The IMF said on Thursday that countries in Europe are taking the right steps to address the sovereign debt problem by clearly communicating and then implementing their fiscal reform plans. Ireland has not applied for any funding from the International Monetary Fund and its government is taking "appropriate" fiscal measures, an IMF spokeswoman said. "There have been no requests for financing support or any special request to the IMF," Caroline Atkinson, the institution's director of external relations, said today at a press conference in Washington when asked about Portugal and Ireland. "We do believe that the fiscal measures that the government has announced and is implementing and discussing in its budget are appropriate and the right thing to do given the financing and fiscal pressures in Ireland," she said. The IMF on Thursday voiced confidence in the European Union's approach to the financial crisis.

This video outlines the opportunities available to Irish researchers, SMEs and multi-national corporations for R&D funding through the Seventh Framework Programme. This programme runs until 2013. If you wish to find out further information on FP7, contact: Dr. Imelda Lambkin Enterprise Ireland +353 (0)1 727 2665 or email@example.com www.fp7ireland.com Ireland has already benefitted greatly from previous EU Framework programmes, with our third level and company-based researchers drawing down almost €200 million from the Sixth EU Framework Programme. The Seventh EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) was launched at the end of 2006 with a budget of approximately €50 billion covering the period 2007 to 2013. Under the Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation (SSTI) 2006-2013, Ireland has set a goal to become a leader in research and development and innovation. The SSTI sets a target of €400 million to be secured by Irish participants in FP7. This target was set, however, before the final structure and budgets for FP7 had been finalised. Over recent months, work has taken place to establish a set of indicators by which Irish participation in FP7 would be monitored and to propose a new, more detailed set of targets for Irish participation in the programme up to the end of 2013. Based on the work undertaken, the Cabinet Committee has agreed that the total share of EU funding to be targeted by Ireland over the lifetime ...
This video was created by the Irish delegation to the EU's 60th Anniversary Celebrations of the Schuman Declaration held over the weekend of May 9th 2010. The first screening of the video was in Scy-Chazelles, Robert Schuman's birthplace and it's first public screening in Ireland was at the European Symposium in UCC on May 18 2010. The video traces major events which linked, and continue to link, Ireland with the wider European Union with the content being split into the relevant decades. It begins in the 1970s and Ireland's first years as an EEC member before going on to document events throughout the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. The end of the video casts an eye to the future and Ireland's position within the EU as our membership continues to mature. The events documented range from the political to the cultural but all are links that bind us to Europe in some manner. The music was specially chosen by the delegation during the editing process with it being exclusively Irish in order to show a further cultural linkage and the songs are played during the decades they were recorded. For Ireland and the EU, this video is just an overview of a relationship that goes much deeper than ten minutes could possibly represent.

Exiting the Crisis Ireland, The Eurozone and the EU in 2010 About the Event: The European Economic Advisory Group (EEAG) at the Munich-based cesifo Research Group recently launched its ninth annual Report on the European Economy. The report names Ireland as one of a small group of EU countries which it says pose a real risk to the Euro Area. It emphasises in particular the fact that the Eurozone is not an optimal currency area, and the difficulties that arise for countries such as Ireland from the depreciation of contiguous currencies. At this event, Gilles Saint-Paul, chairman of the EEAG, will discuss the findings of this report and the implications for Ireland, the Eurozone and the European economy. About the Speaker: Gilles Saint-Paul is a Professor of Economics at the University of Toulouse. He is also Director of the Labour Economics Programme at CEPR, Director of the Midi Pyrénées School of Economics and a Member of the French Prime Ministers Conseil d'Analyse Économique. Prof. Saint-Paul received his phd from MIT in 1990. He has worked as a consultant for the IMF, the World Bank, the European Commission, and the British, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish governments. He has published four books and authored numerous articles, including a number of path-breaking contributions on the political economy of labour market reform. In 2007, he was awarded the Yrjö Jahnsson medal for the best European economist below 45 years of age by the European Economic Association.

Ireland's Future Energy Security Declan Murphy, Founder of the Ecology Foundation, launched the foundations latest report; Energy Security: Ireland on the Edge at a lunchtime meeting of the IIEAs working group on EU energy policy. Mr Murphy used the opportunity to highlight Irelands potential to become a hub for renewable energy development and to encourage discussion of the issues, which in his opinion are currently hindering this potential. He predicted a 20-year transition period before Ireland could expect to be a leading supplier of renewable energy to the European market and a world leader in energy services and Intellectual property in the area. Achieving Energy security will be a key factor in Irelands success or failure to achieve these aims alongside financial stability and the presence of a national vision. Exploration of the Corrib gas field was highlighted by Mr Murphy as crucial to meeting the first challenge and providing a bridging solution whilst Ireland makes the transition to a 100% renewable energy mix. He estimated that infrastructure projects on average take a generation longer than in the US, UK or France and highlighted the following obstacles which need to be overcome; Political Delays, Political Inertia, Civil Service Culture, Finance and cost per kWh, Retro-fitting the grid, Environmental opposition, Energy storage and the Risk assessment regime. He stated that progress could be made in 2010 with the achievement of the following deliverables ...
EU expert Robert Hoy brings you a detailed look at the Lisbon Treaty, its effects and the (as of taping) campaign to re-force the treaty past Irish voters. This was taped two days before the vote in Ireland--the only country out of 27 which allowed their citizens to vote on surrendering their sovereignty to the mega-socialist state that is the EU. A majority of laws today are passed on the EU level, not the national or local level; and the Lisbon Treaty strips independence from the EU countries. Mr. Hoy also discusses the plan to bring Turkey into the EU, if countries have the right to secede from the EU, and other key issues. The lessons learned from the EU is a warning to Americans to block the scheme to create a "North American Union." www.libertas.eu This is anedition of Conservative Roundtable, the nationally broadcast conservative television program hosted by Howard Phillips, and produced by The Conservative Caucus.

Nigel Farage talks about the shambolic 2nd Lisbon Referendum which passed in Ireland.
It is now the EU which controls Irish fiscal policy ! WELCOME TO SLAVERY !!!
My view of the imposed ratification of the Lisbon Treaty by the Irish. I strongly believe that the second vote in as many years on the same matter is not acceptable. I do not argue what the Lisbon Treaty stands for, I'm just making a statement that the means used were undemocratic. Please comment on what your views are on the issue. Was voting on the Lisbon Treaty by the Irish, twice, a democratic move?
DUBLIN, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Ireland's government and pro-Europe campaigners allowed themselves at best muted celebrations after a resounding popular ratification of the European Union's Lisbon Treaty. With a backdrop of severe recession and rising dole queues, and an often bitter referendum campaign, the winning side appeared more relieved than ecstatic. Government officials were careful not to appear triumphant, conscious that many of those who voted in favour of the EU reform charter ...
