Share

This final statement from Le Cercle des économistes is a call to reason, to greater lucidity and to action in the face of the great disruptions of our time. We see a generalized loss of trust, which we believe can only be re-established through actions in five major fields.

1. To recreate social cohesion and bring territories back together

- We ask that the government organize a conference on the subject of employment opportunities in the future, with all social partners and political parties present;

- Encourage all levels of governance to regularly call on citizen conventions, for which participation should be mandatory and partly determined by a random draw;

- We ask that regions become the architects of major plans for education and training, which they will finance through the transfer of production taxes to their competencies;

2. To reclaim our lives

- Establish, protect and respect independent institutions whose mission is to inform the general public and create a permanent body for fact checking. We also ask that the Banque Publique d’Investissements create a fund dedicated to startups in the field of fact checking;

- Start a debate in Europe on the refusal of any form of a monopoly in the treatment, stocking and sharing of data, leading to a possible dismantlement of large technology firms;

3. To create a project-based Europe

- Create a Franco-German agency for cooperation on projects for breakthrough technologies;

- Modernize European commercial policy by centering it on competitive issues and by working towards a ‘climate club’ which could establish incentivizing taxation measures at its borders. We also ask that the EU/MERCOSUR agreement not be put into provisional application;

4. To rekindle new forms of international cooperation

- Launch a Geneva Congress, on the subject of new approaches to international cooperation;

5. To ensure security in tomorrow’s world

- Finance the ecological transition either through a great loan financed and guaranteed by the European Union, or by taking advantage of the low and potentially decreasing interest rates on debt;

- Prioritize the treatment of ocean waste on a global scale at the upcoming COP25;

- Form a partnership between Europe and Africa with the objective of increasing access to water and electricity threefold in Africa in the coming 15 years;

- Establish an international conference on cybersecurity, which clearly defines what can be considered a critical digital infrastructure and forbids any attack on them.

Panasonic Develops High-Power Blue WBC Technology to Revolutionize DDL Applications on Microfabrication29.1.2020 09:11:00 EETPress release

On January 29, 2020, Panasonic Corporation announced it has succeeded in demonstrating the world's highest brightness blue laser. This has been achieved by using the wavelength beam combining (WBC) technology [1] on a direct diode laser (DDL) to produce a high quality output beam [2]. With this technology, power scaling is enabled while maintaining the beam quality by simply increasing the number of laser sources. This demonstration opens the door to laser intensities that could be two orders of magnitude higher than conventional blue laser systems. This technology will contribute to the emerging microfabrication processes, whose demand is expected to grow in industrial applications, such as in the automotive industry.
