Legislative framework for the further implementation of EGNOS and Galileo Etelka BARSI-PATAKY MEP, EPP-ED Group
A strategic project Parliament position during Galileo debates: STRATEGIC PROJECT AND POLITICAL PRIORITY Galileo: first infrastructure in Europe that is built and owned commonly European engineers and developers have done a great job within the framework of ESA, and the space industry.
Difficulties and new start European system of regulations has been difficult to apply for the implementation of a common project Decision of the EU institutions: new start for the programme Deployment phase: full public funding Operational phase: possible private funding
Lessons learnt Public-private partnership: not particularly beneficial to the Community PPP that leads to mergers or consortia, thus monopoly situations should be avoided. Highly sophisticated projects present known and unknown risks, often not calculable. Galileo Concessionaire collapsed because of internal disagreement. Besides questions of financing, for the commercial success of the programme the timing is crucial. Procurement rules that lead to monopolistic market structures should be avoided.
Leadership in technology Increasing dependence of Europe upon satellite navigation services on strategic fields Europe has a technology advantage in relation to global competitors Compatibility and interoperability of the systems, networks and services of EGNOS and Galileo needs to be ensured. Standards and regulations have to be determinated by EU Main goal: market leadership Tight schedule for Europe
Public governance of the programmes European Parliament and Council: political oversight European Commission: "programme manager, assisted by a "Committee on the European GNSS Programme" GSA: assistance to the EC, Accreditation Authority, certification and market preparation ESA: prime contractor Galileo Interinstitutional Panel ("GIP"): The complexity of the programmes, the Community ownership, and Community financing needs a close cooperation between European Parliament, Council and Commission.
Public procurement Open access and fair competition throughout the industrial supply chain, including SMEs Avoiding possible abuse of dominance or long- term dependence on single suppliers Split of the infrastructure procurement into a set of six main work packages Competitive tendering of all packages and use of a single procedure
Ownership and budget Community should be owner of all tangible and intangible assets created under the programmes. Amount allocated is EUR million for the period from 1 January 2007 to 31 December 2013 This includes EUR 400 million from the 7th Research Framework Programme Member States, third countires or national organisations may provide additional funding.
Timing DEPLOYMENT PHASE: from 2008 to It shall include preparations for the exploitation phase. EXPLOITATION PHASE: set to begin at the latest upon conclusion of the deployment phase.
Security Commission manages all questions relating to the security of the systems. adopts measures laying down the main technical requirements for controlling the access to, and handling of technologies that provide security to the systems. Procedures of the Joint Action shall apply Whenever the security of the EU or its Member States may be affected by the operation of the systems.
Current tasks GIOVE-B launched on 27th April 2008 Adoption of Provisional Work Programme Call of interest (ESA) Delegation Agreement (EC+ESA) Call for tenders (ESA) Srategic framework Work programme (comitology; management procedure)
Europe: cornerstone of satellite navigation Galileo Galilei ( ), the father of astronomy, of physics, of science, in discovering the four largest satellites of Jupiter in 1610, held a dream about his discoveries. With Europe in the driving seat, Galileo has the potential to become a cornerstone of the global radio navigation positioning system of the future. Europe is opening new doors for high-technology industry development, job creation and economic growth.
