Representatives of the EFTA Secretariat, Financial Mechanism Office (FMO), EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA) and EFTA Court gave presentations on the day-to-day operation and management of the EEA Agreement, including recent developments and challenges.
This introductory seminar is intended for those who work on EEA-related matters in national administrations, EU and EFTA institutions, permanent representations and missions to the EU, or in other organisations. The EFTA Introductory Seminar on the EEA provides professionals, both inside and outside the European Union, with a thorough understanding of the EEA Agreement and how it integrates Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway into the EU’s Internal Market.
The seminar is held twice a year, the next taking place on Wednesday, 3 February 2016.
EFTA would like to thank all the speakers and participants for making the seminar a success.
