Bilateral Meeting Between Heads of eu-LISA and Eurojust

On 1 July 2021, EU Agencies eu-LISA and Eurojust met online to discuss their cooperation plan for 2021-2023. Krum Garkov, Executive Director of eu-LISA, and Ladislav Hamran, President of Eurojust, exchanged views regarding future joint contributions on digitalising the criminal justice systems in the EU.

In September 2017, eu-LISA and Eurojust signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for cooperation in areas of common interest and to exchange expertise and best practice in areas such as ICT and cooperation with regard to Eurojust's right to access SIS II – the most widely used IT system for security and border management in Europe.

eu-LISA places high emphasis on cooperating with all Agencies working for EU justice and security. The Agency has established many working arrangements with its partners, aiming to provide expertise and know-how to fellow Agencies within the Justice and Home Affairs domain and to generate added value through joint efforts.

Eurojust is the European Union Agency for Criminal Justice Cooperation, coordinating investigations of serious cross-border crime in Europe and beyond. As the EU's hub for judicial cooperation, Eurojust delivers hands-on support to national authorities, by promoting the exchange of information, developing prosecutorial strategies, facilitating the use of judicial cooperation tools, and implementing joint actions. Together with the Member States and an extensive network of international partners, Eurojust is making Europe a safer place for all of its citizens.

eu-LISA is the European Union Agency for the Operational Management of Large-Scale IT Systems in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, established in 2011 in order to provide a long-term solution for IT-driven internal security and to support the implementation of asylum, migration and border management policies in Europe. By managing large-scale IT systems and through the services we provide to Member States and other EU Agencies, we facilitate the implementation of one of EU citizens' fundamental rights – the right to free movement within the Schengen Area.
