EU Agencies at the European Parliament
On 6 & 7 December, the Director of the Translation Centre, Máire Killoran, will participate in the EU Agencies Forum at the European Parliament in Brussels.
This major conference will explore the work of the EU Agencies and their contribution to achieving the policy priorities set out in the Juncker Agenda. It will be attended by MEPs and stakeholders from business, industry and civil society.
The event is being organised by the EU Agencies Network, which brings together 44 EU Agencies and Joint Undertakings, and acts as a collective voice for its members. It is currently chaired by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
The Forum will be addressed by, among others, the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz and the Vice-President of the European Commission, Kristalina Georgieva.
Participants will learn about the outcomes of two studies on the Agencies undertaken by Deloitte, Brussels and the Centre for Strategy & Evaluation Services. They will also have the opportunity to attend parallel panel sessions covering four topics: 1) Boosting jobs, growth and investment, 2) Citizens first!, 3) Justice and Home Affairs and 4) Innovative Europe.
