Summary of Injury ICE European Union Group Discussions

April 2-3, 2001
Submitted by David Stone

 

Aim

To provide a forum for promoting discussion between ICE and EU in areas of mutual interest

 

Objectives

  • To identify and finalize areas of mutual interest to both ICE and EU
  • To develop a framework for discussion and collaboration
  • To propose an outline plan of action

 

Agenda

  • Review of relevant ICE activities
  • Review of relevant EU activities
  • ICE/EU collaboration - What’s next?

 

Discussion

Took place on the two days of the ICE meeting.

 

Outcome

The group nevertheless felt that it was important to try to develop a framework for collaboration regardless of the impending organizational changes.

Accordingly, a tentative action plan was proposed subject to communications within the respective institutions.

 

Outline Action Plan

The group proposes two sets of actions:

  1. ICE should link to the EC along the following lines:
    1. Principles of collaboration between ICE and EU
      1. ICE and EU share a large common agenda on injury data;
      2. The pursuit of continued communication between ICE at the EU is both feasible and desirable.
    2. Specific measures to facilitate collaboration:
      1. EC/EUROSTAT representative(s) should be invited to attend relevant ICE meetings as a matter of course;
      2. ICE representative(s) should be invited to attend relevant EC/EUROSTAT meetings as a matter of course.
  2. ICE should, in addition:
    1. Seek to recruit new participants to the injury ICE from EU countries not previously represented.
    2. Review progress towards enhanced collaboration with the EU/Euostat on a regular basis

 

The above proposals, if implemented, will require further clarification of:
