  • [I] Résultats de la Commission du 21 janvier 2009 – Outcome of Commission meeting of 21 January 2009

    [01] The Commission presents the strategic goals for European maritime transport policy up to 2018 – EMBARGO 12h30 CET

    The European Commission presented today a comprehensive ten year strategy plan to promote safe, secure, clean and efficient shipping. The long-term competitiveness of European shipping and related maritime industries in world markets, and the adaptation of the entire seaborne transport system to the challenges of the 21st century are at the heart of this strategy plan.

    [02] Vers un espace européen de transport maritime sans barriers – EMBARGO 12h30 CET

    La Commission européenne a adopté aujourd'hui un plan d'actions destinées mettre en place un espace de transport maritime sans barrières en Europe. Ces actions comprennent plusieurs mesures législatives dont une proposition destinée simplifier les formalités administratives découlant des règles communautaires et des recommandations aux Etats membres pour réduire les charges administratives imposées aux entreprises de transport maritime.

    [03] State aid: Commission approves Finnish state guarantee for Kaupthing Bank

    The European Commission has approved under EC Treaty state aid rules a Finnish state guarantee accompanying a private sector arrangement to the benefit of depositors in the Finnish branch of the insolvent Kaupthing Bank. The measure guarantees the banks who ensured full compensation of Kaupthing's Finnish depositors against legal risks. The Commission found the measure to be in line with its Guidance Communication on state aid to overcome the financial crisis (see <a href="http://europa.eu/rapid/pressReleasesAction.do?reference=IP/08/1495&format=HTML&aged=0&language=EN&guiLanguage=en">IP/08/1495). In particular, the measure is necessary to preserve confidence in the financial markets and is limited to the minimum necessary to achieve this objective. The Commission therefore concluded that the scheme was an adequate means to remedy a serious disturbance of the Finnish economy and as such in line with Article 87.3.b of the EC Treaty.

    [04] Sûreté maritime: comment protéger le transport maritime contre la piraterie

    La piraterie et le vol main armée contre le transport maritime, tel est le sujet du séminaire organisé aujourd'hui par la Commission européenne pour rassembler les réflexions sur les moyens d' empêcher et, de dissuader les actes de piraterie mais aussi de se protéger et lutter contre cette menace réelle.

    [05] European Group on Ethics (EGE) asks European Commission to embed ethical principles in agriculture policies

    The European Group on Ethics (EGE) today met with Mariann Fischer Boel, the Commissioner responsible for Agriculture and Rural Development to present the main recommendations of the Group's opinion on the ethical implications of modern developments in agriculture technologies.

    [06] First arts-focused event of the European Year of Creativity and Innovation (EYCI) 2009

    The European Association of Conservatoires (AEC) and the European League of Institutes of the Arts (ELIA) organised the first arts-focused event of the European Year for Creativity & Innovation 2009 on Tuesday 20 January in Brussels. The two organisations presented a set of recommendations to EU institutions and Member States, focusing in particular on the role of arts education in the EYCI 2009 and beyond.

    [08] Förderung der sozialen Innovation - Dialog mit Präsident Barroso

    Im Anschluss an einen Workshop über soziale Innovation, den das Beratergremium für europäische Politik (BEPA) organisiert hat, führte Präsident Barroso heute in Brüssel mit Experten und Interessenvertretern weitere Gespräche zu diesem Thema. Dabei sollten neue Mittel und Wege erkundet werden, wie der Bereich „soziale Innovation“ in der erneuerten Sozialagenda stärker gefördert werden kann. Mit dieser Agenda ist der Aufbau eines sozialen Europas wieder in den politischen Mittelpunkt der Barroso-Kommission gerückt. Die Kommissare pidla und Hübner nahmen ebenfalls an dem Workshop teil.
