Barnier soll Expertengruppen notfalls auflösen NGO: Die EU-Kommission als Geisel der Finanzindustrie Die Kommission hat keine Chance, den Finanzsektor grundlegend zu reformieren - wenn sie sich weiterhin auf Berater aus der Finanzindustrie verlässt, so der Lobby-Experte Yiorgos Vassalos im Gespräch mit EurActiv.de. Vassalos fordert die neue Kommission auf, neun beratende Gremien zu reformieren oder ganz aufzulösen, die von Konzernen dominiert seien. http://www.euractiv.de/zukunft-und-reformen/artikel/ngo-eu-kommission-is...
 
Scientific advice should be transparent, objective and independent, and there should be more science and more diverse expertise available to the European Commission’s President, a coalition of 28 international and national NGOs wrote in a letter addressed to President-elect Jean-Claude Juncker today (1).
A few observations on the debate sparked by our open letter on the position of Chief Scientific Advisor to the President of the European Commission, and on the need for proper scientific advice to EU legislators.
The position of Chief Scientific Adviser to the President of the European Commission is problematic, concentrating too much influence in one person and undermining other Commission research and assessment processes. We ask Mr Juncker, the new President of the European Commission, to scrap the position.
David Cameron's nomination of a revolving door ex-lobbyist, Jonathan Hopkin Hill, as EU commissioner is bad news for Jean-Claude Juncker's newly-stated commitment to lobby transparency.
