outside the MFF; Austria, Germany, Finland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom think the spending ceiling proposed by the Commission is "too high"

emergency management service is to support users in the field of crisis management, in particular civil protection, humanitarian aid and external action communities by providing them with information based on space data combined with other sources of data.
ITER and GMES
, placed outside the MFF by the Commission, would be funded in Heading 1a, according to the latest version of the negotiating box.
This box' would only be used to fund GMES
and could not be re-instated under another budget heading.
The same agreement would institute a GMES
Council as a main body to control the funds.
Indeed, in a communication adopted on 11 May(1) the Commission outlines the potential financing modalities, through a GMES
Fund with financial contributions from the 27 member states, loosely based on the model of the European Development Fund (EDF).
During the pre-operational validation phase', the services of the GMES
system will be developed in the context of FP7.

into the next multiannual financial framework 2014-2020 (Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, Finland, the UK, France, Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Spain).
The EU plans to allocate around 1,200 million between 2007 and 2013 to GMES
projects and services.
