Noch was für die Linke

Die EU ist natürlich kein militaristischer Club, auch wenn offenbar immer mehr Geld in Militärforschung gesteckt wird – und zwar gegen die Regeln.

Zitat aus dem EUobserver:

EU defence firms have received hundreds of millions in EU research grants for work on drones, despite rules against funding of military projects.

A report out by the London-based civil liberties watchdog, Statewatch, on Wednesday (12 February), says at least €315 million of EU research money was lavished on the sector in recent years.

“Of this, almost €120 million has gone towards major security research projects,” it notes.

Rules prohibit the EU’s “Horizon” science scheme from funding military projects.
