eu-LISA - Chairman of the Network of EU Justice and Home Affairs Agencies

eu-LISA is holding the chairmanship of the network of EU Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) Agencies in 2015, aiming to further enhance information exchange and practical cooperation among the nine JHA Agencies in areas of their mandate. The network is composed of EU Agencies such as CEPOL, EASO, EIGE, EMCDDA, Europol, Eurojust, FRA, Frontex and eu-LISA as well as the European Commission and the European External Action Service. The Agencies are in charge of the coordination of a wide range of security and judicial matters in the EU ranging from cooperation in police, border control, asylum, judicial and drug related matters to fundamental rights, gender equality, provision of training for police authorities and operational management of IT systems. In 2015 the network is going to focus its work on pre-agreed priority areas, i.e. awareness raising on and wider sharing of existing analysis and reports, identifying synergies in the provision of training to law enforcement authorities, determining the needs for cooperation in IT services and solutions  and enhancing the visibility of JHA Agencies at national and EU level through various communication activities. The first meeting of the network is going to take place at eu-LISA’s headquarters in Tallinn on 4 March, to be followed up by meetings in Tallinn as well as at eu-LISA’s operations site in Strasbourg later in the year.
