Remarks

This appropriation is intended to cover expenditure arising in connection with measures for the management and development of
Solvit and for the imp lementation of the single market assistance services action plan.
The Solvit system has proved to be one of the most effective out-of-court dispute settlement mechanisms.
It can effectively and efficiently deal with problems faced by citizens or businesses, arising as a result of the misapplicat ion of internal
market legislat ion by a public ad ministration in another Member State. Furthermore, the Solvit system is able to produce feedback
informat ion by using an online database system which is accessible to all coord ination centres and to which cit izens and business can
directly submit their problems.
However, Solv it like many other public assistance services relating to EU issues is still not widely known among potential users of the
system. At the same time cit izens and businesses are often very confused about the right address for their requests for info rmat ion,
assistance or problem solving. To remedy this, the Co mmission has announced, as part of the single market review, that it will
endeavour to create a single web-based access point guiding citizens and business to the right service. This single acce ss point should
be implemented by the end of 2010. The European Co mmission shall inform the co mpetent committee of the Eu ropean Parliament in
a yearly report about the frequency of use of the contact point and possible measures to further improve it.
Member States should be urged to take appropriate measures to notify their citizens about the provision of such a single contact p oint.
Moreover, in its May 2008 action plan on Single Market Assistance Services a range of actions was proposed to increase cooperation
between the existing assistance services so that they can offer a better, faster and more streamlined overall service to citi zens and
businesses.
Pro motion of all these services also needs to take place in a mo re coordinated way to avoid citizens an d businesses being confused by
too many brand names.
Additionally, the Co mmission shall inform the competent committee of the European Parliament about the concrete measures whic h
have been undertaken in this field.

Remarks

New article
The Single Market Foru m should be an annual event in the Member State holding the EU Presidency bringing together representatives
of citizens, businesses and consumer organisations as well as representatives of the Member States and the EU institutions in order to
establish a clear commit ment to the transposition, application and enforcement of single market legislat ion. The aim of this
event should be to tackle incorrect transposition, misapplication and non-enforcement of single market legislation by improving
coordination and better governance of the single market. The event should become an important platform for exchanging best
practices between stakeholders and for informing cit izens of their rights in the single market. In part icular, the top 20 concerns
challenges and opportunities for cit izens and businesses identified by the Co mmission, should be taken into consideration at the event.
A working group should be created, to be composed of Members of the European Parliament and representatives of the Commission
and the EU Presidency-in-Office, which should work out the organisational arrangements for the Single Market Foru m.

This appropriation is intended to finance the preparatory, monitoring, ad min istrative and technical support, evaluation, audit and
inspection measures necessary for imp lementing Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006, as provided for in Article 45 of the latter
Regulation. In particular, it may be used to meet :
support expenditure (representation expenses, training, meet ings, missions),
informat ion and publishing expenditure,
expenditure on informat ion technology and telecommunications,
contract for the provision of services and studies,
grants.
This appropriation is also intended to finance a one stop shop to help applicants for renovation of buildings aimed at becoming
positive energy or passive buildings in the framework o f the direct ive on energy performance of buildings.
This appropriation is also intended to fund measures taken by partners in preparation for the next programming period.
In order to provide help and support for local actors in the EU involved in running SF and Cohesion Fund programmes - especially in
the new Member States -, the EC should propose a training and mobility scheme which would allow them to strengthen their skills in
running programmes and exchange best practices and ideas on the problems they encounter on a regular basis. This would imp rove
overall governance and institutional capacity building for the management of programmes and territorial policies.
The lack of efficient the spot training of local authority and local staff responsible for management of EU funds is a majo r cause of
procedural error, poor control and low absorption rates. Establishing a network of trainers to work locally will increase and cost
effectiveness the efficiency of the policy.

Remarks

The aim o f the pilot project is to produce a complex analysis based on current understanding of the Roma co mmun ity’s situation in
the European Union, emphasising the entire comp lex and synergetic spectrum of education and training, beginning with pre -school
children, through the further education of young mothers up to training for o lder people.
The pilot project should also reflect the proper preparat ion and implementation of the institutional process in terms of cons ultations,
networking, data collection, evaluation, field v isits, research, etc. A number o f Member States have taken measures to promote Ro ma
integration. Examp les both of good and of bad practice are numerous, alongside a growing corpus of sociological, legal and po licy-
oriented research.
A Ro ma Unit could be set up to exp lore, fro m an EU policy imp lementation point of view, sectoral issues and propose appropriate
actions and measures to be included in the proposals for a Ro ma Inclusion Action Plan.
It could also take on the task of examining cross -sector cooperation and us e of the existing different financial instruments, proposing
pilot projects and detecting transferable and sustainable good practice which can then contribute to producing concrete polic y
proposals.
In this context, reference can be made to the need for long-term proposals on the housing and urban development aspects (lin ked to
issues of segregation, ghettoisation, etc., when badly prepared) in connection with innovative use of regional funds and EIB/ EBRD
support, or the huge issue of data collection (and protection), statistics, etc., but also the obviously related issues of combating crime
and trafficking, as well as basic registration problems.
Particular attention has to be given to the issue of media coverage and communication in general.
As an essential prerequisite for success, a process of structured dialogue with Ro ma civil society has to be developed at local, n ational
and EU level.
The European Parliament has been a pioneer in pro moting Ro ma rights; its first resolution on the issue goes back to 1984. During the
previous term, the European Parliament has adopted a number of resolutions on the specific situation of Ro ma in Europe. In
particular, in its resolution of 31 January 2008 on a European strategy on the Roma, the European Parliament urged ‘t he Co mmission
to develop a European Framework Strategy on Ro ma Inclusion aimed at prov iding policy coherence at EU level as regards the soc ial
inclusion of Ro ma and urges the Commission at the same time to comprehensively shape a Co mmunity Action Plan on Ro ma
Inclusion with the task of providing financial support for realising the objective of the European Framework Strategy on Ro ma
Inclusion’. Also, in its resolution of 10 Ju ly 2008 on the census of the Roma on the basis of ethnicity in Italy, the Europea n Parliament
reiterated those requests and again called on the Co mmission and the Member States, within the framewo rk of an EU Ro ma Strate gy
and in the context of the Decade of Ro ma Inclusion 2005 -2015, to enact legislation and policies to support Ro ma co mmunit ies while
promoting their integration in all fields, to launch anti-racism and anti-d iscrimination programmes in schools, employ ment and the
med ia and to enhance the exchange of expertise and best practices.
The European Parliament reiterates in this context the importance of developing strategies at EU and national level, making full use of
the opportunities provided by EU funds, to abolish Ro ma segregation in education, to ensure equal access to quality education for
Ro ma children (participation in ma instream education, introduction of special scholarship and trainee programmes, addit ional and
concrete measures to promote pre-school education for Ro ma children and postgraduate studies at national and international level fo r
Ro ma students as well as educating an effective group of ‘Ro ma dip lo mats’ able to bridge the gap between Roma co mmun ities and

The European Parliament reaffirms the need to set up a network of academic and civ il experts with a clear mand ate to propose
specific pilot projects and elaborate projects triggering immediate changes.
The aim o f the pilot project is also to ensure the integrated education of Roma families, focusing simultaneously on the early
integration of children in pre -school education, the training of parents and the conducting of community activit ies for the whole

Remarks

The objective of this pilot pro ject is to provide help and support for local and regional councils in the European Union.
The first principle of the pilot project is to encourage and support the mobility of both elected local and regional represen tatives
within the European Un ion. The second principle of the pilot project is that the mobility element is included in an agreed programme
of on-the-spot training and sharing of experience with focus on ‘economic and social cohesion’.
Goals are:
to encourage multilateral cooperation between territorial and local and reg ional inst itutions on a political level,
to support the mobility of elected local and regional representatives,
to stimu late common research and exchange of ideas on the problems they encounter on a regular basis by means of on -the-spot
training and the sharing of e xperience,
to promote the exchange of best practices.
The pilot project is thus a tool to enhance the learning and experience of elected local and reg ional representatives; and to increase
the capacity of local and regional councils in regard to the application of concepts, democratic principles and strategies.

Remarks

This project aims to develop a comp rehensive strategy that would promote knowledge of, and experience fro m, EU reg ional polic y for
third countries. This strategy should include the organisation of international events, informat ion activities, network build ing between
regional and local stakeholders, development of joint projects and new regional partnerships, as well as the exchange of good
practices between regions. By pro moting the EU cohesion policy model as a success story through a number of reg ional dialogue s, the
EU will use these actions to exemplify and advance its values, fundamental principles, organisational structures and policies on a
global scale. Cooperation with international organisations active in this field (FOGAR, UCLG) will prove to be particularly b eneficial
to that end.

Remarks

The Council has on several occasions (in 2000 and in March 2003) acknowledged the advantages of micro-finance for small firms.
The European Council has, for the first time, asked Member States to pay particular attention to using micro -cred it to foster the
establishment and growth of small firms. Micro-cred it was one of the focuses of the European multiannual programme (MAP/2002 to
2006) financial instruments which the Council adopted in December 2001, defining ‘micro -loan’ as a loan of less than EUR 25 000.
The Co mpetitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP), which has been in operation since 2006, also deals with micro-credit,
including under the second facility (SM E Guarantee Facility). Th is facility, wh ich is ad min istered by the European Investmen t Fund
(EIF), seeks to encourage financial institutions to play a more importan t role in offering small loans, which normally carry with them
proportionally high loan management costs for borrowers unable to provide adequate security. In addition to guarantees and co unter-
guarantees, financial intermed iaries are entitled to subsidies to reduce the high admin istrative costs associated with micro-loans.
The aim o f this preparatory action is to foster the development of micro -credit in Europe, in line with the new Lisbon Agenda growth
and employ ment targets and the recommendations set ou t in the European Parliament resolution of 11 Ju ly 2007 on financial services
policy (2005 to 2010) — White Paper, with particu lar reference to the need for a micro-cred it action plan.
The purpose of the preparatory action is to:
ensure that the micro-cred it business in Europe beco mes self-financing in the mediu m term by building up the equity of micro -finance
institutions, particularly non-banking institutions. The project could be admin istered by the EIF, the EU financial institution which
specialises in SM E and micro-enterprise funding and which also administers the EU/ Co mmunity financial instruments,
 foster greater synergy between existing financial instruments covering inter-related areas (CIP, Jo int European Resources for Micro
to Medium Enterprises (Jeremie), ERDF, EDF),
foster social inclusion through entrepreneurship and the economic gro wth it brings. Associations working with less -favoured groups
may be recip ients of the funding made availab le.
The purpose of the appropriation is to cover the implementation of the preparatory action adopted for 2008; it will be used, in
particular, to develop a seed fund for non-banking institutions.

Starting date of the project: 01.01.2011
End date of the project: 31. 12. 2013
The European Council of 19 June 2009 has formally asked the European Co mmission to present an EU Strategy for the Danube
Region before the end of 2010. The Strategy, wh ich will be launched under the Hungarian Presidency of the European Union, at the
beginning of 2011, will be accompanied by an Action Plan, wh ich will be permanently developed and actualised taking into account
the proposal fro m the Member States. The Article 3 of the Lisbon Treaty improves the EU's ability to pro mote economic, social and
territorial cohesion, and solidarity among Member States. This preparatory action is needed in order to develop the necessary capacity
building and to speed up the coordination process to ensure the right governance model for the imp lementation of the EU Strat egy for
the Danube Region.
The Danube Region has an established history of networking and co -operation in many policy areas. The strategy and its Action Plan
will offer the opportunity to move fro m words to action and to deliver real benefits for the region as a whole. There is a ne ed for a
common strategic vision to guide future territorial develop ment for t he Danube Region. It is clear that no one acting alone can apply
the range of measures necessary to confront the challenges and explo it the opportunities of the region. A strategy for the Da nube
Region, consisting of detailed and consistent actions, with an appropriate financial support are essential to develop the Danube Region
and to fully exp loit the opportunities open to the region.
The Danube lin ks ten European countries – Germany, Austria, the Slovak Republic, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Ro mania, Bu lga ria, the
Republic o f Moldova and Ukraine – six of wh ich are EU Member States, and in a broader territorial context the reg ion also comprises
the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Bosnia Herzegovina and Montenegro.

The Danube region is an important crossover point between the EU's Cohesion Policy programmes, programmes for countries
covered by the European Neighbourhood Policy and potential candidates for accession, and therefore represents an area where
enhanced synergies between different EU policies can be develo ped: cohesion, transport, tourism, agricu lture, fisheries, economic and
social development, energy, environ ment, enlargement and neighbourhood policy and the EU St rategy for the Danube Region is to be
developed in the following cooperation areas: social development and protection, sustainable economic develop ment, transport and
energy infrastructure, environmental protection, culture and education.
The EU Strategy for the Danube Reg ion should be implemented by making use of all available funding resources, fro m the European
Union, its Member States and other riparian countries, International Financial Institutions (IFI), as well as private capital . The focus
should be on improved, more efficient and effective ways to coordinate the different funding instrume nts and the proposed specific
actions. We expect that the EU Danube strategy, through a better cooperation between Member States and Danube riparian countr ies,
to boost the social and economic development of the region. This will create new business opport unities, will accelerate the
development of sustainable, more efficient and intermodal transport system as well as a sustainable transport and tourism and will
improve the quality of life of all cit izens living in the Danube river basin with full respect o f the environment.
The preparatory action thus shall pro mote/create a governance model to be imp lemented in the specific areas concerning the Da nube
Region.
The funding is intended to finance activities related to the definit ion of the governance model req uired by the development and
implementation of the EU Danube Region strategy. The governance model will imp rove the cooperation between all participant
countries and regions to common flagship projects in the field of:
environmentally friendly use of the Danube by inland navigation, intermodality with other transport modes along the Danube through
the improvement of all infrastructures (with priority for the better use of existing infrastructure) and by creating a multi -modal
transport system all along the river, environmentally-friendly use of water power along the Danube, preservation and improvement of
Danube water quality in accordance with the Water Framewo rk Direct ive, stringent vessel safety requirements,
sustainable tourism: ecotouris m, the develop ment of the cycle routes along almost the entire Danube, development of the conventional
mass cultural touris m, urban and rural tourism, business and cruise tourism, sports tourism;
joint projects (to promote and implement) in order to increase cooperation in the field of energy, especially on energy efficien cy and
renewable energy resources, in the light of the region's potential as a source of bioenergy, and to encourage the use of biomass, solar,
wind and hydro energy,
to promote research infrastructure tailored to the specific strengths of the regions and of specific clusters of excellence for product
innovation and market ing,
a common research and development program in the/for the Danube Reg ion and which is aimed to support scientific develop ment a nd
innovation by ensuring cooperation between Danube states in fields of environmental research, fisheries, agriculture, in frastruc ture
(including energy field), t ransport, training and mobility for researchers and socio -economic aspects,
university exchange programmes within the region and universities networks in order to foster centres of excellence capable of
competing at international level and to strengthen the Danube identity through training and improving governance, life long learning,
to ensure security of the region.
The EU Strategy for the Danube Reg ion - Not just a strategy
There must be actions – concrete, visible actions – to overcome the challenges facing the region. In its action plan, the Co mmission
should insist that Member States and other stakeholders take responsibility as lead partners for specific priority areas and flagship
projects, for examp le, by developing a specific and integrated governance in line with a co mmon and integrated approach to th e EU
Danube strategy which will be adopted by the European Co mmission by the end of 2010.
The Co mmission will fu lfil the need for an independent, mu lti-sector body/approach that can guarantee the necessary co-ordination,
monitoring and follow-up of the action plan, as well as a regular updating of the plan and strategy as necessary. The Co mmission is
not proposing additional funding or other resources at this time. However, some o f the specific act ions and projects will req uire
financial support. A major source is the Structural Funds available in t he reg ion – most programmes already allo w actions envisaged
in the strategy. Programming authorities can review the allocation criteria and facilitate the selection of projects aligned with the
strategy. In addition, Member States will examine funding projects and actions aligned with the Strategy priorities fro m their own
resources. The European Investment Bank and other international and regional financial institutions could also contribute.
Enhanced efforts through the action plan should be carried out in close coordination with any such ongoing developments (in
particular new regulat ions), including at EU level, to ensure coherence and efficiency.
The on-going economic crisis imp lies a less -favourable climate for investment, affect ing both public sectors and private business
generally. Th is makes it all the more essential that the EU Strategy for the Danube Region allo ws the partners in the region to take a

longer perspective, recognizing that when this crisis has passed the regions that have best prepared will be those best equipped to take
advantage of the new opportunities and innovations.
The European Parliament has the right to propose Preparatory actions and Pilot pro jects. The actual proposal for Preparatory A ction is
to have a duration of 3 years, fro m January 2011 to December 2013 and the amount to be allocated is 1 500 000 EURO per year.
The above projects will require time-intensive preparations with the Member States concerned and with concerned authorities of the
third countries. First disburs ements will first take place in 2011.
Based upon the existing legal framework, this proposal fulfils the objectives of the Amendment, p resenting solutions for the
sustainable cooperation between EU Member States and other riparian countries. It substantia tes the development of the EU Strategy
for the Danube Reg ion and its integration into the overall policy of the EU. As extensive negotiations with third part ies wil l have to
precede the Financing Decision, the Budget Authority is requested to lift the rese rve so that the corresponding commit ment
appropriations will be availab le on the operational budget line in due time.

Remarks

In accordance with the decision for an integrated programme in the field of lifelong learning, this appropriation is intended to cover
the following specific programmes and horizontal actions:
Co menius: for general education activities concerning schools up to and including upper-secondary level,
Erasmus: for education and advanced training activities at higher education level, increase in the number of scholarships and funding
for them under the Erasmus programmes,
Leonardo da Vinci: fo r all aspects of vocational education and training,
Grundtvig: for adult education,
a cross-cutting programme: incorporating four key activ ities to cover policy issues, to make specific p rovision for language learning
and ICT-related activity where these fall outside the specific programmes, and to provide a better dissemination service.
    Special education needs for persons suffering fro m disabilities or ‘dys’ conditions can be addressed in all the abovementioned
    sectoral programmes,
Jean Monnet: to support European institutions and associations active in the field of European integration as well as the est ablishment
of a board to manage the multiannual funding by EU of a European Parliament professorship, the ‘EP-Geremek European Civ ilization
Chair’ established at the College of Europe in Warsaw in honour of Professor Bronisław Geremek. All activit ies and funding, w hich
could also include the granting of an annual award, will be jo intly managed by the College of Europe in Warsaw with full cooperation
with the Geremek foundation (‘Centru m Imienia Profesora Bronisława Geremka’). Part of the appropriations, in full respect of the
distribution of allocations foreseen in the legal basis, should support the Academy of European Law (ERA) develop ment strategy
aiming at the expansion of conference activities and the necessary increase in staff numbers.
This appropriation is also intended to finance a Leonardo Mobility System network. The creation of th is network will allo w those
organisations active in a given field, such as trade unions, commercial chambers, students or youth associations to work toge ther in
order to help the candidates applying for the Leonardo da Vinci Programme to find a co mpany/ enterprise where they can do the
traineeship.
The purpose of this system is three-fold :
First of all, to facilitate the candidate's search for a company, where s/he could do a traineeship according to his/her prof ile.
Secondly, we should make sure that companies/enterprises are informed about its existence to prevent the rejection of an application
due to a company's ignorance of the Programme.
Finally, this system should also aim at promoting the Leonardo da Vinci p rogramme itself. Th is promotion is especially necessary if
we take into account that the candidates applying for this grant outnumber the enterprises available.
These actions and programmes should strive to strengthen intercultural dialogue.
The integrated programme and its actions should compris e measures to promote language learning at all educational and vocational
training levels, for learners (general education, vocational train ing and continuous training) as well as for teachers and tr ainers.

The integrated programme should include measures to promote civ ic education (teaching and learning) on European Democratic
Citizenship including studies of Europe and the European Union in the European member states' secondary schools. Particular
attention should be given to encourage the multilateral School Partnership in this field
The programme should support bilateral cooperation projects aiming at the teaching of neighbouring countries' languages on bo th
sides of the border. Pro jects will be geared in particular towards young people and schools. The programme will also provide for the
creation of an appropriate internet platform, accessible to all interested persons, that facilitates this development through a help desk
providing self-study aids, an overview on cooperation possibilit ies and best-practice exchange.
These measures should also consist of initiat ives intended to safeguard, foster and strengthen lesser-used languages, such as the
languages of smaller Member States, enabling them to sustain and increase their vitality, especially in the lite rary, journalistic and
broadcasting fields, wh ich are the prime source of linguistic innovation, as well as of conservation, thus putting into great er practice
the European Union’s philosophy of language diversity, multilingualis m and subsidiarity.
The suggested increase of this appropriation is intended to cover inter alia supplementary expenditures relat ing to the activities o f the
European University Institute (EUI) in accordance with Article 36.2.b of the Decision Nu m 1720/ 2006 CE establishing the Lifelong
Learn ing Programme. A co mp lementary contribution should be allocated to the Global Governance Programme. Th is increase will
improve and broaden the PhD train ing with respect to global governance and world affairs at the EUI; set up a European Academy of
Global Governance devoted to top level training, d iscussion and debates; create a community of up to 10 new junio r fellows
specialised in these areas; attract at the EUI an important number of senior scholars drawn fro m the faculty of other member states
universities and research centres, and international institutions; develop different strands of basic and applied research on issues of
global governance that may, in t ime, constitute independent units of research; promote and support a variety of events, conferences
and seminars on issues of global governance; create a European network of Global Governance.
This is the extension of an Action already covered in the Budget 2010.

The New Enhanced European Neighborhood Policy, as projected by the Council and the European Parliament in their respective
decisions and resolutions, especially in the light of the two major neighborhood political projects, the Union for the Mediterran ean
and the Eastern Partnership, necessitates preparing future European and neighboring countries interlocutors, i.e. personnel f or EU-
ENP-related jobs. They should be fully and profes sionally acquainted with the substance and spirit of EU policies, law and institutions
and the acquis communautaire. That necessitates a focused and sophisticated offer, wh ich can be delivered only by a h ighly
recognized academic institution already specializing in this field that is the College of Europe. The two campuses of the Colleg e of
Europe – one in Bruges, Belg iu m, close to the Brussels institutions and expertise, the other in Natolin/Warsaw, Poland, specializing in
non-Commun ity neighborhood and border policies (the Frontex agency being based in Warsaw) – are best-placed to offer tailor-made
programs.

Remarks

On 11 July 2007, the Co mmission adopted the White Paper on Sport (COM (2007) 391), which is the first comprehensive Co mmission
policy document in this area. The White Paper creates a policy framework for sport at EU level, defines its specific ro le and values,
and identifies problems and challenges. In the conclusion, the White Paper states that ‘the Co mmission may return to this issue and
indicate further steps in the context of a new Treaty provision’. The White Paper thus paved the way towards the implementation of
the provisions on sport in the Treaty of Lisbon (Article 165 of the Treaty on the Funct ioning of the European Un ion).
The objective of the preparatory action in the field of sport for 2009 and for 2010 was to prepare future EU actions in the f ield of sport
with a v iew to imp lementation of the Treaty of Lisbon on the basis of priorities set in the White Paper on Sport.
This objective should be also pursued in 2011 with the proposed preparatory action which will contribute to identifying futur e p olicy
actions in the area of sport which can serve as a basis for a future EU programme. Th is should ultimately p rovide an EU added value
through the identification and dissemination of best practices and innovative approaches and through the development of comp a rative
research. In view of the specific organisational characteristics of the sport sector, the Programme would address categories of
stakeholders who are not addressed by existing EU programmes, and in part icular sport organisations. It should create a crit ical mass
by grouping together sport-related organisations and projects around specific themes (e.g. the pro motion of social inclusion in and
through sport, good governance in sport, actions against violence and racism, and aspects of health -enhancing physical activity which
were not covered in 2009). It should also cover projects aiming at dev eloping the European dimension in sport by increasing the
competitive level of European sport disciplines (e.g. by pro moting the exchange of know-how and by providing support to trans -
border joint sport competitions and championships between neighbouring regions and member states).
Part of the appropriations should go to the support of a Eu ropean wide network pro moting ‘education through football’ co mpose d of
European schools and local organisations, set up by streetfootballworld, with a v iew of establishin g the EUROSCHOOLS 2012
project which aims to make a tangible and lasting contribution to the understanding of other cultures and social learn ing thr ough sport
addressing issues like Fair Play, intercultural dialogue, anti-discrimination and respect.

Former Article 08 11 01
Europe needs to become mo re attractive to researchers, in order to increase Europe’s capacity and performance in research and
technological development and to consolidate and further develop the European Research Area. Against the background of growin g
competition at world level, the development of an open and comp etit ive European labour market for researchers with diversified,
attractive career prospects is needed.
The added value of the support provided by the specific 'People' programme is the promotion of the international and intersec toral
mobility of researchers as a key driver for European Innovation. Marie Curie Actions also foster stronger cooperation between
education, research and businesses from different countries in the train ing and career develop ment of researchers to broaden their
skills and prepare them for the jobs of tomorro w. A closer partnership between education and businesses should be further reinforced
in order to increase knowledge transfers and enhance PhD training adapted to the need of industry. By pro moting emp loyment
conditions in line with the European researcher's charter and code, they contribute to make the research career in Eu rope more
attractive.

The integrated approach advocated in the Europe 2020 Strategy involves the development of synergies and combined actions between
research, innovation and education policies (so-called "knowledge triangle"). In this perspective "knowledge partnerships" are
explicit ly mentioned in the EU 2020 Strategy, under the flagship in itiative Innovation Union ("To promote knowledge partnerships
and strengthen links between education, business, research and innovation, including through the EIT").
Many efforts have been devoted at EU level to strengthening the relations between research and innovation and between research and
education. The EU has also showed political determination to enhance relations between business and academia, e.g. as one of the
core elements of the modern isation agenda for universities and in the context of the European Higher Education Area. But the
concrete implementation so far as been less structured and systematic leaving the relat ion between education and innovation s omehow
as the neglected link of the knowledge triangle.
The University-Business Forum has opened a dialogue between the two worlds about how they can work more closely together and
has shown that there is an appetite on both sides for partnership focused on education, with a view to ensuring that educatio n delivers
high-level and highly valued skills, underpinned at all times by high levels of adaptability, entrepreneurship and creative and
innovative capacities.
Objective
Building on both these initiatives, a pilot project would propose to fund Knowledge Pa rtnerships which should be a structured,
coming together of businesses with education and training institutions to deliver new curricula, new courses and to develop n ew,
innovative ways of delivering education. The outcomes of the Knowledge Partnerships co uld inspire education and training
institutions in Eu rope to modernise their curricula etc. The aim at all times should be to ensure that graduates in all field s will emerge
fro m their education with in-depth knowledge of specific research issues as well as with high levels of T-shaped skills, ensuring high
emp loyability, adaptability and entrepreneurial, creat ive and innovative attitudes.
Implementation
This pilot project will set up a partnership where a solid ly structured consortium involving businesses and industry (including venture
capitalises, incubation firms ...), education and training institutions will deliver new curricula, new courses and new ways of
delivering education (e.g. internships in industry and business involving trans -national mobility to offer on-the-job learning
opportunities; e-courses; interactive learning methods, etc...) with the objective of developing the following skills at master and Ph D
levels:
— Robust entrepreneurship skills in the broadest sense enabling graduates to creatively respond to a complex and rapidly changing
environment; encompassing but not confined to setting up a business or running and SME,
— Business skills (e.g. basic economics, financial literacy, developing market research, drafting a business plan, raising finance, sales
techniques, running a business meeting),
— Inter-personal skills (team working, co mmun ication, self -confidence, taking init iative, p roblem-solving, taking calculated risk,
leadership).

Remarks

The second health programme replaces the previous programme established by Decision No 1786/ 2002/ EC and covers the period
2008-2013.
Since 2008, as far as the health area is concerned, the programme has been focusing on three pillars where action at European level is
essential:
(1) Health information
The objective of this pillar is to strengthen the collection, analysis, exchange and dissemination of health-related informat ion in
Europe — including on disabilit ies and ‘dys’ conditions — which is necessary to provide a solid foundation for health policy making
and is also needed by professionals for their wo rk and by citizens to enable them to make he althy lifestyle choices.
Actions will further include research into mu ltip le sclerosis, with special attention being paid to identifying the factors b ehind the
difference in the incidence of the disease between northern and southern parts of Europe.
Actions should also include measures to help boost research into the possible causes of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), wit h
particular attention being paid to professional sports and the possible influence of substance abuse in the world of sport.
(2) Health security
The overall object ive is to protect citizen against health threats.
An effective rapid response capability is needed to avoid threats to public health, for examp le arising fro m co mmun icable dis eases or
chemical o r bio logical attacks. Tackling s uch threats needs to be coordinated effectively at EU level. EU integration based on the

principle of free movement increases the need for vigilance, in o rder to respond to major cross -border health threats such as avian flu,
or bioterrorism.
(3) Pro mote health to improve prosperity and solidarity
The overall object ive is to contribute to EU prosperity by fostering healthy ageing and bridging inequalit ies as well as to e nhance
solidarity between national health systems.
Actions will include in itiatives to increase healthy life years and promote healthy ageing; explore health’s impact on productivity and
labour participation; support the reduction of inequalities between Member States and investment in health, thus contributing to the
Lisbon agenda, and to productivity and growth. Actions will also enhance solidarity between health systems, including cooperation on
shared challenges, thus facilitating the development of a Union framework for safe, high -quality and efficient health services. Actions
should also include init iatives to evaluate, by independent organisations, the quality of service provided by emergency med ical
services from the mo ment an alert is launched by citizens (e.g. through emergency call nu mbers) until the v ictim is transferr ed t o
hospital care; the aim is to help improve emergency medical services on the basis of comparable data and the identification of best
practices to be exchanged between EU Member States.
Actions will further include the promotion of health by tackling environ mental, addiction and lifestyle determinants.
Non-governmental organisations are key players in the implementation of the programme. Therefore, they should be allocated
adequate funds.
Actions will also include appropriate init iatives to follow up on the reco mmend ations obtained through the Green Paper consultation
on mental health, and in particu lar on strategies to prevent suicide across the lifespan.
The objective is also for the Co mmission to imp lement the Health In All Policies strategy under the Structural Fu nds. Such a project
should cover proposals for methods on how health issues could be incorporated — in accordance with the Health In A ll Policies
strategy — into regional develop ment projects. The project aims to enhance overall health in the European Unio n by means of
capacity building in the context of reg ional develop ment agencies.
The budget should cover training courses, international events, exchange of experiences, good practices, and international
collaboration with a view to the practical use of Health Impact Assessment (HIA) both for local govern ment and development
agencies and for individuals or co mpanies willing to apply for a grant provided by the European Union.
With regard to the crucial importance of s mall and med iu m-sized enterprises in the European Union, they should be provided with
professional support for co mpliance with environ mental health ru les, and to help them make positive changes to environmental health
affecting co mpany operation.
A European database on health issues and a database on environment issues should be interconnected so that further research could be
improved for analysing the link between environment quality and state of health.

Remarks

The Union’s financial assistance helps accelerate the eradication or co ntrol of an imal diseases by providing funds to supplement
national financial resources and contributes to harmonising measures at Union level. The bulk of these diseases or infections are
zoonoses communicable to man (BSE, brucellosis, avian influenza, sal monellosis, tuberculosis, etc.). Moreover, the persistence of the
diseases in question hampers smooth operation of the internal market; fighting them helps to improve the level of public health and to
boost food safety in the European Union.

Remarks

The outbreak of some animal diseases in the Union could possibly have a major impact on operation of the internal market and on the
Union’s commercial relations with third countries. Thus, it is important for the Union to make a financial co ntribution in order to
allo w the fastest eradication possible of any outbreak of a serious infectious disease in Member States by deploying Union re sources
to fight these diseases.

Remarks

This preparatory action was launched in 2008 to cover the costs of developing improved control posts (resting points) for ani mals
during long journeys. In the interests of animal health and welfare, it has been necessary to introduce specific measures to avoid
stress, for example, when animals are unloaded and reloaded, and to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
The Budget Authority has allocated new credits to pursue this action in 2009 and 2010.

Remarks

This appropriation is intended to cover earlier co mmit ments.
The purpose of the action is to test hypotheses in the field of migration management. On the basis of its evaluation, it could lead to the
development of a global approach, an objective set by the European Union. The act ion will be based on three related components.
Component 1: Financial assistance for the employ ment of immigrants returning to their countries of orig in with wh ich there are
admission agreements.
Component 2: Organising informat ion campaigns, in countries of orig in, for applicants for immigrat ion into the European Un ion so as
to inform them in part icular about the dangers of illegal immigrat ion.
Component 3: Reception in dignity and solidarity – Assistance to Member States in coping with reception of irregular migrants
arriving by sea. Measures would:
assist Member States affected by sudden arrivals of migrants, e.g. by improv ing and exchanging good/best practices and provid ing
interpreters and medical and legal teams,
assist Member States to enhance reception quality and capacity, including temporary capacity, reception of irregular migrants at
arrival points, e.g. by providing first aid and transport to adequate reception centres and improving/increasing reception fa cilit ies and
conditions at those facilities,
assist Member States in pooling resources to address particular pressures on their asylum systems, in particular through activities
where specific expertise is needed, sharing knowledge and promoting jo int approaches to address mass arrivals of asylum seekers at
the external border of the Union.
For co mponent 3, recipients of funding should be national authorities. Pro jects may include partnerships with other Member St ate
authorities, international organisations and NGOs.
For all co mponents, part of the appropriations should be used by the Commission to help in the management of this action (external
experts, studies, etc.).

Remarks

This appropriation is intended to finance, as regards structural measures, projects and measures concerning the reception of refu gees,
displaced persons and asylum applicants which meet the conditions governing elig ibility for Union financial aid.
It is intended to support Member States’ efforts to integrate refugees and other persons granted supplementary support, and to permit
displaced persons a life for which they themselves are responsible, through measures taken chiefly in the fo llo wing areas:
facilitating access to employ ment, including vocational training,
acquisition of knowledge of the language, society, culture and institutions of the host country,
facilitating access to housing and to the medical and social infrastructure of the host country,
support for persons in particular need of protection, such as women refugees, unaccompanied minors and torture victims, in cluding
victims of forced abortion, female genital mutilation or coerced sterilisation and rape victims,
integration into local structures and activities,
improvement in public awareness and understanding of refugees’ situation,
analysis of the situation of refugees in the European Union,
training on gender issues and child protection for officials, healthcare wo rkers and police officers at reception centres ,
separate accommodation for single wo men and girls.
Moreover, it is intended to support efforts of the voluntary burden sharing operations by Member States, such as the resettle ment,
reception and integration by Member States of refugees coming fro m third countries and recognised by UNHCR and transfers of
applicants and beneficiaries of international protection fro m one Member State to another which grants them equivalent protec tion.
Part of this appropriation will be used for supporting the Member States in direct cooperation with United Nations humanitarian and
other agencies which on a voluntary basis extend resettlement in a flexib le manner in acute refugee situations. The focus wil l b e on
the most vulnerable groups and cases where other durable solutio ns are regarded as having been ruled out.
Particular attention should be given to when the appropriation can be used to demonstrate a significant and tangible act of s olid arity at
European level wh ich can produce added value as part of a broader approach o n delivery of hu manitarian support to a country or
region.
At the Commission’s initiat ive, this appropriation is also intended to cover transnational actions or actions of interest to the Union as a
whole (EU/ Co mmunity actions) concerning asylum policy and measures applicable to the target population of the Fund, in particular
to offer adequate support to joint efforts by Member States to identify, share and promote best practices and establish effec tive
cooperation structures in order to enhance the quality of decision making.
This appropriation is also intended to cover earlier co mmit ments fro m ERF I and II, including those regarding voluntary repat riation.
It is also intended to finance an EU/Co mmunity action to comp ile data for collaboration and exchange of best practices among
childcare workers in closed detention centres for asylum seekers and immigrants.
A solidarity mechanism will be established to facilitate the voluntary reallocation of refugees and beneficiaries of internat ional
protection from Member States which are facing severe pressure fro m immigrat ion flows to other Member States. The mechanism
would be established at EU level and brought into operation on a trial basis so that it may eventually be continued under a Co mmon
European Asylum System. Member States would freely determine all aspects of the selection process on a voluntary basis. The
Co mmission would set the framework, issue guidelines, encourage participation and facilitate management and coordination.
The mechanis m should be established in line with the Eu ropean Council Conclusions of 18/ 19 June 2009. The Conclusions note that,
in view of the present humanitarian emergency, concrete measures need to be quickly put in place and implemented. The Eu ropea n
Council called for the coordination of voluntary measures for internal reallocation of beneficiaries of international protection present
in the Member States exposed to specific and disproportionate pressures and highly vulnerable persons and welco med the intent ion of
the Co mmission to take initiat ives in this respect starting with a pilot project.

Remarks

In the event of mass influ xes of refugees or displaced persons, emergency measures in the follo wing areas ca n be taken under this
article:
reception and accommodation,
provision of subsistence funds,
med ical, psychological and other assistance, aimed in particular at minors and including specialised assistance to women and girls
who have fallen victim to harassment in any form or to criminal acts (rape, violence or specific forms of torture such as forced
abortion, female genital mut ilation or coerced sterilisation) or have suffered because of poor conditions as refugees,
necessary staffing and administrative cos ts in connection with reception and carrying out the measures,
expert missions and ancillary technical assistance for the identification of d isplaced persons,
logistical and transport costs.
Under this provision, emergency measures can also be taken to ad dress situations of particular p ressure, characterised by the sudden
arrival at part icular points on the borders of a large nu mber of third country nationals who may be in need of international p rotection,
where this places exceptionally heavy and urgent demands on the reception facilities, the asylum system or the infrastructure of the
Member State(s) concerned and may give rise to risks to human life, well-being or access to protection provided for under EU
legislation.
The duration of such measures must not exceed six months. Besides the measures listed above, emergency measures may inclu de
legal aid and language assistance and the provision of translation and interpretation services, country of origin information or
expertise and other measures contributing to the rapid identification of persons who may be in need of international protection and to
fair and efficient processing of asylum applications.

The main objective of this pilot pro ject is to establish a netwo rk of contacts and discussion between targeted municipalities and local
authorities in Member States which have just started a resettlement programme, or wish to participate in a near future, and M ember
States which are experienced in resettlement, drawing on UNHCR and NGO experiences and best practices in the resettlement and
reintegration of refugees. The pilot project will cover the fo llo wing actions:
— identify ing municipalities or local authorities in Member States that have just started resettlement p rogrammes (e.g. Portugal,
Ro mania) or are about to do so (e.g. Spain) and arranging meetings with selected municipalities or local authorities in reset tlement
countries (e.g. the UK and the Netherlands) with a v iew to strengthening ‘new’ resettlement programmes and ensuring that they are
high-quality and sustainable;
— identify ing municipalities or local authorities or NGOs in Member States not yet participating in resettlement programmes, bu t
wishing to join the network with a v iew to future participation in such programmes;
— holding meetings of representatives of the targeted local authorities and municipalities involved, along with the UNHCR,
participating NGOs and representatives of resettled refugees, to lay down the activities to be developed jointly , including visits,
exchanges of experience, training and thematic meetings focusing on issues such as housing, education and employment;
— designing a form for co llect ing informat ion fro m the various stakeholders on procedures, types of monitoring prior t o resettlement,
types of informat ion collected on the refugees to be resettled (including cultural, health and educational issues and diet),
infrastructure, human resources, accommodation, reception, actions taken after resettlement fo r the integration of refugees,
community part icipation in the process, any economic, legal or educational aid, the role of refugees already resettled in the integration
process, and cooperation with NGOs;
— creating a task fo rce, with the necessary human and technical resources, to make the practical arrangements for the project and in
particular to provide for the necessary meet ings, collect available informat ion, create a website and content for it, thus in creasing the
exchange of informat ion between the stakeholders in the resettlement process, and create links with existing resettlement-related
projects and/or websites. This website will also allow info rmation on past and future meetings between municipalities or loca l
authorities to be made availab le to all interested parties on a systematic basis;
— collating the information gathered by the task force, which will then circu late it for d iscussion on the network, in order to draw
conclusions on best practices.
The experience gained fro m the pilot project will be recorded and passed on to the Resettlement Un it in the European Asylum Support
Office (EASO) once it has been set up.

Remarks

This appropriation is intended to cover earlier co mmit ments .
The aim o f this heading is to introduce throughout the European Union a mechanism known as ‘A mber Alert’ (in the Un ited State s of
America and Greece) and ‘A lerte-En lèvement’ (in France), while stressing the need for cross -border interconnection.
Following the successful use, in France and Greece (and also in the USA and Canada), o f systems alerting the public in cases of child
abduction (or disappearance) and when children’s health or lives may be at serious risk, the Co mmission would like to help Me mber
States to put similar mechanisms in place nationally. If all Member States adopt such mechanisms and commun ication schemes ar e
put in place, resolving cross -border cases will be possible and easier.
This budget heading is intended to finance the additional costs which might arise as a result of putting this mechanism in place. Costs
involved in setting up round-the-clock contact points, freephone lines and IT networks would be typical costs.

At EU level, there are major deficiencies and obstacles with regard to the collection of reliab le and comparab le statistics o n children.
A methodology therefore needs to be developed for devising indicators relating specifically to children.
The objectives of the pilot project:
Collection of statistics and best practices relating to children
promoting the exchange of information, establishing best practices and publishing an overview of the s tate of play in the 27 Member
States;
establishing a knowledge base on children's rights which will enable the EU institutions and Member States to adapt their policies on
the basis of shared know-how;
analysing Member States' current leg islation on safeguarding children's rights;
devising indicators (quantitative and qualitative) and benchmarks so as to enhance the comparability, objectivity and reliab i lity of
child-related data at Eu ropean level with regard to:
child poverty and social exclusion,
abuse, sexual explo itation of children and paedophile pornography,
domestic violence,
sex touris m,

interinstitutional framework for cooperation extended to Member States for the development of a co mmunicat ion and information
policy strategy for the European Union.

down common guidelines for interinstitutional cooperation in matters of EU in formation and co mmunication policy. It coord inates the
central and decentralised public info rmation activ ities on European topics. Each year the IGI gives its opinion on the priorit ies for the
following years on the basis of information provided by th e Co mmission.
