Dear Research and Innovation,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

For the period between 2019 to date:

1. a list of all meetings and/or calls between the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation and the GD4S lobby group, including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, during which projects on synthetic fuels and/or projects on hydrogen were discussed.

The list should include: date, individuals attending and organisational affiliation, as well as the issues discussed;

- all minutes and other reports of these meetings and/or calls;

- all documents prepared for the purpose of the meetings issued both in preparation and after the meetings took place.
- all correspondence, including attachments (i.e. any emails, mail correspondence or telephone call notes) between the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation including any Cabinet Members and/or officials, and GD4S lobby group discussing “synthetic fuel” and/or “hydrogen”.

2. all documents sent by the GD4S lobby group to the DG for Research and Innovation related to their synthetic fuel projects and/or their hydrogen projects.

To the extent possible, I prefer documents in electronic format.
Should my request be denied wholly or partially, I kindly request to explain the denial or all redactions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I would expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.

Please confirm receipt of this application. I look forward to receiving your reply within 15 business days, as established by the regulation.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms. Cicculli,

Thank you for your e-mail of 13 December 2021. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered yesterday 15 December under reference number GESTDEM 2021/8115 following your email of clarification regarding the first point of your request.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on 14 January 2022. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data via that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address, and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply from, the Commission.

Dear Ms. Cicculli,

Please find attached the reply to your access to documents request in subject.

According to the standard operational procedure, the reply should also be sent to you by registered post. However, due to the extraordinary health and security measures currently in force, which include the requirement for most Commission non-critical staff to telework, we are, unfortunately, not in a position to follow this procedure until further notice.

Therefore, we would appreciate if you could confirm receipt of the present email by replying to [DG RTD request email].

Thank you very much in advance,
