MOTION FOR A EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT RESOLUTION
 BUDGETARY ANNEX:
 RESULT OF FINAL VOTE IN COMMITTEE

MOTION FOR A EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT RESOLUTION

on the Council position on Draft amending budget No 9/2013 of the European Union for the financial year 2013, Section III – Commission

(14872/2013 – C7-0388/2013 – 2013/2257(BUD))

The European Parliament,

–   having regard to Article 314 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and Article 106a of the Euratom Treaty,

–   having regard to Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 966/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 on the financial rules applicable to the general budget of the Union and repealing Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002(1),

–   having regard to the general budget of the European Union for the financial year 2013, as definitively adopted on 12 December 2012(2),

–   having regard to the Interinstitutional Agreement of 17 May 2006 between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline and sound financial management(3) (hereafter referred to as "IIA"),

–   having regard to Draft amending budget No 9/2013 of the European Union for the financial year 2013, which the Commission adopted on 3 October 2013 (COM(2013)0691),

–   having regard to the position adopted by the Council on 30 October 2013 on Draft amending budget No 9/2013 (14872/2013 – C7-0388/2013),

–   having regard to the joint conclusions approved by the Conciliation Committee on 12 November 2013 (PE-CONS 00000/2013 – C7 0000/2013),

–   having regard to Rules 75b of its Rules of Procedure,

–   having regard to the report of the Committee on Budgets (A7-0390/2013),

A. whereas Draft amending budget (DAB) No 9 for the year 2013 covers the mobilisation of the EU Solidarity Fund for an amount of EUR 400,5 million in commitment and payment appropriations, in favour of Romania in relation to the drought and forest fires in summer 2012, and of Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic in relation to flooding in May and June 2013,

B.  whereas the purpose of DAB No 9/2013 is to formally enter this budgetary adjustment into the 2013 budget,

1.  Takes note of DAB No 9/2013, as submitted by the Commission;

2.  Calls on the Council to cease presenting its positions under Article 314(3) TFEU in the form of legal acts (“Decision”), since this is not in conformity with Article 314 TFEU, as interpreted by the Court of Justice in its judgment of 17 September 2013 in case C-77/11 Council v Parliament; recalls that a position under Article 314(3) TFEU is a preparatory act and is valid as from its date of adoption; stresses that it will reject and ignore any clause by which the Council purports to make the validity of its position in a budgetary procedure conditional on the prior approval by the Parliament of a different budget, amending budget or legislative act;

3.  Deplores Council’s position on DAB No 9/2013, which amends the Commission’s proposal with a view to fully finance the mobilisation of the Fund through redeployments from budget lines for which underimplementation is expected by the end of 2013, as identified by the Commission in its proposal for 2013 global transfer (DEC 26/2013);

4.  Endorses the agreement reached on 12 November 2013 in the framework of the Conciliation Committee with a view to finance this mobilisation up to a level of EUR 250,5 million in payment appropriations in 2013 through redeployments, and EUR 150 million in 2014 through fresh appropriations; notes with satisfaction that this will allow to finance research needs identified in the global transfer for EUR 200 million, allowing in particular to sign a number of new research contracts still this year;

5.  Stresses, however, that it maintains its position of principle that the financing of special instruments, like the EU Solidarity Fund, should be entered in the budget over and above the MFF ceilings and does not support Council's unilateral statement on payment appropriations annexed to the joint conclusions on Budget 2014;

6.  Therefore amends the position of the Council as follows:

Remarks

This exceptional assistance aims to ease financial constraints on certain third countries experiencing macro-financial difficulties characterised by balance of payment deficits and/or serious budgetary imbalances.

It is directly linked to the implementation by the recipient countries of macro-financial stabilisation and structural adjustment measures. Union action generally complements that of the International Monetary Fund, coordinated with other bilateral donors.

The Commission informs the budgetary authority twice a year of the macro-financial situation of the beneficiary countries and reports extensively on the implementation of this assistance on a yearly basis.

Appropriations under this article will also be used to cover financial aid for the reconstruction in Georgia of the areas affected by the conflict with Russia. The actions should be primarily geared to the macro-financial stabilisation of the country. The total financial allocation for the aid was decided at an international donors’ conference in 2008.

Remarks

This appropriation is intended to cover the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) so as to enable the Union to provide temporary and targeted support for workers made redundant as a result of major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation where these redundancies have a significant adverse impact on the regional or local economy. For applications submitted before 31 December 2011, it may also be used to provide support to workers made redundant as a direct result of the global financial and economic crisis.

The maximum amount of expenditure from the Fund shall be EUR 500 000 000 per year.

The aim of this reserve, in accordance with point 28 of the Interinstitutional Agreement of 17 May 2006, is to provide additional temporary support for workers who suffer from the consequences of major structural changes in world trade patterns and to assist them with their reintegration into the labour market.

The actions undertaken by the EGF should be complementary to those of the European Social Fund. There must be no double funding from these instruments.

The rules for entering the appropriations in this reserve and for mobilising the Fund are laid down in point 28 of the Interinstitutional Agreement of 17 May 2006 and in Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 1927/2006.

Remarks

These remarks apply to all the budget headings in this title (with the exception of Chapter 08 22).

These appropriations will be used in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1906/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 laying down the rules for the participation of undertakings, research centres and universities in actions under the Seventh Framework Programme and for the dissemination of research results (2007-2013) (OJ L 391, 30.12.2006, p. 1) and Council Regulation (Euratom) No 1908/2006 of 19 December 2006 laying down the rules for the participation of undertakings, research centres and universities in action under the seventh framework programme of the European Atomic Energy Community and for the dissemination of research results (2007 to 2011) (OJ L 400, 30.12.2006, p. 1).

For all appropriations under this title the same definition of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as is used for the horizontal SME-specific programmes within the same framework programme shall apply. That definition reads as follows: ‘An eligible SME is a legal entity that complies with the SME definition set out in Commission Recommendation 2003/361/EC and is not a research centre, research institute, contract research organisation or consultancy firm’. All research activities conducted pursuant to the Seventh Framework Programme will be carried out in compliance with fundamental ethical principles (in accordance with Article 6(1) of Decision No 1982/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities (2007-2013) (OJ L 412, 30.12.2006, p. 1)), including animal welfare requirements. This will include, in particular, the principles laid down in Article 6 of the Treaty on European Union and in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. Particular account will be taken of the need to step up efforts to enhance the participation and role of women in science and research.

Also entered against these articles and items are the costs of high-level scientific and technological meetings, conferences, workshops and seminars of European interest organised by the Commission, the funding of high-level scientific and technological analyses and evaluations carried out on behalf of the Union to investigate new areas of research suitable for Union action, inter alia, in the context of the European Research Area, and measures to monitor and disseminate the results of the programmes, including measures under previous framework programmes.

These appropriations also cover administrative expenditure, including expenditure on staff, whether covered by the Staff Regulations or not, information, publications, administrative and technical operation, and certain other expenditure items relating to internal infrastructure linked with the achievement of the objective of the measure of which they form an integral part, including the action and initiatives necessary for preparation and monitoring of the Union’s strategy on research, technological development and demonstration (RTD).

Revenue resulting from cooperation agreements between the European Atomic Energy Community and Switzerland or the multilateral European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA) will be entered in Items 6 0 1 1 and 6 0 1 2 of the statement of revenue and may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations in accordance with Article 21 of the Financial Regulation.

The possibility of third countries or institutes from third countries taking part in European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research is envisaged for some of these projects. Any financial contribution will be entered in Items 6 0 1 3 and 6 0 1 5 of the statement of revenue and may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations in accordance with Article 21 of the Financial Regulation.

Revenue from States taking part in the European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research will be entered in Item 6 0 1 6 of the of the statement of revenue and may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations in accordance with Article 21 of the Financial Regulation.

Any revenue from the contributions from candidate countries and, if applicable, the western Balkan potential candidate countries for participating in Union programmes entered in Item 6 0 3 1 of the statement of revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations in accordance with Article 21(2)(e) to (g) of the Financial Regulation.

Any revenue from the contribution by outside bodies to Union activities will be entered in Item 6 0 3 3 of the statement of revenue and may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations in accordance with Article 21 of the Financial Regulation.

Additional appropriations will be made available under Article 08 22 04.

In order to be able to meet the goal of 15 % SME participation in the projects financed by these appropriations, as laid down in Decision No 1982/2006/EC, more specific action is needed. Qualifying projects under the SME specific programmes should be made eligible for funding under the thematic programme when they fulfil the necessary (thematic) requirements.

Remarks

The actions carried out in this area are intended to help reach the critical mass of capacities needed to develop and exploit, in particular with a view to eco-efficiency and reducing the discharge of dangerous substances into the environment, state-of-the-art technologies which are the basis for products, services and manufacturing procedures in years to come, based mainly on knowledge and intelligence.

Sufficient appropriations must be provided for nano research in connection with environmental and health risk assessment, since only 5 to 10 % of global nano research is devoted to this today.

Sufficient budgetary appropriations must be provided for activities promoting research and the emergence of resource-efficiency processes and practices including eco-design, reusability, recyclability and research into substitution of hazardous or critical substances.

Expenditure on meetings, conferences, workshops and high-level scientific or technological seminars of European interest organised by the Commission, the funding of studies, grants, monitoring and assessment of specific programmes, funding the IMS secretariat, high-level scientific or technological assessments and evaluations, as well as actions carried out under the previous framework programmes will also be charged.

The contributions from the EFTA States pursuant to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, and in particular Article 82 thereof and Protocol 32 thereto, must be added to the appropriations entered in this article. By way of information, these amounts derive from contributions from the EFTA States entered against Article 6 3 0 of the statement of revenue, which constitute assigned revenue in accordance with Article 21(2)(e) to (g) of the Financial Regulation; they give rise to the provision of corresponding appropriations and to implementation under the ‘European Economic Area’ Annex to this part of the statement of expenditure in this section, which forms an integral part of the general budget.

Remarks

Environmental research within the Seventh Framework Programme will be implemented through the ‘Environment (including climate change)’ theme. The objective is to promote sustainable management of the natural and human environment and its resources by advancing our knowledge of the interactions between the biosphere, ecosystems and human activities, and developing new technologies, tools and services, in order to address in an integrated way global environmental issues. Emphasis will be put on prediction of climate, ecological, earth and ocean systems changes and on tools and technologies, for monitoring, prevention and mitigation of environmental pressures and risks including on human health, and for the sustainability of the natural and man-made environment.

Research on this theme will contribute to the implementation of international commitments and initiatives such as Global Earth Observation (GEO). In addition, it will support the research needs arising from the existing and future Union legislation and policies, associated thematic strategies and the action plans on environmental technologies and on environment and health. Research will also contribute technological developments that will improve the market positioning of European enterprises, in particular of small and medium-sized enterprises, in areas such as environmental technologies.

The contributions from the EFTA States pursuant to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, and in particular Article 82 thereof and Protocol 32 thereto, must be added to the appropriations entered in this article.

Remarks

The objective of the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities (2007-2013) and the ‘Information and Communication Technologies’ theme of the specific ‘Cooperation’ programme is to improve the competitiveness of European industry and to enable Europe to master and shape the future developments in ICTs in accordance with a long-term European ICT strategy so that the demands of its society and economy are met and European standards help shape the global ICT developments rather than being overtaken by other growing global markets.

Activities will strengthen Europe’s scientific and technology base and ensure its global leadership in ICTs, help drive and stimulate innovation through ICT use and ensure that ICT progress is rapidly transformed into benefits for Europe’s citizens, businesses, industry and governments.

The ICT theme prioritises strategic research around key technology pillars, ensures end-to-end integration of technologies and provides the knowledge and the means to develop a wide range of innovative ICT applications.

The activities leverage industrial and technological advances in the ICT sector and improve the competitive edge of important ICT-intensive sectors — both through innovative high-value ICT-based products and services and from new or improved organisational processes in businesses and administrations alike. The ICT theme also supports other policies of the Union by mobilising ICTs to meet public and societal demands.

Activities cover collaboration and exchange of best practices with a view to setting common standards for the Union that are compatible with, or set, a global standard, networking actions and national programme coordination initiatives. This appropriation is also intended to cover the costs of independent experts assisting in proposal evaluations and project reviews, the costs of events, meetings, conferences, workshops and seminars of European interest organised by the Commission, the costs of studies, analyses and evaluations, the costs of monitoring and evaluation of the specific programmes and of the framework programmes and the costs of measures to monitor and disseminate the results of the programmes, including measures under previous framework programmes.

The contributions from the EFTA States pursuant to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and in particular Article 82 thereof and Protocol 32 thereto, must be added to the appropriations entered in this item. By way of information, these amounts derive from contributions from the EFTA States entered against Article 6 3 0 of the statement of revenue, which constitute assigned revenue in accordance with Article 21(2)(e) to (g) of the Financial Regulation; they give rise to the provision of corresponding appropriations and to implementation under the ‘European Economic Area’ Annex to this part of the statement of expenditure in this section, which forms an integral part of the general budget.

Part of these appropriations is intended to foster common approaches to key global challenges, such as an ICT strategy that is not only able to compete with rapidly emerging ICT markets (e.g. in Asia), but that can also set standards for global ICT policy-making in the interest of European values, by pooling resources and fostering the exchange of best practices for the advancement of research, development and innovation in the field of ICT. Measures will aim at improving the efficacy of actions by the international community and will be complementary to existing mechanisms and successful working relationships. The appropriations will be used to fund innovative ventures between European and third countries. The scope of such ventures will go beyond what could be undertaken by a single country and will benefit both the Union and its partners in preparing their leading role for setting future ICT standards. In implementing this action, the Commission will ensure a balanced distribution of subsidies. It will help actors at a global level to engage in research partnerships in order to foster innovation in the field of ICT.
