EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

Commission proposal

The Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) supports research and innovation projects in the areas of coal and steel. Every year around €40 million are made available to universities, research centres and private companies to fund projects. The purpose of this proposal is to amend the Council Decision 2008/376/EC in order to align it ‘with the scientific, technological and political objectives of the Community’ according to Article 2 of Council Decision 2008/376/EC itself.

 

This Commission’s proposal aims at bringing the RFCS Research Programme in line with the Paris Agreement, the European Green Deal, the Sustainable Europe Investment Plan, the New Circular Economy Action Plan and the New Industrial Strategy for Europe.

 

The proposal has in particular the following objectives:

 

 Updating the coal research objectives in line with the Commission’s climate, energy and environmental targets. It also aims at achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and the ‘do no harm principle’ enshrined in the European Green Deal;

 Supporting a fair and just transition for coal regions in line with the principles of the Just Transition Mechanism;

 Revising the steel research objectives in order to prioritise near zero carbon steelmaking technologies, applications and use;

 Providing for the possibility of implementing a part of the RFCS Research Programme through co-programmed European Partnerships;

 Replacing a special regime for experts under the research framework programme by the general rules on remunerated external experts laid down in the Financial Regulation.

 

Position of the Rapporteur

The Rapporteur, who is not dealing with this report in his personal capacity but as the Chair of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, emphasises the importance of the Fund to support the steel and coal sectors in their transition. The Fund should help to ensure that no region concerned by this transition is left behind and that the steel sector remains competitive.

At this stage, the Rapporteur would like to point out the following remarks, which the Committee, and at a later stage the Parliament, could take into consideration when debating and deciding on this proposal:

 It is good that the RFCS revision encourages greater use of private and public investment in research, innovation and new technologies with the aim to develop solutions for a more competitive and sustainable industry;

 Research projects would have to contribute to sustainable decarbonisation of the steel industry, helping to position the EU as a leading provider of low-carbon products, services and advanced technologies in steelmaking;

 The Research Programme should pay careful attention to economic, environmental and social objectives. This is to ensure sufficient support not only for commercial but also to public sectors in regions undergoing transition;

 The RFCS revision should encourage greater use of technologies aimed at promoting the circular economy;

 It is important to assess the impact on the employment in regions affected by a coal phase out and at the same time to promote opportunities for future economic development and creation of jobs in those regions.
