  • [01] Seas and Oceans: European Research and Innovation in support of protecting marine eco-systems and developing sustainable maritime activities

    Research and Innovation hold a key to reconciling sometimes competing goals of sustainable economic growth and environmental preservation in sea-based activities. Within the context of the overall new integrated maritime policy and to take up on this challenge, the European Commission today adopted "A European Strategy for Marine and Maritime Research". The Strategy's objective is to overcome fragmentation of the European marine and maritime research landscape by capacity building, increased integration across traditional research sectors and increased cooperation of all actors in this area.

    [02] Aid Conference: Commission urges donors to make aid more effective to reach Millennium Development Goals

    The Commission calls on donor and developing countries to use development aid more effectively. At the eve of the High Level Ministerial Meeting in Accra/Ghana (2 – 4 September), the Commission urges governments to commit themselves to concrete and ambitious actions. Three years after the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, some progress have been made. Yet much more needs to be done to reach the UN Millennium Development Goals in 2015.
