In Berlin, the "Round Table Berlin - Health Care for Domestic and Sexual Violence" began its work at the Senate for Health, Care and Equality. The office of the Berlin Round Table is located at S.I.G.N.A.L. e.V. The Berlin police also took part and presented the IMPRODOVA project.
This week, and with an article covering 9 pages of case stories, interviews and data, the influential German news magazine DER SPIEGEL has tackled the societal problem of domestic violence which is traditionally underreported, both as a crime and as an issue of public concern. Cost calculations, according to EIGE numbers amount as high as 17 billion for Germany and 109 billion for the EU.
Finally, yesterday we received an official statement from University of Glasgow (UoG) expressed their interest in joining the consortium as a new partner replacing University of Edinburgh. As contribution and research in Scotland are vital for IMPRODOVA, we are happy to welcoming University of Glasgow as a new partner. We have communicated with our EC Project Officer requesting an amendment to include University of Glasgow.
