The eu-LISA Industry Roundtable aims to bring together representatives of the industry, Member States’ authorities and EU institutions; providing a forum for eu-LISA stakeholders to exchange views on developments of different technologies applied to the migration and home affairs’ domain.

Industry presentations propose their contributions to the topic selected, featuring pioneering technologies, products and services addressing the Member States’ capability gaps in the specific area of interest.

eu-LISA currently operates three large-scale IT systems – Eurodac, SIS, VIS – and is working on the development of EES and ETIAS. These systems and the pre-existing ones are being built/adapted to ensure Interoperability – improved access to information stored in EU information systems and identity management at an EU level. In addition, the Agency’s portfolio has been enlarged within the justice domain: with the development of ECRIS-TCN, the management of e-CODEX and the development of the Collaboration Platform for Joint Investigation Teams (JITs).

The last edition of the eu-LISA Industry Roundtable, took place in November 2023. It was organised in cooperation with the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

Given the Agency’s increasingly important role in the EU’s justice community, the event addressed, for the first time, the justice domain. ‘Digitalisation of Justice – Turning Challenges into Opportunities’ focused on some of the associated specific challenges of the judicial procedures and cross-border judicial cooperation in the EU. More specifically, the event focused on:

    • Digital technologies to facilitate access to justice (Secure videoconferencing tools; digital evidence platforms; alternative dispute resolution tools);
    • Artificial intelligence in justice – opportunities and challenges;
    • Advancing the digitalisation of cross-border judicial cooperation. Practical solutions for challenges at hand.
