Industry, Research and Energy Committee

ABOUT THE COMMITTEE

The European Parliament’s Industry, Research and Energy Committee has a broad remit, covering everything from boosting Europe's science and research sectors to scrutinising the development of a true Energy Union.

MAIN ECR PRIORITIES

Energy security and competitiveness

ECR MEPs support the development of liberalised markets and believe that competition will drive down energy prices, benefiting households and also European industry, particularly those sectors exposed to carbon leakage. We stress the importance of diversifying our energy system and making it more flexible, and we believe the EU and its Member States should have a greater focus on harnessing our own indigenous energy sources, be it is shale gas or offshore wind.

Science and research

ECR MEPs play a leading role in promoting policies that allow our world leading scientists and researchers to cooperate with international partners and compete on the global stage. We were successful in keeping “excellence” as the key criterion for awarding EU research funding under Horizon 2020- guaranteeing support for the leading and most cutting edge of ideas. Within a smaller overall EU budget we want to see better value for money, including a greater funding for science and technology.
