eu-LISA proudly received a visiting delegation from the
European Parliament’s LIBE Committee today to discuss the legislative proposals
for regulations on Interoperability.
Topics on the agenda included the relevance of
interoperability of Large-scale IT Systems in facing today’s challenges, a
high-level view of the impact two new Regulations will have on eu-LISA and the
current generation of JHA systems, the key functional changes that will be
required to make the current systems interoperable and project management as
well as organisational, security and budget related aspects that will stem from
the proposed regulations.
“Capacity building in the Member States is one of the
essential elements of the overall effort to implement interoperability” said Krum
Garkov, eu-LISA’s Executive Director. “In this regard, there is an ongoing
discussion between the relevant EU Agencies about the need to have a Joint
approach to capacity building and towards maximising the effects of technology.”
The meeting was followed by a visit to the Operators room where
all visitors were able to see and learn about some of the “hands-on” work and
details of the Agency’s 24/7 obligations.
The visit concluded with a brief description and
illustration of the ongoing site improvements.
