Research for REGI Committee - Digital agenda and cohesion policy

15-06-2018

This study provides a critical analysis of the contribution of Cohesion Policy and the European Structural Investment Funds to the Digital Agenda for Europe and the Digital Single Market. Based on the analysis of past and current patterns of ESIF digital investments and selected case studies, this study shows that Cohesion Policy should concentrate where its added value is highest, i.e., on support to the formulation of effective regional digital strategies and on the promotion of partnerships between ...

This study provides a critical analysis of the contribution of Cohesion Policy and the European Structural Investment Funds to the Digital Agenda for Europe and the Digital Single Market. Based on the analysis of past and current patterns of ESIF digital investments and selected case studies, this study shows that Cohesion Policy should concentrate where its added value is highest, i.e., on support to the formulation of effective regional digital strategies and on the promotion of partnerships between relevant stakeholders, at regional level and beyond.

EU strategy on cooperative intelligent transport systems

31-08-2017

Digital technologies, and systems based on them, are being rapidly introduced in transport all over the world. Cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) in road transport are part of this development, and one element in a wider drive towards vehicle automation. These systems use technologies allowing road vehicles to communicate with other vehicles or road users and roadside infrastructure. By increasing the quality and reliability of information, C-ITS can improve road safety and traffic ...

Digital technologies, and systems based on them, are being rapidly introduced in transport all over the world. Cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) in road transport are part of this development, and one element in a wider drive towards vehicle automation. These systems use technologies allowing road vehicles to communicate with other vehicles or road users and roadside infrastructure. By increasing the quality and reliability of information, C-ITS can improve road safety and traffic efficiency as well as reduce energy consumption and emissions from transport, provided that cyber security and data protection are ensured. The European Commission has put forward a strategy outlining the path towards commercial deployment of C-ITS in the EU by 2019, seeking to avoid market fragmentation and maintain EU competitiveness. The main steps proposed are to adopt a legal framework for providing investors with legal certainty, to make EU funding available for projects, and to continue cooperation with EU stakeholders and international partners. The strategy addresses key issues such as data protection and cyber-security, systems interoperability and technical specifications. In the meantime, several ongoing pilot projects are consolidating the experience to be shared. The European Parliament, a long-time supporter of C-ITS and defender of personal data protection, is preparing a report on the strategy.

Dix autres technologies qui pourraient changer nos vies

14-07-2017

En 2015, la direction générale des services de recherche parlementaire du Parlement européen (DG EPRS) a ouvert la voie à l’innovation par l’intermédiaire de sa publication intitulée «Dix technologies qui pourraient changer nos vies: impacts potentiels et conséquences des politiques», dont chaque chapitre met en avant une technologie particulière, ses promesses et ses possibles conséquences négatives, ainsi que le rôle que le Parlement européen pourrait et devrait jouer dans l’orientation de ces ...

En 2015, la direction générale des services de recherche parlementaire du Parlement européen (DG EPRS) a ouvert la voie à l’innovation par l’intermédiaire de sa publication intitulée «Dix technologies qui pourraient changer nos vies: impacts potentiels et conséquences des politiques», dont chaque chapitre met en avant une technologie particulière, ses promesses et ses possibles conséquences négatives, ainsi que le rôle que le Parlement européen pourrait et devrait jouer dans l’orientation de ces avancées. La présente étude poursuit sur la même lancée en présentant dix autres technologies qui exigeront une attention accrue de la part des responsables politiques. Les sujets de cette nouvelle étude ont été choisis de telle sorte qu’ils reflètent les nombreux thèmes sur lesquels le panel de la STOA a décidé de se concentrer dans le cadre du huitième mandat du Parlement (2014-2019). L’objectif de cette publication n’est pas uniquement d’attirer l’attention sur ces dix technologies en particulier: il consiste également à promouvoir une réflexion plus poussée sur ces avancées technologiques qui n’en sont peut-être encore qu’à leurs débuts, mais qui pourraient tout de même avoir d’importantes répercussions sur nos vies dans un avenir proche ou lointain.

New radio frequencies for mobile internet services

03-07-2017

While radio spectrum management is predominantly a national competence, EU policy plays an increasingly important role in its coordination and harmonisation. The EU actively seeks ways to harmonise use of the different bands of the spectrum to meet the ever-growing demand for wireless mobile broadband. Nevertheless, spectrum allocation in the EU remains fragmented and varies among Member States. Following developments in the international framework, as well as the considerations of high-level expert ...

While radio spectrum management is predominantly a national competence, EU policy plays an increasingly important role in its coordination and harmonisation. The EU actively seeks ways to harmonise use of the different bands of the spectrum to meet the ever-growing demand for wireless mobile broadband. Nevertheless, spectrum allocation in the EU remains fragmented and varies among Member States. Following developments in the international framework, as well as the considerations of high-level expert groups and a public consultation, the Commission adopted a long-term strategy for use of the 470-790 MHz frequency band. The strategy proposes to repurpose the 694-790 MHz band, to use it for wireless broadband rather than television broadcasting. The latter is to have priority in the 470-694 MHz band. Under the agreement among the co-legislators, Member States will reassign the 694-790 MHz band by 30 June 2020. This reallocation may be delayed by up to two years in duly justified cases, examples of which are given in the agreed text. Broadcasting services will maintain priority in 470-694 MHz band at least until 2030, but the Member States will have certain flexibility to use this range for other purposes. This updates an earlier edition, of December 2016: PE 595.856.

Optimal Regulatory Model for Telecommunications Services in the EU

15-02-2017

This report reviews the market trends for the development of digital networks and applications for 2020 and beyond and, on that basis, proposes a framework for an optimal regulation for telecommunications services in the European Union. Against that framework, the report then critically assesses the draft European Electronic Communications Code proposed by the Commission in September 2016.

This report reviews the market trends for the development of digital networks and applications for 2020 and beyond and, on that basis, proposes a framework for an optimal regulation for telecommunications services in the European Union. Against that framework, the report then critically assesses the draft European Electronic Communications Code proposed by the Commission in September 2016. We submit that the Commission’s proposal goes in the right direction but in not ambitious enough to protect the EU consumers in the App economy and to stimulate the digital single market. We think that universal service should ensure an extensive availability of Wi-Fi connections throughout the EU and that citizens need to be protected by general consumer protection rules that are smarter and better enforced instead of detailed and complicated sector-specific rules. This paper was prepared at the request of Policy Department A and the IMCO Committee.

Dans l’ensemble, l’AI donne une explication complète et bien documentée des faits sur lesquels s’appuient les propositions législatives. Cependant, en raison de la nature des propositions (l’une d’elles étant une refonte des quatre directives existantes), il a été difficile de garder le rapport concis et lisible. L’AI dépasse clairement la longueur recommandée dans les lignes directrices pour une meilleure réglementation. Le rapport présente correctement les avis des parties prenantes, bien que la ...

Cependant, en raison de la nature des propositions (l’une d’elles étant une refonte des quatre directives existantes), il a été difficile de garder le rapport concis et lisible. L’AI dépasse clairement la longueur recommandée dans les lignes directrices pour une meilleure réglementation. Le rapport présente correctement les avis des parties prenantes, bien que la consultation elle-même soit davantage axée sur le processus de révision en général que sur les options spécifiques pour une politique à venir. Enfin, la présentation trop générale des instruments de suivi constitue une lacune importante du rapport, en particulier compte tenu de l’importance des mécanismes de suivi efficaces dans l’évaluation de la mise en œuvre de la législation.

The ITRE Committee report proposes that the deadline for national roadmaps is extended to 30 June 2018, that the 470-694 MHz band can be used by broadcasting services until 2030 and that end-users are compensated promptly for the switch. A December agreement with the Council in trilogue needs now to be confirmed. "A more recent edition of this document is available.

Research for TRAN Committee - Prospects for “Remote” En-Route Air Traffic Services

15-08-2016

Remote tower services, where aircraft at an airport are remote-controlled from a separate location, have been introduced to some airports and are being tested at several others. By reviewing the current and emerging technologies, considering some of the risks associated with these technologies and evaluating the contribution of the NextGen and SESAR programmes, this paper aims to assess the feasibility of also providing “remote” en-route Air Traffic Services in Europe.
