EU agencies form an important group of eu-LISA stakeholders. eu-LISA cooperates in particular with the agencies that operate in the area of freedom, security and justice, known as the justice and home affairs (JHA) agencies. These are
Frontex. As one of the members of the JHA agencies, eu-LISA is in the process of concluding cooperation agreements with said agencies. In 2013 a Working Arrangement was signed with CEPOL and in 2014 both with Frontex and EASO.
Further to this Europol and Eurojust enjoy a particular role due to their participation in the
governing structures of eu-LISA namely the Management Board and the Advisory Groups.
In addition to EU agencies, eu-LISA cooperates with the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences with whom a cooperation agreement was signed in 2015.
The Agency has also established contacts with the
NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) located in Tallinn.
On top of this eu-LISA cooperates with
ECHA in various matters benefiting from the proximity of the seats of the Agencies (Tallinn and Helsinki respectively). Furthermore, eu-LISA has assisted the International
Centre of Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) and its cooperation partners with IT related best practices and advice.
