In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the President of the European Parliament has established a number of measures to contain the spread of the virus and to safeguard Parliament's core activities.
The current precautionary measures do not affect work on legislative priorities.
Core activities are maintained to ensure the smooth running of the institution's legislative, budgetary, and scrutiny functions. The meetings allow for remote participation in a virtual environment.

Following these decisions, the next INGE Special Committee ordinary meetings will take place on Thursday 2 September (9.00 - 12.00); Monday 6 September (16.45 - 17.45); and Thursday 9 September (9.00 - 12.00, jointly with the Committee on Culture and Education (CULT)).
