How to increase the capacity of COVID19 vaccine production

On Thursday, the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety and the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy will hold a joint meeting with pharmaceutical CEOs and the Commission to debate how to increase Coronavirus vaccine production and improve delivery.

When: Thursday @ 16:00


European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund

On Monday, the Committee on Fisheries is going to vote on the provisional inter-institutional agreement on the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF). For ECR Group Shadow Rapporteur Ruža Tomašić, now more than ever, the support from the European Union is crucial for the fisheries sector to face challenges as the Covid-19 situation, Brexit and the EU Green Deal. The Fund for the period 2021-2027 amounts to 6.1 billion EUR in current prices.

When: Monday @ 14:30

Transparency and authorisation mechanism for exports of COVID-19 vaccines

On Wednesday, the Committee on International Trade will discuss EU measures on the transparency and authorisation mechanism for exports of Covid-19 vaccines.

When: Wednesday @ 9:00

An Open, Sustainable and Assertive Trade Policy

On Wednesday, the Committee on International Trade will hold a debate on the new EU trade policy review with Valdis Dombrovskis, Executive Vice-President for “An Economy that Works for People”. The ECR Group has labelled the action-orientated approach presented by the Commission as a fresh start. An open position, avoiding the pitfalls of protectionism, taking the lead in global digital trade and a renewed emphasis on multilateralism are areas the ECR Group strongly agrees with. Trade agreements can be a leaver for sustainability and green deal ambitions, but the Commission should preserve competitiveness and create a level playing field.

When: Wednesday @ 16:45

Proposals for the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA)

Margrethe Vestager, Executive Vice-President for “A Europe Fit for the Digital Age” and Competition is going to present proposals for the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA) to the Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection on Tuesday. Whilst the ECR recognises the need for a regulation in the digital sphere, the Group at the same time has some doubts if the proposals really protect and support the freedom of speech (DSA) and enhance competitiveness in the EU (DMA).

When: Tuesday @ 9:30

From lab to life: transforming childhood, adolescent and rare cancer care

On Tuesday, Parliament’s Special Committee on Beating Cancer is going to hold a hearing on research, treatment and the care of children, adolescents and people with rare cancers.

When: Tuesday @ 13:45
