  • [01] Un nouveau système de suivi pour faire face aux catastrophes naturelles : la Commission lance la phase pilote de GMES

    Les catastrophes cause naturelle et humaine qui se sont produites en Europe, en Amérique, en Asie et en Afrique ont renforcé – en liaison avec les besoins de sécurité accrus – les arguments plaidant en faveur de systèmes de suivi améliorés. La Commission européenne poursuit ses projets visant mettre en place les trois premiers services d’observation de la terre concernant la gestion des situations d'urgence, le suivi des sols et le suivi marin. Après Galileo, le GMES («Global Monitoring for Environment and Security») est devenu le second fleuron de la politique spatiale de l'UE. Il permettra de recueillir les données pertinentes, notamment en ce qui concerne la pollution de l'environnement, les inondations, les feux de forêt ou les tremblements de terre, conformément aux besoins des décideurs politiques. Le système GMES permettra de mieux anticiper et mieux gérer les situations de crise. Il pourra servir de base une politique de l'environnement fondée sur des éléments concrets et fournira les données requises en vue d’accroître les bienfaits de cette politique pour les citoyens.

    [02] Enregistrement de six dénominations de produits agricoles

    La Commission européenne a ajouté six dénominations de produits agricoles et alimentaires la liste des appellations d'origine protégées (AOP) et indications géographiques protégées (IGP). Il s'agit des produits français "Pâtes d'Alsace", "Asperges des Sables des Landes" et "Miel de Provence", enregistrés comme IGP, des dénominations italiennes "Mela Alto Adige ou Südtiroler Apfel" (comme IGP), et "Oliva Ascolana del Piceno" (comme AOP) et, pour l'Espagne, de "Jamón de Trevélez (comme IGP). Les dénominations s'ajoutent la liste d'environ 700 produits déj protégés en vertu de la législation sur la protection des indications géographiques, des appellations d'origine et des spécialités traditionnelles. Des renseignements sur les produits de qualité ainsi que la liste des dénominations protégées sont disponibles sur l'internet l'adresse : <a href="http://europa.eu.int/comm/agriculture/foodqual/quali1_fr.htm">http://europa.eu.int/comm/agriculture/foodqual/quali1_fr.htm

    [03] Launch of "European Enterprise Awards" to recognise excellence in promoting entrepreneurship

    Today, the European Commission and the UK Presidency launched the "European Enterprise Awards" on the occasion of the 'Enterprising Britain Summit' in London. These new awards recognise and reward initiatives by local and regional authorities to support entrepreneurship. They aim at raising awareness of positive enterprise activities and celebrate entrepreneurial success in developing Europe's economy. The deadline for receipt of entries at national level is 31 May, 2006 with the winners to be announced at a ceremony in November 2006.

    [04] Statement by Olli Rehn at the occasion of the meeting of political party leaders from Bosnia and Herzegovina to discuss their Constitution

    The European Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn made the following statement on 12 November : "I welcome the meeting of political party leaders from Bosnia and Herzegovina, who came to Brussels to discuss their Constitution. This is a clear sign of an emerging consensus to review the Dayton Constitution. Leaders of the country have the ownership of the process, which the European Commission is ready to facilitate. As we highlighted in our Progress Report of 9 November, it is necessary for the country to develop a functional multiethnic state to serve better its citizens and also to make progress towards European integration. Bosnia and Herzegovina is approaching a new phase of its relations with the European Union with the prospective start of negotiations on a Stabilisation and Association Agreement. We need a sound and solid partner who is able to take decisions during the negotiations and implement the Agreement later on. It is up to the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina to decide on constitutional changes. We recommend a constitutional evolution, rather than a constitutional revolution. Ten years after Dayton, it is time for Bosnia and Herzegovina to move from peace building towards state building."

    [05] "Investment in knowledge brings jobs and growth to Europe", Danuta Hübner tells Gothenburg conference

    Research projects and knowledge are the basis for growth and jobs in Europe, European Regional Policy Commissioner Danuta Hübner, noted today in Gothenburg, Sweden, during the conference 'Towards a Knowledge Society – the Nordic Experience'. Ms Hübner highlighted in her speech the central role which EU structural funds play in turning research knowledge into business ideas.
