An Aviation Strategy for Europe23 February - 22 February 2016, Brussels (DG MOVE)
The European Journalism Centre (EJC), jointly with the European Commission's Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE), invites a group of 30 journalists from the EU Member States to participate in the seminar: An Aviation Strategy for Europe, on 23 February in Brussels.
This seminar will be a good opportunity for journalists to learn about the newly adopted Aviation Strategy for Europe, an EU initiative seeking to generate growth for European business, foster innovation and let passengers profit from safer, cleaner and cheaper flights, while offering more connections. Ultimately, the Strategy will deliver directly on the Commission's policy priorities of boosting Europe's economy, strengthen its industrial base and reinforce its global leadership position.
Among others, the programme will feature:
- An on-the-record meeting with Commissioner Bulc including the possibilities for questions ;
- A working dinner with Director-General of DG MOVE, Henrik Hololei;
- Sessions exploring different aspects of the Strategy, such as international aviation agreements, drones and aviation safety and security;
- A discussion with non - EC representatives from the aviation sector.
In addition, the programme will also provide an early glimpse of EU initiatives in the area of road transport planned for the end of 2016. The initiative will improve the conditions for road transport of people and goods to operate efficiently, safely and with a minimum impact on our environment.
This seminar is specially catered for journalists from mainstream publications covering transport policies and EU affairs.
Journalists will arrive in Brussels on Monday 22 February in the afternoon and depart on Tuesday 23 February in the evening. Flights, accommodation and most meals will be taken care of and covered for by the organisers.
