After almost a year of virtual meetings, eu-LISA had the pleasure of hosting a delegation from the Slovenian Ministry of Interior at its headquarters in Tallinn today.
The delegation, led by Minister of the Interior Aleš Hojs, met with eu-LISA's top management to discuss the priorities of the upcoming Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and areas of cooperation with eu-LISA.
The exchange also covered the state-of-play of eu-LISA's core activities, given that interoperability and the implementation of EES will be at the top of the Slovenian Presidency's agenda. Cooperation will continue on the Eurodac recast proposal, the roadmap on standardisation, the common European Data Space and other projects.
The Agency is always ready and willing to support Member States on matters regarding border management and security.
Slovenia will take over the Presidency from Portugal on 1 July 2021. A key date in the upcoming term will be 27 October 2021 on which, with eu-LISA, Slovenia will host the high-level 'New Data Management Defining the Future of EU External Borders' conference.
