  • [01] Services de centres d'appels : la Commission autorise la création d'une entreprise commune entre Telexis et EDC

    La Commission européenne a autorisé Telexis (contrôlée par FIAT) et EDS à créer une entreprise commune en Italie, afin de fournir des "prestations de services en matière de centres d'appels". L'opération ne pose pas de problèmes de concurrence, puisque seule EDS fournit en Italie des services de centres d'appels en tant que sous-traitant, mais sa position est faible. Par contre, Telexis n'offre de tels services qu'au groupe Fiat.

    [02] Commission clears take-over of EZH (Netherlands) by PreussenElektra (Germany)

    The European Commission has cleared the acquisition of the Dutch electricity generation company N.V. Elektriciteitsbedrijf Zuid-Holland (EZH) by the German undertaking PreussenElektra AG, which is owned by Veba AG. The two companies' activities overlap only marginally and do not therefore threaten competition on the opening Dutch power generation market.

    [03] Commission authorises Gefco to acquire control of KN ELAN (Germany)

    The European Commission has given the go-ahead for Gefco Deutschland GmbH, based in Mörfelden, to acquire control of KN Elan GmbH & Co KG, based in Groß-Gerau. Gefco, which belongs to Peugeot S.A., and KN Elan are both haulage companies handling domestic and international freight. Their business activities overlap only in Germany. In view of the large number of relatively strong competitors, Gefco and KN Elan's market position after the merger does not give rise to any competition concerns

    [04] Commission gives conditional green light to joint venture between Siemens (Germany) and Fujitsu (Japan) to produce computer hardware

    The European Commission has authorised the creation of a full-function joint venture between Fujitsu Limited and Siemens AG. The aim of the operation is to combine Siemens' and Fujitsu's European businesses for the development, manufacture and sale of computer hardware and related products, including desktop PCs, laptops, workstations, servers and storage systems. The Commission found that the operation will not create or strengthen a dominant position. However, the clearance has been subject to the companies' compliance with certain commitments, designed to remove the risk of coordination in the market for financial workstations.

    [05] L'espace européen de la recherche s'ouvre aux chercheurs de 11 nouveaux pays

    C'est l'association avant l'adhésion : les 11 pays qui devraient rejoindre l'Union européenne (UE) au début du prochain millénaire ont signé les accords qui leur donnent plein accès au 5ème programme-cadre de recherche 1999-2002 de l'UE. Cette nouvelle étape signifie que les instituts de recherche, universités et entreprises de ces pays peuvent participer au programme exactement aux mêmes conditions que les organisations des Etats membres. La recherche est donc la première politique strictement communautaire ouverte à ces pays sur la base de contributions financières propres. Cette ouverture à l'Est signifie une extension importante de l'"espace commun de recherche" : autant pour les quelque 150.000 chercheurs des pays en voie d'adhésion que pour ceux de l'UE, ces accords signifient des possibilités et des facilités accrues pour développer des partenariats et bénéficier, mutuellement, des potentiels scientifiques et technologiques respectifs.
