The European Data Protection Supervisor - EDPS organises a reception for the opening of its new office in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
When: Tuesday 14 March from 17:00 to 18:00
Where: Room C2.1, 2nd floor, zone canal of the LOW building at the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
With this new office in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, the EDPS aims to provide additional support in the EP legislative process, including during the plenary sessions, fulfilling its role as advisor to the EU legislators. With data protection becoming increasingly engrained in EU legislation, the new EDPS office in Strasbourg provides an opportunity for closer cooperation and engagement with policymakers. The objective is also to reinforce the cooperation with other EU institutions present in Strasbourg, as well as with the Council of Europe.
The programme includes a reception and opening speeches by:
- Juan Fernando Lopez Aguilar, President of the LIBE Committee
- Emily O'Reilly, the European Ombudsman
- Bjørn Berge, Deputy Secretary General of the Council of Europe
- Wojciech Wiewiórowski, the European Data Protection Supervisor
