In this paper we analyze the levels of technical efficiency and productivity growth attained by Spanish insurance companies during a period of deregulation. We compute Malmquist productivity indexes using the estimates of parametric distance function for several specialized insurance branches. In this way, we show that branch specialization matters a great deal and that firms combining two or three product lines (Health, Property-Liabilities and Life) perform better than firms operating in one insurance line exclusively. In the light of these results, we recommend that the remaining restrictions coming from the European Third Directives on the operations of multi-branch firms should be removed. Moreover, from a management point of view, it would be appropriate to encourage the creation of multi-branch insurance firms. However, in all cases, the estimated scores indicate low productivity growth (less than 2% per year) compared with a huge increase in insurance activity (premiums were multiplied by nearly 3 in a decade) [less ▲]

The pool of early retirees is characterized by a large heterogeneity along several criteria. The present paper focuses on the key distinction between those in forced early retirement and those who retire early by individual choice. We start by estimating a retirement probit model for older workers in Belgium. Based on these estimates, we then perform micro-simulations relating to a hypothetical actuarial reform of a pension system, i.e., a reform imposing on average actuarial neutrality with respect to the time of retirement. We explore two scenarios, one where the entire population is subjected to the actuarial system, and one where a duly screened sub-sample of the unemployed is shielded against these actuarial adjustment factors, a group we call the truly unemployed. We evaluate the impact on the average retirement age, the pension budgets as well as indicators of redistribution within the group of the elderly. We find that the extra budgetary gain of exposing this subgroup to the full-blown reform is modest, while the distributional cost is rather high. Our results thus comfort the idea that the budgetary cost of a focused unemployment system are moderate, and that returning the unemployment insurance to its primary role might be a desirable strategy.

Political resistance to a progressive increase in the retirement age is widespread in a number of European countries. We present a simple model explaining why such a reform can be opposed even when it is profitable to a majority of citizens. Then, we try to explain the existence of wide differences in the average length of retirement across countries and over time. [less ▲]

Size, mass and power consumption for devices and instruments are severely constrained on space missions. Therefore, space missions can benefit significantly of the MEMS technologies since they offer the advantages of low mass, low power consumption and reliability with novel capacities. Given the prohibitive costs of launching any payload into space (between 10 000 and 100 000 $ per kg) the trend during last decade has been towards “smaller, faster and cheaper” space missions. Several micro-spacecraft mission have been proposed or are currently under development. The increased interest in using nanosatellites in space science missions is also due to the possibility to form nanosatellite constellation. Hundreds of small and lightweight nanosatellites can form an intelligent constellation acting as a distributed network of instruments. Applications dedicated to space encounter particular and very often critical environment. Satellites or spacecraft are confronted to multiple effects that are encounter only in space. Space environment effects constitute a critical issue for the MEMS space qualification. The natural and induced space environment can cause a range of problems for spacecraft and space missions. Environmental factors include the natural radiation belts, solar energetic particles, cosmic rays, plasmas, gases, and "micro-particles", vacuum, extreme temperatures, vibrations… We propose here a brief review of this space environment to understand the conditions that MEMS should be able to sustain during space missions. Then a brief description of this environment on failure mechanism is given. Finally, we will develop in particular the radiation-induced effect. The simplest definition of reliability is quality over time. Since time is involved in reliability, it is often measured by a rate. Just as quality is usually measured in terms of rejects (or un-quality), reliability is measured in terms of failures (or un-reliability). [less ▲]

Le cahier des charges de cette petite étude prévoyait trois étapes: - précision de la faisabilité des lignes-guides pour la Wallonie, - comparaison des distances calculées par les lignes-guides aux zones de nuisances olfactive évaluées par d'autres méthodes, - proposition pour une réglementation ou un guide de bonnes pratiques applicables en Wallonie. Le groupe de recherche d'Arlon a décidé de tester la faisabilité des lignes-guides existant dans d'autres pays ou régions sur base d'études de cas concrets, avec visites de terrain. En simulant, pour chacun de ces cas, la dispersion des odeurs au moyen d'un modèle de dispersion atmosphérique, il est alors possible de vérifier si les limitations spatio-temporelles ainsi déterminées par les percentiles, sur base de débits d'odeur fournis par la littérature, sont cohérentes avec les distances préconisées par les lignes-guides. Les résultats de ces deux premières étapes peuvent alors servir à jeter les bases d'une méthode adaptée à la Wallonie. [less ▲]

De manière très schématique, on peut définir l'apprentissage en tandem de la manière suivante : il s'agit de mettre en contact deux élèves qui ne partagent pas la même langue maternelle et qui souhaitent apprendre la langue de l'autre. L'idée de base est que chacun des élèves "enseigne" sa propre langue à son partenaire. On distingue deux formes d'apprentissage en tandem. 1) le tandem à distance ou tandem virtuel qui consiste à demander aux élèves de s'échanger des lettres, des e-mails et/ou divers autres documents (articles de journaux/revues, photos, cassettes vidéo/audio, CD, etc.) 2) le tandem physique qui permet aux élèves de se rencontrer physiquement dans un, voire dans les deux pays partenaires. L'originalité de l'apprentissage en tandem se situe avant tout dans la démarche de systématisation des échanges et dans la méthodologie préconisée pour amener les élèves partenaires à apprendre la langue étrangère de et avec l'autre.

During the three first months of the AQUATERRA project, the Group of Hydrogeology and Environmental Geology from the University of Liège (HGULg) has performed a general inventory of data sources and availability for the Walloon part of the Meuse basin in Belgium. This deliverable provides the information in the form of a summary table that gives a general description of data types, accessibility (public or confidential, free or charged…) and, if existing, a website with further useful information. In this synthesis, emphasis is put on hydrogeological information. However, general information on surface water is also provided when available. In the following months, needed data will be collected for the Meuse/Basin experimental sites in the Walloon region. Collected datasets will be introduced into the Hydrogeological Database HYGES developed by HGULg. This database is presently updated for the needs of the AQUATERRA Project. This synthesis will be further updated when new information and data sources are available. [less ▲]

The establishment of tools for trends analysis in groundwater is essential for the prediction and evaluation of measures taken within context of the Water Framework Directive and the draft Groundwater Directive. This report describes the spatial data sets which will be used for the purpose of detection, aggregation and extrapolation of temporal trends in groundwater quality. Trend analysis methods will be applied and tested at various scales and in various hydrogeological situations. The report contains a description of the studied sub-basins in TREND 2, including information on hydrogeology, land use and pressures, available data and projected additional measurements. Major differences between the sub-basins and the data sets are described to examine consequences for the work on trend detection. One of the challenges for TREND 2 is to define criteria for the application of various statistical and deterministic trend approaches for a range of hydrogeological conditions, spatial scales and types of groundwater monitoring. An overview of these conditions, scales and monitoring types is provided in the present report. [less ▲]

The project "Bases of a growth of intermodal transport in Belgium: the search of “missing links” "is a coherent whole of tasks carried out by two transport research centers, one working within the university of Liege (Ulg) and the other working within the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). The two research centers constituted a common team in order to work together on a certain number of topics concerning the transportation in general. This research project is based on various former research projects carried out by the two research centers. These previous researches led to the conclusion that the practitioners as well as the public decision-makers should concentrate on specific elements to stimulate a better growth of the intermodal transport in Belgium. The team has identified four elements which constitute real "missing links", not enough taken into account by the public policy and the administrators of the intermodal transport. These four elements are: 1. A tool to follow the prices of the intermodal transport 2. An analysis of the most critical value added services that should be supplied by the intermodal terminal operators 3. A series of directives to optimize the packaging of the goods to stimulate the intermodal transport 4. An instrument of follow-up of "modal scan" These elements are analysed and each of them constitute an entire module of this report. [less ▲]

The 4M-µpump project attempts to breach the gap between traditional mechanics and micro mechanics and this in two ways. The first one consists in producing a general set of rules suitable for the miniaturisation of well-known macromachines. The second one consists in developing this fundamental aspect of the research through the design and realization of an implantable pump dedicated to the administration of medication agents inside the human body. The project thus touches upon the field of design, manufacturing, metrology and assembly of mini components as well as the study of minimotors. [less ▲]

The 4M-µpump project attempts to breach the gap between traditional mechanics and micro mechanics and this in two ways. The first one consists in producing a general set of rules suitable for the miniaturisation of well-known macromachines. The second one consists in developing this fundamental aspect of the research through the design and realization of an implantable pump dedicated to the administration of medication agents inside the human body. The project thus touches upon the field of design, manufacturing, metrology and assembly of mini components as well as the study of minimotors. [less ▲]
