Question for written answer E-003089-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Martina Anderson (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  FP7 and Horizon 2020 funding for Israel
 Answer in writing 

In answer E-008524/2014 the Commission states that ‘payments are still to be made to Israeli entities participating in ongoing FP7 actions, in compliance with the respective grant agreements’.

How much remains to be paid in ongoing FP7 funding to Israel, and when will this funding end?

Answer E-008524/2014 also states that ‘the EU Research Framework Programmes, including FP7 and Horizon 2020, do not provide support for military research…’ and that ‘several mechanisms have been put in place to ensure that EU funds are not used for activities that could be contrary to international law’.

Can the Commission outline what mechanisms have been put in place to ensure that EU funds are not used for activities that may breach international law?

Is Horizon 2020 funding prohibited from funding military research only or is it also prohibited from funding the firms that carry out military research irrespective of whether the funding is intended for research areas other than military?
