European Commission Pressured To Add GMES Back to Long term Budget | SpaceNews.com.

Sweden, the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands and Finland act to secure the future of  GMES.

 

Aviation Week also take up the story about the ESA/EC difference of opinion. The key passage for me is:

Christophe Venet, an analyst at the Institut Francais des Relations Internationales here, asserts the EC’s decision to deny €834 million in annual operations and maintenance funding for GMES was abrupt and unexpected, given that the commission’s past support for the program has been steadfast.“It is a complete contradiction with everything the commission has published or released or officially declared on GMES in the previous years,” Venet said.
