The objective of JAMIE is to have by the end of 2013 in the majority of MSs a common hospital based surveillance injury system in operation enabling EC and MSs to monitor injury risks. JAMIE will:
- refine the current methodology for collecting hospital based injury data with a view to allow data collection also in less resourced settings and to ensure that the quality of data will meet the EuroStat-quality requirements; and
- incorporate in 26 out of the eligible countries (EU31) into the European IDB monitoring system and into the IDB-exchange mechanism.

The Joint Action will make available national capacities and resources for applying a pro-active approach to Member States, by offering assistance: such as standardized trainings for national data administrators, twinning programmes, on-site consultations and country specific coaching for countries which still have to start or restart a system, continuous supervision, and joint monitoring actions levels of implementation in each MS.

As general objectives, the DOVE project aims to collect, describe, compare and analyze documents on policies and practices directly addressing domestic violence that are being implemented throughout the involved states. Simultaneously, DOVE will describe the domestic violence experiences of women and men aged 18-64 years living in urban centres of 8 European Member States, regarding its magnitude, characteristics, determinants and its consequences in terms of health and quality of life.
Overall, the project contribution focuses on the development of evidence-based policies, research and practice strategies to early detection and prevention of DV against women and men, as well as existing practices of support, care and rehabilitation of victimized women and men and management of perpetration.

The specific objectives of InjuryConf-2011 are to:

1. offer a forum for the exchange of experiences in implementing and in monitoring the impact of national strategies and actions amongst MS�s and for benchmarking policies and their outcomes;
2. highlight successful safety promotion initiatives and actions as evidenced through the various European collaborative projects, to encourage the uptake of good practices and to facilitate their implementation in particular in New Member States;
3. highlight opportunities and challenges to mainstream injury prevention and safety promotion into relevant policy domains; and to
4. enhance the involvement of relevant stakeholders within countries (i.e. government, NGO`s, academia and private sector) and to foster sustainable and collaborative commitments as to actions for injury prevention and safety promotion in MS�s.

Special attention will be given to EU-collaborative actions and programmes that have been initiated in the framework of the health programme. These actions relate to the priorities as identified in the 2007-Council Recommendation.

All priority issues will be profiled during the conference, with special emphasize on:
- the development of proper injury surveillance and monitoring infrastructures in MSs; and
- stimulating evidence-based action to address injury prevention priorities at national, regional and municipal levels in the EU, through co-ordinated processes of assessing and benchmarking progress in safety programmes in countries.

The conference will build upon international evidence presented at the Safety 2010 World Conference in London and profile models of European and national adaptation and implementation of the international evidence base.
