EU agencies form an important group of eu-LISA
stakeholders. eu-LISA cooperates in particular with the agencies that operate in
the area of freedom, security and justice, known as the justice and
home affairs (JHA) agencies. These are CEPOL, EASO, EIGE, EMCDDA, Eurojust, Europol, FRA and
Frontex. As one of the members of the JHA agencies, eu-LISA is in the
process of concluding cooperation agreements with said agencies. In 2013 a
Working Arrangement was signed with CEPOL and in 2014 both with Frontex and EASO.
Further to this Europol and Eurojust enjoy a particular role
due to their participation in the governing
structures of eu-LISA namely the Management Board and the Advisory Groups.
In addition to EU agencies, eu-LISA cooperates with the
Estonian Academy of Security Sciences with whom a cooperation agreement was
signed in 2015.
The Agency has also established contacts with the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of
Excellence (CCDCOE) located in Tallinn.
On top of this eu-LISA cooperates with ECHA in various matters benefiting from the
proximity of the seats of the Agencies (Tallinn and Helsinki respectively). Furthermore,
eu-LISA has assisted the International Centre
of Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) and its cooperation partners with
IT related best practices and advice.
