This short report outlines the main work undertake by Eurojust and Europol to “foster closer co-operation and operational complementarity in the fight against serious cross-border crime by increasing information exchange and improving their strategic and operational cooperation in supporting the Member States.”

This work includes:

- Connecting Eurojust to SIENA (Secure Information Exchange Network Application), through which Europol, Member States and others exchange information and intelligence;
- The “exploration of further association of Eurojust to AWFs [Analysis Work Files] (Focal Points)” – AWFs or Focal Points are pools of information in Europol’s computer system on a particular topic or group and Eurojust can now acess 17 of these;
- “Increase in information on meetings including operational and coordination meetings and participation in respective meetings”;
- “Close cooperation as regards the European Cybercrime Centre,” which opened in January this year and is managed by Europol;
- “Full implementation of the joint exchange programme”
