EUAN meeting picture
The Heads of EU Agencies met for their first biannual meeting on 8 February in Brussels, where they discussed issues of governance and institutional responsibilities. On this occasion, the Centre’s Director shared insights on how the Centre’s cooperation model has evolved.

Established in 2006 under the leadership of EU agencies and joint undertakings (JUs), the EU Agencies Network (EUAN) serves as a platform to coordinate, exchange information and agree common positions on issues of mutual interest. The network, comprising 49 EU agencies and JUs, aims to foster good governance. By offering policy support, training, advice and expertise across diverse critical areas, the EUAN helps to build bridges between the EU and its citizens.

On 8 February, the Heads of EU Agencies met for their first biannual meeting in Brussels. During this meeting, chaired by the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA), the leaders of EU agencies approved the EUAN governance reform and discussed issues of governance and institutional responsibilities.

The Translation Centre’s Director, Ildikó Horváth, took the opportunity to present the added value of the Centre’s activities and its contribution to the work of EU agencies and bodies, emphasising its essential role as the EU’s shared language service provider. The Centre provides unique services and assistance to its partners, from economies of scale to centralised expertise, data security, stability and accessibility, as well as extensive technology integration, thus facilitating streamlined processes to satisfy client requirements by driving efficiency and innovation in its operations.

As a shared language service provider, the Centre has moved to the forefront of technological innovation, through significant investments in developing solutions that drive operational excellence and digital security and continuity. This ensures overall efficiency, as well as uninterrupted and safe operations. Furthermore, the Centre’s ability to tailor services according to specific requirements, and to scale up or down as required, provides a solid foundation for flexibility, ensuring a high level of interoperability, accessibility and usability.

We are proud to have emphasised once more the Centre’s efforts towards promoting and facilitating multilingualism in the EU, while leveraging technological developments through tailored solutions to meet the diverse requirements of the EU agencies and bodies.
