In the context of the exponential growth of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the President of the European Parliament has announced a number of measures to contain the spread of the epidemic and to safeguard Parliament's core activities.

On 2 July 2020, the Conference of Presidents updated the EP's calendar of activities.

Core activities are reduced, but maintained to ensure that the institution's legislative, budgetary, scrutiny functions together with urgent matters in the field of human rights and democracy, are continued.

Following these decisions, the next DROI Subcommittee meeting is scheduled to take place on Monday 28 September from 10.45 - 12.45. This meeting will be held remotely and in room Spinelli 1G3.
