One of the topics discussed at MEU Vienna will be the Proposal for a Regulation on ESTABLISHING THE DIGITAL EUROPE PROGRAMME FOR THE PERIOD 2021 - 2027. 💻
As part of the Multiannual Financial Framework, the next long-term EU Budget, the Commission has proposed a new and innovative Digital Europe programme with a focus on investment in digital technologies and strong research in this field.
With a planned overall budget of €9.2 billion covering five key areas, its goal is to improve Europe's competitiveness in the global digital economy and increase its technological independence.
But is the proposal efficient enough? Will it provide more opportunities to shape the EU or lead to more new risks?
Debate these questions and more either as an MEP or Minister during MEU Vienna and have the chance to CHANGE the law yourself! 💪

The second topic that is going to be debated during MEU Vienna 2020 is the Proposal for a Regulation on establishing a Programme for the Environment and Climate Action (LIFE) 🌱
Part of the Multiannual Financial Framework (2021-2027), but launched in 1992, LIFE is the only EU plan entirely dedicated to environmental and climate objectives. LIFE repeals its predecessor and proposes an investment package of EUR 5.45 billion for projects striving for a clean, circular, energy-efficient, low carbon and climate-resilient economy, allocating funds to the Member States, third countries and exceptionally, legal entities, for the two key areas.
LIFE allows sharing responsibility and also promoting solidarity while developing EU environmental and climate policies! 🌱🌏
But what are the criteria required for being granted funding? What about the articles on the eligibility of third countries?
Discuss these questions and more either as an MEP or Minister during MEU Vienna and have the chance to SHAPE the law yourself! 💪
