Impact direct impact on people does not necessarily require direct contact, for example, environmental health, trading standards and similar officers may have a direct impact on people, through the implementation or enforcement of regulations, without necessarily having direct contact with those who benefit.
Impact. Factors associated with the potential impact of a Subrecipient’s non-compliance to the overall success of the program objectives.
Impact. B 3.1 Strategic impact Over the last two decades, Europe has lost some ground in scientific issues, especially in the life sciences. By introducing a global networking component into this project, this will ensure that what will be developed in Europe will have an important global impact. Europe will serve as a model for other regions and thereby regain scientific credibility. Other regions and international institutions will be given new and improved implementation modules for their own development. To balance the need, on one hand, for Europe to become once again a leader in science and, on the other, to provide global solutions, thus sustaining the development and the use of biological resources, is one aim of this project. ▪ BBMRI will contribute to the technological development capacity in ERA by creating an infrastructure with a focus on research and development in sample and data management processes. In existing infrastructure components, such research and development has tended to take second place to the pursuit of investigations into the biological resources themselves, rather than into their management. As a result, improvements in basic laboratory processes (e.g. purification techniques) have tended not to be developed beyond proof of principle and data management systems have been developed with single locations in mind. The BBMRI Preparatory Phase will plan coordination between these infrastructure components and create a unique body of expertise with the capacity to make such improvements. ▪ BBMRI will contribute to the scientific excellence of Europe as a whole by providing o Investigators’ access to high quality biological resources and data for: o Participants in current and future EU framework programme Health projects. o Epidemiologists, clinicians, geneticists, pathologists and molecular biologists in national centres of excellence. o Pharmaceutical and biotech industry ▪ BBMRI will provide a competitive advantage and fruitful environment for development of service and technology providing companies in that BBMRI will act as R&D partner as well as customer ▪ The implementation and development of its “distributed hub structure” which is designed to allow the extension of the infrastructure by incorporating existing and new components that meet the criteria of excellence of BBMRI and that have physical locations in the convergence regions as well as the outermost regions thus providing a pan-European solution.
Impact. The impacts of the program will become clearer in future years. The implementation of research findings often lags project selection and completion. However, certain impacts are emerging. The benefits of the program are already being felt in many respects.
Impact. The response systems and infrastructure that states require to respond to public health emergencies would not exist in most instances without PHEP funding. According to CDC’s evaluations, PHEP awardees have improved capacity in nearly all high priority public health preparedness capabilities in the past few years. The largest investments focused on public health surveillance and epidemiological investigation, laboratory testing, community preparedness, information sharing, and emergency operations coordination. In order to help awardees address gaps, CDC works with the jurisdiction on technical assistance plans, including consultation across CDC. In 2018, CDC updated its National Standards for State, Local, Tribal and Territorial Public Health, focused on aligning with new national standards, updating science and current public health priorities and strategies. Federal funding is crucial to maintaining state, local and territorial public health preparedness capacity. Every fluctuation in funding – such as the 2016 redirection of $44 million from PHEP for the federal Xxxx response – has major impacts on workforce, training, and readiness.1 These cuts cannot be backfilled with short-term funding after an event. An efficient and effective state and local workforce response in particular relies heavily on predictable, ongoing funding support for a network of local expertise, relationships and trust that is carefully built over time through shared responses, training and exercises. 1 xxxxx://xxx.xxxxxx.xxx/uploads/downloadable-resources/Impact-of-the-Redirection-of-PHEP-Funding-to-Support-Xxxx- Response.pdf Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2017 Some examples of recent accomplishments of the PHEP program include: • Hepatitis A Outbreaks: Several states experienced hepatitis A outbreaks in 2018, often among people experiencing homelessness or substance misuse.2 In Michigan, PHEP-funded health department staff worked with state and local communicable disease and immunization program staff to decrease the time to report new cases, interview those affected, and provide information to the public. Thanks to coordination made possible through PHEP, as of December 2018 Michigan has administered 300,000 doses of hepatitis A vaccine in outbreak jurisdictions, and new cases have declined each month since December 2017. • Wildfires: In 2017’s California wildfires in wine country, local public health used its PHEP- supported capabilities to develop an almo...
Impact. In addition to the per-hour wage rate, the Employer shall contribute three- quarters of one percent (¾ of 1%) of the applicable hourly journeyman wage rate for each hour worked to Ironworkers Management Progressive Action Cooperative Trust (IMPACT), a jointly-trusted cooperative trust with federal tax-exempt status under Section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code as an exempt organization under Section 501(c)(5) of the Internal Revenue Code. Tax-exempt status determination was rendered under the initial name of the trust, which was the Employers Responsive Educational Cooperation Trust of North America. The general purposes of the trust include the improvement and development of the union ironworking industry through education, training, communication, cooperation, and governmental lobbying and legislative initiatives. The reporting, payment, frequency of payment, and administration of such contributions shall be governed by the terms of the IMPACT trust agreement, policies, and resolutions.
Impact. [Optional/Mandatory] What is the impact of the project? How has it contributed? Over the years, this base of knowledge, techniques, people, and infrastructure is drawn upon again and again for application to commercial technology and the economy, to health and safety, to cost-efficient environmental protection, to the solution of social problems, to numerous other aspects of the public welfare, and to other fields of endeavor. The taxpaying public and its representatives deserve a periodic assessment to show them how the investments they make benefit the nation. Through this reporting format, and especially this section, recipients provide that assessment and make the case for Federal funding of research and education. Agencies use this information to assess how their research programs: • increase the body of knowledge and techniques; • enlarge the pool of people trained to develop that knowledge and techniques or put it to use; and • improve the physical, institutional, and information resources that enable those people to get their training and perform their functions.
Impact. How performance can affect achieving organizational objectives. Both the breadth and intensity of impact and special responsibility and accountability are considered. Using these factors, each position is compared to at least three other college positions in order to determine the jobs value relative to other jobs in the college. Of the three jobs used for comparisons, one position should be a benchmark job. (The benchmark job is typical in a class of position titles in terms of job duties and responsibilities.
Impact. The current technological situation for the ES solutions in the area of security, privacy and dependability are ad-hoc designed, implemented and deployed for each specific system pursuing sub-optimized performances and incompatibility at an higher costs while the growing number and quality of treats are emphasizing new challenges towards secure, dependable ES that will be operative in the augmented complexity scenarios of the future. Lack in well defined SPD metrics constitutes, furthermore, big obstacles for a fast-validation and certification of the proposed technical solutions. Standing this situation, the ES market urgently needs an holistic built-in approach for a fast, flexible and standardized development of SPD solutions taking advantages from reusing previously validated results, adopting reference parameters to evaluate the product and deployed after standard and easier certification procedures. By proposing to realize embedded SPD via standardized design methods mainly based on a frameworks of composable technologies to be settled on the specific industrial solution, a set of on new SPD metrics allowing fast, standard validations and certification as well as methods and mechanism to easily design and keep SPD level compliant for all the system’s lifetime, the SHIELD project aims to drastically improve SPD quality of ES addressing the above mentioned industrial requirements. Due to heterogeneity and wideness of the overall embedded systems market is a very hard task to express the market dimension but it is easy to imagine how relevant and huge the market of SPD ES could be: following in this chapter, some examples, mainly related to the four application scenarios proposed in SHIELD, will be highlighted in order to show the overall market potential of the SHIELD solutions and to figure out the expected impacts in the pilot scenarios. To obtain these valuable goals the project will completely fit in ARTEMISIA Subprogram Six as well as in the overall ARTEMISIA Target, as explained in the following subparagraphs.
