The single payment scheme (SPS) is financially the most important direct support scheme financed by the EU budget for agriculture. It provides for the decoupling of aid for farmers from production. Following the ‘health check’ of the common agricultural policy (CAP) in 2008, most of the amounts that had been formerly available for coupled support were integrated into the SPS. The Court observed that the Commission’s management of the integration of coupled support into the SPS was only partially effective. With a view to the new EU farm support system that will be introduced in 2015, the Court recommends that the Commission ensures a consistent implementation of CAP measures in the Member States and better enforces compliance with applicable rules and ceilings.

Access to healthcare in times of crisis
University of Nicosia Library's insight:

New in #European #Documentation Centre ( #EDC ) University of Nicosia #Library, #Cyprus “Access to #healthcare in times of #crisis”

 

In the wake of the #economic and #financial crisis, many European governments have cut spending on healthcare services. At the same time, #unemployment, financial strain and reduced prevention have increased the need for certain healthcare services, while falling disposable income has made access to healthcare more difficult for many EU households. This report identifies the groups most likely to face barriers to healthcare as a consequence of the crisis, including a number of new groups that have been generally overlooked by policymakers. It suggests a range of policy pointers, including the need to consider mitigating measures in tandem with policy reform, and suggests policymakers and service providers might consider reviewing crisis responses once financial pressures on EU Member States begin to ease

One of the aims of the common fisheries #policy (CFP) in the period up to 2013, and its funding instrument, the European Fisheries Fund (EFF), was to encourage the sustainable development of aquaculture. The Court examined whether EFF measures to develop aquaculture were well designed and implemented, and whether they delivered value for money. Overall, the Court found that effective support was not provided, as the framework to develop aquaculture at both EU and Member State level was relatively weak, and the measures actually taken did not provide sufficient results

In recent years, the EU has co-financed business incubator projects in the context of its cohesion policy with the support of the European Regional Development Fund. This is in line with the EU’s political priorities, especially in view of the Lisbon and Europe 2020 strategies of supporting the launch and development of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as they play an important role in the creation of growth and jobs. In this report, the European Court of Auditors assesses whether these business incubator projects were successful in supporting start-up SMEs

New in #European #Documentation Centre ( #EDC ) University of Nicosia #Library, #Cyprus “The European #Commission 1973-86”

 

The 13 years which saw the enlargements of the European Communities to include Denmark, Ireland and the United Kingdom on 1 January 1973, Greece on 1 January 1981 and Spain and Portugal on 1 January 1986, and the signature of the Single European Act in February 1986, are often portrayed as a period of stagnation after the hopes raised by the The Hague Summit of December 1969.

However, this volume — based on hitherto unpublished sources — shows that, despite the less propitious climate, the plans, ideas and changes initiated in the 1970s would set the scene for the fresh impetus given by the Single European Act and the upturn in the mid-1980s.

 

Twenty-two professors or researchers from 15 universities joined forces to produce this work, under the coordination of the Université Catholique de Louvain in Louvain-la-Neuve. They were granted privileged access to the Commission’s archives and were able to interview numerous former commissioners and officials who were working at the coalface at the time.
