European Agency for the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice

EU Agencies

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.

Network of EU Agencies

The EU Agencies were set up by the EU Member States and the EU Institutions to provide valuable services to industries and citizens and carry out specific legal, technical or scientific tasks. These activities support industries across Europe and offer evidence-based advice which helps to shape informed policies and laws at both the EU and national levels. EU Agencies add value by promoting the sharing of information and expertise, as well as offering technical services, in areas that impact the lives of Europe’s 500 million citizens.
