  • [01] Romano Prodi offers his condolences to Sukarnoputri Megawati

    The President of the European Commission Romano Prodi has sent the following message to the President of the Republic of Indonesia Sukarnoputri Megawati : "It is with shock and horror that I have learnt the tragic news of the bomb attacks in Bali. On this sad occasion, the Commission of the European Communities repeats its full rejection of any form of terrorism. We share your sorrow and our hearts go out to the families and loved ones the victims leave behind."

    [02] La Commission autorise Wendel et KKR à acquérir Legrand

    La Commission européenne a autorisé la société holding française Wendel Investissement et la société d'investissement de portefeuille Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Coof à acquérir le fabricant français de matériel électrique Legrand SA. L'opération découle de l'interdiction faite à Schneider en octobre 2001 d'acquérir Legrand. La Commission a examiné la cession de Legrand à Wendel et à KKR et en a conclu que l'opération ne soulèverait pas de problèmes de concurrence.

    [03] Commission clears transaction in the Swedish waste management sector

    The European Commission has cleared the proposed multiple transaction whereby SITA SA and Sydkraft AB will jointly control SITA Sverige AB and simultaneously SITA Sverige and Sydkraft AB will jointly control EcoPlus AB. The parties are active in the Swedish waste management sector in areas such as collection and disposal of ordinary waste and collection, treatment and disposal of hazardous waste. The deal presents no major overlaps or any vertical integration problems.

    [04] Research : Commission highlights the new challenges for Food and Agriculture

    The changing attitude of European society to research in food and agriculture demands that researchers pay more attention to the concerns of the public and other stakeholders. Today in Brussels, the annual Euragri conference, entitled "Science for Society Science with Society" and sponsored by the European Commission, addressed European consumers' concerns and proposed new goals, roles and rules to respond better and quicker to the needs of society. Research Commissioner Philippe Busquin presented EU initiatives in this area, and called for a European platform on plant science to be formed on the basis of a network of national research programmes. Within the forthcoming 6th EU Research Framework Programme (FP6 2003-2006), €685 million have been earmarked for food quality and safety.

    [05] Infrastructures de l'énergie et des transports en Europe : la DG Energie et Transports organise la deuxième conférence annuelle (11-13/11, Barcelone)

    La Direction Générale de l'Energie et des Transports organise du 11 au 13 novembre sa deuxième conférence annuelle à Barcelone. Réunissant des responsables d'entreprises, d'associations et de syndicats des secteurs des transports et de l'énergie, la conférence 2002 devrait constituer un forum pour un débat décisif sur les futurs réseaux d'infrastructures européens et les besoins dans ce domaine, notamment en matière de réglementation, d'interopérabilité et de financement.
