Women in Digital

A 2013 study found that only 4 out of every 1000 female graduates in Europe go on to work in ICT-related activities. Do you feel like things have changed much since then?

The fact remains that women are under-represented at all levels in the tech sector. But this is something that we are trying to change: http://europa.eu/!JN33fN

Protecting European consumers: toys and clothing top the list of dangerous products detected in 2015

As more products from outside Europe are being bought online every day, more unsafe items are being detected in the EU. In 2015 over 2000 dangerous products triggered EU-wide alerts, 62% of which came from China.

Through our Rapid Alert System, we are working with EU Member States and businesses to ensure than unsafe goods are removed from the European market.
For example, toys containing phthalates (plastic softeners which can cause fertility problems) or clothing/fashion items with harmful heavy metals like nickel and lead.

Urban transport still accounts for a significant share of air pollution in our cities. Winners, Murcia (Spain) and Malmö (Sweden), prove that shifting to more sustainable transport is possible, without any loss of comfort. On the contrary, a greater number of transport options can save people time, keep us active and improve the quality of the air we breathe. Congratulations! http://europa.eu/!Bn37hH

The earthquake in Ecuador has caused tragic loss of life and terrible devastation. We commend the efforts of the first responders, working round the clock to save lives. The EU is supporting the international relief efforts, in humanitarian funding but also through sending rescue teams and experts to the affected areas thanks to the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. We want to thank the Member States who have offered support so far to help Ecuador at this time of need

The EU had already taken immediate steps earlier in the week, having released €1 million as initial humanitarian aid and having supported the mobilisation of urban search and rescue teams

Statement of Objections to Google on Android operating system and applications We have informed Google about our preliminary view that the company has abused its dominant position by imposing restrictions on Android device manufacturers and mobile network operators.

"We believe that Google's behaviour denies consumers a wider choice of mobile apps and services and stands in the way of innovation by other players, in breach of EU antitrust rules." said Commissioner Vestager

Google now has the opportunity to reply to our concerns.

Although Google is much better than Apple, which has been the target of EC, the allegations made against Google, if true, are enough for an investigation.

So, for me it is, ok EU, just don't stop on Google alone.

€83 million to improve conditions for refugees in Greece -the funding will be available immediately to the +United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)   +International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)  and six international NGOs. These partners will be working with Greek NGOs who have the necessary local knowledge.

We have to restore dignified living conditions for refugees and migrants in Europe as swiftly as possible. With the first projects active on the ground we are showing a concrete example of how the EU delivers on the challenges Europe faces

Ahead of the 13th round of TTIP talks which began in New York today, we have published more documents from our trade negotiations with the US: http://europa.eu/!UQ47qp

What's included?

Regulatory Cooperation, for example: one of three main pillars of the trade deal. Here is what we presented to the US in the 12th round of negotiations on this subject: http://europa.eu/!FR64cq [PDF]

These texts can be somewhat legalistic so here's a guide to our proposal: http://europa.eu/!Wk83yX [PDF]

What are the benefits of Regulatory Cooperation? Check out our explanatory note: http://europa.eu/!yx44KP [PDF]

As part of our transparency initiative, we're not only publishing the negotiating texts we've given US negotiators, we're also producing position papers and factsheets to help to bring you up to speed. Find everything here: http://europa.eu/!qp74cK

We are negotiating TTIP as openly as possible and we will make the whole text of the agreement public once negotiations have been concluded, well in advance of its signature and ratification.

#COP21 In Europe, we have already started our homework of implementing the Paris Agreement and we will continue to lead the global low-carbon economy transition. The European Union will sign the Paris Agreement on climate change on Friday 22 April in New York. We are signing up to the commitments we made in Paris.

The signing ceremony follows the adoption of the world's first universal climate change agreement by 195 countries. We look forward to having the COP21 agreement ratified and entering into force swiftly
