“Father” of rescEU
A key criterion for the selection of Stylianidis was his productive and successful tenure in the European Commission, as his contribution in the field of pan-European civil protection is unquestionable. Christos Stylianidis has proven that he can formulate policies and implement them by actively participating at the operational level.
His work is the creation of rescEU which has significantly upgraded the field of civil protection in Europe, with the participation and synergy of all Member States. It is perhaps the most important tool in the field of dealing with natural disasters (fires, earthquakes, major accidents) but also health risks such as the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, it is the body that institutionalizes European solidarity and gives another dimension to shaping civil protection in the 27 Member States. It is worth noting that it was one of the 20 greatest achievements of the five-year Commission under Juncker. RescEU has been tested and proven to be useful in recent natural disasters in European countries and only last August with fires in Greece and Cyprus.
