  • [01] Romano Prodi talks to Nelson Kirchner over phone

    On 26 June, the President of the European Commission Romano Prodi had a long and friendly telephone conversation with Nelson Kirchner, the new President of the Argentine Republic. During the conversation, President Prodi congratulated President Kirchner once more on the election results and stressed how important relations with Argentina were for the European Commission. President Prodi said he was keen to arrange a face-to-face meeting with President Kirchner as soon as possible, at which they could review relations, consider ways of improving them and discuss regional integration and cooperation projects involving the European Union and Mercosur. President Kirchner accepted the invitation warmly and reaffirmed the importance for the Argentine Republic of relations with the European Union in areas such as trade and access to the EU market. In this connection, President Prodi stressed the importance of the agreement reached yesterday on the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy. He spoke of the positive impact this would have on world trade and underlined the need for this courageous move to be matched by the United States.

    [02] Reconstitution des stocks de merlu du nord : la Commission propose un deuxième plan à long terme

    Moins de deux mois après avoir présenté une proposition de plan de reconstitution à long terme pour certains stocks de cabillaud, la Commission européenne a proposé un plan similaire visant à reconstituer le stock de merlu du nord. Le volume des captures de merlu est tel par rapport à la taille du stock disponible que ces captures mettent en péril la capacité de ce stock à se reconstituer. C'est pourquoi un plan de reconstitution, qui prévoit un taux réduit de captures, une diminution de l'effort de pêche et des mesures spécifiques de mise en œuvre, est nécessaire. Les plans de reconstitution sont conformes à la nouvelle approche décidée dans le contexte de la réforme de la politique commune de la pêche (PCP), qui remplace les mesures à court terme par des stratégies à long terme visant à promouvoir la reconstitution des stocks halieutiques et leur maintien au niveau des limites biologiques de sécurité. D'après les estimations, une durée de cinq à dix ans serait nécessaire pour atteindre l'objectif de reconstitution du stock de merlu du nord. La Commission proposera sous peu des plans de reconstitution supplémentaires pour le merlu du sud et pour certains stocks de soles et de langoustines.

    [03] The flight of ICAROS : EU satellite research project tackles urban air quality from space

    A three-year project led by the European Commission with ten partners from Greece, Germany, Hungary and Italy has developed an innovative system for monitoring and managing urban air quality and the related health risks. Results of the "ICAROS NET" technique were presented today in Budapest. ICAROS uses satellite-borne sensors to monitor the concentration of harmful particles in the air, caused by heavy industry, traffic and household heating systems. Four pilot trials of the ICAROS NET system are under way in Athens, Milan, Munich and Budapest. It is the first time that ultra-fine pollution particles have been detected from space with such accuracy and precision. Early results from the Athens pilot project are encouraging, indicating that the system is as reliable as land-based alternatives but provides better environmental information, and that environmental policy initiatives, such as reducing sulphur in diesel and introducing fuel alternatives such as natural gas, are successful in reducing pollution levels.

    [04] 2-4 October : Europe's ICT leaders look to "The Opportunities Ahead"

    "IST 2003: The Opportunities Ahead" (2-4 October, Milan) is the year's most important Information Society event organised by the European Commission to support European ICT industrial competitiveness. Today, the Commission unveiled the Conference Programme and Exhibition and announced the 20 Winners of the European IST Prize. Plenary conference sessions will feature contributions from Erkki Liikanen, Commissioner for the Information Society, Lucio Stanca, Italian Minister for Innovation and Technology, and President Roberto Formigoni of the Lombardy Region, as well as leading industry personalities.
