correctly detect and identify unusual frailty density forms. The methodology is illustrated using dental data from the Signal Tandmobiel® Study. [less ▲]

Estetrol (E4) is a natural estrogen we recently characterized as a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM) with agonistic and antagonistic activities depending on target cells. We have also evidenced the functional importance of mixed estrogenic/anti-estrogenic activities of E4 in normal breast development and cancer. Recent molecular studies, indicating that progesterone receptor (PGR) functions as a molecular rheostat to control ERα chromatin binding and transcriptional activity, have revolutionized our mechanistic insights of steroid receptor activities in malignant breast. E4 is a promising candidate for hormone replacement therapy (HRT) at menopause. However, the impact of the combined use of E4 and progesterone on normal breast physiology and on breast cancer development has not been evaluated yet. To fill this gap, we will evaluate the impact of treatments of E4 and/or progesterone on mammary gland development and breast cancer risk as well as on established breast cancer cells. We will unravel the molecular mechanisms driving the dual estrogenic/anti-estrogenic feature of E4 alone or combined to progesterone by evaluating the putative contribution of the extranuclear ERα, of GPER and by studying the modulation of ER/PGR interactions. This study will be conducted thanks to international collaborations (INSERM Toulouse, Reims, CNRS Rennes, Curie Institute Paris) we established through the EU SEPTIME project we coordinate. Through this project, we will bring new insights to the intriguing dual estrogenic/anti-estrogenic activity of E4. We will bring rational data about the putative safety of HRT combining E4 and progesterone. The development of an animal model assessing the effect of HRT on breast cancer risk in menopaused mice will also provide a useful tool to evaluate the effect of new HRT candidates on breast cancer risk. Moreover, the potential anti-tumor synergism of E4 and progesterone would contribute to the evolution of breast cancer treatment. [less ▲]

Une des tâches importantes prévues dans le programme PEGASE OPERA II est d’ajouter au modèle PEGASE la possibilité de calculer explicitement le pH. En effet, outre le fait que le pH intervient explicitement dans certaines normes de qualité, son influence sur certains processus simulés par PEGASE (phénomènes d’adsorption/désorption, …) justifie à elle seule cet ajout. Le calcul du pH dans les eaux de surface implique au minimum deux aspects à prendre en compte : - le pH dépend fortement du pouvoir tampon de l’eau, et donc des éléments minéraux lessivés (principalement le calcium et les carbonates) par le bassin versant, information peu disponible et dépendant fortement du type de sols. Le concept des fonctions d’apport des sols régionalisables utilisé dans Pegase prête assez bien à cette approche ; - une fois l’estimation des éléments minéraux lessivés par le bassin versant réalisée de manière cohérente, le pH peut être calculé sur base d’équations bien connues, vu que les principaux processus influençant le pH (photosynthèse notamment) sont déjà inclus dans PEGASE. Ce rapport technique (destiné aux utilisateurs avertis du logiciel PegOpera) reprend une description des tests de calibration des fonctions d’apport régionalisées (pour les macroéléments) réalisés sur le bassin de la Loire.

From the Sahel to the coast, West Africa is experiencing a variety of climate change impacts, including sea level rise, soil salinization, floods, drought, and desertification, while simultaneously suffering from other forms of environmental degradation. Together, these environmental changes are significantly influencing migration patterns in and out of West Africa. This paper seeks to analyze vulnerability and resilience to environmental changes as they affect and are affected by mobility patterns in the region. We assert that the impact of environmental changes cannot be isolated from other political, social, economic, and demographic pressures that together drive human mobility. In a region where natural resources form the foundation of livelihoods and food security (fishing and agriculture), the relationship between environmental changes and socioeconomic vulnerabilities is of particular concern. This paper therefore draws from four distinct case studies to grasp the variegated and cumulative vulnerability and resilience among local populations as they relate to internal and intraregional migration.

The EU Succession Regulation (Regulation 650/2012) allows for cross-border circulation of authentic instruments in a matter of succession. Authentic instruments are documents created by authorised authorities which benefit from certain evidential advantages. As this Regulation does not harmonise Member State substantive laws or procedures concerning succession the laws relating to the domestic evidentiary effects of succession authentic instruments remain diverse. Article 59 of the Succession Regulation requires the Member States party to the Regulation to give succession authentic instruments the evidentiary effects they would enjoy in their Member State of origin. The only limits on this obligation being public policy or the irreconcilability of the authentic instrument with a court decision, court settlement or another authentic instrument. This report, which was commissioned by the University of Aberdeen in the framework of a request of the Committee on Legal Affairs, provides an information resource for legal practitioners concerning the evidentiary effects of succession authentic instruments in Belgium.

1.1 Background Alcohol consumption is a widespread phenomenon in western societies and it is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Problematic alcohol use affects an estimated 3.6% of the population between 15 and 64 years of age worldwide. The Belgian health survey found that 10% of the Belgian population has a problematic alcohol use. However, only a small proportion of people with a problematic alcohol use seeks or receives treatment. A European study (including Belgium) found that only 8% of persons with an alcohol problem had consulted some form of professional assistance in the past year. A Belgian study found that 12.8% of persons with an alcohol use problem indicated they searched for help in the year after the problem started but 61% did so in later years with a mean delay of 18 years. So, many people who could profit from help/assistance do not seek or receive it and there is a long delay. It may be concluded that there is a large ‘treatment gap’. 1.2 Research aim To analyse explanations for the treatment gap and to find ways and interventions, including facilitators and barriers in applying these, to improve the treatment rate of people with problematic alcohol use in Belgium. 1.3 Methods This study applied 3 research approaches: • Review of the international and Belgian literature o Medline, EMBASE, Cochrane Library and Psychinfo and grey literature sources were searched in summer 2014 for review studies and for Belgian primary studies with date limit >2000 and written in English, Dutch, French or German o Literature was categorized into barriers/facilitators for seeking/starting treatment in individuals with problematic alcohol use, in care professionals and in society and into interventions for reducing the treatment in the mentioned three groups o Only descriptive analyses of the literature were appliedQualitative research by interviews with persons with an alcohol use problem (n=14), and interviews and focus groups with care professionals, and experts in the alcohol field (n=60) o To identify the factors on a personal, organisational and societal level that impede or facilitate the screening and advice given by professionals, initiation of treatment, and treatment-uptake by individuals with AUP; o To understand the complex interactions between those factors; o To identify the interventions/measures the surveyed individuals and professionals would consider effective in reducing the treatment gap from the point of view of the professionals and patients. • Delphi study with persons with an alcohol use problem, care professionals, policy makers and experts (total across groups n= 35) in the alcohol field to check acceptability and priority of recommendations for improvement of the treatment o Two rounds by online questionnaire were planned and a face to face meeting afterwards with Delphi-participants to discuss results of previous rounds and to reach final agreement 1.4 Results In the literature study 85 relevant reviews and 22 Belgian primary studies were included. It was found that individuals with AUP follow a long road before seeking help. Main barriers along the road are denial of the problem, belief that alcohol problems may improve on their own, desire to handle problems on their own, thinking that treatment is ineffective or uncomfortable, dislike of the prevalent group, fear of stigma, lack of financial resources and other. Next it was found that care professionals face also many barriers to initiate a kind of intervention; common mentioned barriers are lack of time and lack of knowledge and confidence. Also it appeared there is a societal/public stigma towards people with a problematic alcohol use, causing a barrier for affected persons to seek help. Several effective interventions targeted at easing patient barriers and help them to seek treatment or initiate behaviour change were found: Screening-brief interventions-referral to treatment (SBIRT) by health care professionals, internet based screening and awareness programs,stigma reducing interventions. Also a large amount of research was found to overcome these impediments. Main intervention for patients is making them aware of their problem, e.g. by screening on alcohol use and motivational brief interventions. Main interventions for professionals is to train and to motivate them to screen and give brief interventions; however, all reviews stated as well that there was a lot of diversity in training formats and intensity, making it difficult to synthetize the results and to define the optimum duration and format of such initiatives. Interventions at a societal level are less clear The qualitative study revealed that several barriers as well as facilitators are experienced by individuals with AUP and professionals. It appears that the treatment gap is a multiple phenomenon. Some elements are related to the individuals with an AUP, some others to the health professionals, and, more globally, in the socioeconomic context. Four main themes could be deduced from the interviews: individuals with AUP go through a long and stepped (however not always a linear) process before becoming aware of and recognising their problem; relatives (at home or in the social network) and colleagues (at work) play an important role along the persons’ trajectory; professionals lack the time, knowledge, skills and proper attitudes and they pass the buck when it comes to tackling the AUP; and the origin and treatment of AUP are largely influenced by societal habits and views. It appeared that more information is needed among the general population about alcohol-related problems and healthcare professionals’ knowledge on the topic, and the skills to manage it properly should be enhanced. In addition contextual and societal barriers have to be tackled. The Delphi-study resulted in a general consensus on all proposals, based on the literature and the qualitative study. But it was stressed that it is necessary to implement the proposals simultaneously to enhance synergy. 1.5 Conclusion The three research approaches confirmed each other and showed that the treatment gap for persons with problematic alcohol use is a multi-layered problem (individuals with AUP, their relatives, professionals, care system and general society). There are effective interventions to lower the treatment gap, but to obtain maximal effectiveness measures have to be taken at all levels in simultaneous way. [less ▲]

The present work is dedicated to the behaviour of composite joints under combined bending moments and axial loads. The results presented in this part have been mainly developed in [1]. The component method is a nowadays widely recognized procedure for the evaluation of the design properties of structural joints. It is used as a reference method in the Eurocodes and the proposed rules in these codes are mainly devoted to the characterization of joints subjected to bending moments and shear forces. However, in some situations, these joints can be subjected to combined axial loads and bending moments, for instance in frames subjected to an exceptional event leading to the loss of a column, situation where significant tying forces can developed in the structural beams above the lost column. The purpose of this work is to present and validate a design model, founded on the component method, aiming at predicting the behaviour of composite joints subjected to combined axial loads and bending moments. In particular, in the following the validation of this model through comparisons to recent experimental tests performed on steel composite beam-to-column joints at University of Stuttgart will be presented. The proposed method is mainly adapted from the former research work of Demonceau [2]. Some changes are made in order to improve the former method and also to extend it to the type of joints used in the framework of the current European project (Deliverable 5). Beam to column composite joints with flush-end-plate connection are mainly investigated hereinafter. The work will manly focus on the behaviour of joints under sagging moments, as it has not been widely researched yet in comparison to joints under hogging moment. An excel-based routine of the proposed method has been developed; it has been designed to be adaptable to different types of composite joints, with the objective to facilitate the verification and/or the application of the above-mentioned design model.

La PAC, définie dans le traité de Rome et mise en oeuvre depuis 1962, est soumise, depuis le début des années 90, à un processus de réforme afin de répondre aux nouveaux défis de l’agriculture européenne mais également afin d’honorer les engagements pris par l'Union européenne (UE) dans le cadre de ses relations commerciales internationales. Le 18 novembre 2010, la Commission européenne a publié une communication sur la PAC de l’après 2013, suivie le 12 octobre 2011 de propositions législatives, lançant de longues négociations entre le Conseil européen des Ministres de l’Agriculture et, pour la première fois de l’histoire de la PAC, le Parlement européen, nouveau co-législateur pour cette matière. En parallèle aux négociations sur la PAC se déroulaient celles relatives au cadre financier pluriannuel 2014-2020 (CFP). Ce dernier fixe non seulement les montants des ressources financières pour chaque catégorie de dépenses de l’UE mais également inclut des décisions sur des éléments importants des politiques elles-mêmes dont celles relatives à la PAC. Après plus de 18 mois de négociations budgétaires, les chefs d’Etat de chaque Etat membre (EM) sont parvenus à un accord concernant le CFP 2014-2020 lors du conseil européen des 7 et 8 février 2013. Peu de temps après cet accord budgétaire, le Conseil Agriculture, le Parlement européen et la Commission européenne ont abouti à un accord sur les Règlements relatifs à la PAC le 26 juin 2013, complété le 24 septembre 2013. Un des résultats du nouveau Règlement « Paiements directs », négocié entre les 28 EM et le Parlement européen, est une nouvelle architecture des paiements directs ainsi qu’un nombre très important de choix stratégiques à prendre par les EM, et dans le cas de la Belgique, les Régions, qui doivent choisir parmi différentes options qui restent ouvertes par la réglementation européenne. La plupart des choix politiques des EM et régions ont dû être notifiées à la Commission européenne pour le 1er août 2014, certains choix un peu plus tardivement (les dernières décisions, plus techniques, devaient être notifiées pour le 31 janvier 2015).

The numerical recalculation performed on the slab, beam and joint tests as well as the analytical recalculation of these tests have been employed as support for the experimental investigations represented within the previous chapter. In particular, numerical and analytical analysis have been performed to design the experimental test and the test setup for the symmetric and the asymmetric 3D test performed by UTRE. For the 2D-frame tests a numerical simulation was performed and the analytical model was validated. In addition to the recalculation of the experimental investigations on composite joints some parameters were varied in order to evaluate the influence on the behavior of the composite joints. Furthermore an analytical approach to predict the response of joints subjected to M-N-loading was investigated. In addition, analytical calculations have been performed in order to predict the results of the static and dynamic experimental tests. [less ▲]

The present report focuses on the design of the experimental analysis that are going to be performed within the ROBUSTIMPACT project (Grant Agreement Number: RFSR-CT-2012-00029). The project focuses on the behavior of composite steel and concrete framed buildings against accidental actions. Within the project, several experimental analyses are going to be performed spanning from the local to the global behavior. The report is divided in 4 parts, each one describing the preliminary work of each partner of the project. In particular:  Part A reports the work performed by USTUTT (University of Stuttgart) including the design of four experimental tests on composite joints and two experimental tests on composite frames. In particular, the composite joints will be investigated in order to better understand the behavior in terms of activation of catenary actions. The tests on composite frames are performed investigating the influence of the high speed loading and strain rate effects on the deformation capacity of these structures.  Part B reports the work performed by ULg (University of Liege) including the design of 44 experimental impact tests on beam-to-column joints and column base joints. With these tests will be possible to investigate the response of different joint components under impact loading for different level of energy.  Part C reports the work performed by UTRE (Università degli Studi di Trento) including the design of the case study reference structures and the design of the experimental tests. In particular, two 3D full scale tests will be performed by simulating to total loss of the impacted column in order to investigate the redundancy of the 3D slab system in terms of activation of membrane effects.  Part D reports the work performed by RWTH (University of Aachen) including the design of six crash tests on columns that are going to be performed in order to investigate the residual strength of the damaged member after the impact. The aim is to determine the response of the member during the impact as well as the dynamic interaction of the member with the surrounding structure. [less ▲]

The present document details the design guidelines which emanates from the RobustImpact project. The reasoning used is depicted below in Figure 1-1. The first step is to define the impact scenario and its key parameters. Then the impact can be characterized as a hard impact or as a soft impact. The first option assumes that the kinetic energy of the impactor is absorbed by the impactor itself while the second option assumes that the kinetic energy of the impactor is mainly absorbed by the column, thus leading to plastic deformations and the activation of geometrical non-linear effects in the column. If the soft impact is considered, the buckling resistance of the column must be examined in order to evaluate if the impacted column shows sufficient residual resistance after the impact. If this is not the case, the structure will resist if it is able to sustain the load initially carried by the impacted column by redistributing it in the damaged structure, i.e. if it is able to activate alternative load path. The resistance brought by other structural elements will then be evaluated. If the impacted column is a peripheral column, the yield line theory is used to evaluate the resistance of both slab and beams. In case of a central column, Bailey’s method evaluating the slab resistance taking into account the membrane effect is used to determine the contribution of the slab. The contribution of the beams is then quantified by evaluating the corresponding P-u curve. All the methods have been validated using FEM softwares. Since the project concerns structures whose columns are impacted by vehicles, the accidental load combination must be considered. In addition, the yield strength of the steel should be considered as 𝑓𝑦,𝑑𝑦𝑛= 𝜇.𝑓𝑦> 𝑓𝑦 . Indeed was proved than the steel mechanical properties are better under dynamic loading. Nevertheless, there is for the moment no available quantification for the majoring coefficient that should apply to 𝑓𝑦 : this could be done realizing tests. [less ▲]

At the Institute for Steel Structures crash tests on columns were carried out to investigate the dynamic response of the member during the impact as well as the dynamic interaction of the member with the surrounding structure. The tests' campaign planned by the Università degli Studi di Trento comprises of: - two full-scale tests on 3D specimens representative of the reference buildings; From two reference structures selected as cases study two representative substructures characterised by the same overall dimensions but by a symmetric and an asymmetric configuration (i.e., column layout), respectively, have been identified. The substructures, built in laboratory, are tested reproducing the collapse of a central column. The aim of the tests is to investigate the influence of the biaxial membrane effect associated with the concrete slab in a framed structure when the collapse of a column happens. - 20 tensile tests on T-stubs related to the beam-to-column joint adopted in the reference structures and in the full-scale specimens. T-stubs associated to both the column (10 specimens) and the end-plate (10 specimens) are tested. The tests are performed at two different loading speeds aiming at investigating the influence of strain rate effects on the joint performance, with particular reference to the deformation capacity. As a reference, also quasi-static tests are planned. At the Institute of Structural Design experimental tests were carried out investigating the behaviour of 2D-frames under a column loss. In addition the behaviour of composite joints under high speed loading was examined. Within the framework of the project, two tests on composite frames were tested as well as four tests on composite joints. The 2D substructure tests planned at USTUTT have the objective to evaluate the benefit of the concrete slab compared to the behaviour of the composite frame structure concerning the development of a membrane effect. For this purpose, the results of the composite frame tests will be compared to the 3D substructure tests performed at UTRE. Therefore, the test specimens of the 2D substructure tests are adapted to the 3D substructure tests. In order to compare also the results of the composite joint tests to the behaviour of the frames and to observe the influence of the joints on each other the test specimens for the joint tests are also adapted to the frame tests. Experimental impact tests were planned at the University of Liege (ULg): 22 tests on beam-to-column joints with 5 different joint configurations and 22 tests on column base joints with 4 different joint configurations. One of the objectives of the performed study was to propose realistic joints and column bases which could fit with the laboratory facilities of ULg, what induced a downscaling of the dimension of the members in comparison to the dimension of the ones met in the reference building. With the designed specimens, it is possible to investigate the response of different joint components under impact loading, for different levels of energy (small, medium and high levels), and to compare this response to the one obtained through a static test to highlight the dynamic effects. These static tests are performed for each type of specimens and will be used to clearly determine the different level of energy to be used for the impact tests. The general test setup for all tests was derived in Work Package 3 and can be found in the deliverable D.4.1 [18] of the project. [less ▲]

Deliverable 11 and 12 have been merged in the present document which can be seen as the main outcome of the activities conducted with Work Package 9 of the Robustimpact project. Section 2 presents first the sophisticated numerical investigations conducted on a reference structure subjected to impacts of vehicles. Then, Section 3 presents in details the simplified analytical models/tools developed within the present project to predict the response of a structure (or a part of a structure) further to the impact of a vehicle. With the presented models, it is demonstrated that an accurate prediction of the structural results may be obtained and that all the parameters influencing this response are mastered. Section 4 introduces the different parametric studies which have been conducted (partly using the models/tools presented in Section 3) on 2D and 3D steel and composite structures or on composite floors. Finally, Section 5 highlights the structural requirements which can be proposed as an outcome of the performed investigations. Through this document, it is demonstrated that the different objectives of Work Package 9 have been reached in the framework of this project. [less ▲]

The evaluation of adaptive facades presents a challenge because there is no established evaluation strategy to systematically reach this goal and many of the available façade performance evaluation tools have limited applicability for such advanced building facades. This report presents a case study for an adaptive glass façade and evaluates its performance. The evaluation focuses mainly on pre and post construction phase of adaptive facades: The design assist phase (including the durability test, visual mockup, onsite panel mounting and weather stripping), the commissioning phase (field verification and performance testing) and the monitoring phase. The selected project is a nearly zero energy building with unique façade comprising thermal isolated glass sunshades printed with white silk screen. These louvers respond dynamically and automatically to the angle of the sun which improves the control over energy consumption, solar radiation and glare with the ability to admit natural light into the building. The report is part of the research activities of working group 3 of the European COST Action 1403 on “Adaptive Facades “.Different methods were used for evaluation, this include: interviews with the architect, façade engineer and technical control specialist, reviews of standard and codes and a systematic process mapping. A documentation of the case study describing the post construction occupant comfort and façade operation was prepared. This report audience is mainly architects, building façade engineers together with facility managers concerned with the process of design, construction and operation of adaptive glass facades. The outcome of this report identifies effective strategies for the design and performance evaluation of optimal adaptive facades. [less ▲]

It describes the practices and approaches in all EU Member States as regards the prevention and eradication of statelessness. For that purpose the different national practices are assessed in light of the relevant international and European standards. Since proper mechanisms to identify stateless populations are lacking in a majority of Member States, the study addresses the procedures used in determining statelessness and analyses the role of the EU in preventing and reducing statelessness.
