A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes and contributions from speakers.

The rapporteur will be Mr Ernest Urtasun (Greens/Spain). A Policy Department study on the same topic was presented by the author during the hearing.
