The Agency and the European Data Protection Supervisor signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Brussels on 30 March to facilitate and strengthen cooperation on common areas of interest.
The agreement will ensure both the Agency and the EDPS continue to build on their cooperation. They will regularly share information about upcoming work and data that have been collected. They will also invite each other to relevant expert meetings and will explore opportunities to collaborate on research activities.
To facilitate these exchanges, dedicated contact points in each organisation will be created. They will act as the central hub to ensure regular contact is made. This will include meeting at least once a year to review areas of strategic interest and to exchange views on data protection and privacy challenges.
