PURPOSE: to enable the EU to participate in the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) jointly undertaken by several Member States.

PROPOSED ACT: Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council.

ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council.

BACKGROUND: the process leading to the PRIMA Joint Programme started with the Euro-Mediterranean Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation in Barcelona in 2012. The aim is to strengthen Euro-Mediterranean cooperation in R&I as part of the broader objectives of the Union’s external policy with regard to the Southern Neighbourhood.

On 23 December 2014, a group of 19 countries of the Mediterranean Area submitted to the Commission a proposal for a Joint Programme initiative 'Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area' (PRIMA). Among these countries, 14 countries have agreed to jointly undertake the PRIMA initiative by committing financial contributions: Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal and Spain, Member States of the Union; Israel and Tunisia, third countries associated to Horizon 2020 ; Egypt, Lebanon and Morocco (third countries not associated to Horizon 2020).

With 180 million people who are considered 'water poor' , the Mediterranean area is generally characterised by high levels of hydric stress. Climate change is increasingly causing severe water shortages in the area, with major impacts on agriculture. Such shortages result in decreasing and irregular crop yields, putting additional pressure on natural resources and on the capacity to provide clean water and affordable food for the region’s inhabitants. The programme’s strategic objective is to develop the common innovative solutions for water provision and food systems that the Mediterranean region urgently needs. The programme is in line with the Communication from the Commission on establishing a new Partnership Framework with third countries under the European Agenda on Migration.

IMPACT ASSESSMENT: the option withheld is Option 2: PRIMA Joint Programme based on Article 185 TFEU which enables the EU to make provisions for its participation in research and development programmes run by several Member States, including its participation in the structures created for the implementation of those programmes.

Previous and ongoing Article 185 TFEU initiatives show that such an initiative is likely to have a high leverage effect on national public funds in a stable, long-term and integrated manner.

CONTENT: the draft decision provides for the participation of the EU in the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area ('PRIMA') jointly undertaken by Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia.

Egypt, Lebanon and Morocco shall become Participating States subject to the conclusion of international agreements with the Union setting out the terms and conditions of their participation in PRIMA. Any Member State and any country associated to Horizon 2020 may participate in PRIMA provided they contribute to its financing.

Objectives : the general objective of PRIMA is to develop the fully piloted and demonstrated common innovative solutions for water provision and food systems in the Mediterranean region , to make them more climate resilient, efficient, cost-effective and sustainable, and to contribute to solving nutrition, health, well-being and migration problems upstream.

In order to contribute to the general objective, PRIMA shall fulfil the following specific objectives:

the formulation of a stable, long-term, common strategic agenda in the area of water provision and food systems; the orientation of all national R&I programmes towards the implementation of the strategic agenda; the structural involvement of all relevant public and private sector actors in implementing the strategic agenda by pooling knowledge and financial resources to achieve the necessary critical mass; the strengthening of funding and of the implementation capabilities of all actors involved.

Implementation : in order to ensure the joint implementation of PRIMA, an implementation structure should be set up ( 'PRIMA-IS' ). The PRIMA-IS should be the recipient of the Union’s financial contribution and it should ensure the efficient implementation of PRIMA.

PRIMA activities should be in line with the objectives and research and innovation priorities of Horizon 2020 and with the general principles and conditions laid down in the Regulation establishing the 2020 Horizon framework programme.

In order to achieve the objectives of PRIMA, the PRIMA-IS should provide financial support mainly in the form of grants to participants in actions funded by the PRIMAIS. Those actions should be selected following open and competitive calls for proposals under the responsibility of the PRIMA-IS.

The PRIMA Annual Work Plans (AWP), which is subject to the approval of the Commission, will ensure consistency and coordination between all activities and their orientation towards the achievement of the operational, specific and general objectives of PRIMA. The proposal contains provisions on the monitoring, evaluation and reporting arrangements of the initiative.

BUDGETARY IMPLICATIONS: the EU contribution shall be up to EUR 200 million (in current prices) including the EFTA contribution. The EU contribution shall be made as part of the implementation of Horizon 2020.

The Participating States shall make or arrange for their national funding bodies to make financial or in kind contributions of at least EUR 200 000 000 during the period from the date of entry into force of this Decision until 31 December 2028.

PROPOSED ACT: Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council. ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council. BACKGROUND: the process leading to the PRIMA Joint Programme started with the Euro-Mediterranean Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation in Barcelona in 2012. The aim is to strengthen Euro-Mediterranean cooperation in R&I as part of the broader objectives of the Union’s external policy with regard to the Southern Neighbourhood. On 23 December 2014, a group of 19 countries of the Mediterranean Area submitted to the Commission a proposal for a Joint Programme initiative 'Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area' (PRIMA). Among these countries, 14 countries have agreed to jointly undertake the PRIMA initiative by committing financial contributions: Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal and Spain, Member States of the Union; Israel and Tunisia, third countries associated to Horizon 2020 ; Egypt, Lebanon and Morocco (third countries not associated to Horizon 2020). With 180 million people who are considered 'water poor' , the Mediterranean area is generally characterised by high levels of hydric stress. Climate change is increasingly causing severe water shortages in the area, with major impacts on agriculture. Such shortages result in decreasing and irregular crop yields, putting additional pressure on natural resources and on the capacity to provide clean water and affordable food for the region’s inhabitants. The programme’s strategic objective is to develop the common innovative solutions for water provision and food systems that the Mediterranean region urgently needs. The programme is in line with the Communication from the Commission on establishing a new Partnership Framework with third countries under the European Agenda on Migration. IMPACT ASSESSMENT: the option withheld is Option 2: PRIMA Joint Programme based on Article 185 TFEU which enables the EU to make provisions for its participation in research and development programmes run by several Member States, including its participation in the structures created for the implementation of those programmes. Previous and ongoing Article 185 TFEU initiatives show that such an initiative is likely to have a high leverage effect on national public funds in a stable, long-term and integrated manner. CONTENT: the draft decision provides for the participation of the EU in the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area ('PRIMA') jointly undertaken by Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia. Egypt, Lebanon and Morocco shall become Participating States subject to the conclusion of international agreements with the Union setting out the terms and conditions of their participation in PRIMA. Any Member State and any country associated to Horizon 2020 may participate in PRIMA provided they contribute to its financing. Objectives : the general objective of PRIMA is to develop the fully piloted and demonstrated common innovative solutions for water provision and food systems in the Mediterranean region , to make them more climate resilient, efficient, cost-effective and sustainable, and to contribute to solving nutrition, health, well-being and migration problems upstream. In order to contribute to the general objective, PRIMA shall fulfil the following specific objectives: the formulation of a stable, long-term, common strategic agenda in the area of water provision and food systems; the orientation of all national R&I programmes towards the implementation of the strategic agenda; the structural involvement of all relevant public and private sector actors in implementing the strategic agenda by pooling knowledge and financial resources to achieve the necessary critical mass; the strengthening of funding and of the implementation capabilities of all actors involved. Implementation : in order to ensure the joint implementation of PRIMA, an implementation structure should be set up ( 'PRIMA-IS' ). The PRIMA-IS should be the recipient of the Union’s financial contribution and it should ensure the efficient implementation of PRIMA. PRIMA activities should be in line with the objectives and research and innovation priorities of Horizon 2020 and with the general principles and conditions laid down in the Regulation establishing the 2020 Horizon framework programme. In order to achieve the objectives of PRIMA, the PRIMA-IS should provide financial support mainly in the form of grants to participants in actions funded by the PRIMAIS. Those actions should be selected following open and competitive calls for proposals under the responsibility of the PRIMA-IS. The PRIMA Annual Work Plans (AWP), which is subject to the approval of the Commission, will ensure consistency and coordination between all activities and their orientation towards the achievement of the operational, specific and general objectives of PRIMA. The proposal contains provisions on the monitoring, evaluation and reporting arrangements of the initiative. BUDGETARY IMPLICATIONS: the EU contribution shall be up to EUR 200 million (in current prices) including the EFTA contribution. The EU contribution shall be made as part of the implementation of Horizon 2020. The Participating States shall make or arrange for their national funding bodies to make financial or in kind contributions of at least EUR 200 000 000 during the period from the date of entry into force of this Decision until 31 December 2028.

  • The European Parliament adopted by 607 votes to 39, with 3 abstentions, a legislative resolution on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on the participation of the Union in the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) jointly undertaken by several Member States.

    The European Parliament’s position, adopted at first reading following the ordinary legislative procedure, amended the Commission proposal as follows:

    Participation in PRIMA: the Union shall participate in the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) jointly undertaken Croatia, Cyprus, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey.

    Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Morocco shall become Participating States subject to the conclusion of international agreements for scientific and technological cooperation with the Union.

    Objectives of PRIMA: in line with the priorities of Horizon 2020, the general objectives of PRIMA are to build research and innovation capacities and to develop knowledge and common innovative solutions for agro-food systems, to make them sustainable, and for integrated water provision and management in the Mediterranean area.

    PRIMA shall also contribute to solving water scarcity, food security, nutrition, health, well-being and migration problems upstream.

    Union’s financial contribution to PRIMA: this amounts to EUR 220 million and shall equal the contributions of the Participating States. It shall cover the PRIMA-IS administrative costs up to a maximum of 6% of the Union's financial contribution.

    The Union financial contribution shall be conditional upon the commitment by each Participating State to contribute to the financing of PRIMA with an adequate contribution from national resources relevant to the objectives of PRIMA.

    Activities and implementation of PRIMA: PRIMA shall support a wide range of research and innovation activities, including research, development and innovation projects, innovative demonstrators and pilot plants, capacity building, training, awareness-raising and dissemination actions, and researcher mobility, covering a wide range of technological maturity levels and respecting a balance between small and large projects.

    Implementation: in order to ensure the joint implementation of PRIMA, an implementation structure ('PRIMA-IS') shall be set up. PRIMA-IS shall be the recipient of the Union financial contribution and it shall ensure the efficient and transparent implementation of PRIMA.

    PRIMA shall be implemented on the basis of annual work plans setting out the activities to be undertaken in a given year. PRIMA-IS shall adopt the annual work plans by 31 March of the reference year, after obtaining approval from the Commission.

    PRIMA-IS shall monitor regularly the actions it funds and if necessary to undertake corrective actions by amending the annual work plan.

    Rules for participation: PRIMA-IS shall aim to provide approximately 25 % of the Union financial contribution to legal entities established in targeted third countries considered to be Participating States. PRIMA-IS shall also be able to fund beneficiaries established in a country that is not a Participating State, provided that such participation is deemed to be essential by PRIMA‑IS or if funding is provided for under an international agreement or arrangement.

    It shall make information on the implementation of the actions funded publicly available.

    Governance of PRIMA: the bodies of the PRIMA-IS shall include:

    • a Board of Trustees, which shall have a Chair and a Co-Chair;
    • a Steering Committee;
    • a Secretariat, headed by a Director;

  • The Committee on Industry, Research and Energy adopted the report by Sofia SAKORAFA (GUE/NGL, EL) on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on the participation of the Union in the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) jointly undertaken by several Member States.

    The committee recommended that the European Parliament’s position, adopted at first reading following the ordinary legislative procedure, should amend the Commission proposal as follows:

    Participation in PRIMA: the Union shall participate in the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) jointly undertaken by Cyprus, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia. Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Morocco shall become Participating States subject to the conclusion of Science and Technology international agreements with the Union.

    Objectives of PRIMA: in line with the priorities of Horizon 2020, the general objective of PRIMA is to build research and innovation capacities and to develop knowledge and common innovative solutions for sustainable agri-food systems and integrated water management in the Mediterranean region, in order to:

    • make them more climate resilient, efficient, cost-effective and environmentally and socially sustainable;
    • contribute to solving water scarcity, food security, nutrition, health, well-being and migration problems upstream.

    Union’s financial contribution to PRIMA: this amounts to EUR 200 million and shall equal the contributions of the Participating States. It shall cover the PRIMA-IS administrative costs up to a maximum of 6% of the Union's financial contribution.

    Where the financial guarantees are provided by the Participating States, each State shall be liable for a maximum amount less than or equal to its financial commitment to the PRIMA programme. The total recovery shall be limited to the maximum amount of EUR 200 million.

    Activities and implementation of PRIMA: Members stated that PRIMA shall support a wide range of research and innovation activities and actions as established in the PRIMA annual work plan, addressing a wide range of Technology Readiness Levels and ensuring an appropriate balance between small and large projects.

    PRIMA shall be implemented on the basis of annual work plans, covering activities to be launched in the period from 1 January to 31 December of a given year. The annual work plans shall be made available to the relevant programme committees for the specific programme implementing Horizon 2020. All activities supported by PRIMA shall be implemented under an authority recognised by the Union as competent for that purpose.

    Amended annual work plans of a given year and annual work plans of subsequent years shall take into account the results of previous calls for proposals. Coordination shall be sought between PRIMA and other research and innovation projects under Horizon 2020. All calls, proposals and projects shall be immediately made available on the Horizon 2020 database eCORDA. Members considered that it shall be possible to finance, under PRIMA, international organisations and entities established in a non-participating State that are not eligible for PRIMA funding, provided that certain conditions are fulfilled.

    Governance of PRIMA: the bodies of the PRIMA-IS shall include:

    • the Board of Trustees, which will have a Chair and a Co-chair;
    • the Steering Committee;
    • the Secretariat, headed by the Director;
    • the Scientific Advisory Committee.

    The PRIMA-IS shall be governed by the Board of Trustees, in which all Participating States are represented. The Board of Trustees shall ensure that the European Parliament is regularly informed and updated on the PRIMA Programme.

    The Board of Trustees shall be the decision-making body of PRIMA-IS. It shall manage the Union's financial contribution and financial contributions from the Participating States and ensure the transparency of PRIMA activities.

    • PURPOSE: to enable the EU to participate in the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) jointly undertaken by several Member States.

      PROPOSED ACT: Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council.

      ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council.

      BACKGROUND: the process leading to the PRIMA Joint Programme started with the Euro-Mediterranean Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation in Barcelona in 2012. The aim is to strengthen Euro-Mediterranean cooperation in R&I as part of the broader objectives of the Union’s external policy with regard to the Southern Neighbourhood.

      On 23 December 2014, a group of 19 countries of the Mediterranean Area submitted to the Commission a proposal for a Joint Programme initiative 'Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area' (PRIMA). Among these countries, 14 countries have agreed to jointly undertake the PRIMA initiative by committing financial contributions: Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal and Spain, Member States of the Union; Israel and Tunisia, third countries associated to Horizon 2020; Egypt, Lebanon and Morocco (third countries not associated to Horizon 2020).

      With 180 million people who are considered 'water poor', the Mediterranean area is generally characterised by high levels of hydric stress. Climate change is increasingly causing severe water shortages in the area, with major impacts on agriculture. Such shortages result in decreasing and irregular crop yields, putting additional pressure on natural resources and on the capacity to provide clean water and affordable food for the region’s inhabitants. The programme’s strategic objective is to develop the common innovative solutions for water provision and food systems that the Mediterranean region urgently needs. The programme is in line with the Communication from the Commission on establishing a new Partnership Framework with third countries under the European Agenda on Migration.

      IMPACT ASSESSMENT: the option withheld is Option 2: PRIMA Joint Programme based on Article 185 TFEU which enables the EU to make provisions for its participation in research and development programmes run by several Member States, including its participation in the structures created for the implementation of those programmes.

      Previous and ongoing Article 185 TFEU initiatives show that such an initiative is likely to have a high leverage effect on national public funds in a stable, long-term and integrated manner.

      CONTENT: the draft decision provides for the participation of the EU in the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area ('PRIMA') jointly undertaken by Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia.

      Egypt, Lebanon and Morocco shall become Participating States subject to the conclusion of international agreements with the Union setting out the terms and conditions of their participation in PRIMA.  Any Member State and any country associated to Horizon 2020 may participate in PRIMA provided they contribute to its financing.

      Objectives: the general objective of PRIMA is to develop the fully piloted and demonstrated common innovative solutions for water provision and food systems in the Mediterranean region, to make them more climate resilient, efficient, cost-effective and sustainable, and to contribute to solving nutrition, health, well-being and migration problems upstream.

      In order to contribute to the general objective, PRIMA shall fulfil the following specific objectives:

      • the formulation of a stable, long-term, common strategic  agenda in the area of water provision and food systems;
      • the orientation of all national R&I programmes towards the implementation of the strategic agenda;
      • the structural involvement of all relevant public and private sector actors in implementing the strategic agenda by pooling knowledge and financial resources to achieve the necessary critical mass;
      • the strengthening of funding and of the implementation capabilities of all actors involved.

      Implementation: in order to ensure the joint implementation of PRIMA, an implementation structure should be set up ('PRIMA-IS'). The PRIMA-IS should be the recipient of the Union’s financial contribution and it should ensure the efficient implementation of PRIMA.

      PRIMA activities should be in line with the objectives and research and innovation priorities of Horizon 2020 and with the general principles and conditions laid down in the Regulation establishing the 2020 Horizon framework programme.

      In order to achieve the objectives of PRIMA, the PRIMA-IS should provide financial support mainly in the form of grants to participants in actions funded by the PRIMAIS. Those actions should be selected following open and competitive calls for proposals under the responsibility of the PRIMA-IS. 

      The PRIMA Annual Work Plans (AWP), which is subject to the approval of the Commission, will ensure consistency and coordination between all activities and their orientation towards the achievement of the operational, specific and general objectives of PRIMA. The proposal contains provisions on the monitoring, evaluation and reporting arrangements of the initiative.

      BUDGETARY IMPLICATIONS: the EU contribution shall be up to EUR 200 million (in current prices) including the EFTA contribution. The EU contribution shall be made as part of the implementation of Horizon 2020.

      The Participating States shall make or arrange for their national funding bodies to make financial or in kind contributions of at least EUR 200 000 000 during the period from the date of entry into force of this Decision until 31 December 2028.
