Hearing of Carlos MOEDAS (Portugal), Commissioner-designate for Research, Science and Innovation: MEPs questions & answers
Event date: 30/09/2014
On 30 September 2014, Carlos Moedas, Member designate of the EC in charge of Research, Science and Innovation, was heard by the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy of the European Parliament to test his general competences, European commitment and specific expertise related to his portfolio. He had the opportunity to make an opening statement before taking part in the question and answer session. Although the Parliament can only vote on the European Commission as a whole, a negative assessment of one of the candidates has in the past often led to the candidacy being withdrawn and replaced.
