Protocol to the EU-Denmark Agreement on the criteria and mechanisms for establishing the State responsible for examining a request for asylum and 'Eurodac' (A8-0196/2019 - Ignazio Corrao)  
 

. ‒ I support the pledge to enable Denmark to participate in the law enforcement access components of Eurodac in order to support and strengthen police cooperation between the competent authorities of the Member States and those of Denmark for the prevention, detection and investigation of terrorist offences and other serious criminal offences. For the above reason I voted in favour of the report drafted by colleague Mr Corrao.

Establishing Horizon Europe – laying down its rules for participation and dissemination (A8-0401/2018 - Dan Nica)  
 

. ‒ I voted in favour of the proposed regulation which seeks to establish the Horizon Europe – Framework Programme for Research and Innovation for the period 2021-2027. It lays down the rules for participation and dissemination of results applicable to indirect actions carried out under the programme and establishes the framework for EU support for research and innovation activities.
I consider it essential to deliver scientific, technological, economic and societal impact from the European Union’s investments in research and innovation so as to strengthen the scientific and technological bases of the European Union as a whole. This is also a good perspective for research and innovation in Latvia where new technologies are needed for improved regional development.

Programme implementing Horizon Europe (A8-0410/2018 - Christian Ehler)  
 

. ‒ I voted in favour of this report containing the decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on establishing the specific programme implementing Horizon Europe – the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. I believe this programme will serve for strengthening and widening Europe’s scientific and technological base, as well as reinforcing and spreading excellence, which is particularly necessary in the Baltic countries.
