EUROCLIMA+ is a regional programme for Latin America that contributes to the fight against climate change and alleviating its problems and consequences. The programme is financed by the European Union and partly managed by FIIAPP. One of the topics being studied is precisely that of meteorology, due to its relationship with climate change.
Patenting any invention is very important, since, for many products, having it patented makes it possible to control counterfeits. FIIAPP is managing this European Union-funded Twinning project between Spain and Egypt to help them improve their Patent and Trademark office. The Spanish coordinator and the Egyptian coordinator tell us about the project.
The network is not always a crime free space. Since the internet became popular, cybercrime has steadily increased. Faced with this situation, in this week's programme we interviewed the chief inspector of the National Police, Diego Alejandro Palomino, to talk about the work the police undertake on the internet: cyber patrols.
This week we are joined by collaborators in the renewable energy project in Cuba, which receives funds from the European Union and in which the FIIAPP is a participant. They will help us delve into the meaning of energy efficiency and how we can help reduce energy consumption, produce less pollution and mitigate climate change.
As part of its work to improve public systems, FIIAPP forges alliances with other institutions. This week we will learn about the work of the General Secretariat of Prisons and the cooperation projects, managed by FIIAPP and funded by the European Union, with which it collaborates. Among these are the twinning project entitled Improved management of terrorists and dangerous criminals in Turkish prisons, and the EU-ACT project to take action against drugs and organised crime.
