Since its creation, the CAP has always been adapted to respond to the challenges of its time. This is the reason why Commissioner Cioloş launched on 12 April 2010 a public debate on the Common Agricultural Policy’s future, objectives, and principles . After a consultation and almost two years of negotiations between the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council, a political agreement on the reform of the Common Agricultural policy (CAP) was reached on 26 June 2013.

On 16 December 2013 the Council of EU Agriculture Ministers formally adopted the four Basic Regulations for the reformed CAP as well as the Transition Rules for 2014.

It is now the right time to understand this brand-new strategy, what it is based on, and how it can be implemented. Georg Häusler, Head of Cabinet of Commissioner Dacian Cioloş will speak at the upcoming Breakfast Briefing and discuss achievements of the past European Commission in this area, as well as more technical details of delegated acts. Thanks to his extensive expertise, he will clarify interactions between previous and current legislation, giving a deep insight on the latter.


Georg Häusler graduated at the University of Innsbruck in 1991 and obtained a doctorate degree in law in 1993. He started his professional career in 1994, becoming legal advisor to the European Farmers Organisation, COPA and the Secretary General of CEJA, the European young farmers Council.

He joined the European Commission in 1999, as an auditor in the Directorate General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI). From 2002 until 2005 he was the personal assistant to the Deputy Director General of DG AGRI, and personal assistant to the Director General from 2006 and 2007.

In 2007 he was appointed Head of Unit in DG AGRI responsible for relations with the Court of Auditors, the European Parliament and policy planning. Since 2010 he is the Head of Cabinet of Mr Dacian Cioloş, European Commissioner responsible for agriculture and rural development.
