EU Agencies & Institutions
The EU Agencies Network was set up by the European Union (EU) Member States and the EU Institutions to carry out specific legal, technical or scientific tasks. Based on evidence-based advice the Agencies help shape informed policies and laws at the EU and national level.
The 44 decentralised EU Agencies, headquartered across the EU Member States, touch the lives of 500 million EU citizens every day through their work.
The Agencies contribute to the implementation of EU policies across a wide variety of fields, including vocational education and training, health and safety, freedom and justice, innovation, research and business, and transport and satellite systems.
