EU Justice and Home Affairs agencies put focus on digitalisation

20 November 2020

The EU's Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) agencies are stepping up their cooperation on digitalisation. Earlier today, the Heads of JHA Agencies came together for a virtual annual meeting, chaired by Eurojust, where they had a first exchange on Artificial Intelligence and digital capacity building, training tools and innovative learning.

During the COVID-19 pandemic all JHA agencies have indeed been able to continue their operational activities with the help of readily available digital and online communication tools. The pandemic has therefore given new insights into how these virtual ways of working can be optimised and the agencies now aim to make optimal use of existing capacities and expertise. At the same time, the increasingly important role of Artificial Intelligence in the agencies' operational activities calls for closer cooperation in this field to ensure that AI development and deployment does not negatively impact fundamental rights.

Following today's discussions, the Heads of JHA agencies agreed to draw up a list of upcoming challenges and opportunities for joint initiatives in the field of digitalisation. Aware of the resources that future digitalisation measures will inevitably require, they called upon the EU institutions to make sure that adequate funding is available.

In close cooperation with the European Commission, the agencies will work towards the full digitalisation of judicial cooperation in the EU.
