Congratulations to #NobelPrize Physics winners!

🏆 We are proud to have supported Gérard Mourou through EU funding in his outstanding work in laser physics.

High-intensity lasers are today used in medical applications such as the millions of annual corrective eye surgeries.

Gérard Mourou was leading the EU-funded International Coherent Amplification Network. The objective of this research infrastructure project was the development of a new laser system composed of thousands of fibre lasers. Such a system can transform nuclear waste, which today can 'survive' for thousands of years, into materials with much shorter live spans, ultimately alleviating the problem of nuclear waste management. → https://europa.eu/!TP38Ry

🕒 Clock-changing must stop.
We are proposing to put an end to seasonal clock changes. Member States should themselves decide whether their citizens live in summer or winter time.

This belief that “united we stand taller” is the very essence of what it means to be part of the European Union. Sharing sovereignty – when and where needed – makes each of our nation states stronger.

🇪🇺 🇯🇵 We are creating the world's largest area of safe data flows.

Personal data will be able to travel safely between EU and Japan to the benefit of both our citizens and our economies.

Each side is now going through its internal procedures towards the final adoption. For the EU, this involves obtaining an opinion from the European Data Protection Board and the green light from a committee composed of representatives of the EU Member States
