European Partnership on Metrology (A9-0242/2021 - Maria da Graça Carvalho)

11-11-2021
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of the report on the European Partnership on Metrology, which I negotiated in ITRE on behalf of my political group. While the science of measurement is still a niche which is relatively unknown, successful research in this field can contribute to delivering the ambitious goals of the environmental and digital transition. The impact of metrology is horizontal and embeds many sectors of our economy and our society: let us think - for instance - about monitoring of CO2 emissions and air pollution in general, health diagnostics, smart grids, digital connectivity and advanced manufacturing. The European Partnership on Metrology will help give this science the visibility it deserves, while reducing the investment gap and the fragmentation that currently hampers it from becoming more competitive towards other global players that support the sector much stronger than our Union.

Serious cross-border threats to health (A9-0247/2021 - Véronique Trillet-Lenoir)

11-11-2021
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of a proposal to align the functioning of the EU Health Emergency Preparedness and the Response Authority (HERA) with future regulation on cross-border health threats. The two proposals need to be coherent to ensure the safety of EU citizens. The parliament updated its position calling for greater transparency on public investments, development and manufacturing of medical countermeasures in case of a crisis. Importantly, close cooperation is requested among all relevant health bodies and authorities, especially to avoid duplication of efforts. Especially in times like these, we need to ensure the EU has a strong, comprehensive legal framework allowing the Union to prepare and respond effectively to health crises. We need to be more prepared than we were with Covid-19 for future threats.
