Remarks

The GNI-based resource is an ‘additional’ resource, providing the revenue required to cover expenditure in excess of the amount yielded by traditional own resources, VAT-based payments and other revenue in any particular year. By implication, the GNI-based resource ensures that the general budget of the Union is always balanced ex ante.

The GNI call rate is determined by the additional revenue needed to finance the budgeted expenditure not covered by the other resources (VAT-based payments, traditional own resources and other revenue). Thus a call rate is applied to the GNI of each of the Member States.

The rate to be applied to the Member States’ gross national income for this financial year is 0,6402 %.

Legal basis

Remarks

In accordance with Article 18 of the Financial Regulation, the balance from each financial year, whether surplus or deficit, is entered as revenue or expenditure in the budget of the subsequent financial year.

The relevant estimates of such revenue or expenditure are entered in the budget during the budgetary procedure and, where appropriate, in a letter of amendment submitted pursuant to Article 39 of the Financial Regulation. They are drawn up in accordance with the principles set out in Article 1(1) of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 608/2014.

After the closure of the accounts for each financial year, any discrepancy in relation to the estimates is entered in the budget for the following financial year through an amending budget that must be presented by the Commission within 15 days following the submission of the provisional accounts.

A deficit is entered in Article 27 02 01 of the statement of expenditure in Section III ‘Commission’.

Remarks

These budgetary remarks are applicable to all the budget lines in this chapter.

This appropriation will be used for Horizon 2020 — the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, which covers the 2014-2020 period and brings together all existing Union research and innovation funding, including the framework programme for research, the innovation related activities of the competitiveness and innovation framework programme and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The programme shall play a central role in the implementation of the Europe 2020 flagship initiative ‘Innovation Union’ and other flagship initiatives, notably ‘A digital agenda for Europe’‘Resource-efficient Europe’ and ‘An industrial policy for the globalisation era’, as well as in the development and functioning of the European Research Area (ERA). Horizon 2020 shall contribute to building an economy based on knowledge and innovation across the whole Union by leveraging sufficient additional research, development and innovation funding. This appropriation will be used also for the completion of the previous research programmes (Seventh Framework Programme and preceding framework programmes).

This appropriation will be used in accordance with the Regulation (EU) No 1290/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2013 laying down the rules for the participation and dissemination in ‘Horizon 2020 — the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020)’ and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1906/2006 (OJ L 347, 20.12.2013, p. 81).

The contributions from the EFTA States pursuant to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, and in particular Article 82 thereof and Protocol 32 thereto, must be added to the appropriations entered in this chapter. By way of information, these amounts derive from contributions from the EFTA States entered against Article 630 of the statement of revenue, which constitute assigned revenue in accordance with points (b), (e) and (f) of Article 21(2) of the Financial Regulation; they give rise to the provision of corresponding appropriations and to implementation under the ‘European Economic Area’ Annex to this part of the statement of expenditure in this section, which forms an integral part of the general budget.

Any revenue from the contributions from candidate countries and, if applicable, the western Balkan potential candidates for participating in Union programmes entered in Item 6 031 of the statement of revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations in accordance with points (b), (e) and (f) of Article 21(2) of the Financial Regulation.

Remarks

Under this activity emphasis will be placed on resource-efficient transport (e.g. accelerating the development and deployment of a new generation of electric and other low or zero emission aircraft, vehicles and vessels) as well as on better mobility with less congestion and more safety and security (e.g. promoting integrated door-to-door transport and logistics). The focus will also be on reinforcing the competitiveness and performance of European transport manufacturing industries and related services, by, for instance, developing the next generation of innovative transport means and preparing the ground for the following one. Activities aiming at improving the understanding of transport-related socioeconomic trends and prospects, and at providing policymakers with evidence-based data and analyses will also be supported.

Remarks

In line with the general objective of the Erasmus+ programme and in particular with the objectives of the Strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training (ET 2020), as well as in support of the sustainable development of third countries in the field of higher education, this appropriation is intended to pursue the following specific objectives in the field of education and training:

to improve the level of key competences and skills with particular regard to their relevance for the labour market and contribution to a cohesive society, notably through increased opportunities for learning mobility and strengthened cooperation between the world of education and training and the world of work,

to foster quality improvements, innovation excellence and internationalisation at the level of education and training institutions, notably through enhanced transnational cooperation between education and training providers and other stakeholders,

to promote the emergence and raise awareness of a European lifelong learning area, to complement policy reforms at national level and to support the modernisation of education and training systems, notably through enhanced policy cooperation, better use of Union transparency and recognition tools and the dissemination of good practices,

to enhance the international dimension of education and training, notably through cooperation between Union and third country institutions in the field of vocational education and training (VET) and in higher education, by increasing the attractiveness of European higher education institutions and supporting the Union’s external action, including its development objectives, through the promotion of mobility and cooperation between the Union and third country higher education institutions and targeted capacity building in third countries,

to improve the teaching and learning of languages and to promote the Union’s broad linguistic diversity and intercultural awareness, including minority and endangered languages,

to support free, high-quality public education in such a way as to guarantee that no pupil is denied access to or forced to break off any level of education on economic grounds, with particular attention being paid to the first years of schooling, with a view to preventing early school-leaving and ensuring that children from the least-favoured sections of society can be fully integrated.

The contributions from the EFTA States pursuant to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, and in particular Article 82 thereof and Protocol 32 thereto, must be added to the appropriations entered in this item. By way of information, these amounts derive from contributions from the EFTA States entered against Article 630 of the statement of revenue, which constitute assigned revenue in accordance with points (b), (e) and (f) of Article 21(2) of the Financial Regulation; they give rise to the provision of corresponding appropriations and to implementation under the ‘European Economic Area’ Annex to this part of the statement of expenditure in this section, which forms an integral part of the general budget.

Any revenue from the contributions from candidate countries and, if applicable, the Western Balkan potential candidates for participating in Union programmes entered in Item 6 031 of the statement of revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations, according to the same ratio as between the amount authorised for expenditure on administrative management and the total appropriations entered for the programme, in accordance with points (b), (e) and (f) of Article 21(2) of the Financial Regulation.

Any revenue from the contributions from the countries of the European neighbourhood area in accordance with the procedures defined with those countries following the framework Agreements providing for their participation in Union programmes as entered in Item 6 033 of the statement of revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations, according to the same ratio as between the amount authorised for expenditure on administrative management and the total appropriations entered for the programme, in accordance with points (b), (e) and (f) of Article 21(2) of the Financial Regulation.

Any revenue from the contribution from the Swiss Confederation for participating in Union programmes entered under Item 6 033 of the statement of revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations, in accordance with points (b), (e) and (f) of Article 21(2) of the Financial Regulation.

Any repayment from financial instruments pursuant to Article 209(3) of the Financial Regulation, including capital repayments, guarantees released, and repayment of the principal of loans, paid back to the Commission and entered in Item 6 411 of the statement of revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations in accordance with point (f) of Article 21(3) of the Financial Regulation.
