5 Years of Working for a more Open and Secure Europe5 Years of Working for a more Open and Secure EuropeIn 2017 eu-LISA celebrates its fifth year of operations. These first five years have been an exciting journey as we built up a dynamic and agile organisation. Today, we provide high quality services and solutions to EU Member States, contributing to their efforts to make Europe safer. These five years have been challenging, but rewarding. In this short time, eu-LISA has become a reliable contributor and partner to the Member States and the European Commission in implementing justice and home affairs policies. We would like to thank all those who have helped eu-LISA to establish itself, to stay focused and to further develop its capabilities. Special thanks go to the eu-LISA Management Board and Advisory Groups, to our colleagues in DG HOME at the European Commission, and to the European Parliament LIBE Committee as well as the Network of Justice and Home Affairs Agencies. We also say thank you to each and every wonderful person who has worked for eu-LISA in Tallinn, Strasbourg or Brussels!18{9b47a889-222a-49cc-9a04-7eec81cf4ab9}
