European Parliament and Council reach deal on next GNSS Regulation
A provisional deal of the European Parliament and the Council on the next GNSS Regulation has been reached on 18 April paving the way for the next phase of the European GNSS programme.
"Now that the agreement on the Regulation has been reached, we have to get to work so that the outcome of the negotiations on the 2013-2020 EU budget can allow us to meet the necessary financial commitments”, Amalia Sartori MEP declared. The provisional agreement can be finally endorsed by the full Parliament only after an agreement on the budget frame (MFF) has been reached.
Interestingly, the provisional deal on the GNSS Regulation is the first legislative dossier closed under the new Multinannual Financial Framework (MFF) Regulation, serving as a predecessor for the approximately 60 dossiers on EU policies to come in 2014-2020.
