        Real Driving Emissions tests 
        Brussels, Jòzsef Antall, 4Q2 

        The Environment, Public Health and Food Safety committee will hold a public hearing on "Real Driving Emissions tests" to inform ENVI on the development of these new testing procedures, in the context of ENVI's ongoing work on the reduction of pollutant emissions from road vehicles. In September 2015, ENVI adopted its position on the Commission proposal of January 2014 on the reduction of pollutant emissions from road vehicles. A key feature of ENVI's position is that test procedures for certain pollutant emissions should reflect real driving conditions, a timely response given the revelation of Volkswagen's use of defeat devices in laboratory emissions testing. This hearing will host speakers representing industry, consumers and research with a view to increasing understanding of the issues at stake.

        Taking citizens' concerns seriously: broadening the scope of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights 
        Brussels, Altiero Spinelli, 3G2 

        This hearing, organised by the Petitions Committee, aims at discovering whether the protection granted to citizens' fundamental rights in the EU is in fact effective and to what extent citizens' expectations, as expressed in petitions, can indeed be satisfied under the present legal mechanism of protection. Speakers will originate from academic institutions, the Court of Justice of the EU, a national Constitutional Court and competent EU institutions and agencies.

        Brussels, Jòzsef Antall, 4Q1 

        Building on the past experience, members of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development will debate with academics and sector representatives future ways to tackle price volatility in the agricultural markets. Farmers in many EU member states have been struggling for months now with falling prices they get for their products, particularly milk and meat ones.
