Summer Recess of the European Institutions

Dear Readers,

During the summer break of the EU institutions, we do not expect the usual output of European regulatory documents, nor stakeholder positions. In fact, there will be a minimum output until 25 August 2017, and no official agendas.
For our subscribers, we will prepare weekly summaries between 31 Juli and 25 August, but we will only post these summaries on our IEU-MONITORING platform, after the summer break.
Enjoy the summer, and a few weeks of vacation.  We'll be back after 25 August 2017, with new insights, of course.
Best regards
Your INSIGHT EU MONITORING team
PS. Joachim will be in the United States, having a look on how to expand our presence and partnerships over there. If you want to contact him, send an e-mail to j.weidemann@ieu-monitoring.com.
