San Francisco is known for its entrepreneurial, free-spirited environment. It is an environment where people take pride in inventing new approaches. The San Francisco Art Residency offers artists the opportunity to experience this atmosphere as they create new work.
As technology advances at an exponential rate, changes take place lightning fast and it is questionable if society is ready to keep pace with the shifting paradigm. Maryam Dadkhah approaches this important topic in a light-hearted way by giving humorous personalities to technology objects that have become obsolete within just one generation. It will be interesting to see what she creates during this residency, situated in the heart of the Silicon Valley tech world. Ponendo l'artista al centro, la Fondazione sostiene un programma di danza, musica, sound, performance art, teatro e arti visive e residenze sia in India che a livello internazionale.
Basu Foundation for the Arts BFA is a not-for-profit, philanthropic organization established in and revived in to encourage and support innovation, experimentation and potential in the arts. Placing the artist at the core, the Foundation facilitates a programme of dance, music, sound, performance art, theatre and visual arts exhibitions and residencies both in India and internationally. The specific set of experiences which give Juli a fresh and versatile vision when approaching research and the creative process by repurposing found objects and transforming them into precious artefacts that tell a story is very fascinating.
Exactly for these reasons we thought that the artist will be an appropriate candidate for the residency program of Basu Foundation for the Arts in Kolkata, the City of the forgotten Palaces in India to create some more magical works being inspired by local materials from parts of the City where time stood still. In the middle of this ever-active and bursting Chinese metropolis, it is a haven of freedom and peace of mind, where at any given moment 18 artists are hosted by Swatch, free to express themselves, experiment, and exchange.
The Swatch Art Peace Hotel was conceived by the company CEO, Nick Hayek, as a space to enhance the spirit of Swatch, whose love for the arts, for positive provocation, for diversity and for youth are well known internationally. The choice of Jeff Leake as winner of the Arte Laguna award is motivated by his amazing style, merging pop and classics, creating unexpected stories and engaging the viewer emotionally. Espronceda, founded in in Barcelona, is an innovative contemporary art center, a multidisciplinary environment for artists, curators and anyone believing in the importance of art and culture, with the aim of fostering established and aspiring international artists to develop their works and creativity.
Espronceda turned former industrial spaces into a state-of-the-art melting pot for culture and art, encouraging the connection with the local community and the creation of a global network among artists, firms and institutions for social change. Young Albanian artist Dalia Baassiri was chosen for her multidisciplinary approach to art, especially for her painting.
Aware of the importance of dialoguing with young artists, we believe that our choice can contribute to opening new horizons to the young Albanian artist confronting the city of Barcelona. The dialogue between cultures is one of the cornerstones and priorities of our philosophy. We were particularly intrigued by her painting that navigates between lines and figures, questioning the essentiality of everyday life, and we think that our space can open its doors to the interdisciplinary approach of her language, moving between installations, painting and light boxes.
Entro questa data, i migliori artisti saranno selezionati da una giuria internazionale di esperti e potranno diventare nostri partner, sostenuti dal dipartimento marketing e vendite nella costruzione della loro carriera. Abbiamo selezionato la fotografa Dina Goldstein per la sua eccellente visione, composizione e punto di vista innovativo attraverso una lente che condivide con lo spettatore. GLO'ART is a leading international art center, which offers young talented artists from around the world in the fields of painting, sculpture, photography and mixed media, a chance to develop their career in the international art world.
We ask the young artists to send us a portfolio, on which we base our decision to invite them for a free stay at our art center in Belgium, where they have the opportunity to present and produce their works: GLO'ART offers modern accommodation and all the equipment and materials needed to make the work of art, which will be presented to the public around mid By this date, the best artists will be selected by an international panel of experts and will have the chance to become our partners, supported by our marketing and sales department in building their career. We selected photographer Dina Goldstein for her excellent vision, composition and innovative view through a lens she shares with the spectator.
Cerchiamo di scegliere artisti che possano trarre il maggior beneficio dalla cultura locale di Bodrum e dall'atmosfera circostante. L'esplorazione intima della memoria e la sua manipolazione sono le tematiche principali su cui Zita David si concentra nei suoi dipinti. Il programma si svolge presso Casa dell'Arte Hotel a Bodrum, Torba, situato nella Turchia sud-occidentale, nel periodo di bassa stagione. We try to choose artists that would benefit the most from the local culture in Bodrum and the atmosphere around.
The intimate exploration of memory as well as the manipulation of it are the main concerns that Zita David focuses on in her paintings. The Art Department is a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing resources for the production of inspiring art projects and organizing educational programs in order to expand awareness through contemporary art. The Art Residency program is considered as one of the very first residencies in Turkey. Ispirato alle residenze coloniali dei proprietari di piantagioni di canna da zucchero, il resort vanta un mix esplosivo di arte mauriziana e indiana.
Per questa prima partecipazione, Maradiva ha selezionato il lavoro di Ilaria Arpino. I suoi dipinti ad olio e acrilico affiancati da poesie sono semplicemente toccanti. Inspired by the colonial residences of the sugar cane plantation owners, the resort boasts an electric mix of Mauritian and Indian art. At the end of the residency, the artist will donate one work to Maradiva and one will be auctioned for a charity.
For this first participation, Maradiva has selected the work of Ilaria Arpino. Her oil and acrylic paintings with the poems alongside is simply inspiring. It is however her collection of bronze sculptures which has motivated our decision as they are impressive. Having had the chance to welcome and exhibit the work of painters, poetry writers and photographers, our wish to unveil at Maradiva a series of sculptures is granted.
Every work in Arte Sella originates from the physical and intellectual experience that the artist makes not only by contemplating nature, but also and above all by passing through it, immersing herself or himself in it. The art residency thus appears as the cornerstone of a generative process that sees artist and nature in a constant dialogue from which the work gradually takes shape. Nowadays, to create a work of Land Art does not only mean to focus on the environmental issue, but also and most of all to decide to take care of a place. The choice fell on the work of Ivan Juarez, the closest to the philosophy of Arte Sella, that is to reinterpret places, giving them a new identity, without the claim to determine them in an absolute way and letting time contribute to the transformation of the works.
Especially from the work Sky Cabin clearly emerges the primary need of contemporary man to observe the world not in a purely contemplative way, but from the perspective of a physical presence capable of transforming it and of finding, through the mediation of the work of art, a new dimension of dialogue. Thanks to art, architecture, design, dance, music, but also to cooking and social activities, in a few years the Center has generated a huge change in the town of Favara, previously known only for mafia, abandonment and unauthorised development.
Today Farm wants to be more and more a platform for change, which through multidisciplinary research tries to rethink new models of life, work and being together. We could not but fall in love with the research of Ivan Juarez, focused on exploring art and function, and his refined ability to mix the disciplines of architecture, landscape, public design, environmental and public art. Also, Ivan is an architect and we love architects because they are cultured, because they have the ability and the desire to work in team and have an innate sense of sacrifice. Fornace Mian si contraddistingue per un connubio efficace che coniuga attraverso competenze artigianali tramandate nel corso del tempo, un pensiero creativo di alto livello a soluzioni tecniche innovative.
Il laboratorio di serigrafia artistica Fallani Venezia, spazio dedicato alla cultura e alla ricerca di Gruppofallani, viene fondato alla fine degli anni sessanta da Fiorenzo Fallani. The residency is organized in collaboration with Fornace Mian and Pentagram Stiftung Foundation and it aims to introduce and experiment with the marvelous technique of Murano glass working through the implementation of a creative project in the furnace.
Pentagram Stiftung is a Swiss private Foundation established in , whose mission is to study and promote art and design in the 20th and 21st centuries that feature glass as their main medium, it aims to reappraise the importance of glass, especially in the art and history of Venice, as well as that of high-standard and innovative glassmaking in the contemporary art and design worlds. The commission has chosen to award artist Cecil Kemperink because we believe that during the residency she can enrich in a decisive way the poetics of her work through the use of glass, opening new expressive possibilities for her artistic research.
Supported by the expertise of the glass master craftsman, the artist will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the strengths and weaknesses of the material and continue her creation. The artistic screen printing studio Fallani Venezia, the space dedicated to culture and research of Gruppofallani, was founded in the late Sixties by Fiorenzo Fallani. In almost fifty years of activity, over three hundred artists from around the world have worked and made over a thousand different graphics. In recent years, besides continuing the tradition of printing for artists, galleries and publishers, this space has opened to a larger public, by offering different kinds of workshops, both for those approaching this printing technique for the first time, and for artists who want to "get their hands dirty" and work with us in the making of their work with opportunities designed especially for them.
This year we award a range of different styles and techniques of expression, focusing on the ones that seem to offer more stimuli and greater potential for experimentation with the screen printing technique. Therefore we will try to make Nelson's highly graphic images interact with Baassiri's more "traditional" and material brushstroke, passing through painting that becomes almost illustration in Pedizzi's works. As always, the intent is to create exchanges and contaminations among artists, in a climate of sharing, openness and collaboration, both of spaces and ideas. Come galleria specializzata nell'arte contemporanea, che include un linguaggio artistico innovativo e tecniche fuori dall'ordinario diventa quindi nostro dovere sostenere e incoraggiare artisti giovani e promettenti, artisti come Maria Agureeva.
Throughout the years we find ourselves more and more facing the fact of a constantly changing world - not only in terms of economy and communication but also art and culture. The number of promising faces, galleries and art fairs spread all over the globe is growing day by day - along with that comes the difficulty for many young artists of how to persist in that overgrowth of possibilities. As a gallery specialized in contemporary art including innovative artistic language as well as extraordinary techniques it therefore becomes our duty to support and encourage young and promising artists - artists just like Maria Agureeva.
With her unique usage of synthetic materials such as latex and plastic she knows well how to create a certain connection between what is materiality and what can be seen as identity - incessantly referring to the tension between social norms and the constant pressure of meeting a standard that one has to face in a world that is shaped by stereotypes, different values and expectations - all spread and influenced through new and mass media.
With her artistic expertise and her unique complete works we consider Maria Agureeva as a very talented artist and therefore a well-deserved awardee of the Arte Laguna Prize. Galeria Fernando Santos, that is now celebrating its 25th anniversary, was the first art gallery to install on Miguel Bombarda Street, Porto, in what later become the so called Art District. The different art galleries that have settled there, present, six times a year, on the same day and at the same time, new exhibitions, thus creating unprecedented dynamics in the city.
It is in this context that Galeria Fernando Santos has been developing its activity, privileging the representation of the main Portuguese artists, in the national territory and abroad, without forgetting the promotion of promising young artists within the Art Market. The Gallery was also pleased with the disparity between materials card boxes, light ropes , as well as with the wide range of different expressions that the artist seems to have achieved in his artistic journey.
Dalla sua apertura nel , Chelouche Gallery ha mantenuto il suo primato in vari campi dell'arte. Ospita artisti giovani e affermati israeliani e internazionali, che espongono opere nelle dicipline di nuovi media, video arte, scultura, pittura, installazione e fotografia. Isa Ho Le potenti fotografie di Isa Ho presentano allo spettatore la natura ingannevole e trasformativa della memoria. Attraverso la cacofonia di oggetti che riempiono ogni fotografia, lo spettatore viene portato in un viaggio di scoperta disseminato di indizi che insieme intrecciano una storia della vita e dell'opera di ciascun artista.
Since its opening in , Chelouche Gallery has been keeping its primacy in various fields of art. It is the home of both young and established Israeli and international artists, displaying works in new media, video art, sculpture, painting, installation and photography. Isa Ho Isa Ho's powerful photographs present the viewer with the deceptive and transformational nature of memory.
Each photograph in this series portrays the inhabitants of tight-knit Westbeth Artist Housing community, highlighting a personal view into their lives. The viewer is drawn into the intimate landscape of each artist's inhabitance emphasizing the way in which art and life are inextricably linked. Ho's portraits examine the difficulties faced by an ageing society juxtaposed by the current media-obsessed and instantaneous generation to whom an overload of images and information is readily available.
Through the cacophony of objects that fill each photograph the viewer is taken on journey of discovery scattered with clues that together weave a story of each artist's life and work. Art Nova , launched in , is a high-end platform that discovers and promotes young artists, who participate in the activities of Art Nova exhibitions and forums both in China and abroad, as well as a multichannel artist promotion program.
Art Nova continues to cultivate a diverse community and a set of resources for artists, curators, academics, and collectors, while providing a means to help young artists on the path to achieving their dreams. At the same time, Art Nova coordinates many international exchange programs and exhibitions in cities worldwide. Especially, for four years the Chinese platform has been collaborating with the Arte Laguna Prize through a mutual exchange: it will host the videos of the 10 finalist artists in the competition in Beijing in The ART STAYS Festival of Contemporary Arts has for years been considered one of the most interesting summer events for the visual arts due to the strategic geographical location of the historic town where it takes place, Ptuj in Slovenia, and for the intense artistic work promoted by the directors, which is the result of synergies, research, attention to creativity and promotion of a rich cultural program.
Now in its sixteenth edition, the Festival is dedicated to the theme of human fragilities, of materials, of relationships in their different variations and languages. Her work is intensely original, made with a different language, suspended between the endless folds and forms of sculpture with a pinch of transgression and an interesting technical ability. TraVellArt is a new long-term exhibition project, curated by Paolo De Grandis in collaboration with Carlotta Scarpa and organized by PDG Arte Communications, which includes a series of exhibitions dedicated to artists working in Venice and beyond, drawing inspiration from the theme of the journey, as the exhibition venue suggests.
Miriam Nicastro's works capture glimpses, details and architectural visions that are always inhabited, where human presence, sometimes imposing and sometimes hidden, is essential to the extent that it makes a space alive and lived, constantly altering its physiognomy. Her photo shoots on the road, just momentarily stopping, tell stories to other travelers in a historic hotel in a historic square in a historic city. Zanetto is an Italian craftsmanship laboratory, dedicated to the creation of artistic objects in noble metals for the living, table decoration and real art pieces in limited edition.
U2place - Le notizie in italiano sugli U2
Founded in , the company boasts over fifty years of experience and avails itself of the most talented Italian workers in the sector, to produce innovative objects with a sophisticated design. From the wise union of the most traditional working techniques with the most original artisanal experimentations, the company creates alluring, high-quality works that can embellish every setting and satisfy those who love to surround themselves with priceless and timeless values, such as uniqueness.
Riccardo Erata was selected because the vase he designed shows that the artist has analyzed and entered into resonance with the Zanetto world: it is a form of a beauty that could be defined as classical, organic and ethereal. The work allows to highlight the abilities and the peculiar skills of Manifattura Zanetto, which is surely an element of relevance, also considering the context in which the object is presented and exhibited. The concept behind the project is interesting, together with the remarkable possibility of expanding the idea to an entire collection.

La Commissione ha tuttavia svolto un ruolo attivo nel migliorare la valutazione del fenomeno. Il quadro di valutazione comune si basa essenzialmente su strumenti armonizzati dell'UE SILC, indagine sulle forze di lavoro, ecc. Il quadro di valutazione comune contempla attualmente indicatori riferiti all'insieme delle condizioni abitative costo, disagio abitativo e sovraffollamento in base allo strumento EU-SILC.
Nell'ambito del Comitato per la protezione sociale la Commissione collabora con gli Stati membri riguardo agli scambi in materia di politica sociale ed all'elaborazione di dati ed offre idonee sedi di discussione. Il pacchetto di investimenti sociali avvalora l'impegno della Commissione inteso a migliorare l'integrazione delle questioni di politica sociale nel semestre europeo e a formulare all'occorrenza raccomandazioni specifiche per paese.
La mancanza di dati sul fenomeno dei senzatetto a livello di UE limita il numero di settori passibili di analisi approfondita. The availability of reliable data is fundamental for the development of all policy. The lack of relevant data also makes it impossible to draw up a demographic profile of homeless people or to understand how their numbers have grown as a result of the economic crisis.
The European Union statistics on income and living conditions EU-SILC do not cover situations of extreme poverty, such as those experienced by the homeless. Can the Commission therefore state when it will start to use another category of indicators inspired, for example, by the ETHOS classification as a reference? Can the Commission indicate why the joint assessment framework is based solely on the EU-SILC indicators when this instrument has been clearly proven to be inadequate when it comes to including all forms of poverty?
Can the Commission state how it intends to support the creation of such a network? Can the Commission explain how homeless people will be included in the monitoring of social protection outcomes? Given the increasingly serious phenomenon of homelessness in many Member States, can the Commission say whether it intends to include this problem among the cyclical issues analysed in the report on employment and social development in Europe? Homeless people are by definition not included in this monitoring tool. However, the Commission has been active in improving the measurement of homelessness. The Commission works together with Member States in the Social Protection Committee on social policy exchanges and data development and it provides fora for discussion.
The Social Investment Package reinforces the commitment of the Commission to further integrate social policy issues in the European Semester and launch country-specific recommendations as appropriate. The lack of data on homelessness at EU level limits the areas for in-depth analysis. Oggetto: Diritti dei cittadini europei che, esercitando il diritto di libera circolazione, diventano senza tetto in un altro Stato membro dell'UE.
Nelle precedenti interrogazioni parlamentari relative ai diritti dei senzatetto nell'UE, la Commissione aveva messo in luce le seguenti questioni:. La Carta dispone inoltre che tale principio sia applicato da istituzioni, organi, uffici ed agenzie dell'Unione e dagli Stati membri, per questi ultimi esclusivamente nell'attuazione del diritto dell'Unione. Gli Stati membri, cui primariamente compete l'attuazione di politiche abitative e di azioni a favore dei senzatetto, hanno inoltre ratificato diversi accordi internazionali che contemplano disposizioni basate sui diritti intese a promuovere l'accesso o il mantenimento dell'abitazione come presupposto per una vita dignitosa.
Gli Stati membri hanno competenza esclusiva nel determinare le condizioni di accesso alle prestazioni assistenziali. Member States are not obliged to provide social assistance to citizens from another State who a do not work for the first three months and b are in the Member State for over three months and fail to meet the residency requirements in force in the host State;. European citizens may be expelled from the host State if they fail to meet its residency requirements or constitute a heavy burden for its welfare system;.
A proportionality test is needed to determine in which specific cases access to emergency accommodation should be considered a heavy burden and whether a refusal to award such access is in line with the European Charter of Fundamental Rights;. The Charter also stipulates that this principle has to be applied by the institutions, bodies, offices and agencies of the Union and by the Member States, but only when they are implementing Union law. Member States — who have the main competence to implement housing and homelessness policies — also ratified a number of international agreements which contain rights-based provisions to promote access to or retention of housing as a precondition for a dignified life.
The identification of the persons who may benefit from the FEAD would be the responsibility of the Member States, as they are best placed to assess the local needs. Each Member State is solely competent to determine the conditions for access to social assistance benefits. Wie weit sind derartige Programme soweit vorhanden gediehen? Recently there have been more and more reports of a resurgence of measles and rubella in Europe. Immunisation has not yet been achieved, and the WHO has extended the deadline for the eradication of measles from to although this target will probably not be met either.
These developments are due to growing weariness and scepticism among the population about vaccinations, caused in part by too little information about the side effects of immunisations. The situation is even worse in developing countries where, on top of misinformation and rumours about the dangers of immunisation, the cost factor plays a major role.
New studies point to the central role of social media in disseminating information and raising awareness about vaccinations and this can play an important role in future in combating people's reluctance to immunise.

Protection by immunising everyone against the virus is urgently required, in particular in the light of the danger of epidemics. Is the Commission aware of the problem set out above, in particular the situation in developing countries? If applicable, to what extent have such programmes been successful?
Are there any plans to increase the immunisation rate among young and old people in particular, by linking social security benefits to vaccinations, for example? The Commission is aware of the situation of measles outbreaks in the European Union and of the particularly concerning situation in developing countries, especially in Africa. These organisations have developed strategic plans that include elements of awareness raising campaigns.
Vaccination, as well as social security measures at national level, are competences of the national public health authorities. Wenn nicht, sind derartige Programme bzw. Entsprechend hat sich die Kommission noch nicht eingehend mit der Frage der Lobbyarbeit an Schulen befasst.
Speziell auf diese Problematik ausgerichtete EU-Programme gibt es nicht. Die Kommission hat derzeit nicht die Absicht, Programme dieser Art aufzulegen oder Datenbanken zur Bewertung von Lehrmaterial einzurichten. Lobbying in schools is becoming an increasingly urgent problem: firms and lobby associations provide teaching and educational materials, project days, training courses and similar benefits at no cost. One-sided, incorrect and biased information is thus imparted in the school setting, often without the pupils being made aware of the subjective way in which it is conveyed.
Financial support is not disclosed and content is taken over uncritically. If so, are there already EU-wide programmes in existence that aim to educate about lobbying and monitor it? Are there already plans at EU level to set up databanks to assess teaching materials? The Commission acts in support of Member States' policies through its programme actions and by facilitating policy exchanges and peer learning on issues of mutual interest.
Accordingly, the Commission has not studied in detail the issue of lobbying in schools. There are no EU programmes dealing specifically with this issue. The Commission has no plans to start programmes of this kind, nor to set up databanks to assess teaching materials. Dieser Ansatz wurde bei Erstellung der wirtschaftlichen Anpassungsprogramme verfolgt. There are increasing reports of austerity measures introduced during the financial and economic crisis now violating the fundamental rights of citizens and their right to equal treatment.
This is questionable in the extreme, particularly in a Union based on respect for human rights. Are there any specific measures which focus particularly on the civil and human rights of EU citizens hit by the crisis? The Commission has been calling for a differentiated, growth-friendly fiscal consolidation, as explained in the Annual Growth Survey of This means considering the social impacts and a more effective protection for the most vulnerable. This approach was followed when designing economic adjustment programmes.
The Commission also plans to launch a pilot project on the protection of the right to housing in the context of evictions in the second half of The directive, once formally adopted, will apply to new credit agreements. Studies, waaronder het PROSPER-project dat werd gefinancierd door de Europese Commissie, tonen aan dat het gebruik van ISA Intelligent Speed Adaptation, een techniek waarbij de bestuurder wordt ondersteund om de juiste snelheid aan te houden de verkeersveiligheid sterk verhoogt. De beschikbaarheid van en toegang tot snelheidsinformatie zijn cruciaal voor de implementatie van deze systemen.
Bovendien is samenwerking tussen de lidstaten noodzakelijk om technische, wettelijke en beleidsmatige belemmeringen te verhinderen.

De Europese Commissie heeft geen aanbevelingen aan de lidstaten gedaan op basis van deze verslagen omdat er momenteel een onderzoek naar snelheidsbegrenzers wordt uitgevoerd. The availability of speed information, and access to it, are crucial for the implementation of these systems. Moreover, cooperation between Member States is needed in order to prevent technical, legal and policy-based obstacles from arising.
The European Commission has not made any recommendations to the Member States on the basis of these reports since a study on speed limitation devices is currently being carried out. According to the Alianza por la Unidad del Campo Countryside Unity Alliance , the Spanish farming sector that suffered the most in was the dairy sector. This was the first year in which one kilo of feed cost more than one litre of milk. Moreover, Spanish farmers claim that, on average, they are paid four cents less per litre of milk than farmers in France. Faced with this problem, in Cantabria the initiative was taken to appoint a mediator between dairy farmers and the industry when concluding purchase and sale agreements in the dairy sector.
However, dairy farmers have said that the mediator is useless because the industry is still dictating prices. As I have already asked the Commission twice in the last year, why has it not yet mobilised aid for the sector in view of the collapse in milk prices? Is it planning to take other kinds of measures to rectify market imbalances in this sector? According to the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, the minimum monthly milk price in Cantabria in was The adjustment in milk price levels observed in the first half of , following a high production season, is already over.
Moreover, although market mechanisms were available for operators during this period, their use was rather limited only 1. Apart from what has already been foreseen in the legal proposals for the CAP after in terms of support for the milk sector, the Commission is currently running a prospective study on the most likely evolution of the milk sector in a quota-free environment, comprising, among other subjects, the capacity of the European milk sector to address market imbalances.
Regional Advisory Councils RACs play a vital role in the implementation of the common fisheries policy by providing a forum through which stakeholders can submit their own recommendations. A Council decision adopted in lays down strict rules governing the establishment and functioning of RACs. These rules are sometimes disregarded, however. In the case of the Regional Advisory Council for the Mediterranean RAC MED , some stakeholders have raised the issue of professional organisations or associations being denied membership or having their membership cancelled.
What is more, all the stakeholders represented in the secretariat and the presidency come from one single Member State. The following questions seek to determine whether the Commission plans to ensure that the rules governing RACs are properly enforced:.
Has the Commission recently scrutinised the way in which RACs apply their rules of procedure, in particular in order to satisfy itself that they do not give undue weight to the specific interests of any one stakeholder? Given that the Commission is an impartial institution whose role is to safeguard the common interest, is it present as an observer when the RACs elect their chairs, so that it can be sure that the election process is fair and consistent with fundamental democratic principles?
Does the Commission oversee the use of funds in the context of the management of the RACs in order to satisfy itself that spending is justified and that funds are disbursed fairly? Does the Commission see a need to ensure that the composition of the bureaux accurately reflects the makeup of the RACs?
It is indeed important to ensure that the interests of all stakeholders are duly represented. The current rules specify that in the general assembly and the executive committee of all the RACs, two thirds of the seats have to be allotted to the representatives of the fishing sector and one third to the representatives of the other interest groups affected by the common fisheries policy CFP. The reformed Common Fisheries Policy has a provision for a more balanced composition. Referring to the Mediterranean RAC, the Commission is currently looking into the complaints received, concerning the functioning of the MEDRAC to verify that the current composition rules are respected.
The Commission also has concerns about the representativity of the current Mediterranean RAC composition. The Commission is undertaking an initiative towards a more balanced composition through the opening of the procedures for new admittances to ensure geographical representation and the presence of small scale vessel owners.
Oggetto: Deficit di bilancio di Roma Capitale. The Honourable Member of the European Parliament refers to monitoring the budgetary situation of an Italian local authority, which falls under national responsibility. In Denmark the draft intercalibration decision was sent for consultation with Danish stakeholders and businesses with a view to enhancing the democratic input. It is normal practice for draft decisions to be sent for consultation in Denmark.
It also highlights that ECOSTAT's work in relation to that decision commenced well before the vote on the final draft version of that decision. Een voorbeeld: in Noorwegen, waar in een verplicht quotum werd ingevoerd, hebben bedrijven een waardedaling ondergaan — zo blijkt uit onderzoek van de Universiteit van Michigan. Hoe beoordeelt zij dit?
Verandert dit de positieve houding van de Commissie ten opzichte van vrouwenquota? Of is zij wellicht voornemens de bedrijven, die ten gevolge van vrouwenquota waardedaling ondergaan, te compenseren? Zij heeft nota genomen van al het beschikbare onderzoek. De Noorse situatie wordt in detail beoordeeld in de effectenbeoordeling en bijlage 9 daarbij. Deze bevindingen benadrukken dat het nodig is om het genderevenwicht in het bestuur van beursgenoteerde bedrijven te verbeteren, zoals in de door de Commissie voorstelde de richtlijn.

Dit voorstel zou geen vaste quota invoeren, maar een systeem dat ervoor zorgt dat de selectie van niet-uitvoerende bestuursleden uitsluitend op basis van kwalificatie gebeurt, en dat tegelijkertijd de transparantie van het selectieproces verhoogt en de toegang tot deze posities voor hooggekwalificeerde vrouwen verbetert. To take one example, in Norway, where a compulsory quota was introduced in , the value of businesses has fallen, according to a survey by the University of Michigan.
Is the Commission aware of the adverse impact of quotas for numbers of women on turnover and profits? What view does it take of this? If not, why not? How does the Commission explain the adverse impact of quotas for numbers of women on turnover and profits? Will the Commission refrain from introducing quotas for numbers of women? Or does it perhaps intend to compensate businesses whose value falls because of quotas for numbers of women?
The Commission has evaluated the impact of more gender equality on boards of listed companies very carefully in its Impact Assessment accompanying the proposal for a directive. It has taken note of all important research available. These findings underscore the need to improve the gender balance on the boards of listed companies as in the directive proposed by the Commission. This proposal would not introduce rigid quotas, but a system which would ensure the selection of non-executive board members strictly on the basis of qualification while increasing the transparency of the selection process and facilitating access to these positions for highly qualified women.
Betreft: Fatahdreiging bij vriendschappelijke voetbalwedstrijd. Fatah uitte daarop bedreigingen op internet aan de deelnemende Palestijnse jongeren. De Commissie is niet op de hoogte van bedreigingen door Fatah van deelnemers aan de voetbalwedstrijd zoals het geachte Parlementslid noemt. De Commissie weet dat leden van Fatah hun afkeuring over deze activiteit hebben kenbaar gemaakt aan de organisatoren van de voetbalwedstrijd, maar is niet op de hoogte van druk die rechtstreeks op de deelnemers zou zijn uitgeoefend.
De Commissie verstrekt geen financiering aan politieke partijen, en dus ook niet aan Fatah. De Commissie financiert projecten die worden ingediend door niet-overheidsactoren naar aanleiding van een oproep tot het indienen van voorstellen. The Jerusalem Post reports that Fatah activists are threatening young Palestinians who took part in a friendly football match between a team of young Israelis and a team of young Palestinians. The match was organised by Mifalot with financial support from the European Union. Fatah responded by issuing threats to the young Palestinian participants over the Internet.
Will the Commission monitor more strictly EU funding of Fatah and the way in which Fatah accounts for its use of that funding? The Commission is not aware of threats made by Fatah to participants in the football match referred to in the Honourable Member's question. It is however worth noting that there is a discontent among a number of Palestinian political actors with any activity that brings together Palestinians and Israelis without acknowledging or addressing the issue of the occupation. The Commission is aware that Fatah members expressed their disapproval of this activity to the organisers of the football match but is not aware of any pressure being applied directly to the participants.
Given that the Commission is not aware of the validity of the specific allegations contained in the press report, the Commission did not raise this particular issue with the Palestinian Authority. However, the Commission has met multiple stakeholders on the issue of. The Commission does not fund political parties, hence there are no EU funds allocated to Fatah. The Commission funds projects submitted by non-state actors selected through competitive calls for proposals. Can the Commission state whether it is working on any proposals in this regard, on what basis it is working and when these proposals will be ready?
One way to release savings is to promote institutional investors' financing of long-term projects such as economic and social infrastructure, not least as all parties involved benefit if such investors can better match their long-term liabilities with long-term assets. As regards SMEs, the Commission has tabled two proposals to enhance access to finance in the medium and long term. To tackle the problem of long-term financing more systematically, the Commission launched the Green Paper on the long-term financing of the European economy that explores avenues of non-bank financing of long-term projects and SMEs.
Follow-up actions will be considered based on the answers to the consultation questions. The Commission is also contributing to international task forces at the G20 and the OECD to raise government awareness internationally on the importance of long-term financing and the growing role of institutional investors. La estabilidad del sistema financiero es necesaria para facilitar los incentivos adecuados para que los inversores se comprometan a largo plazo. Can the Commission say what action it has taken or is planning to take in this regard? The first action taken by the Commission to ensure that the financial system is able to channel funds to long-term investment is to complete the reform prpgramme.
A stable financial system is necessary in order to provide the right incentives for investors to engage in the long-term. The Commission will analyse the replies received and will ensure an appropriate follow-up. In particular as concerns the prudential rules for insurers, the implementation of Solvency II is still under discussion between Parliament and Council in relation to the negotiations on the so-called Omnibus II Directive. In that context, EIOPA has recently delivered a report on long-term guarantees that should allow legislators to reach a final compromise on the text.
Furthermore, the Commission has asked EIOPA to carry out an analysis of the prudential calibration of investments in infrastructure, securitisation and venture capital. EIOPA has carried out a public consultation on the issue and is expected to deliver a report to the Commission during the summer. La 9 mai au fost confirmate 33 de decese datorate SARS. The Commission has kept Member States updated as regards the epidemiological situation and discussed possible public health measures with the Health Security Committee.
However, persons travelling to the Middle East need to be aware of the presence of MERS-CoV in this geographical area and of the small risk of infection. Although the reservoir of infection in the Middle East is unknown, other novel coronaviruses are zoonoses and have come from animal sources.
Travellers should therefore follow standard good hygiene practise and avoid contact with animals or their waste products. The EU advice will be updated as the situation evolves. This means that the official average arrears rate for this kind of retail mortgage lending is not 4. The tactic used by the banks to keep their official arrears rate down is to put off counting refinanced loans as bad debts.
The methodology applied to the figures by the inspectors includes, for example, considering all second refinancing deals as bad debts, unless the client has paid on time for 12 consecutive months. The Commission is aware of the issue of refinanced loans and their proper accounting in banks' balance sheets in Spain. The exact numerical impact of having revisited the accounting of refinanced loans on provisioning needs and capital position of banks is not yet clear. It should also be noted that the specific banks mentioned in the question revealed a capital surplus in the external stress test conducted in Hence, these banks would not necessarily have to raise capital in case of further provisioning needs.
Also for this reason, it is premature to speculate whether any further disbursement under the financial-sector programme in favour of Spanish banks would be requested or required. Whether refinanced loans should be regarded as impaired is a question of the particular facts and circumstances in each case. ESMA stressed the need for transparency and the importance of appropriate and consistent application of the recognition, measurement and disclosure principles provided within IFRS.
With regard to the Commission decision of In the context of the state aid procedure on IBRC's restructuring, the Irish authorities made a commitment that IBRC would not carry out new business during the wind-down period. However, some restricted lending activities, under strict caps and conditions, were still possible to optimise the work-out of the legacy loan book.
The Irish authorities made a commitment that IBRC would manage the legacy assets in accordance with normal commercial practice and fiduciary duties. In het licht van deze uitspraak wordt de Commissie verzocht de volgende vragen te beantwoorden:. If so, could the Commission clarify how the ECB might be engaged in reframing the proposal? If it cannot, why has the Commission not yet withdrawn its proposal? The Commission is not aware of an official ECB opinion on its Proposal for a Council Directive implementing enhanced cooperation in the area of financial transaction tax COM 71 final.
In the relevant impact assessments the Commission services came to the general conclusion that the impact of the FTT, as proposed, on the. The aim is to simplify the current rules on the marketing of seeds in order to safeguard productivity, adaptability and diversity in the agricultural and forestry sectors in Europe and to facilitate trade in seeds. This is likely to come at a cost, however, since the proposals would appear to use the goal of simplifying rules and safeguarding biodiversity as a pretext to restrict the rights of farmers to replant their own seed. If introduced, the new rules would make it more difficult for small, independent businesses to secure official approval for the varieties they want to market and restrict the circulation and exchanges of seeds among professional organisations and individual growers.
It is also unacceptable that farmers should be required to bear the cost of seed registration and checks, giving them no choice but to use seeds produced by the agri-foodstuffs industry and leaving them dependent not only on the seeds themselves, but also on the slew of chemicals and plant-health products that come with them.
But then perhaps this is the whole point of the exercise? It is worth remembering that plant biodiversity can be safeguarded only by fostering a real partnership between networks of farmers and agronomists who do not look at plants simply as reservoirs of DNA, but rather as living things which evolve over time by adapting to the new conditions in which they find themselves.
The Commission proposals are therefore woefully inadequate. The legislative package currently on the table is troubling for a number of reasons, as emphasised by the fact that even the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation FAO is sounding the alarm. How does the Commission intend to address these legitimate concerns? What is its response to claims that these proposals will throw open the door to the unrestricted marketing of patented plant varieties, some of which are GMOs in disguise? The future legislation does not cover the production of seed on farm for own use.
It only covers the production of seed intended for marketing with the objective to ensure the identity, health and quality of seed for its users. Exchange of seed in kind between non-professionals is excluded. A number of measures are proposed to support preservation of biodiversity and micro-enterprises.
Traditional varieties of listed species are registered under a very light, low-burden administrative regime. Micro-enterprises are exempted from variety registration fees and even can market non-registered plant reproductive material with basic rules on packaging and labelling. The Commission is not aware of any statements of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation in relation to its legislative proposal.
EUR beziffert. Der Kommissionsvorschlag, auf den die Abgeordneten Bezug nehmen, wurde von der Kommission am 7. November vorgelegt KOM endg. Euroopa Parlamendis leiab see meede kindlasti laia toetust. A questo scopo, gli Emirati Arabi Uniti dovrebbero essere inclusi nell'elenco dei paesi i cui cittadini possono entrare nello spazio Schengen senza visto allegato II del regolamento del Consiglio CE n. Gli Emirati Arabi Uniti e l'UE condividono importanti interessi politici e di sicurezza, e gli scambi commerciali e gli investimenti tra gli Emirati Arabi Uniti, da una parte, e l'Unione europea e gli Stati membri dell'UE che non fanno parte dello spazio Schengen, dall'altra, ammontano a 50 miliardi di euro.
Dodici nuovi Stati membri dell'UE andranno ad aggiungersi all'elenco attuale dei paesi europei ai cui cittadini viene rilasciato un visto all'arrivo negli Emirati Arabi Uniti. Sebbene il caso degli Emirati Arabi Uniti vada valutato esclusivamente in base al criterio del merito, il messaggio politico da parte dell'UE avrebbe comunque un impatto considerevole.
Dato che gli Emirati Arabi Uniti riuniscono tutti i criteri rilevanti e applicabili per ottenere lo status di cui all'allegato II, si ritiene che sia giunto il momento di agire. In tale proposta gli Emirati arabi uniti UAE non sono stati inclusi nell'elenco dei paesi da spostare nell'elenco positivo. AAE Predlog, ki ga navajajo poslanke in poslanci, je Komisija objavila 7.
The current list of European countries whose nationals are issued a visa upon arrival in the UAE will be extended to include a further 12 EU Member States. Furthermore, negotiations are about to be concluded which, from the end of this year, will exempt UAE citizens from visa requirements when visiting the United Kingdom. Only one other country in the region Israel is exempted from the Schengen visa requirements, and only two other Islamic countries Brunei and Malaysia are listed.
Parliament will certainly give wide support to this measure. How does the Council view the inclusion of the UAE in the ongoing revision of the list of countries whose nationals can access the Schengen area without a visa? In that proposal, the United Arab Emirates UAE have not been included in the list of countries to be transferred to the visa-free list. The proposal has been sent by the Commission to the European Parliament and to the Council and is currently still under examination.
L'altro colegislatore, il Parlamento europeo, non ha ancora reso nota la propria posizione definitiva in proposito. Il progetto di relazione del relatore non conteneva alcuna indicazione al riguardo. Qualora i due colegislatori concordassero nell'esentare i cittadini degli Emirati Arabi Uniti dall'obbligo del visto, la Commissione potrebbe fornire il suo sostegno senza per questo perdere di vista il contesto generale delle relazioni fra gli EAU e l'UE. How does the Commission view the inclusion of the UAE in the ongoing revision of the list of countries whose nationals can access the Schengen area without a visa?
The other co-legislator, the European Parliament, has not yet made known its definitive view on this issue. The rapporteur's draft report did not contain any indication in this regard. Should the UAE not be transferred in the present process, this next review will provide an opportunity to consider the UAE case again, as well as that of other countries in a similar position. The international Convention and the Optional Protocol thereto, on the basis of which the petition was submitted, is one which Hungary was among the first countries in the world to sign at the beginning of , and as a signatory state was also the first to allow the possibility of proceedings on the basis of an individual petition.
The Hungarian Helsinki Committee submitted the petition in My question is this: if Hungary independently either by legislation or via the Hungarian National Bank adopts regulations as soon as possible — which personally I would urge it to do — to the effect that all cash machines used by banks operating in Hungary must comply with uniform accessibility and infrastructure conditions and rules on service provision, does this not violate competition-neutrality between banks operating in the European Union, and does it not make an unjustified distinction between banks and financial institutions operating in Hungary, thus incurring a new risk, that of Treaty infringement proceedings?
In the context of its work on accessibility the Commission is also examining how diverging existing and planned national rules on accessibility of various goods and services, including for example cash machines, can act as obstacles in the internal market, and what should be done about it. This examination is expected to be completed by the end of Currently there is no EU legislation regulating the accessibility of cash machines used by banks. This means that there are no a priori EU requirements for national rules of this type that do exist in various Member States.
If an individual or a company complains to the Commission that a specific national rule would pose an obstacle to the free movement of goods and services in the internal market or cause a distortion of competition, the Commission can initiate its usual examination of such complaints. Die von der EU finanzierten Projekte waren von diesen rechtlichen Entwicklungen bislang nicht betroffen. From this year, biogas plants in Greece are no longer being granted financial aid.
- Lebensbilder (German Edition).
In view of the precarious economic situation in this country, withdrawal of aid, in particular for technologies of the future, is difficult to comprehend. Biogas installations in Greece receive support from the national scheme for electricity from renewable sources. While to the Commission's knowledge there have been no recent changes to the tariff levels and categories, some other legislative measures have affected, but not abolished this support.
Nel gennaio Nokia Siemens Networks, il governo italiano e le organizzazioni sindacali hanno firmato un protocollo d'intesa per potenziare i siti di ricerca e sviluppo. Nel tempo trascorso dalla data della precedente interrogazione, la situazione aziendale in genere e quella dei lavoratori non hanno registrato nessun significativo miglioramento nemmeno sul piano della chiarezza di informazioni.
Secondo il Libro verde della Commissione intitolato. Since the date of the previous question, the corporate situation in general as well as that of the employees has seen no noticeable improvement, not even as regards the clarity of information provided. However, the Commission has no powers to interfere in discussions between management and workers' representatives or in specific company's decisions but urges them to anticipate skills and training needs within companies and manage restructuring in a socially responsible way.
Following its Green Paper on. The Commission is not in a position to assess the facts or state whether a private company has or has not complied with any national provisions which serve to implement EU directives. A change in those proportions could lead to an increase or a decrease in the number of performed official controls of animal transports.
Before the Commission would consider adopting such implementing measures, it must have better and more comparable data from the Member States regarding the number and outcome of performed inspections. One of the cases involved a walrus which, due to stress caused by limited access to sunlight, died because it had ingested stones. It has also been reported that one of the dolphins died from eating the paint that was peeling off the walls of the pool. At the same time, it has been reported that the dolphins are periodically given painful endoscopies to remove all kinds of objects from their stomachs, and there have also been reports of overcrowding of animals in the same pool and the limited space they are given.
It should therefore be pointed out that such parks play absolutely no part in education or conservation. On that basis, is the Commission aware of what really happens in these centres? What protective measures does it intend to take in this regard? Does this park receive subsidies from European funds? The matters raised by the Honourable Member welfare of wild animals held in captivity are a competence of the Member States. The report recommends a review of the Water Framework Directive and the possible impacts that fracking could have, considering a ban on the use of toxic chemicals or, at least, that the exact composition of those chemicals should be disclosed.
Spain has granted fracking permits without carrying out any environmental impact assessments and under the false claim that it will pave the way for radical change in the energy sector. This would therefore automatically be in breach of the Water Framework Directive. Does the Commission believe that fracking is a technology which has been fully developed? Has it been shown to be reliable by independent bodies? Has it been established that there is no risk to people living in the regions where it is carried out? What about risks to the environment? Is shale gas a good source of energy for Europe?
The extraction of shale gas involves the loss of other natural resources, such as water resources, and clashes with European social values, such as the protection of natural areas. How does the Commission plan to deal with it? Does it think that profitability takes precedence over the right to a healthy natural environment?
Does the Commission plan to place a greater emphasis on environmentally friendly renewable energies? The Commission contacted the Spanish authorities and was informed that projects involving exploratory drilling will be subject to EIA legislation. Respuesta de la Alta Representante y Vicepresidenta Sra. Has the European External Action Service had any discussions with, or made any representations to, any members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation regarding its proposal for a UN Commission of Inquiry on abuses against the Rohingya in Burma? With regard to guaranteeing the welfare of unweaned animals, does the Commission see any other possibilities aside from the reduction of transport times for unweaned animals, so that it would not be necessary to provide them with water or food during transit, e.
The Commission may, in case of sufficient evidence of a systematic and general failure by a Member State to ensure the proper enforcement of EU legislation on transport of unweaned animals, start infringement proceedings to bring any incompliance to an end and, where necessary, may refer the case to the European Court of Justice. The report concludes that this is mainly a consequence of inadequate checks at departure.
The Commission will continue to closely monitor the situation and, in case of persistent non-compliance, will consider further actions as necessary. Instead, the Commission considers that it should focus on the proper enforcement of the existing legislation by Member States. Objet: Perspectives d'avenir pour l'emploi des jeunes.
La situation est tout aussi dramatique en Espagne, au Portugal et en Italie. The situation is no less dire in Spain, Portugal and Italy. According to Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Union, the unemployment rate among young adults in Europe now stands at In other words, a lost generation is emerging in Europe.
However, since Member States are still debating how to spend this money, the scheme will not be up and running before Can the Council confirm that Germany has offered to lend its support to those countries hardest hit by the crisis by helping them to incorporate elements of its model, which combines vocational education and training, into their national education systems?
According to reports, the German Government plans to set up a new Central Office for International Educational Cooperation at the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training, which could send advisers to the crisis-stricken countries if needed. What other initiatives does the Council have in the pipeline to help young people find jobs?
The Council is not in a position to give an opinion on plans or initiatives taken by Member States. Can the Commission confirm that Germany has offered to lend its support to those countries hardest hit by the crisis by helping them to incorporate elements of its model, which combines vocational education and training, into their national education systems? What other initiatives does the Commission have in the pipeline to help young people find jobs? With regard to the expected outcomes of ongoing bilateral cooperations, the Commission invites the honourable Member of Parliament to refer to the governments that signed the memorandum.
Oggetto: Strage di oche nei pressi dell'aeroporto di Amsterdam. La Commissione non vede alcun motivo per non condividere le conclusioni raggiunte dal tribunale dei Paesi Bassi in merito all'assenza di misure alternative che potessero, nel breve termine, condurre all'auspicata riduzione del numero di volatili. Does it not believe, therefore, that Schiphol Airport should follow the lead of many other international airports and employ modern technologies, such as radar systems designed to detect the presence of flocks of birds or sound instruments to deter them, or that it should change the crops around the airport so as to make the birds migrate peacefully, a tactic used at Heathrow Airport in London?
Under the Birds Directive. The Commission does not see a reason for disagreeing with the conclusion reached by the Dutch court on this point, that no alternative measures effectively leading to the desired reduction of numbers in the short term existed. Nel suo rapporto annuale, Amnesty International ha evidenziato i frequenti sgomberi forzati attuati in Brasile, soprattutto nella metropoli di Rio de Janeiro.
Di conseguenza, gli indigeni sono esposti a sgomberi improvvisi e perdono la loro casa senza essere a conoscenza delle alternative proposte dal governo. Sono attualmente in corso indagini per approfondire la conoscenza del fenomeno in questione? L'UE segue con la massima attenzione la questione degli sfratti, indipendentemente dal fatto che siano legati a grandi progetti infrastrutturali. Al riguardo sono state intentate diverse azioni giudiziarie dinanzi ai giudici brasiliani.
Fatta eccezione per il. In its annual report, Amnesty International has highlighted the frequent forced evictions carried out in Brazil, especially in Rio de Janeiro. Consequently, the indigenous peoples are evicted without warning and lose their homes without being aware of the alternatives offered by the government.
