Trouble with a hotel accommodation, a flight, or purchase made abroad? If holidays turn out differently than expected, know how to exercise your rights. The ECC-Net Travel App helps consumers to cope with difficult situations on their holidays abroad and to express their consumer rights in the language of the destination country. The app is free of charge and works offline to avoid roaming fees. http://bit.ly/28PC3Hy

Using your phone subscription in another country of the EU keeps getting cheaper as EU rules have tackled excessive #roaming charges since 2007.

Keep in mind that you can be charged up to €0.05/min extra for calls made abroad, €0.0114/min for calls received, €0.02 per SMS sent and €0.05 per Mb downloaded when going online. Operators are free to offer cheaper rates, so be on the lookout for better deals!

And as of 15 June 2017, there will be no extra roaming fees in the EU!

One of the projects financed under the investment plan for Europe is the construction of a new teaching hospital
- Midland Metropolitan Hospital (MMH) - in a brown field site in Birmingham, UK.

The project aims to improve in-patient services by providing them in a single, modern purpose built hospital. 666 hospital beds and a large number of jobs to come.

More about the results (so far) of the Investment plan here: http://europa.eu/!Mn96Jf

On 23 August 1939, #Nazi Germany and the #SovietUnion signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. This marked the beginning of one of the darkest periods in the recent history of our continent, bringing with it deportation, torture and the murder of tens of millions of people.

Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis grew up in a Stalin Gulag, his family (pictured) having been deported from #Lithuania to #Siberia by Soviet Communists in June 1941. They received permission to return to Lithuania only after his mother was awarded a medal of honour in 1957 for raising five children.

Even after #WorldWarII , many Central and Eastern Europeans continued to suffer under other totalitarian or authoritarian regimes. Fortunately, young generations of Europeans today have not experienced this. But we must never take our freedoms for granted.

This is why today we mark a Europe-Wide #DayofRemembrance ‬ for the victims of all #totalitarian and #authoritarian regimes. The memory of Europe's history should nourish our commitment to stand up for our common values and principles | ‪#EUHistory‬

Electric roads to charge your car as you drive? Plugging your electric car into a charging station could become a thing of the past as researchers are developing electric roads that can charge your car while waiting at a traffic light or even on the move

This EU-funded project is part of a series of projects looking at improving the infrastructure for electric vehicles to encourage people to invest in electric transport and reduce emissions.

It addresses one of the key obstacles to the popularity of electric vehicles: so-called range anxiety – the worry about how far you can travel before your battery runs out. Wireless charging could change all that.

What do you do with old fishing nets?
Marine litter is a huge problem for countries of the Northern Periphery and Arctic region. The +CircularOcean project is pilot-testing several new uses for old fishing nets and ropes such as reinforcing concrete or other building materials like brick tiles and roof insulation.
It is supported by EU Cohesion Policy Funds: http://www.circularocean.eu/

On Wednesday 14 September 2016, the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, will deliver his State of the Union address at the +European Parliament Hemicycle.

President Juncker will take stock of achievements of the past year, present the priorities for the year ahead and set out how the European Commission will address the most pressing challenges the European Union is facing.

The State of the Union address traditionally kick-starts the dialogue with the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union (as foreseen in the Lisbon Treaty) to prepare the Commission Work Programme for 2017.

The speech will be followed by a plenary debate. Watch it live at http://ec.europa.eu/soteu and get involved by using the hashtag #SOTEU.

Need to rent a car for your vacation?
Make sure all fees – child seat, airport surcharge, refuelling, driving to a neighbouring country, different drop-off location – are included in the final price before you complete your booking.

Check the exact insurance coverage and amount of deposit. Some cheap private insurances offer better deals than car rental companies and brokers. Do not hesitate to search for them!

Introduction
The Commission is independent of national governments. Its job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole. It is headed by 28 Commissioners, 1 per country.

Description
The European Commission (EC) is the 'engine room' of the EU. It is one of 3 main EU institutions; the other two are the European Parliament (EP) and the Council (of the European Union).

The Commission prepares legislation for adoption by the Council (representing the member countries) and the Parliament (representing the citizens).

It administers the budget and the policy programmes (Agriculture, Fisheries, Research etc.) in cooperation with authorities in the member countries. The EC also services the 27 EU Commissioners.

Visit http://www.europa.eu/ if you want to learn more about the EU, or call the free service number 00 800 6789 10 11 from anywhere in the EU, they speak all 24 official languages.
