Common minimum standards of civil procedure: European Added Value Assessment

28-11-2019

The European Added Value Assessment (EAVA) estimates whether and to what extent adoption of EU minimum standards of civil procedure could generate European added value. The European added value is quantified as a percentage reduction of the total cost of civil procedure. The total cost of civil procedure is estimated based on data on the number of civil and commercial proceedings in the EU-28 and the cost of litigation in the Member States. Based on this analysis, the EAVA estimates that introducing ...

The European Added Value Assessment (EAVA) estimates whether and to what extent adoption of EU minimum standards of civil procedure could generate European added value. The European added value is quantified as a percentage reduction of the total cost of civil procedure. The total cost of civil procedure is estimated based on data on the number of civil and commercial proceedings in the EU-28 and the cost of litigation in the Member States. Based on this analysis, the EAVA estimates that introducing EU common minimum standards of civil procedure could reduce annual costs for citizens and businesses in the European Union by as much as €4.7 to 7.9 billion per annum. The European added value could be potentially generated through reduction of fragmentation, simplification and filling gaps in the current EU procedural rules. Furthermore, EU common minimum standards would contribute towards building mutual trust between judicial authorities of different Member States. Increasing trust has the potential to enhance legal certainty and stability for citizens and businesses, further reduce uncertainty and delay costs.

What if hydrogen could help decarbonise transport?

22-11-2019

Cheap hydrogen produced with excess electricity from fluctuating renewable energy sources such as wind could help fuel-cell technology to break into the mainstream. This could at the same time further boost the competitiveness of wind and solar energy production

Geographical indications for non-agricultural products

07-11-2019

This Cost of Non-Europe report seeks to quantify the costs arising from the lack of European Union (EU) legislation protecting Geographical Indications (GIs) for non-agricultural products and to analyse the benefits foregone for citizens, businesses and Member States. The report estimates that introducing EU-wide GI protection for non-agricultural products would have an overall positive effect on trade, employment and rural development. More precisely, after approximately 20 years of implementation ...

This Cost of Non-Europe report seeks to quantify the costs arising from the lack of European Union (EU) legislation protecting Geographical Indications (GIs) for non-agricultural products and to analyse the benefits foregone for citizens, businesses and Member States. The report estimates that introducing EU-wide GI protection for non-agricultural products would have an overall positive effect on trade, employment and rural development. More precisely, after approximately 20 years of implementation, such a protection scheme would yield an overall expected increase in intra-EU trade of about 4.9-6.6 % of current exports (€37.6-50 billion) in the more relevant sectors. Expectations are that regional-level employment would rise by 0.12-0.14 % and that 284 000-338 000 new jobs would be created in the EU as a whole. The expected positive impact on rural development would materialise, among other things, through direct support for locally based high-quality producers, rural economic diversification and local producers' capacity to organise collectively.

Impact Assessment and European Added Value work during the eighth legislative term, 2014-2019

03-07-2019

The responsibility for better law-making is shared between the European Union institutions. In recent years Parliament has developed its own instruments to guarantee proper and independent assessment and to support parliamentary committees in their work. The concept of impact assessment is applied throughout the whole policy cycle – on both an ex-ante and an ex-post basis – from the design of legislation through to its implementation, evaluation and revision. The European Parliament also advocates ...

The responsibility for better law-making is shared between the European Union institutions. In recent years Parliament has developed its own instruments to guarantee proper and independent assessment and to support parliamentary committees in their work. The concept of impact assessment is applied throughout the whole policy cycle – on both an ex-ante and an ex-post basis – from the design of legislation through to its implementation, evaluation and revision. The European Parliament also advocates a proper assessment of European added value, in terms of what savings will result from a European solution and if supplementary costs would arise in the absence of a European solution. This briefing provides a look back over five years’ experience in support of better regulation for the benefit of citizens.

Cost of non-Europe in robotics and artificial intelligence

12-06-2019

Robotics is a wide and multi-faceted domain, which crosses boundaries between many economics sectors and legal disciplines. The perception of a need for some kind of Europe-wide legal framework to accompany the development of robotic and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies is growing. A harmonised EU regulatory framework concerning specifically liability and insurance regarding robotics and AI could provide greater legal certainty and promote trust. It could also stimulate greater research ...

Robotics is a wide and multi-faceted domain, which crosses boundaries between many economics sectors and legal disciplines. The perception of a need for some kind of Europe-wide legal framework to accompany the development of robotic and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies is growing. A harmonised EU regulatory framework concerning specifically liability and insurance regarding robotics and AI could provide greater legal certainty and promote trust. It could also stimulate greater research and development activity by producers and increase the speed of uptake of these two new emerging technologies by consumers, resulting in a possible positive impact in terms of GDP. Research suggests that, by 2030, EU GDP could be 0.04 % higher than it would otherwise be under the current regulatory framework.

Area of freedom, security and justice: Cost of Non-Europe

08-05-2019

Substantial progress has been made since creating an area of freedom, security and justice became a major political objective for the EU 20 years ago. Still, there is a lack of consistent monitoring and enforcement of EU values and norms as well as outstanding gaps in the EU’s framework in certain areas. These deficiencies have a significant impact at individual level, notably in terms of preventing the effective exercise of fundamental rights by EU citizens and third country nationals alike. They ...

Substantial progress has been made since creating an area of freedom, security and justice became a major political objective for the EU 20 years ago. Still, there is a lack of consistent monitoring and enforcement of EU values and norms as well as outstanding gaps in the EU’s framework in certain areas. These deficiencies have a significant impact at individual level, notably in terms of preventing the effective exercise of fundamental rights by EU citizens and third country nationals alike. They also have a negative effect on budgetary spending, growth and tax revenue, which is estimated at at least €180 billion annually, with the lack of enforcement of EU values still to be assessed in more detail. Further EU action in four main areas: 1. monitoring and enforcement; 2. the creation of safe legal pathways for migrants and asylum seekers to enter the EU; 3. ingraining a European law enforcement culture; and 4. completing the Union’s fundamental rights framework, would have significant benefits. In particular, it could allow individuals to fully enjoy their fundamental rights and make EU society more secure, open, fair and prosperous. This would also foster trust in the EU on the basis of its ability to deliver on its aims

αποσπασμα μελετης - Το ύψους 2 τρισεκατομμυρίων EUR μέρισμα της Ευρώπης: Καταγραφή του κόστους από τη μη ολοκλήρωση της Ευρώπης, 2019 24

18-04-2019

Το παρόν αποτελεί απόσπασμα μιας μελέτης που συγκεντρώνει τις τρέχουσες εργασίες ενός μακροπρόθεσμου σχεδίου για τον προσδιορισμό και την ανάλυση του «κόστους από τη μη ολοκλήρωση της Ευρώπης» σε μια σειρά τομέων πολιτικής. Η έννοια αυτή, η οποία χρησιμοποιήθηκε για πρώτη φορά από το Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινοβούλιο τη δεκαετία του 1980, χρησιμοποιείται στην παρούσα μελέτη για να προσδιοριστούν ποσοτικά τα δυνητικά οφέλη ως προς την αποτελεσματικότητας στη σημερινή ευρωπαϊκή οικονομία μέσω μιας σειράς πρωτοβουλιών ...

Το παρόν αποτελεί απόσπασμα μιας μελέτης που συγκεντρώνει τις τρέχουσες εργασίες ενός μακροπρόθεσμου σχεδίου για τον προσδιορισμό και την ανάλυση του «κόστους από τη μη ολοκλήρωση της Ευρώπης» σε μια σειρά τομέων πολιτικής. Η έννοια αυτή, η οποία χρησιμοποιήθηκε για πρώτη φορά από το Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινοβούλιο τη δεκαετία του 1980, χρησιμοποιείται στην παρούσα μελέτη για να προσδιοριστούν ποσοτικά τα δυνητικά οφέλη ως προς την αποτελεσματικότητας στη σημερινή ευρωπαϊκή οικονομία μέσω μιας σειράς πρωτοβουλιών πολιτικής που προτάθηκαν πρόσφατα από το Κοινοβούλιο – από τη διεύρυνση και την εμβάθυνση της ενιαίας ψηφιακής αγοράς έως τον συστηματικότερο συντονισμό των εθνικών και ευρωπαϊκών αμυντικών πολιτικών ή την ενίσχυση της συνεργασίας για την καταπολέμηση της εταιρικής φοροαποφυγής. Τα οφέλη αποτιμώνται κυρίως ως πρόσθετη αύξηση του ΑΕΠ ή ως ορθολογικότερη χρήση των δημόσιων πόρων. Σύμφωνα με την πλέον πρόσφατη ανάλυση τα δυνητικά οφέλη για την ευρωπαϊκή οικονομία (ΕΕ των 28) υπερβαίνουν τα 2 200 δισεκατομμύρια EUR και μπορούν να επιτευχθούν αν οι πολιτικές που προτείνει το Κοινοβούλιο σε μια σειρά συγκεκριμένων τομέων εγκριθούν από τα θεσμικά όργανα της Ένωσης και στη συνέχεια εφαρμοστούν εντός της δεκαετίας 2019-2029. Έτσι θα προέκυπτε ένα «μέρισμα ύψους δύο τρισεκατομμυρίων ευρώ», ήτοι αύξηση περίπου 14 % του συνολικού ΑΕΠ της ΕΕ (το οποίο ανήλθε σε 15,3 τρισεκατομμύρια EUR το 2017). Στόχος της μελέτης είναι να συνεισφέρει στις συνεχιζόμενες συζητήσεις σχετικά με τις πολιτικές προτεραιότητες της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης για τον επερχόμενο πενταετή θεσμικό κύκλο, από το 2019 έως το 2024.

The cost of non-Europe in the area of legal migration

14-03-2019

Further EU action in the area of legal migration could address obstacles experienced by Third Country Nationals within the European Union. Depending on the policy option pursued these options could result in up to €21,75 billion in benefits. Further gains could be made by addressing the fragmented national policies in this area, which are currently undermining ability of the EU as a whole to attract the workers and researchers it needs.
