DRAFT EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION

on the proposal for a Council regulation establishing the Research and Training Programme of the European Atomic Energy Community for the period 2021-2025 complementing Horizon Europe – the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation

(COM(2018)0437 – C8-0380/2018 – 2018/0226(NLE))

(Consultation)

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Commission proposal to the Council (COM(2018)0437),

–  having regard to Article 7 of the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community, pursuant to which the Council consulted Parliament (C8-0380/2018),

–  having regard to Rule 78c of its Rules of Procedure,

–  having regard to the report of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (A8-0406/2018),

1.  Approves the Commission proposal as amended;

2.  Calls on the Commission to alter its proposal accordingly, in accordance with Article 293(2) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and Article 106a of the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community;

3.  Calls on the Council to notify Parliament if it intends to depart from the text approved by Parliament;

4.  Asks the Council to consult Parliament again if it intends to substantially amend the Commission proposal;

5.  Instructs its President to forward its position to the Council and the Commission.

Amendment    1

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 1 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(1 a)  The European Parliament should be consulted at all relevant steps during the implementation and evaluation of the Programme. The Council asked the European Parliament for its opinion on the Research and Training Programme of the European Atomic Energy Community for the period 2021-2025. However, since the ordinary legislative procedure does not apply under the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community, , the European Parliament is not considered to be on an equal footing with the Council when adopting legislation relating to atomic energy. Given the European Parliament’s role as a co-legislator regarding budgetary matters and in order to ensure the coherent design and implementation of the Union´s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, the Euratom Research and Training Programme should also be adopted by means of the ordinary legislative procedure.

Amendment    2

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 2

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(2)  Nuclear research can contribute to social well-being, economic prosperity and environmental sustainability by improving nuclear safety, security and radiation protection. Radiation protection research has led to improvements in medical technologies from which many citizens benefit and that research can now lead to improvements in other sectors such as industry, agriculture, environment and security. Equally important is the potential contribution of nuclear research to the long-term decarbonisation of the energy system in a safe, efficient and secure way.

(2)  Nuclear research can contribute to social well-being and economic prosperity by improving nuclear safety, security and radiation protection. Nuclear research makes an important contribution to environmental sustainability and the fight to combat climate change by reducing the Union’s dependence on imported energy, while radiation protection research has led to improvements in medical technologies from which many citizens benefit and that research can now lead to improvements in other sectors such as industry, agriculture, environment and security. Equally important is the contribution of nuclear research to the long-term decarbonisation of the energy system in a safe, efficient and secure way.

Recital 4

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(4)  The Commission's Report on the interim evaluation of the 2014-18 Euratom Research and Training Programme (COM(2017) 697 final) provides a set of guiding principles for the Programme. These include: to continue supporting nuclear research focused on nuclear safety, safeguards, security, waste management, radiation protection and development of fusion; to further improve, together with beneficiaries, the organisation and management of the European Joint Programmes in the nuclear field; to continue and reinforce the Euratom education and training actions for developing relevant competencies which underpin all aspects of nuclear safety, security and radiation protection; to further exploit synergies between Euratom programme and other thematic areas of the Union Framework Programme; and to further exploit synergies between direct and indirect actions of the Euratom programme.

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

Your rapporteur welcomes the Commission proposal for a decision of the Council on the EURATOM research and training programme for the years 2021-2025. The proposal continues along the established path of previous programmes but addresses some of the key concerns expressed by the European Parliament in the past, namely the simplification of the programme and better alignment with the wider Horizon Europe research programme.

Your rapporteur is of the opinion that continued development of safety in nuclear operations is key to reaping the benefits of the technology while minimising the risks associated. The aging fleet of EU nuclear facilities will require not just increased decommissioning research, but new, safer and more efficient ways of operating and maintaining existing reactors.

In order to fulfil the climate goals of the Paris agreement, the EU needs to employ all safe and sustainable technologies and innovations. Nuclear energy, as a low-carbon form of power, is an important part of the energy mix in some Member States and has the potential to contribute to the decarbonisation of the EU energy system as a whole. However, the safe operation of existing reactor models and the preparation for new technologies is crucial.

Europe is a global leader in nuclear research, safety, and security issues related to nuclear materials and nuclear waste. We should continue to invest in cutting-edge research in these topics in order to maintain the skills and knowledge required for safe and secure operation of nuclear power. Furthermore, investments are needed in the development of fusion technologies and a committed completion of the Fusion roadmap. The largest share of funds under this programme should continue to be deployed to fusion research.

As it falls under the Euratom treaty, the program continues to be apart from EU’s general framework programs for science and research. Your rapporteur feels this distinction is completely arbitrary and that more synergies and better science could be achieved through the integration of the two programmes. Especially important would be to extend the European Parliament’s scrutiny and legislative powers to the Euratom research and training programme as befits the role of the Parliament as a co-legislator on budgetary matters.

However, this proposal goes in the right direction of de facto aligning the programme to the Horizon Europe rules and regulations. Alongside technical alignment, it is also crucial that the same principles of excellence and open science are maintained across the two programmes.
