Eu-Esa Framework Agreement Of 2004

[16] To the extent that the 2004 EC/ESA Framework Agreement expressly provides for article 5, paragraph 3, the following: “… [A financial contribution made by a contracting party under a particular agreement is consistent with the financial provisions applicable to that party. Under no circumstances is the European Community obliged to apply the “geographic distribution” rule of the ESEA convention.” With regard to the legal adjustments necessary for the application of the various options envisaged, with the exception of the first, which would not require adjustment, the second option seems relatively simple to apply, as it would simply require changes to the 2004 EU Framework Agreement or the conclusion of a new framework agreement. The third option,[21] would require the adoption of an EU legislative law containing the legal definitions of functions assigned to an `EU pillar`, their structure, financial needs, which are the subject of a detailed quantitative analysis of costs and benefits, and an assessment of the complex institutional and legal impact of the option concerned. It should also include necessary changes to the ESA regulatory framework. The fourth option seems to highlight the most significant difficulties in legal accommodation. In this case, ESA, in its current form, would cease to be an intergovernmental organisation and it would be necessary to create an EU agency. This would require the adoption of relevant human and financial resource provisions, including possible transitional arrangements. It is precisely because of the difficulty of reaching a political consensus in the near future that this option must be considered the least feasible in terms of its feasibility. 5.

This agreement is not intended to amend or oust previous agreements between parties that remain fully in force in accordance with their own conditions and provisions. The entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty recognised ESA`s role in the development and implementation of the EUF Article 189 European Space Policy, the third part of which stresses the need for the EU to set up a synergistic programme of activities with ESA. However, it is important to take into account the general scope of this provision, because it only provides for the creation of all the useful connections of the Union with the European Space Agency, thus leaving open the possibility of future developments, both with regard to the integration of ESA into the European institutional framework as a European Space Agency and in the run-up to EU membership of the International Agency, without the need to amend the EU treaties.
