How does the EU work and what has it ever done for me?
#21
Today the European Investment Bank approved a loan of 250 million € to Slovenia for construction of the second railway to our port Koper.

The EIB should have decided about it already in early April, but at that meeting they had to postpone many decisions because they were busy sorting out Brexit.

Allegedly today everyone supported the loan to Slovenia except Germany - because strengthening the Koper port would weaken Hamburg.

So today our Second Railway project became an EU project. Thanks to everyone (except the Germans!  Tongue  ) for solidarity. To Germans: next time we will use our veto against you. Ha!

In the week of the EU elections, the Dutch architects Rem Koolhaas and Stephan Petermann are working to create a new image of the EU, by moving it away from that of a faceless bureaucracy and considering its key achievements. With data sourced from the European commission, here are their nine reasons why EU membership, at roughly the same cost as a monthly Netflix subscription, is worth it

Europe the rule-maker nature - International journal of science - 21 May 2019

Quote:A more proactive Europe is filling a void in international scientific leadership. This has been created by the United States’ retreat from multilateralism under President Donald Trump, which affects science, as many other spheres. China is struggling to switch its emphasis from research quantity to addressing thornier issues of scientific quality, ethics and integrity. And the United Kingdom’s exit from Europe will blight its political and research systems for the next decade.

Quote:Science and innovation have not always been at the forefront of Europe’s priorities. But through its emphasis on research that is cosmopolitan, open and mission-directed, the EU is undeniably in the driving seat of global scientific governance. The next European Parliament and European Commission should ensure that research — and its good governance — remains at the top of their agendas for the next five years. This is one arena in which Europe now leads, and others follow.
