  • [01] Eurobarometer : Are Europe's children too confident in tackling online risks?

    Can parents trust their 13 year old daughter when she surfs the web? Do they know for sure that their 11 year old son's mobile phone conversation is safe? A Commission survey of children from all over Europe has looked into how they use new media. It shows that the use of internet and mobile phones has become almost self-evident for Europe's young generation. In general, they also know the risks of using the internet and mobile phones. However, when facing trouble online, minors will ask an adult only as a last resort.

    [02] Le réseau européen des migrations : fournir des informations et des données actualisées sur les évolutions migratoires

    La Commission européenne présente aujourd'hui une proposition de décision du Conseil instituant un réseau européen des migrations (REM). Elle répond ainsi la demande formulée dans le programme de La Haye d'assurer la "fourniture efficace d'informations et de données actualisées sur toutes les évolutions migratoires pertinentes", et de contribuer ce que, dans le contexte d'une politique européenne commune de l'immigration et de l'asile en cours d'élaboration, les politiques soient élaborées et les décisions soient prises en connaissance de cause.

    [03] Commission approves proposed acquisition of Lanxess by the INEOS Group

    The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of the thermoplastic engineering business ("The Business") of the German company Lanxess by INEOS, a UK based group involved in intermediate and speciality chemicals. The Commission concluded that the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the EEA or any substantial part of it.

    [04] Commission clears acquisition of DRH by RREEF and Monterey

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of joint control of Deutsche Raststätten Holding (DRH) of Germany by the fund RREEF Two Lux (Luxembourg), ultimately managed by Deutsche Bank, and Monterey Capital IV S. .r.l. (Monterey) of Luxembourg. Deutsche Bank is active in banking, financial and related services worldwide. Monterey is a private equity investor, active worldwide. DRH runs and leases motorway service stations in Germany. The operation was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.

    [05] World Water Week : reviewing water use in a changing world

    The 2007 edition of World Water Week taking place from 12 to 18 August in Stockholm will focus on the sustainable use of water resources in a rapidly changing world plagued by the effects of climate change. This event has been held annually since 1991 and is an important arena for members of the private and public sectors and of civil society to discuss how water resources are used around the world and what actions are required to resolve such challenges. During the conference the EU will present its research achievements in the field of Integrated Water Resources Management. The European Research Framework Programme funds research in water management for the developing world. The EU has spent over €130 million under the Sixth Framework Programme for Research (2002-2006) on Integrated Water Research Management projects focusing on the developing world. Many of these projects twin organisations from European river basins with those from Africa, the Mediterranean, Latin America, and Asia. By sharing scientific knowledge and best practices in management of river basins, effective measures are promoted to alleviate poverty. For the European Union, the aim is to move towards a water-efficient and water- saving economy. In July 2007, the Commission raised a number of issues to be taken into account. At the heart of these policy options is the need to reduce the amount of water used in Europe and to better manage water resources available on the continent. As climate change could deteriorate the already worrying water situation in Europe, the Commission made policy proposals in January 2007 designed to combat the further development of climate change and recently presented policy options for adapting to climate change.
