11-06-2020 09:00 - CONT Public Hearing: Implementation of EU funds

Kuulamine - CONT
Risk Management

CONT Committee is organising a public hearing entitled 'Implementation of EU funds: towards more effective management and control systems under shared management'. This public hearing will focus on prevention and ex-post tools and on roles of different actors on Member States and EU levels in the response to shortcomings in the shared management. Provisional speakers include representatives from the Commission, the European Court of Auditors, an NGO, and from national authorities.


Over 4,000 potentially fraudulent irregularities affecting the EU's financial interests were identified between 2013 and 2017. These represented almost €1.5 billion of EU support, 72% of which concerned cohesion policy, including the European Regional Development Fund, the Cohesion Fund and the European Social Fund. Responsibility for fighting fraud in these areas of shared management lies primarily with the Member States.

The use of risk assessment tools should become mandatory. Fraud risk assessment should involve relevant external actors to make it more robust. Besides, conditionality for EU funding will be an important point on the agenda of the new Commission and it is very important to invite experts that can bring forward concrete proposals on how this aim could be achieved. Still, the European Public Prosecutor's Office (EPPO) should become operational by the end of 2020; however, as an enhanced cooperation tool, only 22 Member States have so far agreed to participate.

Seminar - STOA
REF. 20200526PHT79811


Please follow this link to watch the live webstream of this event.


In the digital age, citizens need to manage a range of online identities that are linked, in different ways, to their offline identity. In managing these identities and entering into agreements, citizens navigate a complex legal and technical infrastructure. As digital identities become increasingly important, it is worth considering how this infrastructure can be made more trustworthy, empowering users while increasing the availability of data and ensuring citizens' safety and privacy. This roundtable discussion will examine novel technologies and cutting-edge ideas about how to build such a trust infrastructure, including public policies, legal frameworks, business models and technical standards. This Roundtable is organised in cooperation with ELONTech and the IoT Council in the context of the work on identity of the Strategy Team of Next Generation Internet, a European Commission initiative to reimagine and reengineer the internet for the third millennium and beyond.

Muu sündmus - EPRS
EPRS Book Talk - 3 July 2020

Professor Anu Bradford will talk about her new book, ‘The Brussels Effect: How Europe rules the world’ (2020), which analyses the EU’s growing ability to shape global markets through standard-setting. She argues that, without resort to international institutions or other nations’ formal agreement, the EU has been gradually acquiring and exercising the ability to influence the global economic environment resulting in a ‘Europeanisation’ of important aspects of global commerce.

Kodukorra artikli 193 alusel võib parlamendikomisjon korraldada ekspertide osavõtul kuulamisi, kui see on vajalik komisjoni tööks teatud valdkondades. Kuulamisi võivad ühiselt korraldada ka kaks või enam parlamendikomisjoni. Enamik komisjone korraldab kuulamisi korrapäraselt, kuna need võimaldavad ekspertidega konsulteerida ja pidada arutelusid tähtsatel teemadel. Siin lehel on kogu olemasolev teave kuulamiste kohta, sealhulgas kavad, teadaanded ja sõnavõtud.


Seminare viivad läbi poliitikaosakonnad ja nende korraldamine toimub kooskõlas finantsmääruse sätetega. Need ei ole tingimata avalikud üritused, kuid need võivad toimuda komisjoni koosoleku ajal.

Seminarid annavad parlamendiliikmetele võimaluse esitada ekspertidele küsimusi ja vahetada nendega arvamusi teemadel, mis on seotud parlamendi tegevusega või pakuvad hetkel huvi.
