Increasing partnership in cohesion policy

07-06-2017

The partnership principle lies at the very heart of the EU’s cohesion policy. A process involving public authorities, economic and social partners, and civil society, partnership reinforces the legitimacy of EU policymaking and, by increasing ownership of the policy on the ground, can help to communicate the results of EU policies more effectively. A report on increasing engagement of partners and visibility in the performance of European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) is due to be debated ...

Documentation from the Workshop on Oversight and Resources of Partially and Fully Self-Financed Agencies

15-05-2017

The workshop aimed to address topics concerning fully and partially self-financed agencies related to both BUDG and CONT committees’ competences. With regards of the agencies' resources, the workshop looked into the principles of fee setting, and 5% cut and the redeployment pool vs. the need to provide timely services to industry, which is paying for them. From the point of oversight, items for discussion included the question of discharge procedure for fully self-financed agencies, provisions for ...

The workshop aimed to address topics concerning fully and partially self-financed agencies related to both BUDG and CONT committees’ competences. With regards of the agencies' resources, the workshop looked into the principles of fee setting, and 5% cut and the redeployment pool vs. the need to provide timely services to industry, which is paying for them. From the point of oversight, items for discussion included the question of discharge procedure for fully self-financed agencies, provisions for prevention of conflict of interest in case of the fee collecting agencies, ECA financial audit outsourcing provisions, and the question of carryovers. Points of interest for both BUDG and CONT remain the questions of performance, efficiency and effectiveness, such as indicators for measuring outputs and ways to compare them across the agencies, developing synergies and shared services, and possible grouping or clustering of the agencies.

This publication aims at providing an overview of the evolution of European Union innovation policy. The paper focuses on the progressive integration of a wide range of policies and instruments into the EU innovation policy mix and reflects on some barriers limiting the development of a EU innovation policy. European Union innovation policy finds its roots in the development of Community policy for research. However the understanding that innovation is a complex process led to the establishment of a EU innovation policy mix including both key policies (research, industrial, education and regional policies) and key framework conditions (funding, taxation, single market and competition, regulation, standards, intellectual property rights, etc.). Despite the actions already taken, numerous issues and bottlenecks still hamper the innovation process. It appears necessary to give innovation its full place as an overarching policy at the EU level and fully embrace the concept of open innovation.

EU Innovation Policy – Part II: EU policies and instruments supporting innovation

The paper focuses on current EU innovation initiatives and considers some issues limiting the development of an EU innovation policy. The EU innovation policy mix comprises, on the one hand, key policies targeting the actors of the innovation process (research and development, industrial, education and regional policy); on the other, it includes key framework conditions covering ...

This publication aims to provide an overview of the measures and instruments that make up the EU's innovation policy mix. The paper focuses on current EU innovation initiatives and considers some issues limiting the development of an EU innovation policy. The EU innovation policy mix comprises, on the one hand, key policies targeting the actors of the innovation process (research and development, industrial, education and regional policy); on the other, it includes key framework conditions covering policies and instruments shaping the interactions and organising the flows of knowledge, skills and funds between the innovation players (funding, taxation, single market and competition, regulation, standards, intellectual property rights, etc.). Most measures taken at EU level aim to address the fragmentation of the European innovation landscape resulting from the diversity of national and regional policies. Although progress has been made in addressing the barriers created by fragmentation, there is a need to renew the governance of innovation policies in order for innovation to reach its full potential in Europe.

Regional participation in EU decision-making: Role in the legislature and subsidiarity monitoring

14-04-2016

The role of sub-national bodies in EU decision-making has grown. In this regard, significant changes were introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon, which inserted an explicit reference to the sub-national dimension of the subsidiarity principle, and granted the Committee of the Regions the right to bring an action for annulment. While the 'Early Warning Mechanism' for subsidiarity monitoring is primarily concerned with national parliaments, regional parliaments with legislative powers form a separate category ...

The role of sub-national bodies in EU decision-making has grown. In this regard, significant changes were introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon, which inserted an explicit reference to the sub-national dimension of the subsidiarity principle, and granted the Committee of the Regions the right to bring an action for annulment. While the 'Early Warning Mechanism' for subsidiarity monitoring is primarily concerned with national parliaments, regional parliaments with legislative powers form a separate category of bodies caught by the protocol and may play an advisory role. Existing research, however, points to problems and challenges which regional parliaments face in engaging in genuine subsidiarity monitoring. Ex-ante subsidiarity monitoring is complemented by the possibility of ex post judicial review. Generally, challenges to Union acts on subsidiarity grounds are infrequent. At the same time, it is agreed that the very possibility of judicial review forces greater weight to be given to subsidiarity concerns during the preparation of Union law and encourages EU institutions to consider carefully whether an issue is best addressed at the European, national, regional or local level.
