In this regular meeting of the Heads of Agencies, a wide range of issues will be covered, including resource management and results of Agencies’ audit in 2017, while focusing on the four priorities of the network:

  • Shared services and capabilities
  • Mutual value creation with EU Institutions
  • Outward communication
  • Internal governance

The European Union Agencies are an integral part of the EU institutional system. The Heads of Agencies have established a network to provide a forum for coordination, information exchange and agreement of common positions on issues of common interest. The network strengthens the voice of the EU Agencies and promotes good governance.

ECDC will chair the Agencies network until February 2020. The flag representing the Agencies network is now located in ECDC's Boardroom.
