*Reims/RoF Annual Congress - Tau Palace/Angelo Marcopolo/- Final Decisions have not yet been taken, on Crucial, Long-Term, Strategic Choices concerning Funds for High-Tech Projects in Strasbourg region's "Competitivity Pole", said, in Substance, the Prime Minister of France, Manuel Valls, in Reply to a relevant "Eurofora"s Question, during an exceptional Gathering, at en extension of the Historic Cathedral of Reims, in Tau Palace, organized this Evening by the New President of the 18 Regions of France's union, Philippe Richert from Strasbourg, (recently Elected President of the New, "Greater East" Region of Alsace, Lorraine and Champagne-Ardennes).

Most Interestingly, Valls, (who spoke to "Eurofora" Tonight, shortly After a Recent Important Collective Meeting with Universitarians and Private sector Big Companies, etc, in Strasbourg's "International Space University" : See our relevant NewsReport at ....),  did Not Exclude at all that, perhaps, a Chance for a Fresh, New Look, might, eventualy, be given on such a Crucial and Long-Term issue, at least on some Controversial aspects of the overall Deal, especially After several, Converging, more Recent Changes and Developments, concerning Both Strasbourg's Local "Euro-Metropole", the latest Regional Reform and Elections, as well as some partialy relevant New Projects also on Trans-Border Cooperation, between certain Important European Countries' neighbouring Regions, among the 5 EU-core States which have Now become closely inter-Linked by Common Borders at the New, "Greater East" Strasbourg's Region, which brings Together France, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Belgium, (See., f.ex. : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/newstrasbourgbigregionprefect.html).


Inded, the French Prime Minister revealed to "Eurofora", first, that Final Decisions on that matter have Not Yet been Taken by the National Government, and, (after Carefuly asking us for more Concrete Details to Clarify the main point at issue), he Concluded by Pointing at a possibility for more relevant Debates, Proposals, Compromises, etc.,  in forthcoming Decisions, on which he appeared ready to Speak and Work, Together also with President Richert, (who was also actively Present at that Earlier Collective Gathering on High-Tech Projects' long-term Funding in Strasbourg : See "Eurofora"s NewsReport from ISU, at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/frenchprimeministeroninnovationprojects.html ), already from "Tomorrow", as he told us, i.e. on Wednesday, September 29, 2016 Annual "Regions of France"'s Convention's Plenary session, here in Reims, where he has been Invited as Key-note Speaker.

One among those Pending, Controversial Issues, is also the Fact that, by Focusing Only on some Bio-Tech. projects, including, particularly, Genetics, Implants, etc, with an almost Total Exclusion of all Other areas of Science and Modern Technologies, (even some particularly linked to Strasbourg's well-known status as also "a European Capital", since it has the Chance to Host both PanEuropean CoE's HeadQuarters, as well as EU Parliament's full Week-long Plenary Sessions each Month, ECHR, EU-Ombudsman, Shengen area's Secretariat, EUROCORPS, etc), that ISU Meeting discussions appeared Needing at least to Examine also certain other, Partialy Alternative Projects' possible Choices, in order to Strengthen Strasbourg area's "Competitivity Pole", in a more Relevant, Inclusive and Balanced way.


This also Matches the Fact that, Meanwhile, the University of Strasbourg has Decided to Change his President, since its 1st and Long-term Head, Professor Alain Beretz, a Pharmacologist Expert, ended his Mandate, passing the hand to his Collegue (and fomerly 1s Vice-President, in Beretz's Team), Professor Deneken, a Theologian, (Comp. various, old and recent, Beretz and Deneken's Replies to "Eurofora"s Questions at several Press Conferencies, f.ex., also at: ....+ ...).

In Addition, France, Germany and Switzerland have also Launched, Recently in Strasbourg, in the presence of the Competent EU Commissioner in charge of Scientific Research, a Pioneer and comprehensive Project by Creating Together the 1st "Euro-Campus" in History, which aims to Unite the InfraStructures, as well as Open a Way for Joint Research Projects, including all or most of the Universities and other public Research centers, located in the "Superior Rhine" ("OberRhine") Euro-Region, which is Chaired by its President, Hans-Jochen Schiewer, an Internationaly active Professor of Theology at nearby Fribourg, (See President Schiewer's replies to "Eurofora"s Questions, during and after the Press Conference on the Creation of that Pioneer 1st Euro-Campus, f.ex. at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/eusciencecomissioneronchinaandeuuniversitiesgroup.html + ...).


+ Moreover, (and most Importantly, concerning These Days' "Regions of France"'s Annual 2016 Convention at Reims : Comp. Supra), the Latest Big Reform of Regional DeCentralisation in France, by Creating a brand New "Great East" Region, which Extends Now throughout all 3 Former Regions of Alsace, Lorraine and Champagne-Ardennes, has Recently incited to advance towards also Starting to Build at least some New, Joint Projects, useful to All that, much Wider Area, which, until now, used to have Not one, but .. 6 Differend "Competitivity Poles", that will, logicaly, have, from Now on, to Find an overall Coherence for the forseable Future, (Comp. ibid).

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
