The EDPS opens office in Strasbourg

On 14 March, the EDPS has opened his new Office in the premises of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
With the new office, we aim to provide additional support in the European Parliament's legislative process, including during the plenary sessions, fulfilling our role as advisor to the EU legislator.
Data protection is becoming increasingly engrained in EU legislation, the new EDPS office provides an opportunity for closer cooperation and engagement with policymakers and other EU institutions present in Strasbourg, as well as with the Council of Europe.

The inauguration ceremony featured speeches from the Chair of the LIBE Committee of the European Parliament, the European Ombudsman and the Council of Europe.
