Joint Eurojust-Europol Annual Report 2016 to the Council of the European Union and the European Commission(11220/17, pdf):

"While Europol and Eurojust have continued a close daily cooperation in their core operational activities in 2016, both organisations have also strengthened discussions at managerial and strategic level through regular Steering Committee meetings and the annual High Level meeting.

The effectiveness of this coordination and cooperation is illustrated by 3 examples in which both organisations jointly supported national authorities. These cases dealt with serious and organised crime, cybercrime and counter terrorism, including a financial crime component.

Furthermore, for the first time since the establishment of either agency, a joint meeting of the management boards of each organisation took place in December to consider strategies for enhancing cooperation."
